Certifiable

I am in Richland Hills taking a certification class at 10 Seconds Studio. This is going to be a fun 3 days. There are 3 store owners ,sales reps, a Club Scrap Designer, and "people".This was using PMC, a precious metal (silver) clay,pvc pipe and playing cards.We all made some jewelry that Cheryl will fire and do other mysterious things to tomorrow and viola wearable art! We had a super lasagna dinner,complete with heart shaped brownies. Tomorrow we have two classes and Sat. is filled with tests! There are so many things we can do with metal and I am sure we will all think out of the box.
Getting here was a challenge. I am directionally challenged, even with Jill giving me directions. There are multiple 820 roads going N S E & W and I think I found them all. Lost was among several words I used the hour I was checking out each 820! My hotel is so new is wasn't on my GPS (Jill) so I ran into 10 Sec., Cheryl and Megan were nice enough to help me get the 1 mile to my hotel! I am sure some of you have seen the Uncle Sam dressed tax man on the side of the road, holding a sign, trying to get you to come in and let this company do your taxes, don't even try to talk to that man. I asked him if he knew where Ft. Worth Mall was, not because I was going shopping, the hotel was close to it, and the poor man was so drunk he had no clue even where he was. Just the company I want to do my taxes. I found my hotel, checked into my room and promptly walked out the door, leaving my key card in my room! What a day!

AWESOME that you are getting 10 sec certified. Not awesome that driving in the big D made you certifiable. Anxious to see what you learned. Take lots of pics.

Hope the rest of your trip goes smoother! I ALWAYS get lost even with my GPS so you are not alone with being directionally challenged! Can't wait to see what you made
