Have you ever taken classes for any of your crafts or hobbies?

No, my Mother taught me to crochet and make afghans, and I basically just taught myself to make floral arrangements. I have gotten a lot of complimets on both, and I enjoy doing both.

  • I took the Wilton cake decorating classes at Hobby Lobby about 5 yrs ago. It was lots of fun. Had a good time. I do cakes on the side and make a little money off of it. :)

  • Nope, I have taught myself to knit, crochet, sew, decorate cakes, make cosmetics, make candles, do calligraphy ... you name it. If it is written on paper somewhere I can learn it! LOL...

  • And I should also add i am still friends with a couple of people who were in my class. So for moms saying they don't have any friends... get out there and take a class. Great way to meet people! Also a great way to help transition from being a working mom to a stay at home mom. Gets you out of the house 1 night a week with people who do not live with you.

  • Yes I have taken quite a few classes for photography online and for Photoshop since I love digital scrapbooking. I believe in continuing education in everything you do.
