Creative Designs Method using the Cricut for cake decorating

I am back from an intensive 2 day class by Linda McClure. We used the Cricut to learn more about cake decorating, using the Creative Designs method.
It was a lot of fun and a great group of women. There were 10 states represented among the 18 of us.
If you want to know more about the Cricut cake decorating class using the Creative Designs methods, click here. Especially if you want to take the two day class, like me, me in person! Then sign up for the Omaha class. There are also some fabulous 4 hour classes as well.

What I wanted to blog about was the "weather" that kept me stranded in Memphis for more hours then it would have taken to drive from Memphis to Jackson, MS....but just thinking about that frustrating night nearly brought me to tears so I decided instead to leave you with this quote that was said over and over and over again at the class:
"Work smarter, not harder." Now, I bet Linda might not have thought that up (but maybe she did) but is is just such a good quote to live...whether it be cake decorating, parenting, cleaning, your job, etc. Just because you are working hard does not mean you are doing a great job!

It was fun to get to see my parents, brother and sister, plus 2 nieces. Jeni wrote about the class, too, so go read her version if you want. Oh, and one funny thing. A friend from Baton Rouge blogged on Monday about how much she loved visiting Natchez, MS that weekend...the same time I was visiting! If only we'd known each others plans, we could have met up and had some Fat Mama Tamales or something :)

1 Words to brighten my day:

You and Jeni look to be all dedicated and everything! We really enjoyed having you here, and definitely appreciate the help you and Jeni gave us helping some of the others.

Wanta come to Rocky Mount? Just kidding - you have your hands full with the boys:)
