Here’s a Recent Class Review

The topics covered in our recent Keep The Stories workshop inspired many ideas, both for clearing clutter and creative uses of those special pieces we wanted to keep for sentimental reasons.

Mary Elizabeth is a seasoned facilitator and experienced teacher, and it shows in the thought that went into the content of her workshop and her facilitation style. She gave lots of room for us to share our ideas and had samples of story pieces she had made. Her materials were very well organized and she provided worksheets for us to plan out our own projects. It was a wonderful way to spend an autumn afternoon, finding inspiration and planning for wintertime projects.  I left with detailed plans for my own decluttering process and many ideas on how to preserve my special stories.
