Back to the classroom

Not literally, of course, schools don't go back until next Thursday and when we do return, we hit the ground running.  First day back we have Year 11 GCSE mock exams starting and Senior Presentation Evening later on.  You'd have thought they would let us have a day's grace before making us work wouldn't you? 
No, the classroom I am referring to is the one in my study with the computer and all my crafty bits.  I've been awful at doing the last couple of Shimelle classes that have been daily prompts over the course of the month and I hate signing up for something that I don't manage to complete.  So I have gone 'off piste' and signed up for a couple of classes that other people have mentioned.
One that Mel mentioned over at Curiouser and Curiouser and one that Rinda mentioned which is Creative Jump Start .  The first one, called 'Just one sketch' sounds like it will be fun and not only that, it's to raise funds for a good cause so I'm looking forward to that.  Two prompts a week for six weeks, that's doable - right?   And for a bargain price of £5.  The second one had me when I read the title.  A Creative Jump Start is just what I need to start the new year off properly.  And just to make it perfect - it doesn't cost a penny!  Yay!
Can I tempt anyone else into joining in too?

They both sound good and I'm looking forward to them both starting.
New Year's Resolution?  Done!!!

I'll be there for the sketch class. I'm thinking of using at as a chance to make some pages about my time in the Guides

I saw the sketch one yesterday and I'm giving that some serous thought, but I don't know anything about the 2nd one, so off to check it out now :)

Yea! Glad to be seeing you in the CJS class. I"ll have a go look at the sketch one as well.
My kids go back to school on Tuesday the 3rd, and I start back on the 9th. Still have lots of grading to do but will start that over the weekend.

I don't think I have the energy to jump start anything but the sketch class sounds like it might be do-able! Looking forward to seeing how you enjoy both ...
