Saturday at CU is the jam-packed with Creative Classes from breakfast until dinner. The students are kept busy with their scheduled activities all day, with a variety of techniques and projects.

Corner Bookmark card class by Jenn Royal.
Sewing techniques for Scrapbookers class by Christie Dunham.
The students were arranged in “sororities” to attend classes. This helped them move through their schedule without too much confusion about where to go and when to be there. The sorority names were Megha Inki, Lota Croppa, Alpha Stampa and Sighma Scrapha. Cute, right?
The professors at Creative University are hand-picked by me. Being a teacher at CU is a huge undertaking, and I’m a demanding boss. (hee hee!) The pay is lousy and the hours are long, but the fame and adulation from legions of CU students is totally worth it. (hee hee again). My professors receive hand-made thank you gifts, a small token of my appreciation. This year’s aprons were oh-so-sexy. At least I think so. And handy for crafting, with all the pockets. And showing off your fanny.
Teachers also received a humongous flower pin, that could be worn in their hair or attached to their clothing. Many layers of glitzy prom-dress fabric went into each flower, and each one was different. Want to make one? See my how-to here. I hope that my professors will get much more use out of their flower pin than they would from a prom dress.
