Free On-Line Traveler’s Notebook Classes!

Howdy friends!  While many of us are practicing voluntary social distancing and others are experiencing restrictions, shutdowns & mandatory shelter in place directives, I’ve been racking my brain to figure out what I can do to share a little bit of light, positivity & creativity in our crafting community during this unprecedented, uncertain time.

The best way I can think of to do this is to share some of my knowledge & ideas with you! 

As an avid… ok, who am I kidding…  ADDICTED Traveler’s Notebook user & lover for the past 5+ years, I’ve learned so many different ways to use & incorporate them in my life in fun, productive and meaningful ways. 
 

For the next (I don't know how many Saturdays!), I invite you to take a break from the around the clock Coronavirus news coverage, the worry & the stress and join me as I share some of the things I’ve learned in a FREE 2-part online class covering all things Travelers Notebooks. 

Can't join us live, no worries!  You'll be able to watch the videos later on my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/laylebymail
