The Good Life
Get Your Slice

Do you find yourself daydreaming about creating amazing projects, but feel like you never have the time? If so, join Amy Tan in The Good Life where she'll share tons of creative tips and tricks for infusing creativity into the everyday. Whether you're looking to make projects for publication or profit, or just for the sake of creating, this workshop will help you find the time for what you love. Creating projects from thread, paper and found objects is a passion that we all likely share, and Amy has turned several hobbies into flourishing businesses.

I started out interning at a modeling agency at the age of 20 and then was offered a job as a fashion stylist. I then went from working with elite models to hand-crocheting arm warmers and being featured in numerous publications, to having my own line of hand embroidered t-shirts that sold at Bloomingdales - all within a span of 5 years. Most recently, I've collaborated with American Crafts to design the Amy Tangerine line of scrapbooking products, which launches this summer. I believe in making things and making things happen. Creating a life full of moments and meanderings, adventures and antics, friends and freedom, are high on my list of priorities. If you love being inspired and creating, living a life that is everything you've dreamed of, then this class might be for you. I will even share some funny stories and lots of behind the scenes details that I've only told really close friends.

After taking this class, you'll have a new perspective on how scrapbooking and making things can really be worked into your busy, hectic life. It will become more of a freeing hobby than one where you never feel caught up.

Are you taking a trip where you know you'll have a little free time to get creative?
Amy will show you how to collect souvenirs and scrapbook along the way.

Are you stuck in a rut because you just feel overwhelmed with the amount of product out there?
Amy will show you how she manages to create projects in a small space, with a plethora of product options.

Each week of class will focus on some of the components that make up the good life. Over the course of four weeks, you'll create and be inspired by fashion, home/office, travel and crafts. You'll also learn plenty of techniques that you can use on your various projects, which aren't limited to just fabric and paper. In this class, you will spend a little time learning, absorbing, feeling inspired and then be able to spend more time actually experiencing and doing. Isn't that what life's all about anyway?

Class Supplies: You likely already have so much of what you need for this class. I want to stress the importance of taking the tools that are readily available to you. Just your basic supplies and if you want to do some sewing, you may want to use a machine. It's optional though because I will also show you some fun hand sewing techniques.
Additional Items: You will need to perhaps budget for some new innovative scrapbook products that will be introduced soon! I'll show you how to get the most bang for your buck with the latest and greatest products, and of course how to upcycle and repurpose what you already have on hand.
