“Let me learn you some knowledge.”
That’s the thing HH loves to quote lately (in the most country-fied way possible). It’s from a guy on Twitter, but I won’t say his name because sometimes he’s crude (but hilarious). HH’s parents were school teachers, and he inherited that gene. Learning is part of life for us every day. With everyone’s kiddos back in school, classes are on my mind again, too.
You may have noticed, given yesterday’s post (Getting Schooled on a Green Apple Tablescape).
Has life become continual learning for you? You know what they say (whoever “they” are)…
If you’re not growing, you’re dying.
Along my adult journey, I’ve been a huge learner from books. Are you a little sad that books aren’t as popular these days?
I will never part with my books! Are you a page turner, too? Through the years, books gave me guidance for raising kids and many other life applications. The Bible has been the most helpful book of them all!
Soon after buying our first house, I taught myself to make window treatments by reading Sunset books and others like them. Books are a terrific resource. But these days, on-line learning is my choice. It’s all due to video. It takes less time to absorb information and put new skills to good use.
I began my blogging journey just over five years ago. That’s when I took my first on-line course. If I sat down to count the number of on-line courses I’ve taken, it would amount to around twenty-five to thirty. Does that sound crazy? It’s been very helpful in learning new things – from tech stuff to photography and even help with emotional aspects, as well. (Not crazy emotional, y’all. I’m just a little bit crazy. Not a lot. Wink.)
Please understand. I knew very little about the workings of the internet when I started Curtain Queen Creates. I had so much to learn!
At first, I thought there was no way to learn certain things (like sewing) on-line. After learning, myself, about different subjects through on-line courses, I saw how sewing courses could work. So, another batch of learning began – how to create on-line courses. And, now I have courses for you if you want to continue learning and creating soft furnishings for your home.
I don’t mean to get all sales-y, but I do want to share the courses with you, now that there are three. Someone asked me recently where my courses are, so I thought I should tell you. You can find the courses first in line in the drop-down menu under the sewing tab in the header above – “Home Decor Sewing Courses”.
Here they are, each linked to the page that describes what’s inside the course.
For those of you who join a course today through Friday, you’ll receive a free bonus pillow class (especially for fall!) that’s appropriate for all levels of sewing. (Yes, even the beginner can do the bonus lesson after completing the Learn to Sew course material). This pillow bonus expires Friday night at midnight! 🙂
Now. Do you plan to keep learning new things? What skills are you interested in developing?
