Personally, 2020 Was Often FUNN!

January 2020

I hit my 20-year anniversary, hosted a consultant only event, and decided to leave direct sales . Nothing scary about that! :o) It was time to do my teaching apart from a corporate connection. No drama – just a decision.
FUNN University wasn’t working with the frequent release dates, and limited demographic. Being tied to one company did not fit into the FUNN University model any longer, and my first allegiance was to teaching my students, not sales.
No regrets – I have loved what FUNN University has become with this change.
Crafting on campus in 2021 is promising to be the place to be.

March 2020

Craft Roulette was born!
This FUNN improvisational paper card game show has introduced me to so many card makers in the chat, through submissions, and as guests! I can’t imagine a better way to spend my Friday evenings. Thank you for your enthusiastic response to our show.
More on Craft Roulette as we approach CR’s first anniversary in March, but we are all in with this FUNN game show.
Look for more exciting changes and guests in 2021.

“FUNN University is one of the things I’ve liked best about this year – and it allowed us to continue meeting and sharing ideas and projects, despite Covid!  You’ve covered so many different things in all of the classes that I’ve enjoyed, even tried in some cases, but I also like knowing that they’re all still there for me to go back and refer to or to try my hand at. ”

After leaving direct sales, the Labs have changed and for the better, I believe. We recreated our labs to focus on teaching ideas, instead of products (which we all seem to have in abundance). We strive to teach understanding the process in addition to showing the process. The students have thrived, too! I am so proud of each one of them. Here are some of the areas we have concentrated on in our second, but maybe really our first year.


was started and now has 5 Intro to courses for students! The students have spoken, and this is a keeper!
What’s cool about this class was watching the students grow in understanding!

Digital Card & Scrapbook Layout Guides called FOUNDATIONS


  • currently 12 foundations with a total of 89 variations
  • exclusive FUNN University card sizes such as Lil’ Chubbies, Mini Chubbies, and Mini Slims
  • 84 different supporting card examples


  • 13 2-page scrapbook layouts
  • 18 different supporting scrapbook layouts

Plus, there are unique Foundations specific to a project in a lesson – yes, it is all one tidy package.

Study Hall – a live, non-recorded bonus. Designed for a live Q&A opportunity for students, but you never know what I pop in for a surprise!

Lounge – I love our Lounge for interacting with you, seeing your helpful sides, and those recipes! Oy! It is a great tool for communicating with students.

Facebook FUNN University group – used for emergency updates when Eunice is being pesky on the site & reminders. I also brag on students there and share their encouraging words.

Student Showcase – Heck, yeah! I love showing off student homework when they choose to submit it. This has become a really FUNN part of FUNN U.! December’s Student Showcase is tonight at 6:30 on

Cards+ Labs

What’s really cool is, FUNN U. students could tell you so much about this card! Colors, placement, tips, the design, and what is inside.

These classes are thoughtfully prepared, well attended, and based on feedback and homework submissions, very inspiring.

Currently there are over 200 card samples (most not shown on any public social media) of the lessons & over 300 cards in homework!

Scrapbook Lab

We went down in the weeds with scrapbook trends in December and the most important page of the year to make.

I often hear people give up on scrapbooking, and I find that horribly sad. We have developed an easy process and teach you how to use your supplies easily for years of memory saving satisfaction.

Just because you quit scrapbooking or haven’t scrapbooked, doesn’t mean you can’t or won’t. Try us.

Currently there are over 70 sample layouts in the samples (most not shown on any public social media site) from the lessons & over 100 layouts in homework!

Crop Lab – We’ve done a lot of different things during this class, and that suits me just fine.



This is an insanely great offer, but when the year ends, so does the special. USE THIS LINK for your discount!

Eunice – we hope she will stay in her time-out corner, but that doesn’t seem too realistic! That brat.

We’ve had a good year, but I think 2021 is going to be a great year at the wheel and on campus. Be a part of it. Tune in and enroll!

Thank you so much & have a very crafty new year – with us! ❤️
