REMAINS OF THE DAY updates and information:
This class has been like standing under one giant shining lucky star. Enrollment has been consistent since the class began last December. I never imagined it would grow so large. Or that I would form bonds with so many of the people in the class. Or that so many nice people would show off their journals and spread the word this far and wide.
THANK YOU. I am grateful.
Martina Tierney says
Mary Ann, thank you so much for this generous gesture! I’m delighted to know that I can go back to the videos in my own time. To be honest, I haven’t had much chance to do all the stuff I wanted, and I was thinking my time was running out. I’ve started studying photography, and the homework for that has been quite intensive, and has taken up most of my free time! I’m sure you’ll find you’ve done the right thing – I think more people will sign up to do your courses if they know they can access your videos anytime – the problem is fitting it all in… isn’t it? Let me know if you decide to do the same with ‘Stencilry’ as I have the same issues there…! Meanwhile, loving your blog, as always. Best wishes Martina x

(Happy Dance) YES! Thank you so very much! I hardly ever get online lately and just now see how you are extending the December cut off for your first class…..cuz i havent made my journal yet…..
Thank you so so much Mary Ann…you are awesomeness solidified…I love your blog, I love your journals and your travels…you sooo inspire me. I just shared all of your information with a friend of mine. She is going to love this.
Thanks again for YOU.
Mary Ann, Does this mean that if I sign up for the class now, things won’t really expire in June? I work fulltime and want to do this but nervous about dropping so much money if I can’t finish and it goes away in June… Thanks for your patience!
that’s awesome! and the photos in this post….so pretty.
OT – can’t reach you through the email link, get error. can you send me your email address?
Thank you for continued access to the videos! I love watching them and plan to watch again before I make my next journal. I was thinking how I would miss them. Thanks again!
Your spirit shines in your sharing of your most generous gifts..you are wonderful. I have yet to complete a ROD journal but the time is there and I will share when I do my first one. To move at my pace without a deadline has been very relaxing and the process so enjoyable with just creating.

Recently found your blog and fell in love – your just right up my ally and I love reading about your adventures since I don’t have them like you do. Your so fantastic to offer two classesfor someone who can’t afford it right now. I was debating taking this but now I gotta do it. Can’t wait. Keep this blog going, your a bright spot.
Barbara Hagerty says
Mary Ann, you are the BEST! I haven’t actively displayed pics of my ROD journal in progress, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t gotten 110% from the class and your awesome instruction so far! Thank you SO much for deciding to leave the class open! This year has become an extraordinarily busy time for me with my family, and a host of other things that need doing, and your decision to keep the class open will give me the time I need to actually be able to finish all the wonderful things I started! I read your blog and soak in your pics and travel videos like a sponge, and I know that I should leave more comments, but how often can I repeat FABULOUS, AWESOME, etc.? You have a unique and beautifully uplifting style, and the way you share it with your students–including the little ones–is truly an inspiration. Hats off to your generous, artistic nature! And pat yourself on the back, too!

Gwen Delmore says
I was pleased to see the exact kind of kitchen chairs I grew up with at your table! I think we had that tablecloth, too! Very generous of you both to offer scholarships for the class!
Thank you–that is so generous!
diane cook says
That is so very sweet of you both! Someday I want to just linger forever on your blog….
Love ya MA~
Hi, Mary Ann:
I recently signed up for your “Remains of the Day” course. I enjoyed it very much. I pretty much watched the videos one right after another. I can’t wait to make my first RotD journal. It was serendipity that I signed up for your class. At the same time I was going through the videos, I was going through boxes of my Dad’s ephemora. He died a year ago and I’ve had a hard time getting through his stuff because it’s a little depressing. I opened up a box, though, that had his report card from 1937! I also found tons of travel stuff from when my Dad was stationed in the military and we lived in Europe for a few years. I can’t wait to incorporate all of these treasures in my RotD Journal! I’ll send you a picture when it’s done. Thanks for sharing your work in the world.

Mary Ann, so generous of you to extend the class! Thank-you so much! Janey

I could not believe the sky that evening. It was a stunning experience. There was lightning inside those glowing columns of cloud mist that were trailing between the sky and earth. The color was indescribable, an illuminated apricot peach pink pearl, exquisite. I’m so glad you captured it! I won’t likely ever forget the sight.
Kristi Shreenan says
Your site is so inspiring, and your kindness overwhelming re: offering 2 classes as a gift. What is your e-mail address? I would love to drop a line to be considered.
Thank you again.
You are indeed a wise woman.
Brooks Ann says
Your pictures are gorgeous, your travel journal is magic and your generocity to others is wonderful! What a beautiful person you are MAM.
A sigh of relief! I watched the videos over and over again in hopes of committing them to memory. Just last night I bound the journal together. How fast a year does fly and was hoping that you had forgotten about removing the blog. Thanks so much for keeping it going and for the both of you to offer paid spots is most gracious. Thanks again!
What a delightful surprise! I had just been trying to figure out how I was going to cram in another session of watching the videos one more time before December. Thank you!
Thanks so much Mary for keeping the class and videos open. Unfortunaley I took sick just after signing up for the class and have not been well enough to get started on my journal. However needless to say, I have been collecting up my bits and pieces and “remains of the day” and enjoyed watching the videos numerous times. So I’m doing the happy dance today with this news. Thanks for all the inspiration, love your travel journals! Hope to be back on track real soon so I get cracking creating my own journal. Have a wonderful day!
