Well I survived my first attempt at teaching a class! and so did the attendees!! lol
I tell you what, I came away from there exhausted and with even more respect for the girls who ran the E2C classes!!! Girls to organise, teach and run those huge classes is an even more AMAZING achievement than I realised..you girls rock
I have a lot to learn and there were some time issues etc,...the class ran A LOT longer than I expected,
But I think everyone had a good time and came away having tried something new.
Some of the girls flowers didn't turn out as well as they would like, but I hope they go home and try again
(just a tip girls if you do... don't wet your flowers TOO much... just nice and damp ;-) and microwave them in little spurts and play and work your flowers in between those spurts...have fun!)
So to all the girls who went to the class
THANK YOU for being so wonderfully patient.
THANK YOU for getting in and trying new things!
THANK YOU for all the laughs
I really did have a wonderful group of girls.
and THANK YOU to Lindy and Leah and Sheoak Craft Cottage (sorry no link.. but there will be soon!!)
for the opportunity...
I enjoyed the challenge so much that I have signed up to teach another class at the Sheoak and also down at Scrapworkz in Port Lincoln. (oh my!! glutton for punishment!!lol) but they won't be for a while yet.
and also a quiet little thank you to my friends for your support at the class and also supporting me behind the scenes with encouraging words and pep talks ;-)
After this class I think I will aim my classes for beginners (leave the hard stuff to the experts lol)
This is probably for self gratifying reasons.
To watch a beginner gain confidence as they try things they haven't tried before and then look at their finished creation with a look of pride on their face really gives me a buzz. ifykwim??
Also I think a flower making day is on the agenda, no layouts, no pressure, just bring your scraps, tools, sense of humour and come and play...sounds cool huh?
oops look at the time!! Enough prattle, I better get the kids up and ready for school!!
If you managed to get through all that......thanks for listening (you have amazing stamina or maybe you are a glutton for punishment too??? lol)
and thanks for stopping by!
This was me..... just before the class!!! hehe
