this week is all about getting ready for my workshop on saturday at the lavender farm.. when i first started planning, it all seemed soooo far in the future and now – voila – the time has come! i’m printing lots of info, putting folders together and planning the details of the agenda.
also making some small lavender-based mixed media pieces to offer for sale. and cards.
oh, and i baked some yummy coconut banana bread with lemon glaze for my guests.
lots of other details – hoping i get them all done in time!
i’m beyond excited that this is actually happening. i came very close to pulling the plug…. while i have some lovely participants signed up for the class, it’s not enough to actually “pay the rent” for the space. i’ve been pretty stressed about this and figured it was a done deal. not going to happen.
but i so hated to give up something i have dreamt of and planned for for so long… so last week i had a little heart-to-heart talking to with myself. do i want to teach the class? absolutely! is it a good class? i'm confident of that. will i still be able to put food on the table if it doesn’t turn out to be a “money maker”? yea, i guess so. are there people signed up who want to attend? yes again. will i benefit from the experience? no doubt in my mind
so, i dropped my initial expectations and moved full-steam ahead. the fact is that i love teaching and always learn right along with the students. perfect weather predicted and i know it’s going to be a fabulous day!!
