Hey artsy peeps! Well, this is a sneak peek into the world of teaching outside my Georgia boundaries. It was a wonderful experience...I am thinking this could be a regular event for this creative chick! Friday was the first class I taught, and we were making little birdie friends. I am no longer going to be making these as a part of my regular studio so I thought it was a fabulous way to end their stay with me. Sort of a pay it forward. I had three lovely students; Christine and Becky are Mom and Daughter and then wild card Wanda. (I am telling you Wanda is ME in 30 years. Yep.). Now I must interject I was not in the least bit disappointed in only having 3 students (one of my classes was canceled because she didn't have enough students. Poopoo).....but I was worried that we'd be done by lunch and be staring at each other the rest of the afternoon! Yeah, so not the case. These girls worked through lunch and ended I think later than time allotted. Not by much, but still!! Woohooo bird making!!!
I just can not thank these ladies enough for being a part of the day. It really, really made my heart full. It's a little hard to describe what teaching others does for my soul. I know this sounds nuts, but honestly I couldn't create without being willing to share it. It indeed takes a special person to share skills and knowledge with others willingly. And you most importantly have to be willing to give up a part of yourself to your students. And not get upset if one day, they become successful from an idea you sparked inside them. Because the chances of that are pretty good. If you teach them good enough.....hehehe....So make lots of birdies my new friends. And I hope some of their sweet goodness will bring you good fortune in the near future.
Live in JOY......are you??
