I taught my very 1st scrapbooking class this afternoon. I was so nervous this morning just waiting for the time to pass until I had to leave. Seriously. My stomach was in knots - it hurt so much. I prayed all the way that God would just calm my nerves, ease the anxiety I was feeling and give me the right words with clarity, etc to help teach effectively.
When I got to the store I still had a few last minute things to do but it was no biggie (however, I will make sure that doesn't happen too often 'cause that only adds to the stress too!)
The ladies started arriving and pretty soon everyone was there and we were ready to begin.
Things went really, really well. My nervousness seemed to disappear as I walked around helping each of them or answering questions. I was enjoying (although my feet were getting kinda sore! LOL!) They seemed to be enjoying themselves too (that's always a good sign) and they loved the project - which is good thing!
I must admit that I'm so glad that my first class is done & over with. I'm exhausted! LOL!
I learned a lot today and will know what I need to do differently next time. But it definitely was a great experience and I'm already working on my next class projects!
