Do you get the feeling of both excitement and fear when something you’ve been hoping and praying for suddenly falls on your laps? Please tell me I’m not the only one….please!
I’ve just been invited to teach craft every Saturday for 16 weeks at the Artwyn Art Gallery in Lagos (starting February 2014) and I’m elated! I can hardly believe how fast the year is moving already. It’s a great opportunity and a really heady feeling. One of the organizers called today and asked me to hand in my 16-week syllabus and now reality is setting in. “Huh? (cobwebs clearing from my head), a syllabus?”
I’m a little scared and I feel a bit overwhelmed and vulnerable. And as is typical of me, I’ve gone paranoid with thinking and planning. “What courses do I teach?”, “how do I prepare the handouts?”, “how do I apportion the time?”, “can I do this?”, “of course I can do this!”, “how do I do this?”, “what materials do I need?”……its a crazy train station in my head. But I know that I can do All Things through Christ who strengthens me. “Fear not, for I am with you”, He says.
If you do know anything about craft classes and how to organize them, I’d really appreciate your support and advice right now. Yeah? Thanks.
Ok, here’s a quick and much-needed digression. I still got my Arm Candy project going on and thought to share a picture of some of the ones I made recently. I think they are cool. What do you think?
I really would like to hear your advice on how to organize my craft class. It would be really helpful. Really (okay, I’ll stop that already).
Please follow my blog to get updates on new projects (I’ll be sharing pictures from the craft classes as well) and don’t forget to share with your friends.
Lots of love from craft heaven,
