I am gonna spill the beans...

even tho I am still nervous as all get out.
I attended my first ever scrapbooking class
last night at my lss to see what the 'classes'
are all about. I loved it and had such a great
time with women I have never even met. I have
been talking for awhile with the owner of the store
and she has been asking if I will TEACH A CLASS!!
For those of you that do not know this is a big,
big, big fear of mine...speaking in front of others!
Well, it's official now!!! My work will be displayed
in the next newsletter and I am set to teach in
JANUARY!!! I am totally freaking out here! I know
that I can do this, tho!! I will be teaching a class
on doing four layouts in one night with felt and paint!
Two of my trademarks...easy right?? The owner took a
few of my layouts and when I went to leave last night,
they were already prominently displayed right by the
door! I am soooo excited! So here I am...conquering
my fear of all fears!! I can do this!!

I felt the same way, actually , I STILL feel the same way when I have to teach a scrapbooking class. But really, as long as you can help the people in your class to create something wonderful, they will love you. Trust me.
