Well the Camp has come and gone and I have taken this week to chillax and come back to earth.
It was quite a challenge and I am very glad I had this experience. My helper Lynette and I were absolutely dumbfounded when we realised we had 80% beginners. I am used to a class with a mixture of experienced as well as beginners. We certainly were kept on our toes as the students got under way with their projects.
The week went so fast. I heard the ladies enjoyed themselves and some are hoping I will return again next year.
Coming home and sitting with it for a few days, knowing more of what to expect and what to cater for I feel I would enjoy experiencing this again .- that is if they will have me back !!

More than a week of unimaginable preparation I am close to ready and feel heaps more buoyant after having felt like I would never get ready in time. I wanted to achieve this goal, teaching at Camp Creative, but didn't give much thought to what was involved. Now I know - OMG !!! - I am still glad to be going and you certainly earn your dollars.
I am looking forward to the classes and have a heap of projects to teach covering all from beginners to experienced. I have had fun putting together some great kits for necklaces, earring, rings, bracelets, pendants etc. so I doubt there will be anyone unoccupied or disappointed in what I have to share.
I have never taught 5 days in a row before and am wondering how I shall go and how my energy levels will fare.
I intend replenishing myself, each afternoon, wandering around the beautiful property of friends Hector & John at Mt Kalang.. They have a lovely home with a river running through it and there is a great swim hole to refresh yourself in at the end of each day. How lucky am I ??!!
I will be taking pics of the classes and will post them on the blog so be sure to check in for the stories.
