Tomorrow, Sunday, the day you’re reading this blog, is my first Color of Woman Intentional Creativity TM workshop.
Today, Saturday, the day I’m writing this blog, are final preparations for said workshop. I’ve made a checklist weeks ago to make sure I won’t forget anything, but there’s still more work to be done. I want to get this right.
This is big for me. This is the beginning of my new career.
Wednesday, I drove up to the venue to assess how it’s all going to go down. The venue is lovely, by the way. My writing critique partner offered her workspace in the basement of her home for any or all of my workshops. It’s a big rectangle with windows on three sides overlooking a lake. My muse informed me she was pleased. I consider myself very fortunate and blessed to have such a generous friend.
I’ve four students, or Beloveds, as we like to call them in this teaching modality. And we treat them as such. I’ll be getting there an hour earlier so I can make it a beautiful and welcoming space. Just finished their nametags before I began my blog.
Am I excited? Very. Am I nervous? Not yet, but I expect to be. After all, it’s been about 8 years since I’ve done anything like this. Am I prepared? Getting there. Got my stuff laid out.
I’ve yet to re-read my notes and watch a video of Maestra Shiloh Sophia teaching a similar class. I’ll be doing that next. (Mr. Al is being a darling and feeding me today so I can focus.)
What will we be working on? I’ll be showing people how to make affirmation cards for themselves. With the help of paper, paint, sharpies and glitter, we will be transforming stories that hold us back into stories that pull us forward.
Have a great week, peeps! I leave you with the view from my window.
