On Cloud 9

I think that it was only fitting that my final crafting class of the weekend was taught by Nancy Martinez of Cloud 9 designs. In Nancy's class, we put together 12 darling calendar pages. Nancy is a wonderful teacher, and no doubt one of the best I've ever learned from. She said something that was wonderful, yet so simple, "You will not finish this project tonight. You may get through March or April. You will get through January and February". I found it utterly relaxing to hear those words. All to often, when I sit down for classes, the project far exceeds the time allotted. I always feel like I'm in a race. Just hearing those words calmed me, and taught me the importance of using them when teaching classes in the future.
