Wowza. That one word probably sums up the entire experience but of course, I'm not just going to leave you with that ;) It may not seem like it but this workshop sent me on a roller-coaster ride that has way more hoops than our beloved Space Shuttle roller-coaster.
When Abby e-mailed me about hosting a workshop through Heima's Design Cafe, I was ECSTATIC. I *literally* had to do a silent scream of excitement as I was in my 9-5 office at that time. I had to read the entire e-mail from "Hello!" to "All the best, Abby" just to be certain that they are indeed asking me to host a workshop.
After the initial is-this-real moment, my mind went into planning overdrive and once that's done, it hit the panic button. What if no one signed up? This fear genuinely paralyzed me. I launched the workshop on October 12 and easily got one eager person to sign-up. And that was my list for a while. It was discouraging and I almost wanted to pull the plug. But I didn't and I'm so grateful to have had this inner courage in me who pushed me to just.go.for.it.
I hustled like a mad woman and I got three more people to sign-up. At this point, I already felt warm and fuzzy inside. I would never have imagined that someone like me would be hosting a workshop to one person, let alone four people who love crafting and memory-keeping as much as I do. Thank you, Universe.
With four people, I knew I wanted this workshop to be intimate and relaxed. I wanted us to sit down as friends loving the same craft of memory-keeping. And that's *exactly* what happened. I met four cool ladies - Mia, RJ, Alexis and Camila - and loved their genuine curiosity for memory-keeping. It was a whirlpool of amazing conversation, lots of laughs and tons of crafting supplies after that. Despite what the numbers say, Day by Day was one heck of a success for me! :)
Much love and gratitude to the Design Cafe team for making my dream of hosting a workshop come true! You can bet I would do this again in the future ;)
Over to you, my friend: have you attended any memory-keeping workshop? What were your favorite parts/things about it? I'd love to know!
