JoLynn was an awesome -I really enjoyed learning from her! She was very clear and easy to understand! The only challenge I had was the last part of class went really fast and could've used more time to walk us through different steps as she did in the first half of class. I had trouble following some actions that didn't work 100% so I resorted to following her steps she did vs doing them myself.
