Keeping my nose to the grindstone ...


Today I got the great news that my Painting with Fire workshop was accepted for Bead Fest Wire next April. You have to submit your class proposal so darned far in advance that it seems like you're always waiting to hear ... from somebody!

Things are progressing with the book. Today I sent off the last of the how-to descriptions for the projects. Now begins the finishing of three final projects, the inventory of materials and tools I need to bring in order to complete the projects at North Light, determinations as to what projects need some pre-assembly prior to the photo shoot.

It's hard to believe that I'll be writing to you from Cincinnati in 3 weeks.

Hope you all have a great weekend and get some "creating" time!

Congrats on BeadFest Wire! But especially congrats on entering the home stretch for the book. It seems like it has all gone so quickly. You've taken this and run with it and that is just so good to hear about!

Barbara, that's just freakin' fantastic! Old gals rock!! You are really movin' along. Glad to know that the book is doing well-- can't wait to meet up with you in person and pick your brain-- ha, ha! Really, you have truly inspired me that I can go for it and do one too. Then we can do a book-signing tour together!!
