The count down has begun!

This is how I feel ...








because this is what I'm doing ... 

~ In less than three weeks, I'll be a full-time resident of St. Petersburg, but there's so much happening before then ...

~ We've begun the Painting with Fire Workshop eCourse.  It's in full swing and people are posting photos of beads.  Even though It's been more than a little nerve wracking getting things flowing, I can breathe now because the wrinkles seem to have been ironed out. We have 10 more videos and 7 more chats to go.  Still lots of fun to be had! 

~ On Friday, relatives are coming for the day to help us pack.  John and Diane are some of the most generous people I know!  Thank you!

~ On Saturday I give a slide presentation and demo to the Mid-Atlantic Society of Glass Beadmakers.  I'm really looking forward to it!

~ The following Thursday, we leave for four days at Bead Fest Spring.  Friday will be a day of shopping in NY with some members of the Painting with Fire Ning. Saturday and Sunday I'll be teaching. We'll return home on Sunday. 

~Somewhere I have to fit in a trip to the doctor and to the dentist! 

~ Saturday, the 21st I have a workshop at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts.  It's the Enamel Explorations Workshop, which is a lot harder to prepare for than the PWF Workshops, but very much fun.

~ April 23 is the end of the eCourse, but members have access to the site until May 31.  I'm looking forward to these upcoming videos when we get into liquid enamel, decals, and compound beads. :-)

~ On April 24 we get in the truck and drive to St. Pete.


In another post I'll tell you how much moving expenses can be!

My goodness, your schedule makes my head spin. I don't know how you do it all. About those moving expenses, groan, it is quite shocking isn't it? I am always so amazed by your energy and so pleased to hear how much PWF had grown and expanded into so much goodness. Good luck with all your preparations.

I don't envy the crazy busy but palm trees and blue skies year round . . .

Wow, Barbara! Your schedule is daunting. Good luck with it all. Having fun makes everything easier!

Wow, I'm exhausted just reading that. I'm glad everything is going well for you Barbara and hope all the packing isn't too tiring and stressful.

Holey moley! What a crazy busy month. Good luck with all of it. And I can't wait until you're here in Florida and offering workshops regularly. Welcome to the Sunshine State! (But it's going to be 90 today. Bleech! No more en plein aire workshops.)

I liked this post very much as it has helped me a lot in my research and is quite interesting as well. Thank you for sharing this information with us.

Reading your "to-do" list Barbara makes me giddy! But - I get the pattern, its so familiar to me - take care and stop to smell the roses along the way :)

I am so envious of the NYC trip! I've been twice but I was a knitter then and found all the fabric, ribbon, and button shops.

Good luck with the move and all the things you've fit in around it! We're moving at exactly the same time and I couldn't imagine doing all that you're doing on TOP of the move! I wish you all happiness in Florida!
