I'm doing just that this week. I'm off to Florida this week to learn how to design with Polymer Clay. It's actually a certification and I'll learn quite a bit about the product, how to create home decor items with it and how to teach others how to use it!
I hemmed and hawed about it until all the cards just fell into place and it worked out where I was able to go, hubby could be here for the dogs and boys and I found a hotel for 1/2 the rate of what I thought I was going to have to pay. Plus, I get to visit with one of my friends from England that I haven't seen in way too many years! She lives about an hour away and is going to drive up to have dinner with me on Tuesday. I am really excited to that my friend Charlie from North Carolina is going to the same certification and we'll get to catch up with each other. I haven't seen her in a couple of years and it will be fun to see each other again. Click on her name to go by and visit her blog! She is super talented.
I am looking forward to sharing what I learned when I get home with you all! I'll be away from blogland until next Sunday. Have a fabulous week and I hope you'll let me know you came by to visit.
I got some painting done this week too - finished (FINALLY I KNOW MOM) a pitcher and glasses for my moms friend in Germany. Will get it mailed soon! Hoping to get some other things done before I mail it.
I started on my Feb. paint class projects as well and am really looking forward to those projects and the projects that are swirling around in my head that I will teach in the next couple of months.
All you have to do is leave a message and I will draw a name from all comments left between now and Feb. 14th. Let your friends know and tell them to reference you and I will add your name into the pot that many more times.
