Just when you think life couldn’t get busier, it always seems to do it. The last couple of weeks have been so packed full of events and tasks I haven’t had a chance to just sit and relax, let alone update my blog or websites.
There are a lot of really good things going on just now. I am very excited about a few of them in particular. The guild is growing quickly and we have a lot of interest. I have met some wonderful people that have jumped right in and are helping out. I never knew that starting this thing was going to be such a large task, but it has been and what a fun ride it has been so far. We have held two meetings here in the Akron area and our first Columbus meeting is this Wednesday night. I am excited to meet up with some of my friends down there and meet other new people as well.
It looks like we (the guild) will be doing a book fair with Barnes and Noble to help raise funds for a literacy organization called First Book. I will post more information about that soon. There is a lot that still has to be worked out, but it all has to be submitted by next week, so I really will have information soon.
I have been working with both Beads ‘N More and Embellish to work on my class schedule. I have my classes now booked with them through June. I will finish up my Norton Schedule here soon and will post all three months classes here and on my website. (www.melissamuir.com)
