I'll be starting off in North Yorkshire teaching 2 workshops at Art from the Heart owned by the hilarious and fun Dyan Reaveley. Then I'll head to Birmingham and meet up with Suze and Tim to teach a workshop to store owners at the Craft Hobby + Stitch Show. During Stitches I'll be demoing for Personal Impressions, then onto London for an appearance on QVC UK (watch Feb 23rd online here!) and then home! whew!
I won't be Twittering much because I don't dare use or even turn on my cell phone when I reach the other side of the pond for fear of a giant cell phone bill. And I'm not bringing our laptop since we now use it to watch all our shows by hooking it up to the TV set. I don't want to leave Paul without anything to watch for 9 days!
If I know Suze, she'll be blogging every day so you can follow along with our adventures via her blog!
I am looking forward to seeing England again! I'll see you when I get back!
I am also excited to announce that I will be teaching at Creative Escape this August in Arizona! The lottery for registering for Creative Escape will be open ONLY until February 15, 2010. That's less than a week away! Check it out here so you don't miss it!

All over the Twitter-sphere the storm was tagged as #snOMG, #snOMGasm, #Snowcalypse, #Snowmageddon .... and my favorite #kaisersnowze for all you Usual Suspects fans out there.
Here are a few photos we snapped from our camera phones of this historic snow!
Poor Paul has no snow boots so we did the plastic baggie booties. At least they match!

And Paul created a little video montage:
Then after being snowed in for two days we started tormenting the cats....

February 5th, seemed like a long way away, but Paul leapt into action immediately: resumes have been emailed like mad, networking like crazy, and even a few interviews.
The cliche of saying it feels like a roller coaster ride is true. We are at the part in the ride where we are chugging up the steep hill, each day that has passed has moved us further up the hill as we got closer and closer to Feb 5th.
We can't see how big the drop is on the other side .... sometimes roller coasters trick you into thinking it's a steep hill when it's just a slope or a series of smaller hills on the way down. Or sometimes you chug up that big hill, heart racing in anticipation to realize, it's a straight drop down.
Will we be frightened or laughing on our big ride? I don't know. But I know for sure we'll be holding hands!
