Next week I am on the move again! I am traveling to the city where the majority of my blog readers and Facebook fans call home – Houston. That’s right. Houstonites (Houstoners? Sorry, I’ve just been told it’s Houstonians…) give me a lot of love and blog traffic and it’s time that I pay them a visit. I will be there January 11-12 for a milk paint demo, book signing, breakfast and one workshop. It’s going to be a packed couple of days, but I’m really looking forward to it. Would you believe I have never been to Texas? I’ve been to Russia, but I’ve never been to Texas! I’ll be there with my boots on and I’m excited to meet Mandie from Altar’d, my retailer and hostess, and a few blog friends like Lesli, Christi and a some others.
If you’re in the area and would like to attend any events, here is the schedule…

I also wanted to announce that there is a workshop this weekend at Greenworks Building Supply in Vancouver, Canada. It is being taught by the president of Homestead House, the manufacturer of my Milk Paint, so it will be very informative! Here are the details…
