Help.....I'm Moving!

I don;t actually need help with the moving part. I just need help with the "coming to grips with the fact I'm moving" part! You see, after 18 years of serving in the same church in Columbia, Maryland, we are heading to Bluefield, Virginia to start a church on the campus of Bluefield College. Not sure if you know a lot about Columbia, Maryland or Bluefield, Virginia but they are radically different places to live. Columbia is a planned community which means every detail was thought of when this city was started. Bluefield, well.....not so much. It's a beautiful place with beautiful people but not a "planned" community. Enough said. This whole situation reminds me a little  a tremendous amount of the TV show, Green Acres. We will be that fish out of water scenario for sure :) I thought a great way to help me transition, would be to create a new blog, in addition to this craft blog, that would document my occasional  daily comedic episodes of my life in Bluefield. Here's where I need the help. I really want the theme of this new blog to be centered around the fact that what I expect my life to be there doesn't actually match up to reality. I need blog title ideas. Something along the lines of "My life is an Oxymoron" or something like that. I just don't want it to appear that I am slamming Bluefield. Nothing could be further from the truth. I love that town and I can't wait to begin our new lives there. Send me your ideas of new blog titles please:)

Things are really starting to rock and roll!

I just received a second order for necklaces:) I must admit that this is a difficult time of year to be bringing on something of this magnitude. There are 6 weeks of school left which means, as a teacher, I have a zillion things to do and a zillion pieces of paperwork to complete as well! Did I mention that I'm also ending my employment at my current school? Ahhhhh......the plot thickens:) So the cherry on the top is that in the midst of all of that, I am making necklaces to sell so I can raise $ to go on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. And, guess what? I can't think of a better thing to spend my time doing. Thank you to all of those who are placing orders. Your contribution means more than you will ever know.
