Registration began last night for Silver Bella 2009 here. And I didn't sign up. And I'm very restless about this decision. Very.
I really want to go again because it was such a great retreat.......full of crafting, conversation, laughter and glue guns. My kind of fun.
Last year I made friends there that I would love to see again. We've visited each other on our blogs but it's not the same as sitting at a table with them.
Last year the registration was on June 30 if I remember correctly. This year it was bumped up to April 13. I think that's part of the hesitation. I just wasn't ready to think about it.
Last year was a no-brainer because my idol Mary Engelbreit was the guest speaker. I got to be in the room with her! This year it is the editor of an arts magazine....someone I'm not familiar with.
This year my good friend has invited me to visit her in London....where her husband is working and they have a house. I know my limits. I can't do London AND Silver Bella. But why do I have to choose.......why can't I do London AND Silver Bella? Oh, yeah........money and time off work.
But I really, really want to go to Silver Bella. I'm not sure I can deal with this. What would you do?
