I'm assuming that "Wer ist Karen Russell?" loosely translates to "who in the heck is Karen Russell?".
I don't speak an ounce of German, so I can't tell you exactly what it says - but the basic gist of it is that I'm teaching a bunch of workshops in Germany this Summer!!!!
I don't use exclamation marks very freely, so please understand that when I add 4 of them to the end of a sentence, it means that I am really, really, really excited (and that my favorite number is 4).
And here, where it says "tour dates" or "tour daten" ("touring" sure does sound fancy...maybe I'll have to start using that word when I am teaching anywhere other than my hometown...in fact, I'll be on tour in Eastern, Oregon this weekend at Scrapbooking Outside the Box), it lists the cities I'll be teaching in (and I hate to admit it, but I've only heard of Berlin and Hamberg).
Josh & Annie are going with me to Germany.
Actually, Josh and I had started planning a trip to Germany a few years ago and had planned on going in February 2006.
Annie was born on Feb. 13th 2006, so she botched our plans a bit.
Back to the trip...
The owner of Living Memories, Heike Lenz contacted me awhile back about this trip and while I was at CHA we had a chance to meet and work out all the details (and after having a chance to meet her, I can tell that this is going to be an amazing experience).
And it's such a great thing because scrapbooking is really taking off in Germany.
Which makes me even more excited about this whole thing.
Ich bin sehr aufgeregt (thanks Josh and a German dictionary website for help with that translation).
(and that's me and Heike at CHA).
