Maiden Voyage

Rocky the writer is leaving her dining room harbor.

I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to get my feet wet at Andrea Kuhn Boeshaar’s FREE seminar. I am driving 10 hours from Akron, OH because I can’t believe the talent that’s going to be there teaching for free — Lisa Lickel, Shellie Neumeier, and Andrea herself.

As a side note, I’d like to give a shout out to Wikipedia. Thanks for nothing Wikipedia. I went over there hoping they would go into the tradition of champagne christenings, but instead I was given this: “Maiden voyage of a ship, aircraft or other craft is the first journey made by the craft after shakedown (testing). A number of traditions and superstitions are associated with it. Notable maiden voyages that ended in disaster include those of the RMS Titanic, RMS Tayleur, Batavia and the Swedish warship Vasa.”

I don’t really think my one day adventure out to the West Bend, Wisconsin seminar fits in the “notable” category to anyone except me, so I think I can avoid disaster. I’ll let you know.



  1. “The untold want by life and land ne’er granted,
    Now voyager sail thou forth to seek and find.”


    And seek and find me while you’re at it! I’m about 10 hours away

  2. That’s all very exciting, Rocky! I’m quite sure your maiden voyage will be super sweet.
