this past Friday, I traveled to BeadFest. I had the pleasure of finally meeting Barbara from Painting with Fire, and while watching her demo, I ran into Jenny from Jenny Davies Reazor and Marsha of Marsha Neal Studio. Yea! I always love seeing people unexpectedly. The show was good, it's been better, but beggers can't be choosers, and I prefer to see, feel, touch what I buy...you understand, yes? Didn't get many beads at all, but I did get some yummy cabs! Pictures to come, but this is one of the stones that I scooped up, and ta-da...a wonderful ring just in time for summer! Love it!

Recall the disaster from last week BTW? It's going to be fabulous! but it might take a while.
Otherwise, I've just been trying to catch up, ordering materials...ouch!, writing tidbits for press releases, attending to show details, packaging and sending orders...the boring business end of things, and that doesn't include my personal life details, and of course cleaning my house. There's a lot going on, but I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that I can make it out the shop this week.
