Very Happy!

All packed and ready to go a day early! This is definitely a first! Looking forward to just playing around tomorrow and relaxing a bit before I leave on Wednesday!

Once again Jim Moore has made some new metal stamps. He makes these once a year for The Bead and Button Show! I will have them at meet the teachers and and at my booth (#10). They go really fast ..... so get there early! They are $30 each.

I can't wait to catch up with friends from all over. A lot of them are coming in early so we should have a great time before the show as well as during the show. I will do my best to post photos as the days go by. You can also keep up with the goings on on facebook..... just go and friend me and mention that you saw this on my blog so I will kinda know who you are!

Stay tuned.........

A Few More......

What a wonderful day it was here in the NW! Started with the sun rays coming through the window (a very welcome sight), the gym with friends, studio time, sun time, studio time, sun time.... well you get the picture!

The studio was very kind to me today.... these are a few of the bracelets I made. I am looking forward to another fantastic day in the studio tomorrow. Unfortunately the sun isn't supposed to make an appearance...... guess that just means more studio time for me.

Have a great weekend!

Busy, busy, busy.......

I have been crazy busy getting ready for Bead and Button, but never too busy to miss an opportunity to spend time with Ava and Dawn. We took Dawn to The Woodland Park Zoo and had a wonderful time. It is always so great to catch up with each other and just talk and laugh a lot.

Now back home and working away! I have some great new beads that I am working on and lots of new silver bracelets that I am real excited about..... will share those later this week!

Looking forward to the farmer's market tomorrow! Have a great weekend my friends.

Happy Mother's Day

My beautiful mom.... I so wish that she was still here with us and could have met my wonderful husband and know about the wonderful life I am living today. I think in some way she does...... Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful Mom's!
