Talk about being busy! I feel like I just got back from the Vegas show, which was great! Thanks to everyone that stopped by the booth. I had a lot of new goodies to show. And I still have plenty, including more new beads for the Art of Adorning bead show going on tomorrow, April 22nd at Bowers Museum. Click HERE for more info!This is a wonderful one day show put on by the Bead Society of Orange County. It's a big end show, with lots of finished pieces, along with bead vendors and textiles.
And just two short weeks from now, May 6th & 7th, it's the SCUBA show. It's a month early this year…so that is keeping me on my toes…actually, it's keeping me on my workbench! I have a coupon good for $3 off the SCUBA show admission. Please email me at email@example.com and I will send it to you. Ok, gotta go finish packing for tomorrow. Hope to see you soon!

We are Vegas bound! This weekend is the annual Glass Craft Expo at the South Point in Las Vegas. And not only is it the Glass Expo, but the ISGB is combining their annual conference, the Gathering with the Expo to make it SUPER SIZED! I have been extremely busy getting lots of new beads made. I am particularly proud of my blue whale…its the best one I've ever made. I couldn't even wait to get it off the mandrel before taking a photo! The 2nd photo is almost all of the beads I have made this year. I've been very productive, but unfortunately I haven't had time to do my taxes (yuck) so next week upon my return, I have to get that done. I'm sorry my website has been lacking attention. It's a new version of software and it wiped out my other pages, like my show schedule. I haven't had time to re-do them..or "look" for them as they may be somewhere in the "cloud". April 22 I will be in Orange County for the Art of Adorning show at Bowers Museum. Always a good show…and only day so make your plans! May 6th and 7th is the Long Beach SCUBA Show…yes, it is a month early this year. I will be very busy for the next several weeks. After I get a break, and get those taxes done, I will work more on my website. And maybe, I will put some beads up on etsy too! Like my newest manta ray beads, inspired by the beauties I spent time with in Socorro. Thanks for checking in and I hope to see you at one of my upcoming shows.

Hello there! Whew, it's been a while! The software I use to update my website "went away" when I updated my OS…along with a few others. We were considering trying something new, but I couldn't wait any longer so I updated the old one.
more soon after I figure out this new program! So here I am! So busy this year! I will add more soon, but I wanted to let you know I will be teaching a Beginners Glass Bead class at Pacific Art Glass. January 14th and 21st, 2017. It's a 2-day workshop and I am very excited for this opportunity! I will post more shortly…gotta learn a little more of this software. Happy Thanksgiving!

The temps have been in the high 80's lately and now there is a bad fire burning about 50 miles from here. The temps are in the triple digits there! So the sky is an eerie orange/brown'gray. We feel for the fire fighters! I wish I could take them all popsicles! Imagine how nice it would be this little penguin...he looks to be off to a cool place!
Summer is definitely in full swing. Finished another SCUBA show last month. Thank you (sorry it's late) to all who stopped by the booth. Always a fun and busy weekend! As well as after, lots of orders the year! Anyway, next show is the Bead Society of San Diego on August 6th & 7th at the Scottish Rite Center. Another very busy show. And very exciting show news, I will be back in San Diego doing a new show in September called MACNA
This is a show all about aquariums! So if you have an aquarium, or you're interested in them, this is the show for you! I will be in the Atlas room, booth 907. I will be on "Artist Alley" with a bunch of other talented artists! Really looking forward to this. As for the rest of the year, I will be doing a home show first weekend of November. If you live in the general area of Redondo Beach, shoot me an email and I will add yo to that mailing list. Ok, gotta go find a fan and sit in front of it. Enjoy your summer and stay cool!

Hi Everyone! It's my most busy and exciting time of year, SCUBA show time! I am always most inspired, most creative and crazy busy at this time of year. Memorial day weekend, what's that? a holiday? Not for me...it's my non-stop, less than a week before SCUBA show, so no "holiday" for me! I am excited about my new designs and beads this year.I worked on bracelets this weekend, so here is a little teaser.
And for all you frog loving fans, I have a few sea themed frogs too! The SCUBA show takes place on June 4th & 5th at the Long Beach Convention Center. It is a HUGE show, with lots and lots to check out, learn and experience. If you're a diver, or thinking of becoming one, I hope you have the opportunity to check this out. It's one of the best shows in the US!
After the SCUBA show, next stop San Diego in August! I hope to see you at one of my shows. I apologize for not having more (or anything) on my Etsy and Amazon shops. It's really hard to do both the shows and keep up an online shop I love doing the shows and talking with people in person, so that's my priority. I do my best to keep up, but it's tough. I'm a "one gal" business, so I can only do so much.
I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend. Please remember what the weekend is for, and give a little thought and thanks to those who have helped keep peace and freedom.
