I'll be underwater...

...for the next two weeks, I'll be in search of new inspiration! As well as sea slugs and the craziest critters in the world! I will be off email until May 18th. If you would like to inquire about an order, email me and I will respond when I return.

In the mean time, I would like to thank my friends who are taking care of our babies....Charlie, Kathi, Maryann and Maya. And speaking of babies, this is Maya and her new baby kitty, Kira. I met Kira this afternoon and she is adorable! See you all when I come back to the surface!

Spring is in the air!

Spring is here in So Cal, the flowers are blooming, the sun has been shining and the beads shows are abundant! I was in Las Vegas at the beginning of the month...always a fun show and weekend there. And even though "lady luck" decided not to join us, Lisa and I managed to eat, drink and be merry!

So moving on this month, on April 26th, I will be at the Bowers Museum for the BSOC Art of the Adorning Bead Bazaar. This is a biggie! It's a wonderful outdoor show with lots of vendors, plus you can visit the museum while you're there. (if you can pull yourself away from the beads!) I don't have an exact booth number, but we are right along the sidewalk on 20th Street. I'll be sharing the booth with Charlie Warner of Charlie's Creations. And if you can't make that show (or need more!), April 27th, I will be showing at the L. A. Bead Society Bead Bazaar in Culver City. I'll be in my usual spot...first booth the entrance into the the main room. I am working on my inventory every day, so I'll have lots of goodies all weekend long. Like my new froggie pair "Spring Fever" and plenty of shell beads. (click pics for more info) I hope to see you at one of the shows!

On to Vegas........

The Las Vegas Glass Craft & Bead Expo is taking place this weekend, April 4th through the 6th at the SouthPoint Casino and Hotel and we are THERE! This is a huge show and a really fun weekend in Vegas. My sister, Lisa, who you show regulars are getting to know, is joining me as usual. We are looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces and meeting new glass bead fans too. Be sure to stop by and say hello, we will be in booth C5, second row of the bead bazaar area in the convention hall. Lots of new beads, including my new "Tidal Froggie" and many shell sets in new colors. We hope to see you there!
