The calm after the storm....

I feel like I can finally breathe from my insane and crazy April schedule! I started the month in Las Vegas, then a small two-day craft fair, a weekend in the wine country, two meetings for the LAUPS and the L.A. Bead Society Bead Fair all the while dealing with bronchitis. What fun! So I am breathing better in a couple of ways...finally got my voice back too. This weekend, April 29 & 30th I will be teaching at The Mandrel. I think it's full, but you can call Donna for more info.
The Los Angeles Bead Society Spring Fair was a blast!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my booth, both my new and old friends! I had lots of shell sets, like my new colorful set pictured above. That one went fast! And many fun fish to choose from, like my "Oliver" fish made from olive and raku glass.

My next show will be the BSSDC Bead Bazaar in San Diego on June 3rd & 4th. Click on the link for more info and a $1 off the $3 admission coupon.

I knew April would be busy, but things are CRAZY! But crazy in a good way, of course. I will have a booth this coming Sunday, the 23rd, at the L.A. Bead Society Spring Fair.

Well if any of you have ever been on my website prior to March 26th, then you may have noticed everything is different.

We are still working out the bugs and playing with themes. Also the new gallery has a shopping cart link but it is NOT set up yet. If you are interested in any of my beads, please send me an email and we can go from there.
Thanks and enjoy the site!
Viva Las Vegas!

What a great show!! The Las Vegas Glass Expo 2006 was a ton of fun. Not only did we have a good show, talk to lots of fun people but I was able to spend two days taking a class with Leah Fairbanks! Leah has been working with glass for over 20 years and is incredibly knowledgeable on the subject. We learned so many new techniques and color combos, which I have already begun to apply to my beads. and of course I was at my torch first thing this morning! I will be post some photos this evening, that is if they turned out. I didn't take as many as I intended since I was just so wrapped up in the glass! I met a lot of new folks and got to visit with some bead buddies that I don't see often. It really was a great weekend. I want to thank my sister Lisa for all of her help. She really helped me have a successful show and it was fun spending time with her too! And Lisa was happy too, she walked away with $1000 from a slot machine!! WhaT ever!
