Happy new year to all! It's the start of another new year...we've made our resolutions, we've eaten our last cookie and drank the last of the champagne for a while...now what? Well I can tell you that making beads is top on my list! Next stop, TUCSON for the Best Bead Show! I am so excited about this show. It is 5 days long and I can't wait to see a bunch of friends as well as making new ones. I am also excited that the "To Bead True Blue" show is starting on Tuesday, the 30th, giving me an afternoon of visiting folks I didn't think I'd have a chance to see, like Kate Fowle Melaney and Carla Beyerlein of Hearts of Glass.

The beginning of the year also makes me think about getting my books and taxes together, although I always seem to be doing this around the 14th of April...but not this year, I have help!

I wish I could control how many photos I post of Sebastian, but I can't help it! He's so handsome and I just love him to pieces. Hopefully soon I will post pics of beads! Better go get on the torch!
