Bead and Button Show
Boy it has been a while - sorry about that!! Summer is a busy time for everyone, especially is you do art shows and dog shows:) I do both!!
To catch you up on what is happening - I just accepted another position within the same company. I start tomorrow! I am very sad to leave all of the great people I worked with for the prior 4.5 years but also excited to work with some new people and learn a totally different set of skills.
On the dog front - Piper took BOB at the Kalamazoo shows last weekend - YEAH Piper! We only showed one day but it was a 4 day show - wishing I stayed for more:(
Rachael is officially done with school on Tuesday and she also got a new job!!!! Bob Evans YUM!!!! Say goodbye to McDonalds where she has worked for the prior two years!!!
On the jewelry front - I have not had much time creating new things, but I am working on a pretty pink bracelet - will look great for summer with a nice tan hand/arm:) I know sun is bad, but I just love having that glow- makes you feel so good!!
I am going to the Bead and Button show this week - YEAH!! I have had this trip booked for over 6 mos and it is finally here. It started out when I was looking for a class on learing Keum Boo. I found a location in CA but that was a little pricey considering plain fair so I was told to check out Bead and Button in Miwaukee, WI and sure enough they offered a class.
Here is a link http://www.beadandbuttonshow.com/bnbshow/default.aspx.
This is the largest consumer bead show in the world but don't the the word bead scare you as it has everything and so many classes. I wanted to take several more but I was too late in registering:(
I will be going on this trip alone which really is the only way to go as no one in my family would want to walk around a bead show all day then wait for me while I take a class. I am super excited and get to learn a new technique!!! Here is a link which outlines it very nicely - so excited!!!
I will post when I get back from my trip. Have a great week!!!
