Off to Austin


I'm off to the Austin Bead Society annual show tomorrow in the wee hours of the morning. This is my second bead show ever and tell you what, it makes me nervous. Last minute prep. Hate that I work right up until the last possible moment. But that's really just part of my nature and I need to accept that. But the up side of all of this is that I'm staying with a very dear friend who just moved to Austin. I do so wish I had more time to spend with her. Oh and my sweetie will be doing his roadie thing and that is worth his weight in gold, doubled. It is just so hard to do a show all by my lone some.  The bestest part of all is that in this crazy summer of mine, is that after the show, I will be home until Labor Day weekend. Yee Haw! I have so many ideas of how I will spend some of that time, including a few books I've been wanting to nap with.

So if you are in the Austin, TX neighborhood this weekend, stop by the Palmer event center and do a bit of shopping! I'd love to see you.

Oh you are singing to the choir there my little sister!!! If glue wasn't drying and beads, fabric, wire aren't a flying as I walk out the door. It's not coming from my little art corner!!! You are doing just fine. Sending you good chi to sell all you take down and orders for more!!! Now I'm off to your shop I must see the new etchings you have done while my back was turned. I mean a sister can't even go on vacation without risk missing beautiful treasures!! :)

Have a good time, sell tons and stay safe!!

Love the bracelet! I did some etching today and have decided that the brass does a much better etch than the copper. I had much better luck with some thicker stamps too.
Have a great show! Wish I was going to Austin!
