TGIF! Whew! I thought this week was never going to end. It was the longest week ever and usually is the longest week right before a vacation. Yup that's right. I'm finally going on a little mini vacation. And the in-laws aren't coming. And I don't have to make coffee, or do laundry. But there also will be no jewelry created, and no blogging. (*but I will have my laptop to keep up on what's going on in internetland, cuz that's just how I roll) There will be hopefully, sleeping in, lots of good seafood, maybe a cupcake or two, sand on my toes, and wind in my hair, bead purchases (but only a few) and the meeting of a new friend!
Joe and I are headed to New Hampshire tomorrow morning. When we get there, we'll be stopping in to see Erin of Every Heart Crafts. Erin emailed me when she found out were going to be like 1/2 hour away from her and suggested we meet up for some chatting, and coffee and possibly beads. I am so excited to meet her in person and I think we'll have a great time. We'll be staying in Portsmouth the first night, and then Durham NH the second two nights. I am really looking forward to seeing a new place, and getting some new inspiration!
I'm keeping my shop open but won't be shipping purchases until the 15th. I'll have my laptop and will be keeping up with emails so feel free to contact me.
Here are a few pieces I created last night. I had that super awesome beading Mojo last night. Sometimes I have it and sometimes I don't but last night was one of those nights where I showed up and got "completely lost" in the beads and all of a sudden, I had 3 beautiful pieces of jewelry. I'm actually really excited to list these today! What a great way to end the week!
Another exciting happening from this week is I decided to go to the Philadephia Bead Fest! Heck why not!??! and I invited Kelley to come with me! I can't believe she agreed to fly up from Georgia for the weekend but you know, I'd do anything for beads too. It will be the first time meeting Kelley in person and it will be like we've always been friends. I've been chatting on a daily basis with Kelley for a few months now. I am so excited to meet her face to face and give her a big ol' lorelei bear hug.
So if you're headed to Bead Fest too and you want meet up, lemme know! We'll be there Friday thru Sunday!
