Weekend Wrap Up

What a busy weekend, whew!
Friday night I was invited up to my friend Theresa and Eric's camp for some relaxation (read:drinking games and good laughs) I spent the night and Saturday morning travelled back home, got ready and attended the wedding of my friend's Pete and Denise. Took a nap at home on the break between and then headed to the reception at 6. 
Sunday we attended a Baptism party for a friend's baby girl, enjoyed some good food and company with people that Joe works with.
Monday I spent most of the morning beading (8 new listings are in my etsy store!) and then Joe and I drove out to Cooperstown where we met up with Amy Freeland! You know Amy! It's CopperDiem!!
We had dinner with her and her lovely husband Chris. What a blast that was. I always really love getting together with blog friends as there is definitely no shortage of conversation when Beads are a common denominator!
I made Amy this pretty lampworked glass bracelet featuring a leaf connector from Gardanne Beads. The glass beads are from etsy shop: Howfunisthat! And Amy gifted me with some of her awesome Paint chip earrings, and a beautiful enameled pendant. Both of which I forgot to photograph this morning, sorry!




We had a great dinner at Alex and Ika's, one of my favorite restaurants in Cooperstown. I had such a good time. I hope that I get to travel some day out to California to visit Amy and our other west coast beading friends.

Today it's back to work. blech. I want to keep beading!
