On the heels of the show I planned a vacation with my Mom, two sisters and my niece. In retrospect I wish I had given myself more time between the show and the vacation. Nonetheless, it was a fantastic time spent with family.
Because I was preparing for another really big event.
THE BIG NEWS:
A couple of months ago I applied for a wonderful opportunity and was thrilled to be chosen as one of a five artists to have my work represented at a HUGE bead show. Chris Thommen from The Art of the Bead offers this opportunity every year. She and her associates set up a booth and promote the work of new and emerging artisans at the Bead & Button in Milwaukee, WI. Yup, you heard right ... My work is going to be for sale at Bead & Button!!!
Now I need to settle back in and create new pieces to restock my Etsy shop. I'll begin working on those pieces this week. I'm aiming to get them listed by the first of next week.
Thanks for visiting with me today. Stay tuned because in a couple of days I'll be sharing another new bit of news and giving something away! Talk to you soon.
