Central California Bead Society Show 2010

As you can see Dennis is hard at work! Sandy came and helped me set up the booth and work all day with me, THANK YOU! This was a see if I like doing shows and how long it takes to set everything up show and then how long does it take to pack it all up! Answer a long time! I really did enjoy myself and it was fun to see old acquaintances and to make new ones. Lots of wonderful beads and the weather was not so hot, which is a good thing. It is so wonderful how the energy in a room full of people who love beads can be so electrifying. I love to just sit and watch people look at beads and see the looks on their faces when they spot the perfect bead or beads that is just right for them. I brought six racks of beads, crystal, findings, needles and threads. I went home with a lot less of everything. Thank you to all who bought beads from me. Now I have to think about if I want to do more shows, but I think the answer will be yes. It really was a lot of fun.

Time! Time! Time!

Time has really gotten away from me. It seems like all I do is work on this up coming bead show in Fresno, Sept 19. Trying to get the seed beads ready and the rivolis. The rivolis look really pretty hanging on the racks instead of in the cases. You can really see them now, what a beautiful sight! Love those crystals! Not much to report other than work and the weather is wonderful here, it's been in the high 60's sometimes sunny and sometimes foggy. I'm going to try and make myself swim in our pool at least 3 times a week, it's heated and wonderful but I just won't let myself take the time. I think I need to stop and smell the roses! Speaking of roses the @!!@!!@ gophers ate one of my rose bushes, the little butt heads! I won't put bait out because I have 2 dogs and the neighbors have cats that come in my yard and I don't want to hurt them I just want them to go into the big field by my house and stay out of my yard. For some reason they just won't listen to me! ha-ha Next year I'm planting very large sunflowers in my back yard, I just love the way they look! I also want to put in a lemon tree, I miss the one I had in Clovis. I use lemons a lot in my cooking so if anyone has any ideas on which kind of lemon tree I should get please send me an email. I didn't know there were so many different kinds! The fog has rolled back in I can't even see the ocean now, but it will go away by 11 am tomorrow and then I will be able to look out at my wonderful ocean! Enough of my going on about not much, hope everyone is doing great and I will see a lot of you in Fresno on the 19th of September for the big bead show at the Ramada Inn at Shaw and Freeway 41. Love, Kandra
