One day more.....Come on down!Sugarloaf continues. I'm cleaned, dressed, pressed, bedecked and bejeweled and ready to grab a bit of breakfast before heading to the show....and ARGHHHHHHHH!!!! The clock radio in the hotel room is off by an hour. It SAYS it's 7:24, but, in reality, it is only 6:24! No wonder I'm still so very tired!
The solution? More beading time! I can finish up a necklace before I head off to the show....It has been busy, but nowhere close to the definition of busy during the fall holiday season. I've even got a "booth-and-a-half". While in the middle of a row, I've been able to configure the space to provide the illusion of a corner booth, allowing beaucoups of additional sunlight streaming in from the window nearby. Wonderful!!! AND I've got a bit of extra "leg room" behind to provide a nice little storage area! Wowzers!
The only thing that's missing is YOU! So come to visit!
Just a quick note to let everyone know that I'm going to be at the Sugarloaf Craft Show at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Gaithersburg Maryland this weekend. Friday through Sunday.
I'll be upstairs in building 6A, booth 107. Do come to visit! I'll be looking forward to seeing friends old and new, and making new acquaintances, too!
It's just the time to pick out things for Mother's Day and for graduates and brides. Stop by early for the best selection or to special order in time for the wedding or graduation!

And the weeks go around and around...It seems as if I just finished the ACC show, but, no, it's already been two weeks! The creative juices are flowing...at last! AND the desire to sit and bead coincides with the flowing of the creative sap in my veins....No pressure to create; just the free flow of ideas to try and test. No pressure to be done with something; just the relaxation of one bead following another in a new pattern or a new design or a new color combination.
The best part, the RELAXATION of beading is back. As a real type A personality, I've found beading to be my zen, my substitute for repeating a mantra over and over....but the pressure of the shows tends to change my outlook, making beading as much a chore as a joy....How wonderful to be back in the realm of the joy of beading. The next show is local--Sugarloaf in April--so far less pressure than occurs when doing a NEW show in a NEW location.
BY THE WAY, I'm in booth 107 (upstairs in the first building!) So come visit the booth.
Other than the wrinkled purple drapery on the left (which I cropped out for this picture and will NOT do again), whaddya think of the booth? Yes, my name is missing on the banner -- needed to do that for future show applications to keep the slide truly "blind"....
I'm absolutely thrilled by my new jewelry pix....Think they're large enough? LOL
This blog is where Thea Fine, Beading Design meets Fine WordCrafters (my writing/editing activities). I hope you find it a happy collision of my two artful worlds.
