Making lots of....

 Earrings!  These have fun pieces in them that I brought back from Bead & Button :)

 Colorful, fun and flirty!
I have a shorter version in the works now.  These are about 2 inches long but very light to wear.

This afternoon, from 1-3 I will be at Michael's Arts and Crafts doing a demo!  I am pretty sure I will be doing the Knotty (Naughty) Necklace.  And....they have beads on sale!  30% off this week, but today from 3-7 you can get the coupon from the paper for an additional 15% off your entire purchase including sale items!  BONUS!!!  They have a new line called Art-i-cake that is really cute and also on sale :)  Hope to see some of you there!

And now....back to WORK!

 I've been making lots of earrings for my next 2 shows.  These are all brass, copper, pewter and sterling silver.  Kind of a "Mixed Metals" collection.  I'll be in Kearney, Nebraska in a couple of weeks,  then Spirit Lake, Iowa.

The highlight

of my trip was the 1 mile walk to Lake Michigan.  I had never seen it before and it is fantastic!   So here are
the pictures, in no particular order :)

 This is our hotel across the street from the convention center:

Back from Bead & Button!

The convention center was beautiful inside and out:

   Long lines to get into the show!  This one goes all the way to the far back windows!

Tanya parting with some money...we both did a lot of that :)

 Random booth pictures for ya:

Even the cars are blinged out!

This is Marty Hettsmansperger signing her new book for me:

Lorelei Eurto, Erin Siegel , right after they signed their new book for me:

And Cynthia Rutledge and her happy husband Mark in their booth.  The Nebraska Bead Society had Cynthia down to teach for us a couple of years ago.  So fun!  It was good to see her again.

That's it for the show pictures. I didn't get many as I was too busy buying beads!  But we are already planning on going again next year :)
