Every single time I'm going somewhere and bring my camera.. it stays in my bag the whole time. It's some kind of flaw in my character. If I had forgotten my camera, I guarantee you that I would have reached into my bag for it at some point yesterday. Ah well! Yesterday Steve drove Naomi and me up to Stourbridge for a bead fair! It was a looooooong drive but we had lots of fun chatting to other glass artists and buying lots of pretty beads too! I remembered the camera on the way home (actually Steve said I should take some pics of the pretty scenery.. which promptly disappeared behind some trees as soon as I retrieved the camera.. so you get car pics instead!) I wore my bunny necklace from Easter and received many compliments :) I handed out a few business cards too. And did I mention I had new dreads installed last week?! New colour: Fruit Coulis. Ooooh!
Steve drove for SEVEN hours yesterday to take us to and from the fair. He might have chugged several Red Bulls (Blue Bolts actually!) along the way. Poor man! He didn't complain one bit though. Isn't he sweet?
After going to the fair I'm feeling really excited about The Big Bead Show coming up in October. I'm going to be selling and I've been quite nervous about it as I haven't done any shows previously. After going to Stourbridge yesterday I feel much more relaxed and optimistic about the show :) Any of you planning on going to the show? You'll have to come and see me there!
What did you guys get up to this weekend? Anything interesting?
Off to make more beads for the show ;) Have a great week!
