showing off my rack..

My bead rack, that is! What did you think I meant?! My wonderful hubby, Steve, made me some GORRRRRRGEOUS mahogany bead display racks. I have four of the tall, upright displays, two spinning displays and two focal displays. You can see one of each in this photo plus all the bazillions of beads I had for sale at The Big Bead Show! I had a GREAT time! I met up with old friends, made new friends and have so many new, wonderful customers. My beads seemed to be quite a hit and I was ecstatically happy! It was also fantastic to admire other people's work from seed bead jewellery and ornaments to ceramic bangles (SO awesome!), fabulous jewellery and interesting hairstyles, tattoos and piercings. What a day! I'm so glad that Sam asked me to share a table with her and gave me the courage to do this show. Thank you, Sam! I will definitely be doing more shows in the future :)

Here's a pic of us behind our table. Doesn't it look great? Between Steve's stands, our beads and the signs, I think it looked amazing! I had a smile on my face all day long.. so much so that my cheeks were really aching by the end of the day! I wouldn't change it for anything though. A HUGE thank you to everyone for all of your amazing support, compliments and purchases. You've all made me a very happy girl!

I came home to custom orders in my inbox already and tons of new mailing list subscribers. You guys rock so much :) I am so blessed!

Keep an eye on my website this week. I'll be listing TONS of new beads including pairs & trios, cupcakes, kitties, lentils and even some jewellery. Hope you like it :)

Also, now that the show is over I've reopened my Etsy shop. I'll be adding some new items to that shop too, so keep an eye on it :)

Thanks again, everyone, for all of your support. I love you guys!

So pleased you did so well. Knew you would!
