what a weekend!

Hi everyone! I had a super busy (and fun) weekend.. I'm still recovering ;) On Saturday, Steve, Naomi and I all drove over to Glastonbury for the Avalon Faery Ball. As we were driving along what should we happen to spy on the side of the road.. STONEHENGE! I had never seen Stonehenge so we quickly pulled over and went over to see it. It is amazing! It was also quite chilly and VERY windy.. my dreads were whipping me in the face :( It felt so good to be standing so close to this incredible bit of history. I was surprised at the surroundings though. It really is standing in a field.. with nothing else around! You can no longer walk amongst the stones but it was an incredible experience. I got all teary-eyed! Then on Sunday, Steve and I went to a friend's house for a get together. I enjoyed myself and there was tons of wonderful food :) We had a great time but by Sunday night we were both soooo utterly exhausted. I could've slept all day yesterday.. if I didn't have beads on the brain! ;)

Speaking of bead-brained, I'm still working hard to get ready for The Big Bead Show on Saturday, October 17. I've made TONS of cupcake sets, Christmas sets and plenty of kitty, tree and cupcake focals too :) I still think I should make more though.. so more are coming up!

Here is a group shot of a day's work last week. This shot makes me giggle a bit as I have everything from an elegant tree focal to spooky kitties topped off with whimsical cupcakes and sophisticated lentils. It goes to show you how hard I find it to stick to a certain theme for too long! :D

I'm off to make more beads. I have a few orders to sort out and then it's back to creating for the show. Oh and did I mention I made FIVE more cupcake sets yesterday? Yeah, I totally did. Cupcake craziness :D

Have a great day!
