My Plate Is Full . . .

My cup runneth over! I've got quite a bit going on right now, the least of which is the fast approaching LAST DAY OF SCHOOL for a certain daughter. I realize that it's been a while since I've posted  :{ and I do apologize for that. I've finally got a handle on doing bead biz stuff and doing homework, but I'll discuss homework over at Nonnie Goes to School. So in trying to get back into the swing of normalcy, on Monday I will get back into finding you lovely beady giveaways from my cyber beading buddies, fashionista goodies, AND great recipe and cooking blogs. It's very exciting, at least for me. I'm hoping it will be for you, too. After all, these are the reasons I started blogging in the first place.

I have been flying, a lot if you count cancelled flights. I had an impromptu stay in Newark, New Jersey. I'd rather not fly through there again (no offense to any Newarkians) as it is a very confusing airport and homeless men offering to "get wit me" at 2:00 a.m. was just less than appealing. Maine was lovely and I have pictures to show you next week. I visited my grandsons for Easter and have more pictures of them. They have grown so much! And we have finally painted the walls of my studio/office! The floor gets painted next week and then I have the job of moving all the beads (and other artistic goodies) into that room. I'll just have to organize as I go!

In the meantime, if you are in Austin on June 15, I will be participating in "Merchandise Day" for the EGA's South Central Region seminar. You can find more information on the seminar website. Merchandise Day is usually open to the public and you'll find LOTS of great stitching supplies. I will have some new kits and new patterns available.

In October I'll be teaching and selling in Houston and will provide more details on that soon. And I'm going back to plenty of teaching proposals being sent out in hopes of traveling far and wide, even if I do hate flying.

So, plate and cup are very full but I think I can handle it all. Stay tuned!
