Beady Travel

Well this has been a very beady year in travel for me. It started with Hawaii and then Tucson and then to Lincoln to spend 2 beady weeks with a beady friend who has claimed me for her very own bead slave. The trip was delayed due to snow in Denver - 3 1/2 hours of waiting in line at LAX and I was re-scheduled through Chicago! I was not going through Denver again!!! She is a bead shop owner and I got to come home with tons of beady goodies. Worked a bead show with her in Omaha NE and that was a total blast too! Got to teach a class - my real love - two times while I was there. Once for students in her shop and the second time for the local bead society. I just love being around other beaders. They energize me. I got lots of great inspiration while I was there too. I came back to CA to work the bead show in Los Angeles and now I am about to spend a weekend in San Francisco with my sweetie. I am sure there will be beads somewhere along the way there. Beady Travel is the best!

Ugly Pouch

I have a wed nite bead group..... I brought out my 15's to pick colors for a green blended pouch....

and I made the one I wanted to make first

but they picked out the colors for this pouch

I am NOT a lime green kind of person.... so I refer to it as Ugly Pouch only to get scolded.... but I don't care for it - so I can call it whatever I want! lol

I leave in a week for points south then east and I can't wait!

Ugly Pouch has gone to a nice home. It sold a while I was in Nebraska.
