I continue to experience the Tucson shows, yesterday at The Whole Bead Show at the Windmill where I visited with Gail Crosman Moore, and Karen Ovington, shopped for Fire Polish with Da Beads and had a generally good time. I met up with Cathi from Bead Creative in New Hampshire where I'll be teaching in March.
All followed by a party at Kate McKinnon's house which is wonderful and eclectic as you might expect. The Barbie coach/writers cottage/guest room was just as it should be, all cozy, tucked under the arbor. The walls of the house were brightly painted and the vintage decor perfect. Two large glass china cabinets stored colored glass of various shapes and sizes and as each guest was encouraged to select their favorite, it was easy to remember which was your wine glass.
Here's the cutest ever picture of Joyce Rooks, maker of beautiful beads!
And a find! For those of you who have asked, 'Where do I get the bead like you used in Shimmer Queen?' (Marcia DeCoster's Beaded Opulence) here is a source. My bead was done by John Curtis, however since his retirement they are being made by William Birth. They can be found at Alana's Unique Beads.
Today's adventures, the Holidome, dinner with the Wired Arts Girls and the Swarovski party!
