And I'm teaching this!
This is the slightly under loved blue bronze which I happen to love.
But I can definitely see why the light colorado topaz and pacific opals won out as the favorite. It's such a soft, feminine pallette, and I love the length of it. It is one of my favorite pieces to wear.
It's all very exciting, 48 lively ladies, many many of whom I count as friends, a few new folks to meet, Sherry and Rachel and bff Susan, and Mark will join me and there will be a Malayna visit! And a visit with Santa Cruz friends Char and Rose who I've known for over 30 years, which is a long time to be friends.
If I appear excited it is because I have just put to bed almost every last detail that needs attending to, well if we don't count packing, and so now I have permission to be excited. We have some wonderful giveaways this year, which is going to make packing the car just a tad challenging.
Fortunately my San Diego family will house and dog sit, which gives us peace of mind when Maya can't come with.
And now I can return my energies to Beads in Motion which is currently experiencing a design phase. I decided to design eight pieces, and then write directions and illustrate before the next eight pieces. It breaks things up that way. I definitely like the design phase part, although it's all good.
