I forget from year to year how much of a whirlwind it is to be in Tucson. Morning until night is full of visiting,shopping and visual stimulation. I tend to miss out on real news as I navigate the days trying to fit in as much as possible.
Yesterday, our first and only non teaching day we managed a lunch visit with Janice and Tracy, shopping at the gem mall, followed by the Best Bead show, followed by To Bead True Blue, whew, all of that followed by a meeting I was unaware of and finally a late dinner.
Mostly I shopped for interesting bits to work into book projects and I did a good job.
Not too much in the way of photos but here are a couple....
Stephanie, the Dixon Chick, Toronto's Swarovski ambassador
a beautiful felted flower from Pat Reisenberger
Cosmic Quatrefoil bracelet by my BFF Susan Kazairian.
Classes were great, visiting was wonderful, shopping was productive and I look forward to today's travel home and a night with my honey. Susan looks forward to Mark's famous Belgium waffles for Sunday breakfast.
Miss Maya doesn't know it yet, but she is going to be the belle of the ball in her new collar!
