Back from BABE
We are back from BABE show in Oakland,had a great time! Beadmobile had a problem driving down but we got it fixed in Roseburg, Oregon. Very nice folks at Ford dealership. Enjoyed staying at Marriot, extremely convenient to get to show in Convention Center.
Met more bead folks. Lisa Kan, who I only knew through magazines articles and Karen Lewis (KLEW) who makes the most amazing polymer pieces. As always enjoyed seeing Guy and JMe from Wild Things and our lovely friend from Chicago, Ofilia Cinta. Kelly Russel was telling stories as usual and wowing folks with her wonderful PMC masterpieces.Lisa has a book coming out. Check it out. Also Carol Cypher has a new book. Also had a visit from old friend Judith from San Francisco, BART is a wondeful resource.Gail Splaver was across from us with her darling beads--very magical.
We hope to take a PMC class with Kelly in Tucson at Tanya's Whole Lot of Whimsy shop.
I am consumed with making small porcelain pieces for PMC artists to use in their creations.
We are planning for turkey day and then I am off to New York. I will see Ellen Mahnken and confer over new jewelry.
Happy Thanksgiving to all......
