The Bead Fairy

 Once upon a time there was a a crazy bead lady. That's like a crazy cat lady but without all the fur balls.   This bead Lady was very busy and had much work to do because she was going to a bead show in a far away sunny place called Tucson. 
One night after staying up very late and working very very hard, she heard a sort of sparklly jingle noise. It was the bead fairy come to do all her work during the night while she slept. The next day the crazy Bead Lady woke up to her amazement all of her beads were finished all of her things were packed up and there was a nice cup of  cinnamon latte waiting for her. The end.

This  really didn't happen, but a girl can dream. 

It's only a few days before I leave for Tucson. It's the point where I start to go on a little bit mad. There suddenly seems to be so much I have to get done and there's only so much time left. I keep waiting for the bead fairy to show up and help me finish something. Maybe tonight.

Happy 2015

This is the first post of the year for me.  Lots of things happening and the year ahead looks exciting. 
I'm getting ready for the To Bead True Blue Show in Tucson the first week of February. 
Then I am going to be doing a presentation/trunk show at the Great Lakes Beadworkers Guild in on the 17 of February to show off my Bead and Button Project. Oh yeah, did I mention I was teaching at Bead and Button this year
I am so excited. It is going to be a great class and I promise LOTS of fun. 
Then on Feb 28 I am going to be at the Art fair Garage Sale in Kalamazoo.  But first I am in the Mermaid show at the Allegory Gallery starting this week.
So I have quite a bit on my plate. 
And Just to make everyone feel better about themselves, because I am nothing if not kind and thoughtful like that, here is a picture of my desk.
You can either feel superior about your tidy  compartmentalized life  and  sense of  security it gives you, or you can rejoice and embrace  the chaos in front of you knowing you are not the only person whose work space qualifies for a FEMA grant. Either way  a picture off my desk shall brighten your day. Cheers!
