The Road to Tucson 2011

Every year's show season for me begins in early February when I trek to Tucson for a week of beads, beads, friends and beads.  

Before I tell you about exhibiting at the Best Bead show, I wanted to let everyone know that I have been extremely busy and thus the reason I've neglected this blog for so long. You've heard these comments before about "being extremely busy" but it's true. 

There are only so many hours in the day to be creative and I use every ounce of it between all the things I do.  The other fact is that I've been more active on Facebook.  Most of the information is duplicated between the blog and my Facebook updates, so here is where I invite you over there to join meI will be updating the blog sporadically when there is an upcoming show but for the most part will be devoting more time updating my Facebook page.

I took 2010 off from exhibiting in Tucson, more because my show was canceled and I decided it was time to be on the other side of the booth. So I went visiting friends and just had fun.  I missed exhibiting in Tucson but had a longer break without having to prep for the big show over the holidays.  So, when my friend Kim Fox (Handfast) asked me if I wanted to share her booth at Best Bead, who am I to say "no".  Actually I knew I wasn't going to be in Tucson and offered Kim my help for a few days.  This ended being a win-win for both of us.  Kim is going to be exhibiting at the AGTA show for the first time so I will be representing her work at Best Bead.  The Best Bead show is the show all glass artists want to exhibit in and so I feel fortunate for this opportunity.

I'm going to cut this entry short and get to the show details next since I still have to pack and load the car. It'll be a long but wonderful drive to Tucson and I'm looking forward to seeing all my friends there.
