BEADFEST

I attended my first Beadfest this year and I have to say it was the Best EVER! A few things I learned, 

take more MONEY!

schedule more TIME!

and take a CAMERA, if you want to get some photos of the people you got to finally meet!

It was a great time, and wow what a wealth of beads and products, and wonderful people!

This is just a bit of the great loot I got, some of it is already in use and scattered all over!






I wanna go back right now!

Holy Cow woman!! What a great haul and I'm actually very jealous. I know you will make some amazing things with these wonderful beads.

Sharon I think this is the sort of event that comes to Santa Barbara, just a couple hours south of us. Once a year at a HUGE showground. I've always wanted to go. What you brought home is so earthy , beautiful. You are a serious customer!

Sometimes a good little shopping excursion is the bet inspiration of all ... Looks like you're set for a while :)

Caterina Giglio said...

Lenna Young Andrews said...

Sharon, that sounds so exciting and very invigorating for you, I'm so happy! Again, I must tell you I love the new "look" of your blog. It's fantastic! xo

Cindy said...

Sharon, your blog banner is beautiful! Oh you made it to Bead Fest! What a bummer I was not there as I would love to finally meet you after all these years. I never go to the summer show as the timing just doesn't work for me with our travels. I may go in the Spring....and I agree with the above comments, you have a gorgeous stash of new beads! I know you will make beautiful jewelry with your new treasures!

Terri said...

I don't blame you! lol! I would want to go back too! Everything you brought home really stirs the creative mind! I am so glad that you were able to go. I see Labradorite teardrops too! Yummy! And oh so many wonderful special pieces too! I am excited to see what you are going to do with all these beauties!
Have fun : )
Hugs,
Terri
