Okay, I've been getting a lot of hits on the blog this morning, but there's no way I can post photos and put together a long post about the show and Bead Dreams while the Short One is awake. For those of you waiting for metal clay and/or seed beads Bead Dreams winners, they are as follows. Metal clay: 1st place - Christi Anderson, 2d place - Ruth Baillie, 3rd lace - Carol Babineau Seed beads: 1st place - Hatsumi Oshitani, 2nd place - Kathy King and 3rd place - Sherry Serafini. I will have photos up of the seed beads winners, metal clay winners (actually all metal clay entrants) and my personal favorites sometime later today. Sorry for the rushed post, but someone is tugging on my sleeve to play!! Be back later.
I am an intellectual property lawyer by training and have a background in English Renaissance literature. I love science fiction. I primarily watch Sesame Street these days and find myself humming "Pop Goes the Weasel" at odd moments (guess why). I can happily eat ice cream in the middle of winter when the wind chill is 20 below 0. I have been making beads and designing jewelry since 2007.
