Spring Break=BEAD BEAD BEAD!!!

Spring break from the job is in full force for the next 7 days.  This means that I have lots or Beading Work to get done.  Sounds like work for some, but I have actually been looking forward to the time.

First on the list is getting the instructions written and diagrams and photography completed for the projects that I am teaching at Bead Blast 2014-14th Annual Retail Bead Show in Overland Park, KS on May 3rd and 4th.  It is always such a great time to get to make new friendships and renew previous friendships in the fun filled weekend.  

I am teaching 2 classes:  Fancy Right Angle Weave bracelet and Chevron Shine Pendant which can also be made into a bracelet or hair bling.  Both classes are on Sunday so I get to spend the day working with the Bead Society of Greater Kansas City on Saturday.  If you are in the Kansas City area, come check us out and visit the website to see all the classes offered this year.

In the coming week, I also plan a trip to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, here in Kansas City.  I had not been there for several years until recently I went on a Field trip with 5th graders and was so inspired by some of the pieces that I had the opportunity to drool over... :)

I also plan to do some beading as I am excited to receive my bead soup for the 8th Bead Soup Blog Party.  I have been partnered up with Nancy Dale owner of NEDbeads.  This is my first Bead Soup Blog Party and as I said in a previous post, I am both excited and nervous.

For now, I think I will get started on the instruction writing.  After doing this the first time, I have a new appreciation for all the designers that do this for a living.  Much more work than I ever dreamed it would be, but also a welcomed challenge.

Until next time, HAPPY BEADING!!!
