So many beads and so little time!

I have been so busy I just can't keep up!!  What happened to the year.  Right now I am getting ready for Art in the Redwoods, which is a huge art happening in my area.  I have a booth there the weekend of August 20th.  Then 2 weeks after that is the 19th annual Studio Discovery Tour.  Wonderful event where hundreds of people come to your studio on Labor Day weekend and the weekend after.  Last year was my first time doing the show in my studio even though I had been the Director for 4 years starting in 2003. This year I am the Director and showing my work in my studio.  I have two other artists showing with me this year.  Walt Rush works in Silver, gold and gems and David Donaldson is a photographer.

I have been working on a new line in my fused glass. This is one of the pieces.  I recently sold one of the pieces to a woman in Wyoming who was visiting our town.  I am very excited with the new glass and the new 5 layer technique.  My website is not updated at all as I am totally out of inventory.  I did a rather large show last month that wiped me out.  Now trust me I am not complaining, its just that I feel like I am not keeping up.
I hope to start posting at least once a week so check back often.
