OK. So you'll all just have to forgive me for not blogging in a while. First, there was preparing for Maggie Meister's classes. Then, there was recuperating from Maggie Meister's classes. From there, on to Tucson. Then, pricing the 150 plus pounds of beads that were shipped back to Chicago from Tucson. And now, City Beads will be the FIRST STORE IN THE COUNTRY to have a book signing for Beading Across America!!!
The folks at Kalmbach have been a big help, together with Paulette Baron and Amy Katz. Now, to get raffle tickets ready for the drawing for the Sherry Serafini Runway Earrings class, put out extra tables for the book signing, restock all the AIKO's, as 50 more colors plus the new permanent finish just came in, find a spot to put all of Paulette's kits for the trunk show, prepare refreshments . . .
If you're in the area, please stop by next Friday. And if not, find a way to get here. We're going to have a BLAST!
