let the frenzy begin!

That is what my sister and I always say as the week before a jewelry show draws near. No matter how much we plan ahead, produce and prepare,
that last week is always a flurry of activity.

This is especially true for the first show of the year, there are
so many little things we seem to forget about. Things that by November,
at our last show, will be second nature.

So I am off to do a little frenzying, today and tomorrow we have predictions of thunder showers, perfect weather for me as I sit inside with
my beads and baubles, shiny bits of silver and sparkling crystals.

These tulips grow just outside my studio window,
a different sort of jewel, don’t you think?

Wishing you a Saturday filled with fun and sunshine.



p.s. check back on Monday for the giveaway announcement!
