Home from The RMBS Bazaar

I love having a booth at the Rocky Mountain Bead Society Bazaar. The volunteers are so wonderful and work so hard to keep all of us happy. Thank you for all your work! My booth and room mate, Hannah Rosner was so great to work and room with. We will be back next year sharing the booth and the hotel room. 
This is Hannah's side of the booth. We compliment each other so well with my "dark side" and her "light side". She and I will team up again at the 2011 Bead&Button Show this June. Come see us at booth #410.

I stayed in Denver a couple of extra days visiting my friend Nancy. She is a wonderful multi media artist. We had originally planned to work in her studio on a small book project. I was pretty tired after the show, so just wanted to sit and bead. Nancy had a new kit from the show, so was happy to work on her new project. Her Italian Greyhound, Penny is always tucked in beside her on the big blue chair. We always laugh a lot together, but are also comfortable with long silences. So relaxing.

 Below are some of Nancy's art dolls and two little ceramic bowels. I adore the blue one and expect to own one someday...

Here are Nancy and Penny on our walk around the little lake near her house.

 We did take a trip to Ornamental Beads, and go out to a nice lunch in her very cool neighborhood.
Monday we had dinner with Bernadette Fuentes at Nancy's. Tuesday we met up with  Nancy Zellers for dinner. Both delightful bead friends! Bernadette is a fabulous glass bead maker and Nancy has several beading books out. I love the railing at the Parisi Restaurant where we ate. The Oriental Theatre across the street is so beautiful. Too bad I will be back home when "Wayne the Train Hancock" plays there. Sounds intriguing and I love his Honky Tonk, Cajun flavored style bluesy country vibe! Check out this YouTube video.

It is both wonderful and a bit overwhelming to be home. I am the sole proprietor of Beady Eyed Women® and the only person who does upkeep on the house and yard. The Yard is blooming like crazy!

Then there are kits to make, emails to answer and my dog staring at me trying to get me to throw her fetch toy.

 Whew! Back to work!


  1. I hear that One Woman Band Thing. It can feel a little overwhelming at times! I can only imagine your passionflowers with all of the rain!

  2. HI! I just found your blog... and what a post. You look like you had so much fun... the blue bowl was so beautiful as well as her art-work behind! Love your flowers... and bless you sounds like you stay so busy! Have a wonderful day!
