Taking a Break till after the Gathering

I feel so bad not updating my blog, so I am going to take a couple of weeks off until I get back from the International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB) conference. 
See you when I get back!

New Work and Busy!

Whew it was a great weekend with lots of time on the torch and spending time with family. Gearing up for the Gathering which is like going to the holy land for a beadmaker. Lots of lectures, friends, glass, and just plain fun. 
So I am hard at work making things to sell at the Bead Bazaar on Sat. So if you are near Louisville KY, stop by and see work from the best beadmakers in the county!

Childhood Memories.

When I was going up I lived in a sweet town called Webster Groves. Beautiful old homes with large oak trees and shady yards. It was hide and go seek, kick the can, and hordes of kids roaming the streets. Summer showers we would run out in the rain and jump in puddles.
On July 4th we had the best hometown parade. The local mounted girl scouts would ride by on their horses Miss Webster contestants rode by on convertibles. When I was in high school I rode on a car waving to the crowd cause I was on the synchronize swimming team. 
Then we had a 4 day carnival with rides, booths, and food. Everyone from the surrounding area would come to our town to celebrate the 4th. Our fireworks were the best. July 4th was really a favorite time growing up.
How are you spending your July 4th?
