I'm Back!!! Oh and Frustrated as heck

I took some much needed time off to spend time with family and get ready for Bead and Button. I leave this Mon. and my class is Tues. and then Meet the Teachers on Wed. Please stop by my table and say Hi if you are attending. I will not have a booth at the show, just my table at Meet the Teachers.

I am super frustrated. I am not one to promote myself too much, and find it hard to contact studio's to have me come and teach my class, but it looks like I may need too. I have students contact me though e-mails, phone calls, etsy, in person asking where I teach so they can take my class. You have no idea how many times I have contacted studios to teach and they say "we will keep you in mind". I guess I am not high enough on the totem pole. It is so hard to tell students sorry. What's a girl to do. Any suggestions would be welcomed! ARRGGGG.

A little time out.

I have neglected the blog for a while. My father has been in and out of the hospital for several weeks. He seems fine now, but at age 85 his heart is just not as strong as it used to be.
I think it's so hard to see your strong father, who took care of you when you were a child, grow older. 
Hopefully I will be back to post more in a couple of days.

A club I don't want to be a member of.

Mothers Day is a hard day for many of us who have lost their Moms. I was lucky. My Mom was one of my best friends. We would talk at least once a day, and see each other once or twice a week. We both woke up early in the morning so I knew I could call at 7 am and not wake her up. We would have our coffee and talk about the day. We shared our dreams and pains.

My heart aches when I see women with their Mom on their arms. Heads almost touching and a whispered conversation shared. I see them in the mall, at the garden, in a restaurant, along a street. 

If you have your Mom with you give her a kiss from me.

Time to put my head down and get ready for Bead and Button. I have 7 lovely students signed up for my glass beadmaking class on Implosions. I am super excited and can't wait to meet up with a bunch of blog friends and all my bead buddies. 
Are you going? If you are taking classes please stop by my table at Meet the Teachers night on Wednesday and say Hi. 
I teach on Tues. and will stick around to shop until Sat or Sun. morning. Yumm shopping for a couple of days, can't get better than that!
