American Craft Council Show yesterday
Yesterday I had the enormous pleasure of meeting up with fellow designers Ann, Sooz, and Lesley to go to the American Craft Council show in Baltimore. What an experience! My favorite artist by far was Josh Simpson and you MUST go see his site, www.joshsimpson.com . His glasswork is utterly amazing. I am going to have to put a planet on my wish list for Christmas! His web images are stunning, but to see them in person (particularly his $28,000 Planet) was phenomenal.
Been working, working, working on inventory! I just comitted to another show in November (three, possibly four in November, am I NUTS?) and I really need to get things done. That means smaller updates on the web, but probably more frequent. I finally finished getting taxes done and I was utterly amazed at the huge jump business did this year -- on the flip side, equally amazed that I spent so much on beads! But to keep things interesting, I'm constantly searching for new beads, trying out new techniques -- I truly love my job.
