Phoenix Bead Expo!!

Next weekend is the Phoenix Bead Expo! Its being held at the Phoenix Convention Center. Friday hours are 11am-6pm; Saturday hours are 10am-6pm and Sunday hours are 11am-5pm.

So grab your checkbook and your credit cards, and go nuts!

I'll be taking two classes at the Expo on Saturday. Both are simple chain maille bracelets. Chain maille is one of those things I just can't seem to figure out. I think my main problem is that I don't have jump rings of the proper size and gauge (and I'm not even sure what the gauge is on most of the jump rings I have...). So I'm hoping that taking a class, and actually have someone show me and step me through it, then I'll know if I like it and if its something I want to do more of.

There are still openings in many of the classes and you can register on-site for the classes. So, if you're in the Phoenix area, you should check it out. Look for me in the Bead Bazaar. I'll be the lady with that crazed-for-beads look in her eyes and an empty wallet. Oh wait, that will be all of us at the expo.....

On a side note, I've been busy since January and have not had a chance to post over here. January was spent cleaning the house in my spare time in preparation for family coming in February. February brought company and horrible nasty cases of the flu (I'm sure you all experience the Plague that was going around earlier this year). In March, I actually was able to start making things again. I've been working on a few things and I plan to take some pictures this weekend. Hopefully I'll get to post them all soon.

Until then, thanks for reading and happy beading!
