    Road trip!!!

    I've been pretty quiet for awhile, trying to get my bearings and wits about me, but now it's time to shout from the rooftops: I'm going on a road trip!!

    I'll be attending the Fall Foliage Bead Retreat in Avon, Connecticut October 20-23. My beautiful, talented friend, Amy Blevins, is the coordinator of this event, and I'm so very proud of her for all the hard work and exciting things she's doing.  

    I cannot begin to tell you just how excited I am to attend this event, but of course, I'm going to try!  The instructors this year are Marcia Decoster, Kimberly Stathis, Shelley Nybakke, and Amy Blevins.  In other words, I'll be personally talking with and learning from an all-star lineup!  The projects are out of this world, dripping with crystals and pearls and all things sparkly.  


    My travel buddies and I have been conspiring for weeks, discussing supply lists, beading challenge updates, and snacks.  It's certainly going to be a beautiful ride, as the leaves are at peak between here and there.  Oh, and the hotel...my heavens, the hotel...

      Needless to say, I'm looking forward to this event, as I'm sure to learn some new techniques, different ways to construct pieces, and work with beadweaving more extensively than I ever have.  It's going to be a learning experience and a chance to meet new friends and rekindle old friendships. 

    I have to thank the  say a HUGE thank you to some folks who have helped me with this endeavor:  This activity is made possible in part by the Artist Development grant program administered by The Arts Council Of The Southern Finger Lakes and funded by the Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes, Inc.  I'm most appreciative of their support!
