It certainly doesn't look like spring in Santa Fe. We woke up to find about 6 or 7" of snow on the ground and more is predicted. I thought I was in some sort of time warp! I took this photo with my cell phone so it's not the best photo. It's probably on the list of the Top 10 Bad Photos for 2009!
This is my studio - Coop's office - my office - guest house - bead storage facility. It's a little house we rent. The best thing about the house is it's located about 20 feet from my back door!

Some highlights of the show for me: * I peeked in on Susan Lenart Kazmer's Rings Relics and Prong Settings class. Mary was there pounding metal into fabulously funky rings. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. I wish I had signed up for this class! * Lisa Kan Designs had a set of wonderful precision tools.* Wild Things Beads had fabulous black spinel bicone beads. And yes, I bought a strand. OK, so I bought TWO strands.* Softflex had beautiful CZ rondells. I wish I could have bought all of them. One of the prettiest things at the show was their packges of three colors of a new wire. The colors were delicious. * Old friends and beads, beads everywhere! What more could a person want?
May the light always find you on a dreary day;
When you need to be home, may you find your way;
May you always have the courage to take a chance
And never find frogs in your underpants.
