Best weekend ever!

I spent the weekend down in Philadelphia at Bead Fest with this crazy group of wacky bead/jewelry makers.
Lorelei, Me, Kerry
Cass & Kelley

Kelley and Cass flew up from Georgia and bunked with me and Lori for several days. It really sucked having to bring them back to the airport - we had such a good time with them. Lori and I discussed kidnapping them but we couldn't figure out how to get away with it.

Here is Diane Hawkey and Melanie Brooks, two ladies of the clay. We had the pleasure of having dinner with them two nights in a row. What a blast! We laughed, we drank, we ate, we told ghost stories...

On the last day we were lucky enough to spend about five minutes with Mary Jane. She was about to start a class with Susan Lenart Kazmer so we didn't have much time, but I am so glad we had even just those few moments.

It was wonderful to spend some time with all of these wonderful, inspiring women. I wish I could capture them all and hide them away in my attic so that we could play all the time.

Tomorrow I will show you some of the goodies I found at the show. :)

You said hide us away in the attic and now I'm flashing back to Flowers in the Attic. I'd rather just live within driving distance and be able to invite you over for deener, sangrias and beads. And you're right...it was the bestest weekend!
