I went to the Tucson Bead Shows last week. I spent four days down in Tucson and had the most awesome time at the shows! I am very fortunate that I live only about an hour from Tucson and that I also have an Aunt who lives in Oro Valley. Oro Valley is just north of Tucson. So I not only had a wonderful visit with my Aunt, I got to see the beads shows too and get some lovely gemstones. I also was fortunate to meet with some online frineds while down there. I meet up with Susan of (cserpent) who is in TBO on ebay with me and EtsyBead on Etsy. She and her Mother and I had lunch together several days while down there. I was lucky to meet up with Vicki of (vickiorion) from EtsyBead. We had a wonderful visit too. I then found Sharon from (matursuksema) and had the most enjoyable talk with her and her daughter. Then I ran into Heather Davis of the famous Blissful Garden Beads. What a beautiful young lady. Very talented!
I wish everyone had the opportunity to go to Tucson some year when the shows are on. They are really awesome, something to see to believe. There are shows all over the city, the whole city turns into the big Bead Show! LOL! It's fantastic!
I better get busy beading with my new beads! :-) Happy Valentine's Day!
