BeadFest Wire - Here I Come!

Oh yes, the time is upon us for...
Bead Fest Wire: April 9-11, 2010

How do I put into words how happy I am?  Ecstatic, joyful, stoked...  You can use whichever one you choose I suppose.  I'll be making my way over to King of Prussia, PA on Friday morning where I'll meet Shelby Foxwell from Sun Down Beads, Cindy Wimmer from Sweetbead Studios, Lori Anderson from Pretty Things, and Jeanette from Fundametals.  Have you seen these girls work?  Something they all have in common is amazing wire work, and I do mean A-MAZ-ING!!  Miss Shelby will be my roomie for the weekend.  Hope she can deal with my snoring :)  And I'm signed up for the Wild Woman Bangles class with Debra Mauser on Saturday.  Just look at what I'll be making.

So much twisted lovely wire.  I'm drooling just looking at it!  Did I mention how excited I am??  Ok, I need to control myself.  "Get a grip, Leslie!"  

And here's some newbies in the Bei Mondi shop!
