Wonder where I've been? Well, last week I was talking to my baby brother & he told me the family is on Facebook & if I want to know what they've all been doing, go there. I was reluctant, but he talked me into it. I can't believe how many people are there that I haven't "seen" in years! There are people from my old days when I owned Scottie Obsession & then people from Retreats I've been too, classes, and yes! all the new friends I've met here in the beading blog world. I've been intrigued with it all trying to keep up & making comments to my coworkers to make them laugh at me when I walk in the door at work. So, it is like a new toy. Bright, shiny, and occupying my time. Find me there as Dot Lewallen, if you want.
I have ONE MORE WEEK until I am in Reno & met up with my bestest buddy, Cynthia. I can't wait! We are also meeting up with Kate & Colleen from New Jersey who we met a couple years ago in Las Vegas at the WhimBead Retreat. I'm finishing up some earrings & brooches for the swap & this morning I found THE UGLY OF ALL UGLIES for the Ugly contest. It is AWFUL! It is a locket that I made in a class with Jean Bernard & it is terrible. I think all I need is a horribly monsterious picture for the inside and it is perfectly atrocious. I was going to take my Troll doll Beatrice with her son for the ugly, but they are just too darn ugly cute. There is a big difference there.
So in 8 more days I'll met up with all the gals from All About Beads & have fun, fun, fun.
