I’m back from the ISGB 2010 Gathering…

my goodies from the bead swap and some Bead Bazaar purchases

…and trying to take it all in.  I had a FABULOUS time and have so much information now whirling around in my head i need a few more days to let it all settle in. The one thing i can say is i now completely understand why other beadmakers get so excited about going every year – it was 1001 times better than i expected – the demos, energy, eye candy, meeting beadmaking and glass legends, making new friends…  I can’t wait to go again!

I’ve slowly been loading the pics to my Facebook – so if you haven’t seen them yet, take a look there… I’ll try to load them to Flickr as well (for the non-FBers) by this weekend.

I’m off to the ISGB Gathering

Grace and I are heading off today to attend the Gathering – the annual convention of the International Society of Glassbeadmakers – in Rochester, New York.   This will be my first time attending and i’m beyond excited!  I’ve wanted to attend this conference since i first lit a torch four years ago…
