Back to normal.

Well I'm back from my shows and I'm ready to head back into the studio full-force this weekend, getting busy creating some new beads and working on some new designs and a little something else that's new for me as well! I'm still in the experimenting mode, so it'll be a little while before I can debut this new upcoming line of work. The Ottawa show was fantastic and a huge success! Congrats to Grace for organizing such a great show! I am positive that it will be expanding for next year, so look forward to that!

I hope to list some new things in my Etsy shop in the next little while as well. As for site maintenance, I'll be adding new eye-candy to my gallery! Now that things are getting back to normal, I'll be able to start taking custom orders again after this weekend as well. Those of you that are thinking of Christmas presents, you may want to get your orders in soon to ensure delivery before the holiday mayhem begins!

Nothing much else to share tonight. I'll be back again soon, hopefully with those gallery additions as promised! :)

Needless to say, my weekend was absolutely amazing!!! Sunday was indeed a dream come true. In fact, I'm going through post-concert depression right now! hahaha It will be a day that I will never forget!

Thanks to my mom and Jay for working my booth for me on the Sunday at the TBS. The show was great. Thanks to all those that came out to visit! The winner of the $25.00 gift certificate is Carol W. of Toronto. Congrats Carol, I'll be emailing you. I'll be pretty busy this week, preparing for my Ottawa show this weekend! If you're in the area, you should check it out!

Gotta cut this short tonight ... lots to do! I'll be back after the Ottawa show. After this weekend, I'm not scheduled for another show until March, so hopefully I'll be able to be present a little more often on here, adding to the gallery and adding more beads on Etsy and whatnot.

Take care.

Slipped Away

Oh my, how the month of October slipped away from me! I apologize for the long silence on here ... I have been really busy! I'm sure those of you who read my blog on a fairly regular basis are anxiously awaiting the ridiculously amazing news that I was hoping I'd be able to share! Well.... I am ecstatic to announce that on November 9th (ok people, don't think I'm silly here...) my dream of meeting my most favourite band of all time is finally after nearly fifteen years, coming true! I will be meeting The Backstreet Boys in Hamilton a week today! As a matter of fact, at this time exactly one week from now, I will be enjoying my second row centre stage concert tickets (still goo-gaa over meeting them backstage at the soundcheck a mere four hours prior I'm sure!) My sister and I have been waiting for this day for a long time and it's finally coming true! The Backstreet Boys are the type of band that people either love or hate, so think of me what you will, but just know that I am sooooo happy!

I will be leaving the Toronto Bead Society show early on Sunday, so if you need to speak with me regarding any custom orders or special requests, the best day to do it is Saturday (I'll be there all day Saturday). I'll be there for a couple of hours Sunday morning but then I'm off to Hamilton! My fiancé Jay and my mom will be holdin' down the fort for me (love you guys! hee hee).

So, wow, the October winner already? Congratulations to Brianne G. of North York, ON! (see the home page for a photo of what you've won!) Thanks again to all those that vote every day all month long! Good luck for the November draw! Well, I better get down to the studio before the night fades away on me (apparently as the entire month of October did). I'll be pretty busy over the next few weeks with preparation for my shows and custom orders that I need to finish. I'll be back to being able to take new custom orders beginning November 24th. Thanks everyone!

Take care, thanks for stopping by.
