Up and Running

The Omaha Bead Bazaar is completed for another year. It was very enjoyable to see many of my Omaha Beading Friends. But now it's back to the little sweet shop here in Lincoln. There are a few more "things" I need to put away; but other then that, the shop is up and running!

This coming Saturday, April 17, 2010, there is to be the Spring Husker Football game at 1:00 pm. This means there is a big possibility that the shop will be closed that day, if I don't find a parking place.

Hopefully, in the next week I'll figure out how to set up a second page on this blog so I can display pictures of classes that I offer.

As some of you know I'm a big fan of the YouTube - Kia's 2010 big game commercial that has the Sock Monkey in it. So, I purchased a sock monkey pattern from bead-patterns.com and then Shala of "Don't Eat the Paste" made up a peyote stitched "Mom Tattoo" for me that I beaded up. These two make me laugh so much!
