Happy Birthday to ???????

Guess who's birthday it is today????

So much smoke from 31 candles!!!!  
A little bit about my weekend.  Had a nice drive to Wisconsin to shop at the Bead & Button show.  The time I had to shop, which was about 5 hours, went way too fast.  I did get some great goodies though.  I picked up some glass, beading wire, a couple kits using wirelace, czech beads, stones, brass chain, seed beads and some silver.



As for the Iowa City Arts Festival, well the weather just didn't cooperate.  Saturday went fine, although very hot and muggy, up in the 9o's.  It started to get windy, which is the worst because things started blowing over, crashing to the cement floor and breaking.  The guy in charge of the festival told us to start shutting down about 4:30 because of the wind (was suppose to be over at 6:00)  We packed up most of our stuff and closed up the tent.  Sunday morning it was really windy again and raining.  Justin drove up to Iowa City and everyone was tearing down their tents, so we did as well.  Very disappointing to do all this work, then just have the show for a few hours.  I felt even more bad for the folks who drove from Nebraska and Missouri.  

Hope to get in the bead making groove again soon and post some new beads.
