I went to the Madison Bead Show a few weeks ago with $30 in my purse. That seemed a like a reasonable, if tight, budget, but I’d forgotten that you pay $7 to get in! I prowled the market carefully, trying to figure out the best way to spend my remaining cash.
Mostly, I spent it on seed beads, but I had to have this pink flower bead, crafted by Tanya McGuire. Isn’t it awesome? I had to start making it into a bracelet the minute I got home. It was a very fun piece to work on.
I had to pass up a lot of lovely beads. But at least I rode my bike. Otherwise, I’d been out another $6!
