I went to Hilton Head Island for 10 days (as I usually do in the summer) and there's a bead shop there called High Tide Beads. It's a small store, but nice. They go to Tucson every year and stock up on on some cool beads, and show some nice lampwork beads from various artists - I hope to make it into their shop as well.
For the past three days I have been taken out by what can only be described as a monster, sickening migraine. I hope to get back to normal tomorrow, because I have to be a bead-making machine for the next month, for Bead Fest. I hope to get back to normal posting as well - for the past three months, my life has not been anywhere near normal, so I am hoping that changes a little bit!
