More Bead Fest!

Better late than never! Two weeks after Bead Fest was over, I'm just posting some photos for your enjoyment!  This sign was what greeted all the Bead Festers when we got off at the Expo exit!  I had to take a photo of it!
This is the me, the first morning.  We set up on Thursday, and went to have an AMAZING dinner at Creed's Restaurant!  It was great - I highly recommend it if you are travelling to Oaks PA for any reason!


The lovely Stacy Louise came and visited my booth on Friday - she brought us all little gifties!  I picked this!

 
 While at Bead Fest, on Saturday, Diana hosted a Bead Swap (see my earlier post) and a giveaway!  I actually won the very last prize - lucky me! - and THIS is what I won!  I was quite excited!  I have purchased several of Lisa's colored metal sheets and now I get to color metal sheet all by myself!  


So when I visited her at her booth, I had to purchase a little something to color - this is what I got!






My booth buddy to my left was the amazing, super-talented, artistic, amazing (did I say that?) Jenny Davies-Reazor.  The first time I met her was at ArtBLISS and I really didn't get to spend much time with her, as she's a Sally-ite and I didn't take any of his classes.  We did have a trunk show and I purchased a few of her pieces.  I've known her on blogland, but this was the first time I got to spend some real quality time with her and let me tell you, she is SUPER!  Super-generous, super-nice, super-talented.  Don't think I can say enough about her.  Here's what I got in a trade with Jenny!

Don't you just love that man?  Jenny and I traded beads, because some of our beads were just meant to be together, and at a later date we're going to do a little collaboration with our pieces - I'll be sure to let you know!

Well, this post was long enough for today!  I give you the scoop on the rest of my loot tomorrow.  In the meantime, you can visit all these places by clicking on my links!  Give the girls some love!
