I've been home from my annual Bead & Button trip for over two weeks now, and I'm just finally catching up. Google Reader had compiled nearly 2500 entries for me, and I'm down to the last 350 or so.
I'm looking at all of the lovely entries from friends who went to the show, and the beads they bought. It's making me a little sad this time. I had planned to buy a little this year, but was so busy that I barely left the booth. I think I saw the least I have ever seen of a Bead & Button show. And I didn't really have time to talk to any of my favorite people, sadly.
Now that I'm home, I'm frantically putting together new listings and trying to restock my store and my Etsy shop, and it's just been a bit of a crazy time for me. I wish I could add more hours to the day. I haven't even been able to get back to my copper pendant experimentation.
I'm already looking at my schedule for the rest of the year and wincing. I have so many trips planned and so much going on. I hope I can get through it all without going crazy.
