Too busy to blog -- Gem Show, Day 4

I've got to be at work in half an hour, and I still need to do my hair, put on some jewelry, oh, and pack some lunch. As such, this is a really quick blog post.

Had a nice dessert with my friends last night. We talked about the shows, beads we'd bought, mutual friends, and computers. Deb brought a bunch of her beautiful wire work for show and tell, and I gave her a sneak peek of Peacock Feathers. We also swapped some beady gifts, and mine from Deb included some really cool pressed glass ivory skulls. YAY!

By the way, I made a Sock Dreams order for some things to wear to the shows... The Harajuku Steampunk arm warmers are just as awesome as they look on the page, although they're very prone to snagging on any rough edge. Today I'm wearing some purple over-the-knee tube socks. They're warm and comfy on my legs, but HUGE around the feet. I think the toes are going to bunch up and give me some serious blisters. Definitely not a good buy if you have size 7-8 or smaller feet.

Tonight I am going straight from work to gaming. If you're going to be at Best Bead, come into Beyond Beadery and say "Hi!" I'll be the 16 year old looking brunette in lots of purple.


  1. Oh, be careful of your feet! It's hard enough standing up for days, you don't want socks to make it worse.

  2. Luckily, the socks didn't end up rubbing my feet too badly, but they were annoying. I think from now on I'll only wear them around the house.

    Today I wore my thigh-high green stripes, which are the same style as my black and grey stripes, which are great. Everyone at work loved them!

  3. They want you to post outside the booth!

  4. Er... *pose* outside the booth!
