All last week I’ve been jumpy with excitement: like a kid waiting for Santa Claus. I had butterflies in residence in my tummy. All I could think about was the wirework class, an all-day one, on Thursday next.
I got to bed late – well, early this morning really. And I slept for almost 10 hours. I awoke feeling refreshed, noteworthy in itself, entered the PigPen ready for work. Made a new necklace and earrings, cleared out a lot of emails. worked on my financials (I hate them so again it is worthy of note).
Then it happened.
My sister sent me an email from work and she reminded me of the wireworking class.
I had actually forgotten all about that class!! Imagine my surprise! But now the butterflies are back and I am getting tools I’ll need together. I keep reminding myself that I need to take a hair blower. Do you still use those. These days our hair is kept pretty short so we don’t really use one any more but for some reason, maybe the packrat part of me, we held onto one.
Oh, and then I had to make some business cards. I want to be remembered when you meet me. On paper I’m fairly calm. But meeting face to face is different. I can turn on the charm and the wit but sometimes the skill deserts me. So – I wire on a small glass bead to each card. It’s time consuming but I get remembered. You see? I need to get busy with the business cards.
And I still have to get the usual work done, too. I’m just flitting from one thing to the next and nothing is being finished. Not too good, I guess.
But the Canadian Bead Oasis Show sets up on Thursday and is open to the public on Friday to Sunday at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre on Front Street – right across the street from the CBC building. Entrance fee is a reasonable $8.00 CAD and $12.00 CAD for the whole weekend. There are over 50 exhibitors in the merchant mall and the stuff they have is marvellous to a beader. Such pretty colours and textures. The ‘undergarments’ or findings are well represented, too. The new ‘thingy’s’ can be found and the latest books and magazines.
Check out their website.
And I’m going to a class!!
