Dreaming of Beads

Big news!  I have had two submissions accepted to "Bead Dreams 2013"  in the handmade bead and button category.  Beads will be on display during the Bead & Button show.  Winners will be announce during the show.  This is my third Bead Dreams.  My "Mermaids and Sea Creatures" beads took first place category in 2007 and my "Bountiful Harvest" buttons were second place category in 2010.  Winning ribbons is nice but the real honor is sharing those awesome glass cases with such inspirational bead artists.  I will be exhibiting at the Bead Marketplace at Bead and Button Show , June 6-9, 2013 booth#1017.  I will again be sharing with Patti Cahill  .  Hope to see you in Milwaukee!
