I am back from Bead Fest and finally feeling back in the groove. It usually takes me a couple of days to come back to earth. For those of you that did not go I brought back just a couple of photos of The Beaded Book winners, the Best of Show and my favorite Aladdin's Lamp. I had the pleasure of meeting the creator of Aladdin's Lamp, Sherri White. She creates using eggs, see her flowers here made out of eggs, I think she said Rhea eggs, this lamp is so whimsical.
Actually, Best of Show, characters from the book, A Journey of the Imagination (James Christensen artist) by Ellen Solomons was also very whimsical. Her award was well deserved, she even made the faces out of polymer clay. Absolutely Fabulous!
I made some new friends, bought some new beads, ate fantastic food. I can't wait to go back, nobody ever ask me here if I want red or green on my food!
While I was there I finished beading my January BJP page. Once I add the yarn around the outside edge I'll post a photo.
