A Great Day

Just got home a little while ago from spending all day at the Toronto Bead Society spring bead fair. What a great day. I worked at the Dixon Chick booth and what a lot of fun it was. Stephanie (the Chick in Charge, of both her own booth and coordinating all the volunteers) and I (the assistant Chick) had so much fun chatting with all the lovely ladies who came by her booth to ask about wire crochet classes and techniques and buy wire.

I also did a little shopping, natch. I tried not to, but had to do a tour around and visit my favourite vendors, and a few things caught my eye as I did. But mostly I walked quickly past most places and managed to restrain myself. However, I did buy a few new treasures which I will share with you in blog postings to come. Luckily, Stephanie was kind enough to pay me for my day's labour and that went a long way to offsetting my bead purchases today, as otherwise, my new budget which went into effect only yesterday would be totally shot already! (oops)

Right now, I am weary in that way you get after a busy, fun day full of chit chat and activity. My brain is swirling around a bit with all the images of the day but my body is tired and ready for bed. Of course, it's too early for that and there are a few things I need to do to get ready for tomorrow's jewellery show at my cousin Catherine's. Plus my laundry is still in the dryer. As they say, no rest for the weary!
