Back on April 9th, I took a trip out to PA for the final Bead Fest Spring (don’t worry, the August show isn’t going anywhere).
When we crossed the NJ border into PA, it started snowing. As we got closer and closer to the show the weather got worse. Mother Nature was not kind.

In my short 2.5 hours at the show, I was fortunate enough to see some friends including Jenny Davies-Reazor, Staci Louise Smith, Leslie Rogalski/Sleepless Beader, Greg Ogden/Green Girl Studios, Claudia Warszawski, Linda Escobar Panagopolus and many more!

As you can see, I wasn’t lying when I said I couldn’t resist them! I also came home with goodies from Jenny and some Green Girl pieces.

This was the big purchase though. I FINALLY got an Ezel Findings Beading Pal. My friend Meg at Bead My Love was at the show and she had a nice selection of them for sale. I decided to go with hot pink. I love this thing! It makes traveling with your bead project so easy and convenient! I’ll be taking this on the bead cruise for my bead embroidery/weaving class.
