I'm getting ready to do my first wholesale show on the 21 of this month. I'll be in Baltimore for the Rosen show. I am sharing a 10 by 15 foot booth with 2 other artists. We'll share the ride down and hotel fees. So it will not be a wildly expensive venture. Thank goodness.

I've been working hard. Doing a lot of overtime, trying to think about my product in a different way.

Today is Sunday morning. The boys are in Boulder with my Dad anad Step Mom. Alan is busy at home, fixing up his new music room (my old home based studio). I am in the studio and enjoying every minute of it.

I love being in the studio on Sundays, when only ghosts are in town. I feel like I have steeled away. I'm finishing up the last of the 50 beaded and gathered shawls I designed a few weeks ago. I am calling it the "Silk Embrace". Actually, all the beading will happen tomorrow and on Tuesday. Today, I will also start dying silk velvet and silk charmeuse for a new scarf I am calling the "Velvet Twist".

The studio is a disaster!! Clean up is scheduled for tomorrow morning! I have friends coming to help with the beading, so I had better get my act together.
