It's Over.




Here are some final parting shots of the Show. I'm done. Crispy critter. Overspent.

It was so worth it. I'll do it again next year!

What creativity and craftsmanship! Congratulations to all! Your efforts inspire others.

Your work deserves mentioning! It was wonderful to see it in person.

I used the "Mame" method of buying beads - I spread my money around like it's manure, encouraging things (beads) to grow...

So many booths got some money - some more than others...
