Let’s review, shall we?
Bead kits are going over so well at Fusion Beads that they have placed TWO reorders this week. Massive kit making production line around here the next couple of weeks.
Bead Fest Philadelphia has made their class selections, and I’ll be teaching three classes there next August. Hollywood Hula Hoop, Night at the Opera, and Quick & Easy Kumihimo.
I’m getting professional photos taken of many of my new and favorite pieces, and because printing deadlines for the classes are like NOW, I’m having to pay for expedited service. It will be worth it. I can’t wait to share them! I should have them within 2 weeks tops.
Despite the fact that I’m teaching a class in San Antonio tomorrow that I’m totally not prepared for yet, as well as two class here at the Studio on Tuesday that I haven’t written the instructions for yet, and having hundreds of kits to produce, I am determined to find time tonight for a couple of very important personal things.
First off, Alexis is going trick-or-treating for the first time this year, and I’m not missing it! She’s going to be Snow White. Now, you may have noticed that I said this was happening tonight and you’re thinking to yourself, “Does Jill know it’s Oct. 30 and not the 31st??” Why, yes! But this is the crazy kind of thing that happens when you have a firefighter in the family. My brother has to go in to work at noon tomorrow and won’t get off until noon on Sunday. So we get creative. He’s gone around to a few neighbor houses and told them to expect us tonight. We do the same thing at Christmas if he’s on duty. Either celebrate Christmas Eve, or wait until the day after Christmas. It works.
Secondly, I’m going to get to meet Indigo Cora McNulty Joseph tonight!
Isn’t she a cutie?? Her mom, Mick, is the manager of Nomadic Notions in Austin – the biggest and best bead store in Austin.
See why I have to make the time? This is the stuff of life. You can’t miss these moments without regret, so I’ll sleep a little less and work a little harder and be happy I did.
