I got the post office yesterday with five minutes to spare. Okay, maybe three. But I made it! (And I had a back up plan involving UPS in case I missed the PO.) So the samples and instructions and the last few weeks of my life are now off to the Bead & Button staff and I can put it out of my mind for a little while. They make their class choices over the next few months - it takes that long to sort through the thousands of applications they get!!
I let myself sleep in late this morning to recover from the last few sleepless nights and now it's time for me to finish up details of a few kits for the Shreveport retreat. Then I pack the car. Pack me. Have to stop by the bank to get change for the cash register. And then I'm off to Shreveport! 5.5 hours in the car and I'm looking forward to doing nothing but driving and listening to my music.
I'll update from Louisiana over the weekend!
