Hey - I kinda like it here! Santa Fe is just as beautiful and artistic and compelling as folks have told me over the years. I'm dying to get free to go visit some of the eleventy million galleries and shops around here, but honestly that won't happen until Monday, after this weekend's show.
I taught my Ring Around the Rosie class today and we had a really wonderful time in class. Afterward I had an hour to zip from the convention center back to the Hilton hotel before the Preview Night started and booth hours officially opened. We were open from 5pm to 9pm, and it was a really good opening night crowd.
One of the women who came by my booth a few times introduced herself as a correspondent for the Voice of America. She asked if I would be willing to be interviewed Friday for a piece she's going to be doing on Bead Fest. You betcha! So after the show closes down tomorrow, we're going to find a quiet spot for a quick little interview. My first! I hope I have something worth listening to. I'll let you know when it airs, and I'm sure I'll be able to link to it on the web.
So I'm now back in my little rented Casita, catching up on the news of the day and nibbling some food before I collapse in bed. I'm a happy camper, with my own place, a Whole Foods Market nearby, and beading to do...it's the little things that make me happy!
