Let's have a party!

And a giveaway!  The beader readers and commenters have spoken - bead mix it is!  All you have to do is reply with a comment to ANY BLOG POST between now and Wednesday, November 21st.   Not sure how many that will be yet - but I'll try to remember to prompt you with each one.  Getting busy and down to the wire for the Holt Holiday Sampler show.  I'm kind of glad I'm having this little Grandma/granddaughter beading party here tomorrow - because it's giving me a chance to experiment with how and where to set up my things in a small amount of space.  I have opened my home to 3 other vendors besides myself - each with a full inventory of fun things of their own to offer.  I hope to remember to take photos during set up, and during the actual event - but since this is a HUGE DEAL in our area, with literally 100's, even 1,000's expected depending on the weather - I may not even get a chance.   
But I DID take photos of my set up today - before and after.  The grandmas that are coming tomorrow were part of a class that I taught a few weeks ago at Coyote, and they were also excited to have finished items to shop for as well.  I'm HOPING they'll be just as excited about my little 'mini show' tomorrow - I'm giving them first peek and pick of some new holiday items - and I'll be giving them a discount for bringing the party to me, as well.  So much easier when I don't have to pack it and haul it somewhere else - and saves on gas, too!  I hope they are excited about the selection I've provided for them...
Here's a peek at what I got accomplished today:

10 earrings kits, and 10 purse charm kits.

Table prep inspired by Biggby Hazelnut Mocha!

Kinda pretty....

Ready for the girls

Taking the opportunity to show off my BSBC pieces.  They're so glad to be out of their box!
Wish me luck tomorrow, peeps.  I hope to get a few more parties and shows out of these girls, so I'll have something to sustain me from January to June - when show season starts.  Don't forget to comment for your chance in the Mix It Up drawing on Thanksgiving Day!
Peaceful beading,
TTFN
