|Mamma, are you done yet?|
Then J has a huge interview on Wed with the University. He's so nervous (he has to take a test) and has been preparing for this interview since he got home from class last week. I hope him the best and I'm sure he'll do great.
I also have my second show this Saturday. We have to be set up by 8:00am. That's after a 30 min drive to get there and 1-1.5 hours to set up. I am just dreading Saturday morning. But it should be fun. It's in Sun Prairie (the same town as last weeks) at Strawberry Fest. They have a whole bunch of things going on, so I'm hoping that the attendance is really good. And the weather is supposed to be beautiful, which will be nice. Hopefully I'll do a little bit better then the last show. 2010 Show Dates
|Peridot chips on pink triangle|
This is one that I just finished, actually I finished it up at my show last week (sorry I used my phone to take the picture). I used peridot chips as little fringies. I didn't start thinking I would use the peridot, but while I was making it, I remembered I had the chips and thought they would go great with the pink and bright green seed beads. So I added them. I think they really add a lot to the triangle. I've seen people add fringe and other accents to the triangles, but I've never tried myself. I'm very happy I did. So I guess I'll have to try this again with some of the other chips I have.
Well I'm off. I have a few more things I need to finish up before my show this Saturday and I have to make sure J is as relaxed as possible tonight.
*Thank you to everyone who gave me pointers on my set up for shows. I'm going to try a few of them this weekend and see how things turn out. I'll have pictures next week.*
