Bead & Button Plans Hatched!

So Friday I had this little hatchling of an idea that maybe I could go to Bead & Button. I searched around and found a great deal on the flight. A roommate was next on the list and my buddy Erin came to the rescue. So I'm am freakin' going to Bead & Button! I would not have guessed last week that this would be the plan, but that's life. Sometimes you just have to grab a hold of a wing and prayer and see what happens.

Bello Modo will be selling my work at booth #957 and I will be there throughout the show visiting with customers and helping in their booth. I do hope you'll stop by to say hello and see what they have. I'll be at the show Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

And what does Bello Modo have? Well I sent an order last week that was a sampling of my most popular beads. Since then I've found that Lorelei Eurto has an urchin necklace project in the new issue of BeadStyle, so I've been making tons of urchins and summery beads to add to Bello Modo's inventory.

New things that will be there: Van Gogh beads in long tubes and lentils, branch beads in new summer colors: raspberry, periwinkle, antique gold & navy. Limited edition colors of knobby urchins, urchin connectors, starfish charms and pendants. And finally just to amuse my muse I've created some eggs. Very painterly, precious eggs. We'll have to see how they go. I won't be able to photograph them until I get back.

Now I need to pack, sand beads and map out my plan of attack for shopping at the show!!!

And speaking of shopping, it's always nicer to have extra money when bead shopping is involved so I'm having a sale for my blog readers. Everything in my etsy shop, except the grab bags, are 20% off. I will send a revised invoice after your purchase. Add B & B sale to the notes when you checkout for your discount! Sale ends Monday at midnight. All orders will ship out on Tuesday before I leave.

Hi Heather! That's great! I'd love it if you'd join me (and other friends) for a meal at one of the Thai restaurants located near the side-entrance to the Hyatt or for a late-nite dinner. I'll email over a schedule of times and maybe we can kvetch! -Rachel

I know I'm going next year for sure. We should make plans together for rooms. Its such great fun. Bev and I usually stay outside of Milwaukee and drive in, much less expensive than staying downtown. My vehicles seats 7....
I probably won't be thinking of you guys cause I am going to Pheonix for 4 days.

Enjoy the day!
Erin
