Check it out! While I was away at the Best Bead Show in Tucson my copies came and I did indeed get the cover on Lapidary Journals March/April issue of Step by Step Beads. So that’s one secret out of the bag that I’ve been so excited about and didn’t want to jinx.
Second, I also got the go ahead to let it leak that I have a book coming out. I’m not giving all of the details until the cover art is done but I’ve already submitted the first draft (without pictures) and it’s in the hands of the editor.
It is SO good to be home. Many lessons learned at this show, regarding selling at the shows and making arrangements to stay at the shows! Let’s just put it this way, it started out when I left the house at 5:30 a.m. and realized we had a rooster in my neighborhood. Yes, it was EARLY! So, I stopped at Starbucks, got a muffin and coffee and headed over to the gas station to fill up for the drive.
Can I say that it’s not a good sign when, at 6:00 a.m. you pump gas and the hose leaks? I used to love the smell of gas before this unleaded stuff came around but still not enough to be cooped up in a car for 2 and a half hours with the smell on your hands, even after washing.
