Bead Cruise 2010, you flew by way too fast.
Dare I say, this was the best Bead Cruise yet! I loved all the instructors. They were so talented, generous and fun. The ship was amazing. Each port was beautiful. We enjoyed beading, shopping, eating, laughing, laughing until we were crying. There were celebrations, love you Sherry! And adoration - congrats to the Design Contest winners! We hardly slept, there was so much to do and see.
But like the say on the islands, 'Leave only footprints, take only memories' - most of my memories were not caught on film. I was surrounded by shutterbugs, so I will borrow from their photos and tell you more in the days to come.
The photos above: Coco Cay, St. Thomas, bead shop in St. Thomas. Lunch, the market and the beautiful view all in St. Martin.

Etsy shop. All orders will ship out on Monday. I plan on spending the rest of the week getting ready for the Bead Cruise and hanging out with my family! My shop will reopen on the 25th.

In the projects I used items from our sponsors. Pictured above is a ceramic pendant from Every Heart Crafts and the face cab is from Earthenwood Studios. Just two of the awesome artists, shops and manufactures who donated items for our gift bags.
Okay, back to the grind for me!

etsy shop or over at my good friends, http://www.bellomodo.com/.
If you don't hear much from me over the next few days I'm buried under a pile of beads - send help and chocolate!

I had a wonderful 2009 and look forward to even more exciting times ahead.
I have big news to share with you soon, very soon I promise! I'm looking foward to setting sail on the 17th on the Bead Cruise and most of my energy is spent working on kits and other goodies for our participants. The Art Bead Scene has been preparing our new challenges for 2010. The beads above are a hint for this month's painting picked by me. I have a few new limited edition beads made just for the challenge, they will be up soon. That's my January in a nutshell.
I want to wish all my readers and friends the best and brightest for 2010. I'm so thankful to be a part of this creative community, you have no idea!
