- I attended "Food for Life" classes with my friend Michele. I now eat edamame, brown rice, and more salads. We also try to eat ground turkey more often and have the occasional non-meat meal.
- I worked on cleaning my studio (which lasted all of 2 days) and entering inventory into a jewelry designer database program during a week where I had NOTHING SCHEDULED ALL WEEK. Yes, that's bold, all in caps, and underlined. I was going to italicize it, too, but I thought that was a bit much. No LBS board meetings or programs, no doctor's appointments for Mom or for me, nothing. It was really nice, and I got a lot done.
- I started going to a 5 session yoga class. I cried during the first two but not during the third. Yay! I got the spins during the first class which freaked me out, and I was too sore during the second and got frustrated. During the third (which was yesterday), I kept half my mind on yoga and the other half on projects I want to work on. That helped.
- I was all over the Bead&Button Show June 8-12. I worked the LBS booth one night, I helped my friend Maggie teach three beading classes (not to mention all the pre-work beforehand so I felt comfortable with what we were teaching!), and I worked the Show floor for my friend Bronwen Heilman all day on Saturday. Not to mention shopping, schmoozing, and reconnecting with people I met last year. Oh - while I was working Bronwen's booth I also reconnected with the Maid of Honor from my first wedding! Anita stopped by, and I squealed and hugged the stuffing out of her.
- I did a little bit of scrapbooking. I'm only a year and a half behind. Eek! I know lots of people are much farther behind, but I've been trying to keep up with current stuff and get back to older things. I need to get moving!
- Finally... I taught my first beading class at a local bead store. The bracelet is called "Shadowed Diamonds" and is made with adorable and substantial peanut beads.
Here's a picture of it in one of the color schemes:
- I also made funky instructions to go with the bracelet to try to stand out from what other designers do. Ooh. I just called myself a designer. I guess I am!
