On Saturday, I had my first of several Book Signing Events. It was really, really fun. Not only did I enjoy talking about the book that Jamie Hogsett and I wrote together - Show Your Colors, but also I enjoyed teaching a free make-it-take-it using Soft Flex Beading Wire. Teaching is easily a favorite part of my job. And frankly, it felt good just to be in a bead store surrounded by people who share my same hobby. It was a really fun experience. I look forward to all of my upcoming events.
Of course I could not resist from picking up a few trinkets for a future project that I have in mind. I have a feeling that this book signing thing might become a little expensive. I can't imagine going into a bead store and not making some sort of purchase.
Design and Adorn Beading Studio is such a wonderful, full service bead store. If you live in Tucson, Arizona or visit for the gem shows, you should stop in and check it out. They offer an array of classes. I was extremely impressed with their top-of-the-line customer service.
