Right now I'm working on some new designs, samples for the bead cruise (one of my cabochons is being used as the focal for Beverly Herman's "Star of the Sea" class), inventory for Etsy, swaps I promised people AND inventory for Bead Fest.
It can be difficult finding a balance to do all these things and sometimes I feel like the funny face in the photo.
I keep it all straight by making lists...LOTS of lists! At the end of the day, I know I'll pull it all together and be ready for the show in time. I've already done this twice before so it's just a matter of staying organized (again, lists) and eating a lot of candy (yes, that's my big not-so-secret).
Now excuse me while I go hide in the bead cave for the next three months....
