Chris will be doing demonstrations along with all the other artists, as it is part of the contract for the artists (if you are selling, you are demonstrating!). It is really amazing to visit with and watch all of the artists make there art! Of course, we spend our money expanding our artist marble collections!
Artists Participating at the 2014 show:
Hot House Glass
Sara Sally LaGrand
*Cathy & Colin Richardson (*2014 featured artists)
James Yaun, was just featured in an article in Bead & Button! There are several on the list that we have not met yet, so that is very exciting! Chris will be watching a special demonstration by Cathy & Colin Richardson on Thursday, if you click their link above you can see their beautiful creations!
Here are some of Chris's beautiful new creations for the show!
The last picture shows our marble cases for transport. They are all full now and there are a few more that wouldn't fit in the cases! HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

Well, guest blogger Chris fell down on the job. No updates came while I was gone, did they? So here is the photos of some things along the trip to Tucson!
|Just before leaving Julie's Xpressions on Tuesday (in the blizzard).|
|Me getting settled in the van.|
|Dressed for the day of travel (blizzard over, delays yet to start)|
|Mary, Julie, and Jacee caught unaware of me sneaking photos with my iPad.|
|Plane beside us at the terminal, we were loaded on the plane an hour and a half before taking off, due to||frozen lines etc|

"No, Luna you can't go! Julie said no cats are allowed on this bead buying trip! There has to be more room for BEADS, so NO CATS."
Ok, if you are a pet owner, especially a cat owner, I am sure you pack the suitcase, unpack the cat, pack the suitcase, unpack the cat, etc. etc. repeat, repeat, repeat. My suitcase has been out for about a week, slowly accumulating my possessions to fly off to Tucson on a bead buying extravaganza with my boss; Julie, her daughter; Jacie, Mary Powell, and Deb Brooks! In that time, Luna and I have repeated this ritual on a daily basis. She is so adorable, she was purring the whole time we were doing our photo shoot this morning! But, I am leaving and she is not! We head off to Omaha tomorrow afternoon and fly out before the cats even get out of bed on Wednesday! We have to be at the airport around 5 am and we will be in Tucson shopping for beads around lunchtime! Whoot! Whoot! On, Friday night we will play with polymer clay at the Friday night party with Christi Friesen and Deb and I are going to take a class on Saturday with Christi Friesen, learning to use Art Concrete and polymer clay! In between we will be Julie's little worker bead bees, hunting for all sorts of goodies to bring back for the store in Hastings and to add to our own bead hordes! Watch here for updates from my Guest Blogger, Chris (also my very favoritist guy in the whole world)!

The marbles created by Chris have been a HUGE part of this year! Chris had professional photos taken of his marbles early in the year, and in June they were published in The Flow magazine.
