"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!
