Sorry I haven't posted in a while, Christmas orders kind of took over my life for the last month. But it is all over and I can breath now! well sort of...
I would like to thank everyone that made 2009 such a successful and amazing year for me. My family & friends, my customers and my coworkers at Argenta Bead. You have all been so supportive and kind to me, I can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for Bella Vita Jewelry.
Right now there isn't much jewelry being made, although I am DYING to bust out my new soldering kit. Let me tell you, I have a brain bursting with ideas for soldering!
I am hoping I get to play with it before I head to Tucson at the end of the month. But on top of preparing for Tucson I am also preparing to move and to wrap up all my end of the year paper work. Two words: receipt nightmare!!! This is what my work station looks like : (
But on to fun things, Tucson 2010! I am leaving for Tucson on the 30th of January and returning on February 5th. I am going with my Mom, my friend Kacey (from Fayetteville), and my new friends from Little Rock, Penny, Patti and Cindi. We are all driving out there in some sort of SUV that will hold us all. I CANNOT wait, I am soooo excited to get there and SHOP!
This years budget is about 3x's more than I had last year and I got a lot of stuff last year, I am still using some of what I bought. Going to Tucson for me is not all work, I call it a vacation too. And if I run out of money before we leave then I will find a nice sunny spot and soak up some vitamin D from the huge ball of sun. The weather is always so nice, 50-60 degree days and full sunshine! I am hoping to blog everyday that I am there, I want to share my new finds with my readers and tell about the trip in general. If you don't know anything about the Tucson Gem and Mineral show check out the Tucson Show Guide website for more info. It is the largest show of its kind in the world.
