Ok everyone knows I  love  registration day, Just like all the events at the shop it has a party atmosphere. And who doesn’t like a good party particularly at  this time of year!! A little colour, good friends, beads and anticipation of some new adventures all those things are much appreciated in my life.

I know Canadians always talk about the weather, but…..do you believe this WEATHER!!   My son who lives in Whitehorse, texted me and asked if I was considering moving up there, They have been warmer all week, every single day. So SPRING!! registration is sounding like robins and tulips. I can’t promise spring weather but the atmosphere will be warm and inviting. So bundle up and come in and start registration with some laughs, beads and warm smiles from friends.13.Sculptured-vintage-cuff.-we

We have an outstanding line up of both classes and teachers, actually 39 out of the 49 classes are new. The beginning of any project  is filled with potential, it is  like sunrise or new art supplies exciting, revitalizing and full of hope. This particular term is bubbling over with potential.  We have some exciting classes with the new shapes of beads, we have some really exciting new leather classes and metal classes to spark your interest in the hidden qualities of metal. So check out the website or come in and have a look at the samples. http://www.beadsofcolour.com

Our guest artist is also pretty amazing. She is worth the trip alone.

If that isn’t enough some of the finds from Tucson are already priced and in the shop. So mark your calendar…bundle up and come and get the spring session off to a warm, colourful, joyous start.19.The-bracelet-Monrena-Lise-2

Bernadette Rule and me before the interview July 22/12

What fun! I hate preparing or even thinking about going live on Radio or TV (I have done both).  Yet 9 times out of 10, it goes well and sometimes fantastic. Yesterday was one of those times, it was fantastic. It was just so natural. Bernadette has an easy interview style and manages to fill in the gaps or correct any errors you may have made. If she knew, they were errors. You are talking to someone with whom you have a history, who can see your facial expressions and your hand jesters . The audience doesn’t have those same advantages. I noticed how Bernadette would gently fill in the gaps. She is great!  I was going to tell you before hand but it was one of those should have, could have, would have days. So here is the link to the pod cast. http://archive.org/details/artwaves  Please post it everywhere you think people who are interested might see it. She does a great job of supporting artist in the Hamilton area, so lets support her. Thanks Bernadette it was fun!

In the booth ready to go live!

 

Kate & Marcia's Classes

Kate McKinnon & Marcia DeCoster at Beads of Colour

Since Debi was tripped up by the computer gremlins this morning, she asked if I would update everyone on some pretty cool news! Our classes for Kate McKinnon and Marcia DeCoster this year are going to be incredible! Kate is doing seed bead work (for all levels!) as well as fine silver clay essentials (for those determined to participate in this exciting new medium!), while Marcia DeCoster is going to “feed the bead need” for our more experienced beaders with some great dimensional right angle weave work, including her famous “Urchin Lariat”! Check out the classes on our poster and I can’t wait to see you at the shop on Saturday!
