On another subject my summer show applications are finally starting to come back. Most of the summer shows are juried which means that when I apply I don't always know that I will get to do the show. I am very excited with a message yesterday that I got into the Grand Cities Art Festival in Grand Forks, North Dakota and it's sister city in Minnesota. Here is a link to that show if you want to go look.
Well I had best get a move on it is almost time to go. Have a great weekend.

These are the new spiky beads I have been working on. I have made lots of colors and the more of them I make the more ideas for jewelry I have using them. I have a plate full for the Omaha show this weekend then I am going to make a bunch just for me to use.
Well that was a lot of pictures for today but I had been trying to get them all photographed for the last couple of days.

Well I just have to show off again. Boy are you going to get tired of this! But I just have too. On the way home Sunday I stopped and picked up a copy of the April issue of the Jewelry Crafts Magazine my friend Carole Rodgers writes articles for some of the magazines and she used a bead of mine in this one. The yellow and orange focal bead is mine and the article gives me credit and my web site is mentioned Yeah! Okay now I will stop. Just click on the pages for a larger view and to read the artical.

I have to show off just a little bit. The bead show in Kearney this weekend had a judged show of jewelry and I entered two pieces, this one took first place and the other, the petal necklace that you can find on my web site www.tanyamcguire.com or click the link to the right, took an honorable mention.
It was a good show and people seemed to have fun. And of course I had fun running around in Lincoln with friends and visiting at the Nebraska Bead Society meeting.

Any way I promised to tell you about last week. The big thing is that I spent most of the week trying to get some answers about my van and they finally late Thursday decided they will fix it but because it took them so long it will have to wait until I come back from Nebraska next week. I was so whinny and grumpy I just did not want to bore all of you with my junk. Sorry for not posting for so long though.

Well it has not been a very good day around here. On the way to take my son to school I got hit so I have spent the day going to the insurance agent and body shop and looking at new cars, vans, trucks, and guess what just like the last time I do not like the new cars. I like my van for the things I do with it.
Any way no new beads got made but at least I have a picture from what I brought in yesterday. These are really tiny triangles they are only about a quarter inch across and I think they will be really fun for dangles on a charm bracelet.
I am off to a hot bath and I just might go to bed and hide for a while to get over the very grumpy way I feel.
