Yep. It's 8:30 on Wednesday night, truck's gassed up and loaded already with non-freezable items, all the beads are still down here, but everything I need is packed and ready to go first thing tomorrow morning.

I really do have to work on a better system of packing, like maybe put everything into the same size bins so they can stack... duh. Acquire a trolley-dolly of some description. And just maybe stop bringing so much stuff with me.

The good news is I got my storage area cleaned up. The work tables are another story. Total disaster.

Here is the item I am donating to The Gem Expo Silent Auction with all proceeds going to Philippines disaster relief. You can get information how to place bids online on this item as well as the other vendors' donations on the Gem Expo website, or you can place your bid when you come to the show.

20 Sleeping Beauty turquoise nuggets
And........ just because "it" is on its way (possibly even this weekend), not to mention I find this hysterically funny.......

There are all kinds of draws for fabulous prizes, so come early, come often -- price break if you buy a three-day pass. I was surprised at the July show to meet so many people who came at least two days, if not the three. There is a lot to see and do -- many different classes at all levels of expertise, not to mention many great gifts for Christmas.
