Beadbash on the Lake September 2017

It’s been a year since I went to Mentor, Ohio to attend a Bead Bash and I’m happy to see that they look to be a legit event for bead lovers across the land to congregate at πŸŽ‰πŸ™πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

I’ve been wearing my collection of event beads to celebrate from afar

Even though I didn’t make it to this one, my memories of last Fall’s Bash are still fresh, you can read my post about it here #beadbashonthelake

I spent a ridiculous amount of money and had an amazing amount of fun meeting people in person that I’ve ‘talked’ to on social media. Julia and I made a How to #mcctrish video if you would like some inspiration.

This year I took advantage of preordering the event beads and Great Lakes Boutique was so awesome with their delivery, I had my beads the day before the event started ❀️ how freaking fantastic is that ?

Some extra beads made it onto my order πŸ˜±πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈI mean who stops at 3 beads? The blush waterish stoppers are an Ohm beads exclusive to Great Lakes Boutique for this Bead Bash and the Truebeadz polar bear ( which won’t stay in the right position for love or money 😩) is the other must have bead for me. I ‘threw’ in an Ohm beads igloo to wear with the polar bear and a Truebeadz pumpkin that I regretted not buying last year ( perfect for #orangeoctober2017) 

One of the reasons I needed the blush waterish stoppers was this Champagne d’Elsie bead I ordered from Anne Gauthier ( rosΓ© goes with everything ) 

I think they will work with many beads I have 

The polar bear and igloo have a strong Canadiana vibe for me 

There will be lots of ways to wear them 

once winter comes ( something to look forward to instead of the cold ) 

Did you go to Bead Bash in person or on line? Did you buy all the beads? I missed the party times and I hope to see more Ohmtiques in the future because some of them have stolen my heart

I need a place to put some of the words that crowd my brain. I think that by sorting and organizing them, I will tame them. They can wield power outside of me. I am trying to write more often, to make it a habit, like flossing. September is full of new beginnings
