Did you miss me? I know this blog has been left a little high and dry of late. And I apologize once again. There are times in life when things have to take the back burner. I’ve been as busy as the busiest worker bee, and getting a lot of things done. And I have to admit that I have become a big fan of Facebook and the status updates. It’s so much easier than logging in to the blog, typing a whole post, adding the pictures, and posting. So if you are in need of more frequent Carter commentary, come find me over there. More brief comments, but more up to date. But I do have good intentions of blogging more often. At least the intention is there!
So what have I been up to, you ask? Well, in a nutshell: paperwork, filling orders, paperwork, wedding planning, paperwork, adding Summer designs to the website, paperwork, going home for my cousin’s wedding, paperwork, getting ready for the ACRE wholesale show, paperwork, getting Bead Trust ready for Bead & Button, paperwork. Get the idea? Oh, and a bit of sleeping and eating and exercise. And I have taken a little time for a visit to a friend’s vineyard in the wine country, a few dinners with pals, and the like. We can’t deny ourselves of all leisurely activities! It’s been a whirlwind of a start to the summer. But I’ve been having fun, and that’s important.
I’m at the ACRE wholesale show right now in Las Vegas. It started today, and there’s a pretty good feel so far. It is significantly smaller (in terms of number of vendors) but I hear that the buyer count is up. And there’s a good energy here, so that helps a lot. There’s nothing worse than a slow show where everyone is sitting around moping and feeling sorry for themselves. It just brings the whole mood down. So I’m so thankful that the mood is up here.
From here I go straight to Bead & Button where I’ll be working the Bead Trust booth with Aveesh. I look forward to B&B. It’s a fun show, and we get to catch up with all of our friends. So I’m looking forward to it. Though the traveling does get a bit exhausting, it’s worth it.
I’ll try to be back sooner rather than later. If you’re at ACRE or B&B, come by and say hi!
