Back from Bead Fest and Extra Links

I am back home from Philly today!  We got in this morning and I have been running around all day, taking care of business, resting, and visiting with family and friends.  I missed my doggie!  And I get to see my sweetie very soon too!  Here is a quick picture of my bead show stash.  I'll tell you more this week, but I am exhausted tonight!  The internet connection at the hotel was not great and I didn't have much time or energy to blog.  I missed posting the Extra links yesterday, so here they are now:
