Beads Baubles and Jewels Wrap Up and Extra Links

Kinda still running around crazy here lately!  I jumped right from Beads Baubles and Jewels into getting ready for a sales call tomorrow and my home show on Wednesday.  I wanted to share a couple of pictures from the taping before I get back to work though.  Above is me and Katie Hacker after filming my last segment (gotta love the myspace self portrait style picture!)
Look, it's me on the set!  Check out all the crazy cameras and stuff!  I had a blast and it went so quickly.  Katie is a great host and has a way of making everyone feel so calm and relaxed.  Even when I am bumbling through my steps with a runny nose. (yeah that happened...embarrassing!..hehe)
I also got to snag a picture with the fabulous Candie Cooper, who was working on all sorts of fun stuff!  I was really inspired by some of the things she was doing.  I also saw Cythia Thornton of Green Girl Studios, who did a great job with her segment too!  I had a really great time... I am so glad I did it again!

I missed my Sunday posting this week while getting back into the swing of things, so here are last week's Extra Links:
