Treasure Hunting Weekend

Hello it's great to be back. I took a little blog-cation last week. But I'm back this week with my creative juices jazzed by a weekend of treasure hunting. The Gem Show was in town....sooooo dangerous. I spent many hours with Lora over at Such and Such going from booth to booth drooling over all the purty shiny objects. Amazingly enough I stayed in my assigned budget. Then on Sunday the PMC Guild in LA the New Metal Artists had a "Trash to Treasure" meeting. Everyone brought items they no longer wanted and we bartered, traded, swapped freebies, and generally had a great time. Lora has a much better description on her blog, check it out. So here's my haul.

And I'm proud to report it is all safely entered into my component data base. I have spreadsheet I have been working on for pricing my work in my etsy shop. The first page is a spreadsheet for pricing a piece and the second page is a data base of my components and what they cost. It's extremely handy. I'm trying to get it all together to offer a class. But I must admit I have missed almost all my self imposed deadlines. It's turning out a little harder than I expected. But I will "keep on keeping on" and hopefully sometime soon it will all come together. I'll keep you updated.

I'm hoping that the section that includes *gem show* is just an address and not the vendor. You DO list the name of the vendor right?

I need to do this too. I have an ancient AppleWorks document with vendors and prices, but it's years out of date.

You got some great stuff. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

You are so responsible about keeping track of your expenses. I have to try to do that too.
