Bead Bonanza

Before a "big show," I love to go to my local bead shop for inspiration, and of course new beads.  On Saturday, I journeyed out west to Papio Beads.

I say 'out west' as they used to be less than 5 minutes from my house, but earlier in the year they relocated to to West Omaha just off of 144th & Center St to have a bigger, better space.  This translates to more beads!

Lucky for me, in planning this mini-vacation to far, far away places, not only were they having a big sale.  But they also happen to be located next to one of my FAVORITE cookie stores - Eileen's Colassal Cookies.  So, after scoring some new bead strands, I replenished my energy with a Monster Cookie.

The beads in this treasure trove are destined to be some new ensembles for the YWCA Holiday Jewelry Extravanza at work.  For those in downtown Omaha on December 7th & 8th, you can swing by the Union Pacific Railroad building at 14th & Douglas St. between 11:00 to 1:00 pm.  The sales will take place on the 2nd floor bridge enroute to the cafeteria.  So come on down to buy some fabulous jewelry and consider staying for lunch in our cafeteria (it is very tastey, don't let the word "cafeteria" scare you).   A portion of the proceeds will go to help support the mission of the YWCA.
