Thank you, New Plymouth

We got back from New Plymouth a couple of days ago, and finally have the van unpacked and repacked ready for the Nelson Market tomorrow.
We had a fabulous time doing the Dunkley’s Great New Zealand Craft Show together.
It’s the first time the Toy Boy and I have worked side-by-side like that and it was fun!
AND…we won first prize for the best stand at the show!

New Plymouth is a beautiful spot – being right on the west coast and right beside Mount Taranaki. We feel a sense of ownership of that mountain – we can see her from our home on crisp winters’ mornings.

So thanks, New Plymouth! I really enjoyed meeting you lovers of beads and beautiful things.

I can see why you won first prize, it looks fabulous. Glad to hear the new position with your Toy Boy worked out well ;)

Les! I am so glad to see you have started a blog! Wow! This is very exciting news, indeed! You and Mr. Toy Boy (tee hee, is that opposed to having a boy toy?) are taking in some prizes. You both deserve it and I am glad to see these kudos are coming your way.

You know how much I absolutely adore your work, so I will be back here all the time. :-)

Thank you for linking to me, too! I will do the same.

PS, I can't seem to make the link to my wordpress account work, so I used the blogger one to post here.

Hello hello, and welcome to the blogging world, I came over from Kim's blog to have look at your art and also read the interview she made with you, which I had missed somehow back then. Wonderful colors, and the beads often look like little pieces of rainbow:) My favourite is the Chakra bracelet with all those awsome colors combined! Have a great day and greetings from Paris,

Hi Kim,
Thank you so much for your lovely comments and the link on your blog.
I have a lot to learn about this blogging business, but I have wonderful models to learn from in my friends!
The Toy Boy was given his name by fellow marketeers at the Nelson Market, and well, I just couldn't resist!

Hello Andrea,
Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind words. I have visited your blog a few times and just love your work - it's so expressive! I've also loved reading of Kim's trip to Paris and her time with you there.
I'm very envious!
