B&B Second Class and Shopping Preview Night

Thursday, Shannon and I took our all day class Hoity Toity. The instructor, Shelley Nybakke, was very warm and amusing, and the project was stunning.
This is what the finished project is supposed to look like:
And Shannon and I got about one and 3/4" of one of the double-sided wheels done. Step 7 or 8 said " And make 15 more of these", or something of that kind....needless to say, we didn't finish the project in class ;) Here is a close-up of the front and back of one of the wheels I did finish.

Thursday is the night when the show floor is open to show attendees only (meaning those who registered for a badge and classes) for a limited number of hours in the evening before it opens to the paying public on Friday. It's sort of a prestigious thing to go because you feel special with your 'badge' and all.

This is Keshi, the B&B mascot to greet us at the entrance :)

The show floor is huge, and there are everything from seedbead vendors to purveyors of vintage crystal, and everything in between. We showed up a fashionably late so that we didn't have to wait in line, and the floor was packed by the time we got there. Here are the first things I picked up that night.

It was a little tough to get in to the booths, and Shannon and I were hungry after Hoity Toity, so we cut out a little early to the Applebees, only to wait an hour to get the wrong meal. After a talk with the manager, we walked down to an Italian restaurant to eat before we passed out for the day.
