Well…….. I FINALLY made it to the opening night of an exhibition I am participating in.

How pathetic is that you ask? I find the drive back in the dark, with potential kangaroos, wallabies & possums moving across the road in front of the car, very stressful and until last night it was just all too hard. Luckily friends who wanted to go were kind enough to meet me at a corner not too far from home and that made a BIG difference!

It was a nice evening, lots of people turned up and Fleur was surprised I made it. I didn’t tell her “just in case” I couldn’t make it.

Sophie Lewis put on an amazing performance with the dance of the Seven veils and the basement of the winery was magically transformed for the exhibition with gorgeous fabrics draped across the wall and it was all very nice!

I feel very honoured to be exhibiting my line SimplyBea alongside Diana Keir, Fred Peters, Janine Mackintosh, Jenny Clapson, Mark Capon & Neil Sheppard.

My theme was The Seven Chakras

There were lots of favourable comments on my bracelets and it made it all so very worthwhile putting in that extra effort and the twinges in my left hand…… and it was oh so very nice chatting with the lovely Suzanne from Melbourne who was the first person to buy two of the Seven Chakra bracelets.

The Seven Chakras

A fantastic way to wear all seven Chakras at one time and the beads are textured so they are also great as “worry beads”.

It is always nice to know where my pieces go to and how they are perceived. All in all…… a very exciting evening after an eventful day.

A “blip” at work which set off an anxiety attack – I am going to have to handle that better because I know there will be more to come.

A fabulous surprise to be called by the Post Master saying….. “Bea – there’s a parcel for you, it has JUST arrived…….!” ……. YES…. it was from the USA…… and it had my new baby, THE SCORPION!!!!

So now…. fun and games, trying to set it up…….. AND getting ready for the NEXT exhibition opening next week at Fine Art!

Catch you later – I am soooooo excited!!!!!
