Bead Fest 2010 ~ Part I

Just got back from Bead Fest late yesterday afternoon. It was such a wonderful trip and there is so much to talk about so I figured I'd better break this up into parts! I stayed with Kelley Thursday night so we could get up early and ride to the airport together.
We were so excited to go and see Nancy and Lori that we had a video chat!

In the morning, we were both so excited. I could barely sit still in my seat...and of course Kelley and I took some pictures.

We arrived in Philly around 1:30pm and were greeted by Lori and Nancy at the was so nice to finally meet them in person!

Lori drove us to the hotel and we checked in and immediately went down to the show. Staying at the hotel where the show was a huge plus. The first day I was really so overwhelmed at how big the show was and I figured it would be best not to buy anything the first day. So the first afternoon was spent looking around and took everything in....

There was SO much to look at and I am glad that I just looked the first day and didn't buy anything.
But I certainly made up for it the next day! Tomorrow I will share some pictures of what I bought.
