Saturday TastyLinks with a Little Whine

Greetings Grublets:

One more work day and I can totally unwind this evening and tomorrow.  We're off to Harrisburg for a three hour book signing and make it and take it session at the Grand Opening of their new AC Moore.  If you live in the area, please join us!  You can get the 411 here.  We'll have a bunch of Beadalon QuickLinks so you can create your own fabulous necklace or bracelet and you can purchase a copy of one of my books and I'll personally sign it just for you.  Avalon is my demo buddy and we're going to enjoy some Mother/Daughter time together. 

I've been a little edgy this week...okay I've been a lot bitchy this week.  It happens.  It's not always rainbows and unicorns.  I juggle a lot of balls every day and I have many different, freelance designer, blogger, consultant, TV spokesperson, craft industry celebrity...and this week I've been doing them all.  Add to that being a mom to a small family and a rather sizeable menagerie of animals...and sometimes I'd just like a girl's night out.  Which I never get.

What's up with that?!

My girls are all too far away.  Dangit.

The Amish ladies haven't embraced me into the fold.  Shocking, isn't it?

Maybe if I was just a little less...sparkly and bitchy...and I liked champagne a little less...

Har har.

Thanks to all of the fine folks out there who have cross linked to my blog and said such lovely things about me on the interwebs this week.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.
