Another bead show, another year in debt! This was my 6th annual trip to Denver for what is billed as the second largest bead show in the country. (Tucson is the largest). It's still overwhelming, but not quite as much as the first time, when I entered a mammoth tent and saw row after row after row of long tables, each piled high with strands of gems in every imaginable size and color. I stopped just inside the door to catch my breath and take it all in when my friend, Deb, suddenly appeared out of nowhere and stood beside me. Giddy and wild-eyed, I declared, "This must be heaven"! "No", she said. "If this was heaven we could get naked and roll around in them".
