Greetings fellow travelers,

I wrote four days out of seven days in my Morning Pages this past week. This is my week 11 check in and I am eager to complete my journey.

For my Artist’s Date I went to the Bead and Button Show. This is my second time going to this particular show. First time I went was three years ago and I was overwhelmed by the size. I previously spent all day and only managed to get through half the show. This time I was aware of the enormity of the event so I decided to take a more leisurely approach. This time I was much more interested in talking to the people around me and looking for opportunities to take some pictures of some work that caught my eye. The two pictures above were the favorites I saw and took pictures at this year’s Bead and Button show. I collected some business cards and I had a nice conversation with a woman who came to the show from Chicago for the first time. I found the food to be very expensive. I spent $14.75 for a cheeseburger, garlic Parmesan fries and a large RC Cola. Good thing though that I had a ride for a $1 and free admission ticket for the show. Might plan to eat a larger meal before I go to the show next time. Overall though it was good to get out to Milwaukee for a nice trip. I love looking at the sparkle of beads.

After the Bead and Button Show I went to Marasco’s Craft King Brookfield, Wisconsin. It was an old fashioned craft store but the prices were really good. I picked up some purple pony beads for a beaded medallion I want to make. I noticed this little bear at the store and snapped a picture.

I spent over an hour walking around the Bead and Button show for my walk. Later I was exhausted and took a nap.

Issue of recovery is while I am grateful for almost being done with my journey in Walking in This World, I am sad that my journey with such wonderful people is ending soon. I really enjoyed the mix of people in my online and face to face Walking in This World journeys. I hope we continue to keep in contact.

Warm regards,
