So It Begins...

And, so it begins... coverage of the Tucson Gem Shows as seen by me.

We haven't even got there yet, but guess who we ran into at the airport in Minnesota?  That's right, Katie Hacker!  She was on her way to CHA.  We had a nice chat while we waited to board our planes.  Usually we only have a few minutes to catch up, so it was a particular treat for us to have a good solid chunk of time to talk.  I admire Katie and all her hard work!  She hosts a TV show, helps with a farm, has two kids, launched a component line, teaches, and writes books!  In fact, Katie is coming out with a new book!  It's called, Live Wire Jewelry: Make Colorful Designs That Shine!  I can't wait to see it!  It comes out February 9th and is available for pre-order now!

Don't worry... you'll probably see me post about Katie again.  After her whirlwind adventure in California, she'll be joining us in the desert for the Gem Shows.
