Living on Tulsa time

We are headed out tomorrow morning for Tulsa for the Junior League's Holiday Mart. This is my first experience with the Holiday Mart in Tulsa but not my first experience with Tulsa. It is a beautiful city and I look forward to seeing it again after so many years.

Some wonderful creations to offer. Of course plenty of Halloween and also some great Christmas, two of my favorite holidays, probably the weather is a part of it.

Right after Tulsa we are headed back to Denver for the Junior League's Holiday show. Can't wait, Denver was such a warm and inviting bunch of people in May, I know it will be the same.

Weekend behind, weekend ahead

What an outstanding weekend I just had. Went to see our son at MU and enjoy the MU/Bowling Green game. Excellent time and great to see Mitch is taking care of himself and loving Columbia. I see why, it is a great town, I have my favorite house already picked out!

Next weekend September 19 & 20 we are headed to Springfield, Mo. (another great town) and we will be in booth 5 at Cider Days on Historic Walnut Street. We will have lots of great charms, especially Halloween. If you don't get a chance to go to the event, stop by The Persimmon Tree in Ozark. Marilyn and Linda have a great selection of charms and lots of gifts and home decor.

Don't you love fall?

Upcoming Show - Springfield, Mo

I am very excited to be exhibiting again in Springfield, Mo at Cider Days on Historic Walnut Street. This will be my third year and the people in SW Missouri are wonderful. Always a great crowd, very friendly and the day just flies by. It is wonderful to be outside (even under a tent) with crisp fall weather all around and of course having lunch at Ebbet's Field is pretty terrific too.

This year I will have a much larger selection of Halloween charms and something new, round charms. The glass on the round charms comes from Germany and the feel of it is great.

I hope if you are in the area that you come by and see us. Do not have location assignment yet but it is worth walking the entire 2 blocks. The homes behind all of us exhibitors are fabulous. Might have to take that camera of mine along.

What a summer!

This has been quite a summer with some real peeks and valleys. Our son heads off to college in 4 days so the empty nest is surely upon us. His health is still a concern but right now he is doing well.

Got our acceptance letter yesterday for Cider Days in Springfield, Sept. 19 & 20. This is an excellent outdoor venue. Lots of exhibitors, a few 'craftsy' folks but mostly some nice art. It is a daytime show so if you are in the Springfield area please stop by. Historic Walnut Street is such a beautiful street, great homes.

We have some other great shows up ahead. We have a one day show in Naperville, Il. in August, Junior League show in Des Moines, Denver, Tulsa and waiting to hear back on Memphis. All and all we will stay very busy.

I have over 275 Halloween charms right now and my goal is 500 so while it is 90 degrees outside, inside we have it a bit cooler with the fall charms, just puts you in a great state of mind.

Enjoy the rest of summer.

Just For Her Expo

If you happen to be in town the weekend of May 30 - 31 (Kansas City area) there is going to be a great show at the Overland Park Convention Center. It is Friday night from 5 to 10PM and again on Saturday, May 30th from 10 am to 6 pm. There are over 140 exhibitors and it sounds a lot like a Holiday Mart in May.

I will have lots of new charms at the show, some Keep Calm charms, round charms, butterflies, birds, nature, seashells, European and a large selection of initials. The charms and I will be located in Bliss at La-De-Da's booth. La-De-Da is a great shop in the Northland (Tuilleries on 45 Hwy) that features home decor, personal items and now fashion.

I do hope to see you. There will be more news coming soon about some upcoming fall shows in other cities.

Upcoming shows - New charms

Tomorrow morning heading out for a great show in Denver with the Rocky Mountain Bead Society. Once we get back home we start on some great new charms thanks to a friend named Neil. Ladies, if you need something sassy to wear then new charms are going to be a hit. I hope to have some at Bead Blast in Overland Park on May 2 & 3.

I will send out more information about a show at the Overland Park Convention Center on May 30th. It will be a great show. Lots of exhibitors and I will have new charms to show with Bliss at La-De-Da. Look for more details.

Stay charming!

Round Charms

I am mailing the yummiest round charm to The Persimmon Tree in Ozark, Mo. on March 31. I just love making them and I think they will be just a real eye catcher. Marilyn Barnes is the nicest lady that owns The Persimmon Tree.

Spring 2009

Welcome to Two Charming Chix blog site. I will use this site to keep charmers informed about upcoming events, charms and shops that might be of interest. I am excited to let you know that Poppy Gallery in Columbia, Mo. is now carrying Two Charming Chix on their website. Poppy is just a great gallery to frequent and I have been fortunate enough for the past year to work with them. I was honored to have them add the charms to their website.

This weekend I will be exhibiting at a bead show in Omaha (Saturday, April 4th).

I have some great new creations available, a nice spring initial line that is very sweet, very clean looking. Some new round glass from Germany I am in love with and a whole line of cowgirl charms.

I will post from time to time to let you know when holiday charms are available. Easter & Mother's Day charms are available in the shops or contact me.

Have a charming day,
