I just discovered a feature on my wonderful auction management software Auctionsage which is going to save me a lot of time. Doing a dance of delight.

Because I had a driving lesson at the magic hour, I wasn't able to register on the dot of Noon, EST, and missed out on getting into Michael Barley's beadmaking class at Bead and Button this year. They don't keep a waitlist for regular classes, when I called to ask the very nice lady I talked to just chuckled, and said the first time they had done so had been a bit...stressful. I can imagine. Over 600 classes and thousands of frenzied bead lovers, I don't blame them.

I did get into other classes though. I'm going to take "Uncommon Objects in Glass Casting", and "Bezel Setting" , and Kristina Logan's "Dot Clinic".

I will be carefully saving my pennies, that's for sure. I really, really hope that classes will sell well, so that the instructors can keep on doing this.

I just checked on my classes - I thought well, I would check - and to my great delight I actually have students!!!!! 5 in fact! I am thrilled and I can't wait to spend some time with you at Bead And Button again this year.

That's fantastic Amy!!! I'm so glad. We will have so much fun, and we'll have to go to that Cuban restaurant again!
