>Summer Vacation Plan

>

Those who have been reading my blog for the past couple of years know that I like to travel in search of beads! In the past 3 years, I have visited England, France, Germany, Czech Republic, & Italy, and I am officially about to add one more to the list! Russia! 

In a couple of weeks, I will be going to visit my longtime blogger friend, Tanya. Some of you know her as the owner of Greenbird.ru, an online bead supplier in Moscow! Tanya & I became friends when she interviewed me for a feature on her website. She is also the reason my beadwork got published in Russia’s РУЧНАЯ РАБОТА (Handmade Magazine)! I am a bit nervous because I really can’t speak any Russian, but despite that, I am very excited! I can’t wait to see Red Square, Kremlin, Lenin’s Mausoleum, Bolshoi Theatre, St. Basil’s Cathedral, and Tretyakov Gallery. I also hope to visit St. Petersburg for a few days. I would also like to do a little research regarding Russian beadwork/ bead artists. If I learn of any bead shops or artist galleries featuring beadwork, I will try to visit them! If you have ever been to Russia, and have any travel tips and/or suggestions, please leave a comment!😀


Since I only have a couple weeks before my trip, I have decided to wait until I return to start my next big piece. I am still deciding what I want to do- a nature painting, a classic car, a space shuttle, or a NYC scene… Right now, I am leaning towards doing a NYC scene, but also think that a space shuttle would be appropriate, as well! 
What do you think?

  1. >How exciting!!!!!!!! why did I not think of YOU when desperately searching for jet teardrop beads. I have had the horrible time trying to find any. Have a SUPER trip. Now I am off to catch up with your blog. It's been toooooooooo long.

  2. >How exciting!!! You are going to have a fantastic time…so much to see and do. How fun to visit your friend Tanya also!Hmmm, NYC sounds pretty great to me too, but whatever you decide to go with will be fantastic! I totally concur…I think you will be inspired to bead something Russian soon too.🙂

  3. >I think you are right, Barbara! I may do that! NYC has also inspired me, too since I went there last year, and I will be returning there in September… Guess I will work on something small in the meantime!😀

  4. >I think you should wait and see what inspires you on your trip. Because I bet that something in Russia will speak to you and you will have to bead it.
