BayCon and Westercon 2010 Photos

I've been to three conventions so far this year - one more to go for sure, and one possible. I've been approved for LosCon again, over Thanksgiving weekend and may perhaps apply for Conjecture in San Diego, held in the beginning of October. Doing Baycon at the end of May and Westercon at the end of June was a bit stressful, so I'm giving it a lot of thought. I've been busy with family stuff, too - you'll want to see the special pictures at the end of the post to know exactly what I mean...

These first pictures are from BayCon - my dear husband came by around lunch time to give me a chance to stretch and grab a bite to eat, but otherwise I couldn't have done it without my wonderful neighbors, especially Tammie from Handee Books (who took the picture of me). Baycon was great this year - I got into the dealer's room and I made a lot of sales - it was very worthwhile.

These next ones are from Westercon - the last three are customers posing with their new jewelry. I finally got a banner so people know who I am and what I'm selling! I bought two, but forgot them, so my fabulous husband shipped one of the overnight to the hotel. Next convention I hope I don't forget them! This was my first Westercon - I didn't do as well there but I had a great time - my dad came and helped me set up and sat with me all 4 days, too! I really enjoyed it. Next year's is in San Jose so I hope I get accepted again - it will be great to be close to home (and save on gas money!):

And now for the big announcement - congratulations to Matthew (my son) and Amanda who got married on June 29th!

Thank you Davinia! It's going to be a slow come-back for me as I still have a number of things coming up this summer that distract me including a trip to North Carolina to see my son off on his deployment.

Thank you Willow Walker! Nothing to worry about - just going through a dry spell and very busy with other stuff. I'm looking forward to getting my act back together!
