Michigan International Women's Show just days away!

Why not plan a day of fun and excitement by attending the 18th annual Michigan International Women’s Show at Suburban Collection Showplace May 2-5?

Meet Sean Lowe from ABC’s romance reality series “The Bachelor,” and then spend hours shopping, seeing a variety of demonstrations from new makeup trends for Spring 2013 to cooking with fresh ingredients.

Look for yours truly at 3 p.m. Friday on “The Balancing Act Stage” where I’ll demonstrate how to make a simple knotted (chunky) bead necklace.

If you’d like a chance at winning a pair of tickets to the show, just email me here at and tell me a little about your crafting skills and include a photo of a recent project. Put the words “Women’s Show” in the subject line, and REMEMBER to include your name and address.

Show hours are 10 a.m.-8 pm. Thursday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday.

Suburban Collection Showplace is at 46100 Grand River Ave. in Novi.

See you there!
