Acrylic Flowers, Kumihimo and Wire Lace, oh my!

Did anyone else local go to the Pasadena Bead & Design Show today? Love that show. Too bad it's only twice a year. Blew way too much money, as usual, even tho I was more restrained this time. I was so excited to see that the little, acrylic flowers that were popular in the 80s are back. Picked up some really pretty ones. And some Wire Lace for some focal beads.
Probably my most exciting buy was a Kumihimo Disk kit. Does anyone do Kumihimo? Do you have any ideas/tips/tricks to share? I think that and the wire lace and all the yarns I've been hunting and gathering lately will solve my dilemmas of what to use to hang my beaded bottles off of. So, if anyone else went, what did they get? What shows do you haunt near you? I've never been to a bead show outside California and I'm curious as to what's out there.
