Today is one of those days that I get to stay home and bead most of the
day - so, for me, almost perfect! I have been working on such a variety
of things lately, from simple Anklets to larger beadwoven pieces. I
think that the variety keeps me going too!
Today I get to show off this wonderful necklace set that I made from my
Grandmother's Stash. Even as I look at this one I am amazed at how
perfectly I was able to match everything.... very eclectic!

Oh my goodness!! If you follow me regularly you'll notice that there
wasn't a Terrific Tuesday post yesterday. I had meant for there to be,
but 'life gets in the way'! I am not sure how everything got away from
me, but it did!! Oh well, that just means that I have more to tell you
about today, and OH BOY, do I have a LOT to tell you about!!
First, let me show off this amazing review I received from Mom Does Reviews. When she contacted me about having her do a review the first thing I looked at was her 'numbers'. Now, for any of you (us)
that have worked on our marketing together....this is amazing! Her
numbers are ... » Read More

So I promised I would show off more photos from our Easter weekend... here we go!
These are the beautiful flowers that my wonderful Hubby got me... yes, they are a few days old, but they are still BEAUTIFUL!!
And here is my newest creation.
This is another one from my Grandmothers Stash..... I have to say, it is
so inspirational to look through some of her stash. There are so many
beautiful colors and designs. This one was a broken pin that is very
old. I really don't know the exact age, but by the design and detail
you can tell it is probably 40+ years old. I ... » Read More

So yesterday I think that I actually got caught up.
I know that I didn't get any help from our dog, Ziggy...
My daughter took these photos.
They were after I folded and put UP the blankets that we use on the
couch. I guess he wasn't too happy that we took away his 'spot'!!
I was able to finish my entry to the CreationsColorChallengeGroup.
The colors this time were GREEN and PURPLE. I have done several things
in these colors, but not recently. So, here it is, what do you think?

Oh my, it has been a busy week. I
know, I know, it is only Wednesday, but for me the week and weekend
sometimes blur! This is one of those 'sometimes'!! I still had a
little time last night to bead... just enough to keep my sanity! Here is
my newest creation... what do you think??
For the Love of Purple Peace Necklace Set
Although I make jewelry for my
daughter, many of you know she LOVES peace signs, I have had to hide
this one from her!!! Oh ya, did I mention that Purple is also her
favorite color? Don't tell her... OK? Someone buy it before she sees
it.... please!! I

Many of you saw the photo of my little
Monster on my fan page last night, but for those of you who didn't, here
is Monster and his black eye!
YEP, my wonderful kids were
playing outside and Aye was sitting on a concrete wall when she started
to slip.....then when she swung her foot out to save herself (in cowboy
boots - of course).... Monster's face happened to be in the way!! Here
it is, the result! I have to tell you that 2012 has not been very nice
to our family yet.... let's get this NEW YEAR under the way the RIGHT
On a good note I was able to list another new creat... » Read More
I know, I know, I have shown off my
little Monster enough, but I just can't help but to show you a couple
more! Although yesterday was his birthday his party will not be until
Saturday. We allowed him to open ONE of his presents - from Mom and Dad
- so that his day was special.
Yes, it is a DS game - Lego Star
Wars to be exact! It is one that he had wanted since before he even had
a DS!! As you can see, he has been perfecting his charm and his
hearts!! Did I tell you that his 3 invites for school friends were to
GIRLS... oh no, not yet!!!!

As things really take off this week
into the New Year I am reminded at how lucky I am to have some of the
most wonderful friends. I have three close friends that each, in their
own way, support and love me. It is because I have this love and
friendship in so many different ways that I can continue to do my
kreations day after day. They all bring such difference of opinions to
each topic, yet somehow we always seem to be able to meet in the
I thought I would start the New Year off right and give each of them their due.

OK, I am just about at the limit of
crazy this month! Yesterday just about topped off my week so far! I was
sitting in quiet and piece when I got a call from Aye that Monster had
gotten hurt. I rushed down to the park (about a block away) and find
him with a lump on his head and dirt covering his face! Yep, he tried
to jump OVER a bench and didn't make it!So as he missed, hit the back and then flipped over onto the ground. A quick trip to Solantic walk-in urgent care centers (who are starting to recognize us) and we found out that he has a moderate concussion!
So then it was back home we went!

What a wonderful morning it is. For
some reason (we wont explore it to much - it might jinx it) I woke up
with a new lease on life! I am not sure if someone 'spiked' my morning
bottle of water, or what happened, but I am here, I am happy and life
just feels REALLY good today! Maybe it is because I actually got to
bead yesterday! For several days I have been just TOO busy to bead and
that always ways on me.
Do you find that your craft/art
is what gets you by? Do you do the design or work out of necessity for
your sanity as much as for the joy of it? I guess I do. I know that
physically my hands get soar and swell ... » Read More
