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!

Yesterday I spent the day catching up! It is amazing to me how quickly
you can fall behind! I think I am just about ready for a vacation! Ya,
RIGHT?!?! That would just mean more 'catch up' when we get back!!!

you know what, I AM on vacation - I don't think I really can complain!!
Yesterday I was able to make a few more things from my Grandmothers
Stash - I'll list them later in the week. For today, the newest listing

What a weekend!! Oh my it was so busy!! I has a Day Camp at the
American Red Cross. 20 tweens and teens received training on
Babysitting, First Aid and CPR. Talk about a wonderful was to teach
your child about life, babysitting and growing up! These young adults
are now trained and ready to take on the world - at least the world of
babysitting!! P.S. My daughter, Aye, was one of those that went to the
camp and passes!! You 'GO GIRL'!!
I was also able to work on some beadwork.... I can't wait to get a
chance to list it later this week. I did manage to get one photographed
and listed this morning - it is a ... » Read More

Oh my goodness, this has been such a busy week! My little charms for the iPhone and other Smart Phones
have taken off like crazy!! I am so amazed at how well they are
selling!! I am already on my next order of plugs!!! Even when I am out
people see the one I have on my phone - Purple and Dragonflies - and
they ask me about them. I guess adding 'BLING' to your phone is back in
I have also been busy promoting the wonderful review and give-a-way from Mom Does Reviews. I am so glad that she liked the bracelet I made for her:

Yesterday was yet another busy day, but that is OK, it was less 'wild'!!
I don't mind busy, I don't mind hectic, but I really do like my
schedule!! I know that means I have an 'A type' personality....well,
some people call it something else, but we'll go with 'A type', ok??!!!
But, I did manage to get something new listed for today - and it is
another one from my Grandmother's Stash!! What do you think? I just
love it! ALL the beads are from her stash....oh, thank you Grandma!!

This has been a 'whirl wind' week so far. Did you see all the new
things yesterday? Oh, well, there is more!! I have started a
partnership with Many Horses.

been GREAT communication, but the the real bonus, the friendly people!
Thank you so very much for making this so wonderful!

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

For those of you that follow me
regularly you know all about my Grandmother's Stash that I received from
my mom after my Grandmother's passing around Christmas time last year.
I have yet to take photos of EVERYTHING, but I have been going through
the TEN, yes, I said TEN boxes of STASH that I received! I want to say a
heartfelt THANK YOU to not only my Grandmother for wanting me to have
it and for my mother who has taken the time to pack and send it all to
The three of us - a couple of Chistma's a go!
My Mother and Grandmother

my Grandmother's Stash I have such great memories of her.... » Read More
It is funny how all throughout the week
I throw these little 'mini' tantrums around the house and then when it
comes time to write about a tantrum I can't think of anything to write
about! I have chosen one of you today though, it is relevant to many
of my fellow crafters/artisans and home run business owners.
When someone asks me what I do - I
have come to say "I run my own company". This has come from many
years of saying "I am a work from home mom" which got me that little 'I
understand nod'. Until my son was born over 7 years ago I worked in
Corporate America. I was very active, had a great job and a very l... » 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
