Quick Blurb

Welcome to the bio page! Thanks for stopping by. Send me a note if you have any questions or just to comment and say hi!


We are major desert rats. We go camping and riding about 10 times a year. I have a rhino and my hubby runs a quad, we load them into a toy hauler so we can camp in luxury! Love it! We are big hockey and football people, go Red Wings and Chargers.

Skills and Techniques

I have been working and learning all about photography for years. I have gone from shooting large format images in a studio and developing pictures in a dark room to working in a 1 hr lab to working side by side with professional photographers and digitally touching up and laying up photos in Photoshop. Now my creativity have turned to my beading but I still take pictures every chance I get. I haven't done any painting or drawing in years but I have my art hanging all over my house as well.

Get to Know

Laura! I am 40 yrs old, living in Las Vegas Nevada with my awesome hubby and my lovable cat. I have always been creative, art, photography, Photoshop and now beading and paper crafts. I have a small family and no kids. I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2007 so I have been in a daily fight with my own body. I caused me to quit going to school (JR college for the 3rd time in my life) and work is an unimaginable, scary proposition. The beading has really helped, its my therapy. I have developed a lot of patience and tolerance through beading while in pain and being tired. It helps take my mind off of things. I am going to be selling my Lupus awareness bracelets at this years Step up for Lupus walk, I am so honored. Aside from the beading and my other hobbies(camping and running my toys in the dunes of southern Nevada), I run my home and take care of my husband and I love that even though it is a full time job in its own. I love football and hockey and I am addicted to Ebay and hunting for unique and bargain beading supplies! I opened a supply store here on ArtFire in Jan of 2011, since buying in bulk gives me a lot of extra beads. Please stop by my own web page as well and read my new blog and visit my other shops. All the links are below.

The ArtFire store is now closed, I just didnt have the time to dedicate to both shops and Etsy has always done well for me. Thanks for stopping by and reading about me. I answer email 7 days a week and I ship in 24 hrs Monday - Saturday! Find me on Facebook and LIKE my page for a chance to win free jewelry!
