Still Doing My Jewelry

Still doing my Jewelry. Sales are down this year, but I still love doing this.

Vegas Trip

Last Year the girls and I did a trip to Vegas to celebrate our birthdays. This is a picture of the flowers taken at one of the Casinos.

I Lost My Blog

I finally found my info, password, etc. I thought I was going to have to start a new blog. It has been so long. Did a cruise late September last year. This is a picture taken in France near the French Rivera. We also did Barcelona and Italy.

On A Roll.........

The first is a wonderful Raku piece I did with the raku purchased from XAZ Bead company.
I love working with found objects (although I am picky about what objects) and I made one focal out of an old key-hole. And there is one additional piece of Raku that I love and I got it from Olivia Dowdy of Odd Designs Pottery & Raku in North Carolina. Enjoy


It's been a long time since I posted anything, but as I said before, I don't feel I'm really good at this type of thing.

Anyway, had a great holiday season and a Birthday in January. I'm really getting old.

Have been re-doing my master bath, but have had time to make a few new jewelry pieces.

My best friend Bette and I along with three other girls we went to High School with are going to Vegas next month because one of them will be having a mile-stone birthday. The rest of us will too, but only later in the year. Looking forward to it.

Happy Gobble Gobble Day!

Wanting to Wish Everyone a Happy Holiday. It is Wed. November 21st and I only have to work a few hours today. My boss is really pretty good, said I could leave around 11:00 after my foot doctors appointment. I would post a picture, but have nothing significant. I made some new jewelry last week as I was getting ready for a small craft show at one of the housing/golf clubs here and I sold one of the new pieces and have not taken pictures of the others. I did pretty well at the show, however, I sold mostly some inexpensive Christmas earings I have. But I must say, if you sell enough it adds to the checking account. That's all for now. Oh, hell, I'm going to post a picture anyway. I love this picture of the fish!

Week-end of Fun Over

Well, Diane and I had a great time while she was here. We went to 4 craft shows Saturday, plus a bead show at Gwinette Arena. It was really fun. Since I never really travel outside of my comfort zone, it was a great challenge to find some of the areas where the shows were. We had to turn around a couple of times, but we got some nice things for Christmas and shopped til we dropped. Diane came with one bag and left with three...

Now it's time to get down to the real holiday stuff. I have a small craft show I will participate in Saturday for just 1/2 day, but I am NOT ready, and have a lot to do the remainder of the week.

This is a great colorful picture of a "Surf Board" graveyard (where the damaged ones go). It was taken on the Northshore of Honolulu.

I wanted to add another piece of jewelry I did. Although I did this last year, I really love the colors and textures of the piece.
