May 31, 2010

Summer weather is hear, and I'm lovin it! Of course, making beads can get a bit hot at times, as my "studio" is in the garage. I have a fan that helps. I spent the weekend doing some ruthless gardening. With the rain we've had, the weeds can take over in no time at all.

May 23, 2010

What a beautiful weekend we are having! Yesterday started out with some rain (we made it home from our 9 mile run just before a downpour), but by afternoon, the sun was shining, the yards dried up, and the temperature just right for enjoying the outside. Today was also beautiful!

I'm going on a "little" vacation to see a friend of mine - she's got some fun things planned for us - shopping - antiqueing - socializing - so I've listed a couple things on my Etsy site tonight, as I won't be around for the next two days. Anything sold will be mailed first thing Thursday morning.

Happy Victoria day to all.

May 14, 2010

I had the most exciting time on Wed night. The local sorority invited me to demonstrate my jewelry. I didn't want to take a torch to the Gallery, so made some examples, took some pictures and had an informal talk about making lampwork beads and jewelry. All the ladies seemed interested, interested enough to buy some of my finished earrings, bracelets, and pendants. Thank you ladies for making me feel welcome. Any time you'd like to do it again, please let me know.

A break in the weather today - too nice to stay inside. I've been outside weeding and trimming. With all the rain we've had, everything is just growing wild. Wonder if it's too early to put out tomato plants?
