Good morning! It is a lovely rainy and gray day here. Just the thing we need is moisture but did it have to come on my Open House weekend. Had a lovely day yesterday got to visit with some friends and play with beads. Just my kind of day. I have some ideas I want to try out today so will be in the barn making beads.

Well I have been busy getting ready for my Studio Open House tomorrow. If you are close to Huron SD and not afraid of getting wet from the rain come on by. I will try to find some new pictures the first of the week.

Well good evening. I have been adding some earrings to the web site. They are some of the red hat earrings I made a little while back. We had a lovely day cool but such nice sunny weather. I still do not know weather or not the lilacs will make it. But the apple trees seem to be okay and are continuing to puff out.

Oh how I do love the sun. I was going to post yesterday about our wonderful snowy weather but the server was down and now today it is lovely even if it is a bit cold out. I got some good pictures of my new bracelet that I finished up last night. It has some new beads in it just very simple shapes in transparent colors. Of course I am stuck on the charm bracelet style right now so it had to follow suit. A really good friend just called these jewels and I think that suits them so well I had to tell everyone these beads will be called that from now on. Will have to get some up on the web site soon.

Well we have finally had a sunny day and as promised I just fixed the pictures I will add them to the web site soon.

Well I have been promising pictures for a week. It has been way too gray but today we got a tiny bit of sun. I am afraid they are a bit soft focus so I will do them again in a day or two but for now you can get the idea of the new bracelets. Enjoy!

Well it got cold again here and rainy and that is how it is supposed to stay for a while. I did not get any new pictures to put here but I have been working on the new web site. the address is and the My Website button will get you there. I have also linked the web site to here through the journal button so you can get back and forth between the sites. Hope everyone is having a good day and enjoy the eye candy on the web site.

Well hello and Happy Easter! It has been anouther lovely gray day today so no pictures once again. Maybe tomorrow as I finished anouther bracelet for your enjoyment. Brandon and I did get a lot of work done on the web site this afternoon and might even get it on line to some extent tomorrow. Course since I have not made beads in three days I think I should do some of that as well. Hope everyone enjoyed the day.

Well hello again! Anouther day with no pictures. We had a very gray and rainy day today with some lovely hail this afternoon. I did not even get a bead made as I am still trying to figure out my new web site software. I have about decided I can start work on it tomorrow but may have Brandon do the initial linking and layout as it will be much faster. He sort of already knows how it all works. I did finish a new braclet yesterday and will try to get a picture for your enjoyment soon. Wish some sun on us.

Hope you all have a Happy Easter!

Hi! Thought I would show you my new Wild Barnacle beads today. The little rings look like barnacle to me that have been out having a very colorful party. Oh well I have never been good at figuring out what to call my beads.

Hello did you think I had disappeared? Well no just trying to figure out my new expensive website software. I am trying to totally redo my main website and I do not understand the software at all so I have been on line much of the last two days trying to read the training information. Let me tell you it is not helping at all. Guess I had better get back too it. Have a great day.

Well today was spent in the yard trying to clean up all the limbs from our storm last November. We had a burn pile that was as big as the truck and have had way too much wind and bad weather to get it taken care of before now. Today was nice and not too windy so it was an all day affair. So no beads today but I did take a picture of the new black and white charm bracelet that I finished last night. Enjoy.

Hi there! I have been making beads and playing with a new bracelet that is not done but I thought you would like to see what I finished last night. The parts have been in a baggy for a year with half a plan and I started working on the beaded beads last week. I will try to finish the bracelet for tomorrow or the next day. Have a great weekend.

Ah! I promised a picture and have one although it may not be the best as it has done nothing but rain here today. I could not even go make beads for a while as the lighting was so bad the power kept popping on and off. Have a few in the kiln now though and am getting ready to work on a new bracelet.

The picture is of a little pair of earrings I made to go with the blue and purple pendant for my Aunt Liz. I think they came out really cute.

Hi! Today has been spent trying to get Brandon's car fixed after having it die on the way to school yesterday, and making a few beads. The kid said it really scared him when it died in the middle of an intersection and I got to thinking about the fact that other than the accident we had a few years ago he has never been in the car when there was a problem. The gas filter was clogged so it was not a huge fix just a small one.

Any way there are no pictures today but I will really try to find some fun thing to show you tomorrow.

Hi! I tried to post earlier and the picture uploader would not work. These are a couple of pendants I made the other day. Of course I sold the pink one at the Omaha show. But I really like them so I thought I would show you.
