Well I have lots of news this morning. While I am supposed to be on vacation I have actually been working on things I have just not had time for this past year. I have started a new Etsy store and while there is not much listed right now I will be adding to this as the next couple of weeks goes by. You can see more pictures of the above bracelet by stopping into the store. I will be making a link shortly but for now just click here to get there.
I have also been updating my website with lots of new bracelets and a few sets of beads so use the link to the left and wonder around there for a bit. I will also be updating this often in the next couple of weeks.

Hi I made it home again and while it was fun seeing everyone at all the shows I am so glad to have the season over. MY body was ready for it two weeks ago. :-) I am taking tomorrow totally off HA! that will never happen but after that I promise to find some pictures for you.

What no pictures again! Well sorry about that but it has been one of those very busy weeks once again and I have to leave very early in the morning tomorrow to go to Des Moines IA for the Treasures Beads show. If you are any where close you can come and look at my beads in person besides if you do that you get to touch them. Is that just not so much more fun than just looking at a picture.

Hi yesterday as I was laying on my back on the deck talking on the phone. (We have such lousy cell service here you have to go outside to get a signal.) I was staring up and the sky was so blue and the trees were such a beautiful yellow and I started thinking about how the last few trips I have made I have seen such lovely scenes that I wish I had my camera so I could show other people. Any way I ended up going in and getting the camera so that you could see what I saw. I could never make a bead with the strength of colors that I was seeing here in nature. Sure wish I could.

Lovely Monday morning to all! I drove home from the Twin Cities last night where I was at the Bead Bazaar and since I did not get in until 1:00 am my lovely husband took my son to school and let me sleep in. Probably will not get to make beads today as there are so many chores to catch up on but I will be thinking of things for tomorrow so that there will be something new for next weekends show in Des Moines. Have a great day! We are finally having some sun. Yeah!

My goodness an entire week with out a picture oh so sorry! I have been busy even if it does not look like it. I had to get ready to go back out of town again this weekend. I am off to Minneapolis for the Twin Cities Bead Bazaar. If you have never been and are in the area come on out. I did this show in February when we got a wonderful blizzard so a little rain should not stop us from having a good time. Here is the web site for directions if you need them.

Now on to the pictures. These are just a few of the new spiky things I got made. Worked on lots of different colors.
And these are some new etched beads. I had two people ask me for snow flakes at the show in Marshalltown and so I thought I would make some up before Des Moines in a week.

Oops! forgot I wanted to add Regina's site too so you should check out both the new sites that I have added.
Hi! I just got in a couple of hours ago from Marshalltown and the bead show there. There was lots of email when I got here and one from a friend Lori who has started a new blog. I have posted a link in my links box you might want to check it out.

I am off again tomorrow so I thought I would show you some of the new nuggets that I made this week to take with me to the bead show in Marshalltown, IA. I was just playing around and decide to make some twisties and then I remembered some that my friend Jodie had made and sent to me so the two left most beads use the twisties she made for me. They had some reactive glass in them so they did all sorts of fun things.

If you are any where near Marshalltown, IA this weekend come and see them for yourself. The show does not have a web site that I know of any more but it is at the Best Western right off the main highway and is open Friday evening and during the day on Saturday.

Hi I am back from Lincoln. It was a long weekend because of all the driving but I had so much fun. I got to see my friend Jodie's grand baby and go to the gem show in Omaha with my friend Mary and eat lots of good food with friends and of course see all the friends that came out to the bead show. I get to go off to Marshalltown Iowa and get to see more friends over that way next weekend so I had best get out to the barn and make more beads. Here are some that I made last week and some of you might have seen already in person but I liked them I think they look very earthy.

The last couple of sets to make your mouth water and make you want to see what all I have made that I have not taken pictures of before I leave for Lincoln tomorrow morning. I leave out early so if you need more information on how to get to the show check here.

Hi, I was trying out a new color combination and I really think the brick red goes really well with the black. What do you think?

For those of you who think all I ever do is make beads. It is pretty true but in the fall I start going every morning to get a van load of wood from the dump. Once I fill the van and get it unloaded I am pretty tired so I go make beads and leave the next load for the next day. This is what I have brought home so far and Jeff still has to cut and split it. Some of those logs in the front are over 100 pounds each and I know because I brought home 5 of them in one load and it was 560 pounds. And now what is black and white and red all over.....................

Why beads of course. And yes I was thinking Husker colors when I made the red and white ones. Had to have at least one set when I go to Lincoln this weekend.
