Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. I took a much-needed break from the blogosphere, but I'm back - happy and, hopefully healthy!
What a busy summer I had, making stuff for my Etsy shops, selling at shows, teaching classes, working and travelling for my high-tech job, and taking care of my declining mom who has Alzheimer's. Phew!
I signed up for the Bead Journal Project, and only made it through April. I signed up for a creative drawing class and didn't get through that either. I think I'm going to have to stop signing up for things until my life calms down a bit (hmmm... maybe that will be in my NEXT life.). However, I DID sign up for a project that has me really excited. See that new logo on the right side of my blog page? It's the Best Little Bead Box project to benefit the Beads of Courage program. You can read the inaugural post HERE to find out exactly what this project is. Then follow along on the Best Little Bead Box Blog -or- follow along on Facebook - to see what leaves the box and what's being added. Then stay tuned to find out how you can win win win! It's going to be a dream stash, for sure!
Here's a preview of what I'm going to put in the box.
This doesn't include any of my lampwork - that will be a surprise until I actually make it this weekend. And I haven't finished raiding my own stash yet. When it's my turn to fill the box, the Best Little Bead Box Blog will have much better pix of my additions to the treasure chest!
And now I'm heading back to tech land. It's nice to be back here chatting with you folks! And a big THANK YOU to all of you who came to see me at the ISGB Bead Bazaar in Rochester, NY as well as those of you who cheered me up at B.A.B.E.! Soon I'll be adding more fiber to my diet... ah, I mean, my Etsy shop. Stick with me, people!
Now go have yourselves a happy and creative day!
