I've been a busy beadmaker...

New wheelie necklaces available at Seagrass Gallery on Camano Island.

"A Rose Is A Rose" petit bicone pendant on chain also available at Seagrass Gallery.

The last few days have been very productive beadwise, (is that a word?). I've made tons of new pieces for Seagrass Gallery. My jewelry case there was starting to look a little depleted. Now it's time to start thinking about the outdoor shows I have coming up. I better step up the pace a bit.

Speaking of snow, I'm so over it, but the temperature is climbing today and it's starting to melt. Yay! Please hurry spring!

A Rose Is A Rose

"A Rose Is A Rose" bracelet.

Pink roses for a sunny but frigid Friday. 
I've been cooped up in the house all week. Time to get out and mingle with friends. Maybe I'll see you at Norm's Place. ;-)
Have a super weekend!

Say NO to Snow!

"Vista" Bracelet available in my Etsy shop.

Winter is still holding on. Everett, the city where Norm's Place, (our bar and grill), is located had a couple inches of snow this morning and the weatherman says more tomorrow. Just say "NO" to snow I say!
Snow... after a beautiful weekend of sunshine. Yep, Saturday and Sunday we were able to go outside and work in the yard. It was blissful and I'm so happy to be caught up with some of those outdoor chores leftover from the fall. We still had sad looking cornstalks in the vegetable garden and rotting geraniums in the flower pots. Our fall of 2010 was spent working on getting the bar ready to open, so there wasn't any time for yard tidying back when it should have been done. We are almost ready to plant when spring finally shows up.

Spring Bling!

Just a quick post to share my latest pieces. "Pink Celebrity" in my Etsy shop soon.
New washer and dryer tomorrow. I'll be catching up on the laundry this weekend. I hope you have something much more exciting planned....

Hurry spring!

Tropic Canna

I have a nagging case of SPRING FEVER. Happens every year at this time and especially when the sun makes an appearance. February in the Pacific Northwest can be, and usually is, very wet, cold, and dreary and I know this year I should consider myself lucky that we haven't had the extreme weather conditions experienced by folks in other areas of the country, but still, I'm just sooo ready for spring. It's beautiful and sunny today. I should be working in my yard but I'm making jewelry instead. New things for Etsy and Seagrass Gallery.

Feelin' a bit shakey...

"Color Hungry" 33 inch Necklace

The flu has kicked my butt this week! It must have caught me in a weak moment because I can't remember the last time I was sick with even a cold. I'm a tough ole bird but today I'm ready to cry UNCLE!
After 4 days of almost complete bedrest I got up this morning and took a shower, (makeup and everything today), then made a few beads for orders and now after only a couple hours of that I think I need a nice long nap....and maybe an asprin-Nyquil cocktail beforehand. Oy! I hope I remember this next year when it's flu shot time. I'll be first in line!
