I have been a happy, busy camper!
Making bracelets and bangles and selling them through word of mouth or through Facebook friends.
My ETSY account is pretty and has 32 items right now, but they are just window dressing right now.
With all the competition online for handmade jewelry, I feel like my shop is a needle in the haystack.
Not complaining...when I post something on etsy to sell, I share it with my Facebook friends and it gets noticed and ordered, or they will custom order something else, they send a check and then I mail it out.
So I guess it's a win, win, because bottom line is...sales!
I love working with wire and designing new and fun pieces to wear.
Here are a few more things I have been making.

Happy New Year! 2014

December was quite eventful for me.

On my birthday, December 5th, during dinner, I started feeling weird...long story short, went to the emergency room, nine hours later admitted and spent the next 12 days there. I had the surgery I needed for the parathyroid growth (a nickle size tumor on the gland) removed. 

I'm home now, recovering and waiting to feel good again now that the problem has been removed from my body!

Hoping to have my creative side return and get back to living!

More to come :)

November 2013

Welcome back to me!
It's been way to long since I wrote anything and would like to start posting again as soon as I have some new and interesting things to write about.
I have to go through some medical things and then "I'll be back!"
So for now...if you are reading this...please keep me in your prayers :) Thanks!

November 2011

As of today, I am totally freelance...I am not connected to any stores, groups, organizations or people (except my family). It's OK for now, but I just don't know what direction God wants me to go, so I am staying put...that's it!

back to blogging...and what I've been up to

pyramid boxes...I've been making them for at least 12 years and they come in every size (these are extra large) and so many colors.
more info below :)

OK... we have a new addition to our family:

My daughter, Maria and her husband, Robert had their first children on November 17, 2010. This is our #11 grandbaby and we are totally in love with him! See pic below:

I've been beading again, big time! Teaching classes at Michaels in Ft. Lauderdale, getting ready for a craft show in December and just daily life has kept me quite focused.

These dragonflies below were a special order...

paper flowers everywhere!!!

beaded spider! this one is hanging in Maria's car

my sample board at Michaels
note: paper flowers around the corners

and here he is Robert Joseph Yount: "Robbie"

that's all for now...

facebook & other things

I never thought I would enjoy being on facebook and now I can't stay off of it!
Reconnecting with my old high school friends, seeing pictures of them now, with their families and sharing memories has been great.
Also, preparing for surgery, which may take a couple of months.
Swimming everyday and eating healthy foods. I feel pretty good and want to get even better.
Made some beaded earrings, a necklace and cell phone charms.

That's it...

major decision...

Eleven months ago I had knee replacement surgery on my right knee and now, for the first time, I uttered the words to my doc...let's do the other! wow...I shocked myself & Rico.
The pain has been unbearable in the left and with the right feeling pretty good, and since arthritis never gets better on its own...what else can I do?
Not sure of the date yet, but hopefully in a month or so.
More news to follow!

party on paper niche...

The Paper Niche (Tammy & Rhonda) really know how to throw a party!
This was a "surprise" brunch for Barbie (going to school full time) and Kelley (having a baby & leaving the Niche) at Charley's Crab in Ft. Lauderdale on the Intracoastal waterway.
Check the background in the pictures.
They came out a little dark because of the glare from the water, but believe me, everyone
was smiling and laughing the entire time. We had lobster & crab omelets, fruit & potatoes, and let's not forget the Bloody Mary's & Mimosa's.
Thanks girls (T & R) and good luck to K & B in their adventures.
