Ready for Spring Tulips


I am so ready for spring to arrive in Kansas. We had been fooled by the weather earlier, green color started coming out, trees were budding and today is SNOW.

I am begging Kanss to PLEASE take your bipolar meds and get back on track.

Learning All the Time

I have learned a lot lately and want to thank all those wonderful and talented artist who offer their expertise via their tutorials. I wouldn't even know where to begin putting something like that together. I am sure glad that others have the talent, expertise and are willing to share with others.

Yes, I am gushing over these individuals. Through their efforts, I have been able to transform from just stringing beads on a wire to feeling comfortable making rings (thank you Bobbi). I have been totally amazed and in awe of the work they produce.

I only hope to be able to get near their level one day.

Thank you all who have the creativity and willingness to share with others. You are my inspiration.

Giving this a shot

All of this blogging, twitter, etc is a new experience for me. Computers have always been necessary for my work, Word Processing, databases, etc. of the daily grind. However, about a year and a half a go, a friend and I started making magnetic bracelets. After scoffing at others and their magnets for years, I finally had to eat my words (yuk). I found they really did help with my arthritis. Then the beading and jewelry bug hit me hard. I started expanding from just the basic magnetic bracelets, to earrings, necklaces, rings, etc. I have really enjoyed this avenue of creativity. However, I am so envious of all those that I have admired their wire work and only wish I can get half as good as they are.

My poor husband has to endure all of my "see what I made this time". He really has been good natured about it all. Hasn't complained too much when he steps on a piece of errant wire embedded in the carpet.

I ask you all to bear with me and I learn about this new blogging process. Thank you and check back often. Hopefully I won't bore you too much.
