April Fools?

I can’t believe we are 1/3 of the way through the year.  April? I scarcely remember January. I have posted nothing at all this year (obviously), not because I have nothing to say, but because I have been doing so much.  Which for me is great, and for the blog…not so great.  

I’m going to start my first post of the year with something I did this past weekend, on April fools day no less.  I took a bead making class at the Glass Craft Expo that comes here to Las Vegas once a year. The class was about working specifically with silver glass.  It was fun, I learned a lot, and got some great ideas. Here is the class room before everyone showed up, and the teacher making a demo bead.


Here are ones I made in class, they aren’t too spectacular but of course I was not expecting them to be. 

I have so many more things to tell.  I made some great purchases that I will share with you in the next few posts. Which will bee sooner rather than later.


A Month And A Half

I have been thinking lately I really need to get a blog post up, it’s been so long.  I was thinking 3 weeks was the last time I posted.  No, how about a month and a half.  In that time my blog anniversary came and went,  one year.  Time really has flown by.  WOW is all I have to say. In this next year let’s hope I can and will post more often. I haven’t been just sitting around I promise you.  I have been busy.  What have I been doing, you ask  well, I’ll tell you, even if you weren’t wondering.

At the end of October I finished my Chios level 1 energy healing (I’m working on level 2 now). I also became an Energy Healing Practitioner.  Working towards healing myself and others with energy.  It has been quite a beautiful journey and experience. 

I went hiking with one of my daughters.  I always enjoy getting out in nature. This is at Red Rock. 

 In mid November I spent 4 days going to a conference for my day job.  I am a Certified Ophthalmic Technician.  I got all my continuing education credits done so I can renew my certifications next year.  

This weekend I have been working on and finishing up two custom crochet mermaid tail blankets.   

 I will post pictures of the final product when I’m done.  I love them, they are so much fun. 

I have been making beads and a little bit of jewelry as well.

Quite a wordy post not too many pictures.  Just been busy.

Here Fishy Fishy Fishy

Last week I saw a post on my Facebook for someone to make a mermaid blanket.  I instantly fell in love.  Bought the pattern off of Ravelry.  She has wonderful patterns.  Hoping to get a few more.  In the meantime I think I’ll make some more mermaid blankets.   


As Promised 

Last post I showed you my earrings in progress.  Here are some of the finished products.  Still working on new designs.  What do you think so far?  So you have a favorite?

The sheet music  in some of the earrings was sent to me by my mother.  It makes beautiful earrings doesn’t it? 



More Than One Pair

I have been trying to see if I can do mass producing, well producing more than just one pair of earrings at a time (or any piece of jewelry) and come up with new designs. Last weekend I gave myself that challenge. I feel that it was very successful. Here are my works in progress. 


Finished earrings to follow.

It’s Taken Years

The meditation space in my room is pretty much complete.  In an earlier post I had showed you this beautiful glass Buddha head that I had recently purchased.  In that time I have acquired more items and found some I thought I had lost.  Some I forgot about and others were given to me.  What I thought was going to be a small table in a corner turned out to be a whole wall, and I just love it.  

In this picture is old and new. The drawers I found while I was out and about one day. I really didn’t have a purpose for it, I just knew I had to have it. The singing bowl I have had for years, love the sound that comes from it. 
 My mom had sent me some things a few months back that she thought I could use in my little area.  Use I did, the bells and that happy Buddha are right at home. 

   I got rid of my TV (great decision) and created this space.  Just looking at it brings a smile to my face.  Sometimes I will pick something up and ponder.  Inner peace here I come.

And Bake I Did

You can now add me to the fan list for the Kitchen-Aid mixer. I had so much fun making all the baked goods last Saturday. One of the most popular goodies that was made was the Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Scones. They were moist and flavorful. You can find the recipe here. 

If you like pumpkin anything, I truly believe you will love these.
