Welcome to my blog! When I started this blog it was all about wire crochet jewelry. I fell in love with the first piece I saw and I had to learn how. I was "hooked"!

I'm a Winner!

I was the lucky winner of this pretty little organza bag full of goodies from Jewelry by Jessica!    She published her 100th blog post and celebrated with a give-away.  What a fun prize.  Just look at everything I received!  These are going to be some fun things to work with!

Hop on over and visit Jessica's blog, To Bead or Not to Bead What a Question,  and look at the beautiful jewelry that she makes!  Thank you so much, Jessica!

I've been lucky!  I also won another blog give-away that I can't wait to share when it arrives!

Here's a little update on what's going on with me lately~

  I received an Etsy order for 13 matching bridesmaids necklaces!  (Yay!)  I've been working on getting those done.

My jewelry is now for sale at the local consignment shop.  It's on display in their glass showcase.   I've already sold a few things, so that's exciting!  She wants me to make up some earrings to bring in, too.  

The local "Pecanfest" is coming up in November.  This will be the third year I've had a booth.  I also need to be working on jewelry for that.  It will be here before we know it!

Each year when fall arrives I get the urge to get out the yarn and crochet.  I recently discovered the Knifty Knitter and have been a little obsessed with it!  It's like the spool knitted jewelry only on a larger scale.  It's so relaxing.  You don't even have to think about it and this perfectly knitted piece comes out!  I never learned to knit so I'm pretty amazed with how it turns out!

And with all of this going on I've had a little "creative block".  I have a closet full of beads and just can't seem to get an idea of what I want to do! 

I went to the doctor this week (which I just don't do unless I'm seriously sick and that seldom happens) because my kids forced me to.  My youngest daughter actually made the appointment for me.  I had a really ugly mole on my back and a spot on my nose that just wouldn't heal.  Thank goodness, the mole was nothing to worry about and the one on my nose was pre-cancerous.  Both have been frozen and I'm good to go.  I'm glad I finally had them checked out because it has been a nagging worry.  It's just so easy to put off making the appointment.

Well, that's what's going on in my world.  Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Wow congratulations! It all sounds so exciting! Winning two giveaways, getting a huge custom order, having your jewelry in a consignment store, and best of all not having cancer :). I hope pecanfest go well :)

Happy Beading,
