Photo Problems

For some unknow reason, this site is not allowing me to upload photos. I hope they get it fixed soon. Computers are great as long as they work.
The Grand Wine and Food Affair was great this past weekend. The food and wine were plentiful and the music kept it lively. We had a great time and met some very nice people. The event planners know how to put on a good show in a beautiful setting. I hope to be back next year.
I will try later to add more photos if they get their techical glitches worked out.

This has been quite a week. My Dad gave us a scare and was rushed to the ER last Thursday which resulted in surgery for a pacemaker. I am blessed to have such a wonderful family and I am glad that my Dad is recovering quickly.
I have another show tomorrow. It should be fun and the weather is supposed to be great this time unlike my last show that was cancelled.
Here is a link:

My Little Helper

I usually take photographs outside and the cat that lives next door always comes over to help. I think he was more interested in the fish in the pond this time than my beads. He is so sweet.

I made this pendant out of orphan beads which are left over from other sets or just experiments. It looks great on a long heavy chain.

New Beads

Here is one new set that I made over the weekend. There are only 3 colors used in these but it looks like more. That is what is so fun about glass - you never know what you are going to get. I have more jewelry to finish up and will add more photographs soon. This necklace looks great with jeans.

Spring in Texas

It doesn't get much better than this. My husband and I took a drive Monday and this is what we saw. These magnificent animals were in their element grazing in the Bluebonnets. I thought you might like to see one reason that I am proud to be a native Texan.

New Photos

The new photo software is actually easier to use than I expected. I had ordered this silver framed bracelet from a supplier that feeds the addiction that all beadmakers aquire. We are always looking for something new to use with our beads. I ordered one to see how it worked and I think that it is perfect to show off these beads.

I have been going back to an old style with a twist. Just dots! They can be layered and manipulated in so many ways. The color combinations are endless.

Thanks for looking. More later.

Good Friday

Last week was not a good one. My kiln broke, my computer crashed and the art show was cancelled due to rain. I fixed my kiln, my son hopefully fixed my computer and I have been accepted into another show. I loaded another photo editing program so now I have to learn how to use it.

This is a photo my son took out on our deck. We don't know where it came from or how it climbed up two steps to get there, but isn't he cute?

I made a few beads today so when they are photographed, I will post something else soon.
