Its been forever since I have been on here, I so want to keep up with this, but it just gets past me. I did have a lot of fun with my umbrella, and it sold in silent auction for $100.00 I would have loved to keep it, but I guess I will just have to make me another one. Yea I know.. Like that will ever happen.
I don't have any new pictures to share, I have not really made anything, I think I am in technique mode. I want to try something, so I try it, realize i can do it, then put it away. I have been playing a lot with seed beads and loving that. But it really takes a lot more time, something I tend to keep losing.
There is lots of things I want to do, but the creativity is not there, or maybe it is the drive. I have tons of found art stuff, you know all the old stuff and that is really the way I want to go, but sometimes I get overwhelmed trying to figure out what items to use. I love all my little containers and drawers, but I hate going through every thing just to find the right thing. Anyone have any suggestions for me?? well back to cleaning up the stack of plates I just broke!
One extra note I have been moving some of my knotted stuff and my "10" necklace. for those of you who don't remember it I added a picture.


  1. Love this Jean, miss coming to classes at Beads!! Maybe I'll catch up with you and Terry some Saturday! Love the necklace!!!

  2. when i am creating a project i tend to narrow down in my head the size or shade that something is needed. then i go over to my stash and start looking for that size or shape. i take it over to my piece to see if it compliments it. if so, then i use it. if not, back to the drawer. so i don't necessarily look at what the object is, but more in terms of shape. seems to work!


  3. thanks Jean for your kind comments on my blog. I emailed you this a.m. but wasn't sure you got it.
    I talked with Beverly about doing a workshop over there...she was going to work on it.
