More classes

The Right Angle Weave(RAW) class went very well. I did not take any pictures, sorry. I teach a basic bead stringing class tomorrow for another teacher who has to be out of town for a family issue. Then, saturday I teach a Dutch Spiral class, 3 students!

We have all our Super Bowl Sunday food. We do snacks and Nachos. Our son, Tyler, and family, plus our nephew and family will come. I don't really follow football but, I always try to participate in "the big game".

Here's a photo of the Hummingbird in progress. It is almost done. I just have to decide on the outer edges and where they stop. I will have a custom matte made that will go around the flower.

I really need to be working on my Spring Challenge piece and a hundred other things, so I'll write ya later.

Class today

HI! Everyone,
I am teaching an Advanced Right Angle Weave class today. I have one student. Maybe I'll take a picture or two to post. It is a rainy day here in Grants Pass, so it will be a good day to stay inside and teach someone something new.

Beady things,

New photos in the slide show

HI! Peeps,
I am adding a few new photos to the slide show. I am going to put up some photos of my older barrettes and bead knitted pouches and purses.

I got a little organizing done this afternoon. I got out my bead box of size 11 seed beads. It is mostly the beads I leave in hanks, on strings, for Bead Knitting and Bead Crocheting. I swear this box weighs 100 pounds, but the bathroom scale says it weighs 34 lbs. I went through it and got all the little baggies leftover from projects put back with their other bead pals in the proper baggies.

Now, on to adding pictures to the slide show and beyond!

Bead Counting

Well, this week I am helping my local bead shop, The Bead Merchant, with it's annual inventory count for the IRS. Yes. You really count all the beads. Today it was all the strands of beads. I dont' mind it at all. I am getting to handle(fondle) the most beautiful Freshwater Pearls and dream of what I could make with them. Is there a better part-time job? I don't think so! I get paid in rent to have my Beadwork in the shop for sale, even better!

Beads and-a-one-and-a-two.....,

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Everyone!

We spent a quiet evening at home watching a movie: The Full Monty. I really like that movie. I love British humor. Now for the hard part: remembering to write 2009 instead of 2008!

Here's a few of my latest obsession: Pocket Purses. I'll be selling them at Grower's Market in Grants Pass in the spring.
Best of the year to come!
