Two Posts in One Week -- it's a miracle;)

Yes, there was a bead show in town and I ventured out into the cold and snowing weather....but it was worth it. Actually, I didn't find the big chunky gemstones I was looking for ..... but I found lots of pretty pearls to use and have already made a couple necklaces. Going to a bead show is like sending a candyholic into a candy store....oh, does that make me a "Beadaholic"?

I'm Still Here!

I know it's been a while....I just don't know where the time goes. This week has been Spring Break so we drove to Illinois for Sam to visit his Grandparents... An only grandchild needs to visit their only living grandparents as often as possible!
But I'm back I'm ready to get beading/etching/stamping...you name it. Plus Saturday there is a bead show so can't wait to buy more beads (yeh, I really need more). I have been enjoying etching some metal. Made a few mistakes but hope to finish the bottle of etchant from Radio Shack and etch some more...that stuff can not be good to enhale and it's been so chilly out I etched in my garage...not enough ventilation!!! I promise to be better with my blog....I'll post weekely if not bi-weekly!
