Been a long time since I Blogged.

 Hello all!  It's been many months since I took the time to blog and for that I am truly sorry.  I have missed putting my latest projects out there for all to see.  A few months ago I was hit with a compulsion and a passion for making paper beads.  For a couple of weeks it was all I could do in my spare time! 
I went "full time" at my place of work just over three months ago and it has seriously cut into my creative time.  I am hoping to fall into a smoother routine this fall in order to accommodate the time I need for my the time I MUST spend crafting.....if I don't take the time I need I do become a very crabby girl indeed.
 I am also feeling a little reflective these youngest daughter is off to college in one week.  I cannot lie...I have shed some tears already.  Today we went to Walmart with all the other parents and dropped a wad of cash on school supplies.  She is chomping at the bit to go and experience life on her own far from Mom and Dad.  I am happy to have not raised a timid, frightened child but one who wants to spread her wings!  I send her off with some of these beauties but she won't wear 'em.  My youngest is a bit of a Tomboy, more interested in a rousing game of "Assassin's Creed" on her Playstation than a few paper bead bracelets!


  1. I LOVE your paper bead bracelets!! They are wonderful! I love making beads but I usually use fabric. Your bracelets have inspired me to get rolling!

  2. I love the bracelets - they remind me of some fabulous jewelry from (made by Uganda women from recycled paper). Would love for you to post a photo on the Blue Velvet Chair facebook page for the readers there to have a look as well. This definitely fits the profile of my recycling and repurposing readers.

  3. That is very interesting thing that some people use heavy duty dog beds. i can not understand why people use this kind of dogs beds. may be they have benefits from it but my perception is that type of dogs beds not use for our cute dogs.
