Hi! Check out my Weblog
when you have a chance...I have been blogging 2-3 times per week.
I added more beads tonight...a few sets and focals.
More beads to come! I actually created a few this past weekend. Finally back to the torch after three months...:)

Hi! I started my own Wordpress blog
a few weeks ago. Most of my ramblings will be now found at the new blog. I am going to try to keep this area for business related chats.
Are you looking for some vintage beads? Retro-Beads
is a website of mine for selling a bunch of vintage beads that I just do not have time to use.
I have to run...more updates soon....

Hi! Happy Labor Day
! Did you know Labor Day began in 1882 and is a day off for the “working man”? As a kid Labor Day was so meloncholy since it always marked the start of school and the end of summer.
Today I am just catching up on my to-do list. Saturday I had a morning of shopping. I so needed some new clothes and accessories. I found some great bargains and was able to add five new outfits to my “school marm” wardrobe.
I better run…more later.

Hi! Big changes are going on around my world. I have decided to make a huge leap and have re-entered the job-market. I actually applied this spring for a few teaching positions and I had my mind set to substitute for another year (I substitute taught this spring) and slowly adjust to working on someone else's schedule....then I had an interview on Thursday and was hired Thursday evening for a 6th grade math teaching position which begins MONDAY!! So that makes it a very abrupt change of life
. The past four years have been a fabulous journey...and being my own boss was fantastic as well as working with glass has been energizing....however, working with kids and teaching has always been a passion of mine since I was a little girl.... and I was missing teaching!!
I am looking forward to having a fun and exciting year teaching sixth grade math.
Although, I'll miss hanging out on some of the glass forums all hours of the day and night!!
It will be a huge adjustment trying to balance my new teaching schedule and responsibilities with my family and if time ,creating new glass treasures so please be patient with me during this first month.
I'll keep you updated as the changes begin...but if you do not hear from me right away, you will know that I am buried under the beginning of the schoolyear paperwork.

Hi! We have been having electrical storms every day this past week. My internet connection has been on and off...seems like mostly off due to the storms. Only a few days to go until I leave for the Gathering.

Auction this week:
Have to run~

Hi! I am procrastinating...I have a lot of murrini components to put together and I can not get my murrini mojo flowing! Don't you hate that?? When you want to work on something and it just will not go well no matter what?? Maybe it is just tooooo hot?? Today the high in my studio was 102 degrees...that is just a little toooo hot, don't you agree?? Or maybe it is due to my head being filled with a different image that needed to come out?? I think it is blocking my murrini mojo!! So after a few months of resisting the image, I decided since the murrini mojo was stuck that I needed to create the image...so I did....and I think maybe a new series was hatched.
Anyways...I was able to work on a lot of so far this week..... New arrowheads...new masks....and perhaps the new series....and I did not waste toooo much glass with murrinis that had face components askew!!
Well...back to work for me! Only a few days left until the Gathering. More later~

Hi! I couldn't help myself...I had to watch Scott Baio is 45....and Single
and I had not a clue what it was going to be about. It actually was funny in spots and sad in others. I really thought it was cool that he has seeked out a life coach. Reminded me of Starting Over.
Here is the link:http://www.vh1.com/shows/dyn/scott_b...e/series.jhtml
It has the "I've screwed up a bunch with my life and I need to find out why so that I can be happy" theme to the show. And Scott Baio does not come off looking tooo great....but at least he is shocked by his past behavior and his younger self. Hope the show helps him become a better person.

Hi! I have been helping out a friend, Bernadette Fuentes
, with her new Pappashop website. A few weeks ago, we decided to redesign the template and the site and I really love the new look. The new streamline design gives a nice calm rich background that offsets Bernadette's glass work. What do you think???
Well, time to torch...more later.

Hi! I have added 5 tutorials
