My Pods!!

Well would you look at what showed up on the Bead and Button Show website today.... a photo from last year at B&B of my copper pods! I also noticed that they are used at the beginning of this years class catalog! Thanks Bead & Button!

New photos!

So last night we headed to my brother-in-laws to have some new jury photos taken! THANKS RANDY! I love how they turned out! Now it's time to hit the applications again, such a long and tedious process, especially when a rejection letter shows up after all that work! Oh well, has to be done! Here is a peek, then I am off to finish getting my taxes together, oh such a fun week!

It is FREEZING here in MN! I sure am glad my commute only involves a flight of stairs and not going outside into a cold, cold car! Stay warm!

I love Mondays! A new week has begun, not to mention a new year, and we all get a fresh start. Christmas break is over, which I am always sad about, I love having Kendal home for the week! We just hung out most of the break, watched a lot of movies...and hockey of course. The girls took the consolation game [ 7 - 2 ] in the weekend's tournament, so that was fun. Now it is back to the studio, headache or not, I need to get going on new work and restocking my supply of inventory! Have a great Monday everyone!

"I wish for those I love this New Year an opportunity to earn sufficient, to have that which they need for their own and to give that which they desire to others, to bring into the lives of those about them some measure of joy, to know the satisfaction of work well done, of recreation earned and therefore savored, to end the year a little wiser, a little kinder and therefore a little happier."

January 1, 1937 Eleanor Roosevelt

Boy am I ready for this new year, not to mention decade! After blood sugar control problems over the last few months, skin cancer and the following surgery, not to mention this on-going headache for the last 6+ weeks, I am ready for a new start!

On my resolution list thus far:
1. More consistant blogging: I am shooting for a minimum of once a week!
2. Website for my jewelry: Which will be at
3. Monthly paperwork: I'm am not waiting for the end of the year this time around!
4. New product: Always ongoing, but would love to put out something new and exciting once a week! Maybe that will be part of my weekly blog?! I am also aiming to spend part of a day each week doing just that, working on new ideas!
5. More torch time: Making time each week to work at the torch!

Ok, that may be enough of a list...for now anyway! Have a great weekend everyone!
