A Beautiful spring day

I've been busy going to see my chiropractor, the last two weeks and I'm happy to say its paid off as far as pain goes. Went to a small but nice craft show this last Saturday with a friend Laura, we spent a pleasant afternoon. I purchased a few nice stamps, mostly unmounted, as I use them for polymer clay quite a bit of the time and need them unmounted then, when I want them as a regular stamp, I just stick some tape on one of my mounts and use it that way. I bought another toy its another type of spiral book or note tool and it looks easy and fun to do, you can't use heavy cardboard or such with it, but its fun for note pads or telephone books etc. I will be trying it out today or tomorrow and let you know how happy or sad I am. lol..Got to go do a bit of cleaning before I hit my craft room. that's all for today.

Busy Day

I was busy today creating some earrings and and a necklace which are still not quite done, and really can't think of much to write about today, other than to say maybe its not such a good idea to have the amount of stash that I have in beads, I'm smiling as I write this, because its so much fun going online to some of my favorite places for beads and seeing what is new, not thinking about the ton I already have. Sometimes it gets difficult to choose. I do enjoy putting all kinds of colors and different beads together to see what I can come up with that is interesting. Its just about time for me to make some polymer beads and also some silk beads myself too. I enjoy doing both and usually get an inspiration for something when I am making them. We shall see. Jack took some pictures of a few of my "things" this week while he was home but I wasn't happy with the pictures at all, they were not clear enough nor bright enough to post. He is working on that with some new pictures soon.

A sunny happy Monday

I must admit, I haven't visited my blog all last week, it was so beautiful and the temps were so warm for us here in IL. it was in the 70's and 80's so I was out in the yard, helping cut up all the branches from the pruning that was done by a sweetheart of a new friend, and my sweetie Jack, we also took a day off so I could run to Michaels for a few bits that I needed to put together a new watch and band. I also was busy ordering some new beads and things I needed for jewelry. I received my new toy the My Story by Provo which is a binder and laminator, but I was busy with outside and shopping so will tell you how it works from my point of view later. I do want to mention a sale of all sales if anyone is interested in beads and jewelry supplies, one of my favorite places online for quite awhile was Beadbabe.com and they are going out of business, its kinda the end of the sale now, and most beads are going for 60% off, so if your interested give it a look see. They only and have only carried on shape in the Swarovski beads but what I use mostly so, I've usually got them there. My honey is on vacation this week, so I will be in and out and keeping him busy around the house.
