The Best Bead Give-A-Way Ever!

Denise Yezbak Moore is giving away a HUGE bead stash on her blog. Oh my stars! It's like a mini bead store. Be sure to follow her rules if you want to be entered.

I'm off to West Virginia later this week. John Denver keeps singing in my ear. I'm not sure I'll get to see much of anything other than my hotel room and the classroom, but I can dream. From what I've seen, it's a beautiful city with tree lined streets sitting the banks of a river. Plus, the weather forecast is very similar to what we have here so packing will be very easy.

Other than that, everything here is pretty much the same. You'll hear from me when I get back and if I get out, I'll make sure to take some photos. In the meantime, keep on beadin' on!

Oh, Hello!

What's new? I've not been doing much, which is totally contrary to what I should have been doing. I find I'm still kind of muddling through my days but, with Yoda as my new mentor, I have a new attitude. "Do or do not . . . there is no try." This week there are kits to make and ship to the hotel. Next week I get on a plane and fly to Charleston, West Virginia to spend a few days with some wonderful stichers/beaders. I'm looking forward to everything but the flying part. I hate to fly.

On the home front, it is summer time which means Ariel is home with me. On Wednesday Marshall is scheduled for surgery, but he is such a strong little fighter that I'm sure he will come through with flying colors. Even so, you know I always welcome your well wishes and positive thoughts.

That's the update for now. Hopefully, they will begin to be more frequent and I can start boring you all again with photos of piles of beads, and there is a HUGE pile right now! For now, I must get things moving. Keep on beadin' on!
