Oh My Goodness!

Copyright 2010 Theresa Buchle
I was looking at my Linked In page and noticed that I had visitors - an anonymous attorney at the US Attorney's office, another anonymous person, evidently an administrator at Cornell University, someone in semiconductors in San Francisco, and a couple of others who wants to remain anonymous. Well, how about that? No, I don't give that link out. It doesn't really do much for me. But it does make me wonder.

Then I was searching for something of interest for YOU and took a look at my blog links. I noticed that some of my fellow bloggers have not updated in a year (or more!). Oh my goodness! Well, that's not good, is it? So I guess I'll clean those up a bit for you. Have a beady blog I should add? Let me know - I'd be happy to link to it. 

I considered photographing today. I'm not sure I'll find another model like the one above and my back is protesting a bit from all the bending, twisting and positioning. We'll see. I might just work with the photos I took yesterday. I do have a tutorial to write. But I'm working at home - yay! Maybe I'll publish. Oh wait! Yep, stories and novels. You'll have to search for the noms des plumes though! 

Oh my goodness!

Everything Old Is New Again

Sunflower Earrings Tutorial
Copyright 2013 Theresa Buchle

So, what's new? Me? Well, I've actually reverted to old tricks - sort of. The T-man has a brand new gig and I am now helping him in a temporary capacity as his Girl Friday, but I am also back in my little studio space doing my own thing. Half a day here, half a day there - most of the time it works that way. Right now it's the best of both worlds. And unfortunately to do that Girl Friday gig I had to give up the teaching spot at Nomadic Notions but they will always hold a dear spot in my heart.  It doesn't mean I won't be teaching, it just means I'm on hiatus while I take care of clearing off my work table in my studio. It seems to be cluttered with beads and such.

So for now, I'll be loading the Etsy shop with tutorials like the one you see above. That's the Sunflower Earrings Tutorial and that gorgeous sample was beaded by my bead angel Gaye. She does a wonderful job of beading samples for me. Give her a big round of beady applause!

So, it's nice to see you again. I'll be back in a couple of days with more beady goodness. Keep on beading on!
