A Too Long a Wait Update

October 30, 2016

I know it’s been forever since the last update. This post has some of my latest work. This makes me happy. Right now I need all the happy (and orders) I can get. My mom is slowly losing her memory. It’s not Alzheimer’s, but part of the aging process, I’ve already cut back to part time, and have to “retire” at the end of the year due to her care. Since I’m only 51, I need another form of income that allows me to be at home. Orders and referrals are appreciated, and you can find me on Instagram and my store .


Also, I will be a vendor at an event on December 3rd, in Laurelton, Queens NY. The hours are 1-5PM, at the Tulip Hall, 219-15 Merrick Boulevard.

Found some wonderful pieces at the NY Whole Bead Show a few weeks ago. Fortunately, I won passes, and managed to find a few hours to get out of the house. It was so worth it. Even stayed under budget.


I spent New Year’s day throwing salt and shopping online. The salt was for the driveway. We had some snow New Year’s Eve, but fortunately not much. Salt is a good thing.  Someone gave me a department store gift certificate for Christmas, so I ordered a new jacket and a few trinkets.  The best thing done was re-organizing my studio. I bought myself a heavy duty organizer from "Home Despot". You have no idea what you’ve got until you clean. I found jewelry pieces presumed lost months ago.  Then I cleaned up my networking page. It’s back to a more professional tone. 

Whether my space stays organized remains to be seen. I usually have more than one project going at a time.  But it does look good.
