I've got the fever

Hey All,
Well, I'm back in business. Just sold a lot of about 100 beads to a local shop and I managed to get the Free Beads Monday back in gear. Yay! I'm feeling much more productive now.
I'm also getting ready to purchase an oxygen generator. It's a major purchase but it will pay for itself in just a few months and I will avoid the hassle of dealing with a welding supply company, although my guy is awesome about quick delivery!

I've got a touch of the Spring Fever, I must say, so don't be surprised if every bead I list looks summery and light for a while. My ski trip, followed by weather at home in the 70's and low 80's has just put me in the 'Mood'. I am such a total beach girl, even after all these years. I can hardly wait to hit the sand!

Well, have a good one everybody!

Down from the mountain

Hi All,
Well, I made it back from skiing. Despite some heavy snow and blinding wind, we had a great time. Both of the kids learned to ski and thought it was fantastic fun. They are ready to go back again right away. My son had never seen snow, and he was amazed by it. I couldn't hardly keep them inside, even in the worst conditions. They just wanted to sled and through snow around and make snow angels.
Today is Connor's birthday and tommorrow is Anna's. We'll celebrate over the weekend and then it's back to the grindstone. I can't wait.
Have a great day

Up on the mountain

Hi All,
I know I said I'd have some listings this week, but I decided to hold off because we are going on a quick ski trip and I didn't want to be out of town when any auctions were running. I take my laptop, but I don't like to have to keep checking in on it.
This was a last minute trip for the combined birthdays of the kids and I. My birthday is the 17th, Connor's is the 22nd and Anna's is the 23rd. So we just sort of bunched them all together and decided to head for some snow. It's been a very difficult few months for the family, with my Dad's ongoing battle with cancer and the loss of my husband's grandmother at Christmas. And those were just the most dramatic. It seems like every week there is some new crisis. We finally gave up and planned a little trip.
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying whatever comes your way. I'll be in touch next week!

On the Blink

Hey All,
Finally, I'm back. My computer was on the blink and I haven't been able to do any work on the website or even update it. Usually I'm pretty good at fixing what ails it, but this time I was stumped. Anyway, got it back yesterday so I've been able to update at long last.
I also made a run up to our neighboring county to the north to donate some blankets and household goods to the tornado victims. The area hit was very working class, for the most part and a lot of those people have just what was in their homes. They don't want to or can't afford to just leave it. They have to stay and there are people camping in tents and in storage sheds right now. My husband and I still have our travel trailer that was wrecked in an accident several months ago. It's not good for travel anymore but it's still in perfect condition inside and everything works just fine. If someone could use it to stay in instead of outside in this cold, it would be good for that. I've been tossing the idea around of letting some family use it.
It's just been too cold to be out in the studio the past week or so. I had some beads ready to list and then ended up selling them locally. However, I do have a set and a couple of focals to list on Wednesday, as well as a relist. Everyone will get a newsletter update and hopefully it will work o.k.
Everything else is just the old same-same, as my son says!
Have a great week.
