Hi Everyone!!

I can't believe that my time is flying by faster than usual. I have missed all of you and hope that you are having a summer. I am calling this year in Florence our Winter/Summer. LOL

Today I will continue to bead and create and then tomorrow take a day off. Mike and I will drive over to Eugene, OR. to attend Gem Fair. I will be able to take photos of my good friend, Linda's booth. So I will have some things to share with you. Camera's are really not allowed but I have worked it out with her. I have also received another very nice email from a lady who is looking for my Curls n Swirls necklace that was the cover page and article in Bead Unique magazine 5 years ago. It always amazes me how people remember this particular necklace. I asked her how she remember it and here is what she had to say.

Well, I guess it must have made a big impression upon me. I actually purchased a focal bead very similar to the one on the magazine cover with the intention of going back to buy the magazine, however I waited too long and the next month's issue was already out at my local bead store. Anyhow, I came across the focal bead in my bead stash last week while looking for something else. For once I was organized enough to place a sticky note with the name of the pattern and the artist attached to the focal bead.

Now that... is organization. I love this idea of attaching a note to a focal bead.
Well I need more coffee so I can get this day started
Wishing all of you a sunny filled day
Honor and Integrity in Life in Art


  1. I love that necklace too.
    I hope you are doing well.
    Have a wonderful day off tomorrow looking through wonderful treasures.
    love and hugs.

  2. The Eugene show is wonderful! I used to go to it every year. Now I'm in Seattle and the one up here isn't so good. Say hello to Damien and Wendy at EastWestBest. They have wonderful pearls!

  3. That just has to make you smile...when you work leaves that kind of impression on someone. Have a wonderful time at the gem show.
