  • Whew.  It's been a hard week.  My body absolutely hates weather changes especially when we are heading into colder, wetter weather.

  • I did have a bright spot however as I received my design kit from Artisan Component Marketplace.  I just love the wooden focal that Kari included.  It is from Dobzie Wood and the ceramic beads are from Okawa African Beads.
  • I had to chuckle when it arrived and I saw that it contained beads from Okawa.  I have spent the last week or so immersed in Okawa beads as they are the foundation to my new collection.
  • Occasionally I enjoy reading anthologies as I find authors that are new to me.  I have found that I will usually love some of the stories and others are so-so.  I am reading one right now where I loved the first story and the second...well it's hard to read because of how the author strings her words together.  It will make for an interesting review.

  • Went to the Tacoma Art Museum last Saturday with the Red Hatters.  I had lots of fun and saw some gorgeous paintings and jewelry.  Yep I wasn't even aware that they were having a jewelry exhibition.  Kinda lucked into that.


  1. Looking forward to seeing your creation from the goodies in the first photo! And always interesting to see what you are up to!
