I Did It!!
Well what do you know, I finally took the plunge and started this blog! Now all I have to do is figure out what to write! lol Let's see, a little about myself maybe? I'm a transplanted Yankee who considers herself a Texan after 30 years in the Lone Star state! I'm happily married to the same fellow for almost 29 years, one lovely girl now in college, wheeee, empty nest!!!! I'm owned by 4 cats and 1 dog, live in the country, make jewelry and occasionally clean house.
I love making jewelry, mostly I'm a stringer with some wire art additions. I'm in love with handmade lamp work and semi-precious gemstones, and the odd (odder the better! lol) found object. I've been crafty all my life, I think I made my first necklace at age 4 in vacation bible school! Don't you just love macaroni! lol I tried many different things over the years, sewing, stamping, painting, clay, but about 4 years ago the jewelry finally took over and push everything else to the back burner! Three years ago I realized I was making way more than I could wear or give away and decided to try my hand at selling. We have a wonderful artist venue here called the Old Chicken Farm Art Center that hosts a 1st Saturday of the Month for outside vendors like me! I truly enjoy this once a month oddessy even when the temps soar into the 100's. I've met wonderful people from all over the country, sold a few things and made some great new friends!! If you're ever out in the San Angelo area on 1st saturday come by and say howdy!
