Lace Making in Venice

I've been busy getting ready for my trip to Italy. I'm going with 3 friends. And the 4 of us are leaving for Venice next Wed. We are going to be taking a Lace making class and we will be there for 3 weeks. Is that Cool or What......I know, it's cold there right now. But then it's cold here also. I think I rather be cold in Venice.....

Happy New Year

Well! here it is, another new year. I must be having fun, because this year really flew by for me. Christmas was hectic but wonderful. Grandchildren. That's the key element to a wonderful Christmas. Got a call on Christmas morning at 7:30a. The boys were up. Matthew 6 and Joseph 2. So Tom and I jump in our clothes. Put the coffee in the thermos and off we went to their house to see what Santa brought. And he brought a lot of goodies....LOL
Now its New Years Eve and I want to wish everyone and Happy and Healthy New Year. And those of you who made a New Year's resolution to lose weight this year. (Like me) May all your pounds come off. ...LOL

I finally did it.

Well I figured out how to add another slide show. I now know what I did wrong. Now, I think I should write it down so I won't forget. It was so simple. Anyways, all I had to do was write in my user name. DAH...... This one is of my jewelry. Most of which I have sold and therefore have to make some new ones.

Learning new things

The last couple of days have been hectic. Holiday parties and seeing old friends. In between this, I have been trying to learn how to post a slide show of some of my work. And just when you think you have a handle on it, poof, you don't. I finally got the quilts on and I was so excited I thought "hey a piece of cake" WRONG . downloaded my jewelry and for some reason it won't load. GRRRRR!!
I guess I will try again tomorrow. I have to keep the little Grey cells happy. Right now I think they want to rest. I also want to share some pictures of a new bracelet I made. I took a class last month at I Dream of Beading in Poughkeepsie.

Well I finally finished it. Had to put it aside to take care of my commission. The teacher was Met Innmon and she is from Colorado Springs. She is a wonderful teacher. Very talented. Very patient..If you get chance to take a class with her, I would recommend you do so.

Here is the new bracelet.

The last 3 bracelets.

Yay!! I finally finished that last 3 bracelets for my client. Wow that sounds pretty cool. My client..... Today I will deliver it. I'm very please with the way they turned out. I worked non stop until they were done and I definitely need a trip to the chiropractor LOL....but in the end I got a bracelet for my self and the start of a free form necklace...while trying to hit my stride.

Yesterday I printed out my own business cards. I've done this before but with little success. Mainly because my old HP printer doesn't like any other paper then regular white printing paper. So it would jam or the ink would smear. But I now have a new printer. Another HP, but a 3-in -one C5180and it's work fine. I also have an American greetings card program . I was able to put a picture of the turquiose necklace on the card. Came out real nice...I'm so very pleased when I don't have to curse at the PC first before I get something done....LOL
