About Me

I am.... A mother of 4, my greatest accomplishments. The man in my life.... supports me, makes me & the childrens a priority, shares many of my passions, & will wait hours for me while I shop for beads & crap, I mean crafts :) I love... my kids, my man, my family & friends, animals, live music, & traveling (going to zoos & bead stores anywhere we go). My obsessions are... Aerosmith, P!nk, Disney, & Josh Hamilton. I watch... Transformers the movie at least once a week (guess that's an obsession too) My confession... I am a hoarder of BEADS but I hope to be more productive in all medias of art jewelry.

7 Months

It's been about 7 months since my last post & it's all a blur!
I passed my P&C insurance test last April & I have been working on getting things back in order.
I say with a little giggle :)
I am excited to say that I have most of my crafting collection moved into my grandmothers basement. I have been going through it slowly & getting it organized as I go. It's going to be a great place to work & I am so thankful!
Before Photos:

I'm also excited because I have signed up for another serving of Bead Soup Blog Party!
And as they say, things come in 3's.
Next weekend I am hoping to take a metal class with one of my favorite people, check it out:
So keep posted because 2014 is going to be a great year!!!
