Welcome to my blog

I'm a mother, wife, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend. I'm a self-taught potter. I make beads from clay and jewelry from my beads. Follow me on my online journal as I toss around ideas from my life and from my studio.

Bead Soup Blog Hop

Lori Anderson who hosts the fabulous Bead Soup Party each year is hosting a more intimate gathering where the participants send their partner a piece of jewelry that they either aren't crazy about, hasn't sold, has been sitting around for too long, whichever. Then the partner takes it apart and makes it into something else. Sounds like fun. I didn't get in on this one but you can watch. Starting Monday November 15 hop to these blogs and see the before and afters.

Here's one I'd like someone to revamp. Needs some uummmppppfffff!!

 As my Celebration post for ABS Carnival Bloggers I am celebrating life and nature through pictures. No words could ever do the splendor of nature justice. I recently went on a 4 mile hike in the Guadalupe Mountains in west Texas. I'd like to share some of that splendor with you. Enjoy!! and Celebrate!!
