Treasures, Treasuries, and Thoughts

I swore I would never do a blog! So much for swearing. I didn't think that I would have much to say or share. I was wrong! I have been so blessed with a wonderful family, loyal friends, sharing colleagues, and the support from so many that I will never run out of topics to write about.

I have opened an on-line store at a place called Etsy (rhymes with Betsy). The items on the left are available for purchase there. These will change from week to week to show you my latest creations. The link to the store is in the upper left corner of this page.

I also have items for sale listed on Art Fire. The link to my Art Fire Studio is

I hope you will visit this blog, my Flickr page ( and my Etsy and/or Art Fire stores often. (

So come along on my Trail of Treasures! It will be a Spirit Journey for me and I invite you to join me on the trip.

I Placed Third!

Each month the Etsy Beadweavers have a themed challenge. In March, the theme was Fire and Flowers. I did an entry (#21) called "Goodness Gracious Great Balls of Fire" which was a take off on Jerry Lee Lewis's popular song. I'm afraid I owe Jerry Lee a great big apology for what I did to his lyrics!

Beadweavers, you shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
Too much thinking drives a beader insane!
You tested my will, but what a thrill.Goodness Gracious Great Balls of Fire!
I laughed at the theme..cause I thought the theme was funny.
This theme came along and moved me honey.
I changed my mind, this theme is fine.
Goodness Gracious Great Balls of Fire!
View me honey, those views feel good.
Heart me baby, I'm going to love you like an entry should.
Your kind
Got to tell the world this entry is mine,mine,mine.
I chew my nails and twiddle my thumbs.
I'm real nervous but entering sure is fun!
Goodness Gracious Great Balls of Fire!
Sorry Jerry Lee!! Just couldn't help myself!
I placed third in the competition which delighted me. There are some awesome beaders in this group as can be seen by the photo.
