An Intro

Awww.... look - it's a brand new baby blog.  All right, all right - so it's not much to look at yet.  Babies aren't always adorable right off the bat, either, you know.  Sometimes it takes a while - they have to grow into their ears and stuff.  I'm sure that given time, just like the ugliest baby, this blog will blossom:)

So.... I make jewelry.  I'm obsessed with making jewelry, really.  I used to be obsessed with genealogy and before that it was cake decorating.  But now, I'm all about jewelry and have been for years.  I do mostly micro macrame, but I'll attempt just about anything.  I've tried  bead weaving, torch fired enameling, acid etching, chemical patinas - you name it.  I didn't say I was good at any of that stuff, mind you - but I've dabbled.

I am married and have been for 26 years.  My husband and I have two kids - my son just finished his first year of college and my daughter is sixteen and will be a Junior next year.  We have a cat and three dogs - one's the most spoiled mini doxie EVER - that one's mine.  The two big dogs belong to my husband.  One's a big black lab that was supposed to be a hunting dog, but he's not really into that.  He'd rather lay around and be cuddly.  The other dog is a retired police service dog - he was my husband's K-9 partner until he retired last fall.

I work full time and make jewelry in most of my free time.  And that's me in a nutshell.


  1. I find it amazing that you can work full-time and still make so much awesome jewellery. Congratulations on your new blog!

  2. I love macramé, dabbled with it as a kid, still remember some knots. Congrats on your new blog, I am happy to be a member and nice to meet you!

    1. Welcome, Marti - I've long been a fan of your clay work!

  3. May you grow into your ears soon! Thanks for the tutorial with photos.

  4. I too, love macrame, I just haven't made any jewelry with it, but maybe with your help, I will. :) I love the fact that your hubby's partner got to retire with him, and to come home with ya'll. I had a mini doxie a few years ago...I didn't know they could be anything but spoiled! Looking forward to reading your blog posts.

  5. Welcome to blog world! Look forward to reading your posts!


I'd love to hear from you!
