Actually, I have stopped almost everything. My husband had an accident that injured his spinal cord and the majority of my time has been spent taking care of him. He is steadily improving and is now able to be left alone so I am slowly making my way back out to my studio to have a little play time.
Saturday we decided to update our wi-fi router and I purchased a new laptop. I finally got the router set up yesterday afternoon and I will now be able to have the same access to the internet in my studio that I do in my house. THIS MAKES ME VERY HAPPY!!!!!!!!
This morning I am trying to learn as much as I can about this new laptop. It has windows 8 and tiles, which I am not familiar with. I do have an Ipad but using the tiles on a laptop is new to me. I'm from the old school and it is definitely a learning curve. I hope to be up and running soon so I can get back into the swing of posting again as well as reading the blogs that I follow. I have missed being in touch with everyone and being able to make comments on your posts. If you have any advice or tips about the HP Envy Touchsmart and Windows 8 I would welcome your comments.
Thanks and have a great day!

This morning I came out and looked at my art table and thought about the mess it was in,
I have been doing some sewing lately and will post about that later this week. Right now, I've got to get that table cleaned so I can play around with some art journals. I'm having withdrawals!
Have a blessed day and keep smiling!

Beadshop.Com. They have a great video channel and some patterns are free to print from their website. I watched their videos and decided I wanted to try a different style. More shopping! Came home, set up my Ipad so I could watch and work at the same time. Came up with these bracelets.
Ricks Beading Loom with no warp threads when you are finish. It was a little difficult in the beginning but I came home with this bracelet.

Mother has been gone now for 2 years and there are days I still wake up thinking I need to visit mom today. Well, in a way, I do visit mom and it's not just in my dreams. My visits come through my thoughts during the day. They come through something said during a conversation and especially looking and talking to my daughter. She spent so many years around mom that she picked up a lot of her traits that I am beginning to see as Amanda gets older. When mom passed, she left her flame of life here on earth and that flame continues in her family that remains and it will continue until we are gone.

The rain is coming. I can hear it beginning to hit our tin roof. Lightly as it starts then louder and louder until it's a downpour. I love listening to the rain but I don't like storms. Our pets aren't that crazy about them either. The dogs are laying close by, the cats are hiding under the furniture and my little horses are huddled under the tree.

When Amanda gave this to me I thought of all the beads I had sitting in containers just waiting for something to be done with them. I started looking through You Tube and found several channels about making jewelry. That started the journey and I will show you what I have done in the next post. Stay tuned.

Anyway, that doesn't have a thing to do with the title of the post, but this does.
