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.

My middle brother Patrick, is in the light shirt. When he was in the Navy he came home on leave and while my mom and I were out he dyed his blonde hair and eyebrows black. When we got home he stuck his head out the door and my mom said, "Well, you Terry Newman looking thing". Terry was her brother and she was right Pat looked just like him. He had dye all over the bathroom but all we could do was laugh.
When I got old enough to go into night clubs, my oldest brother Michael decided I could go with him one night. He had this red Volkswagen, pin striped black with chrome wheels. We were in Nashville and he was trying to get through all the traffic so he decided to drive on the sidewalk. I gotta tell ya, it scared the ..... out of me. I just knew we would get stopped and arrested, but all Mike did was laugh at me.
Memories of Sunday dinners, lots of laughter, disagreements of course and love. That's what I'm remembering today.

was built way back when and the attic had very little, if any, insulation in it. When they came to give us an estimate, they told us we would have to cut a hole in the ceiling in order to reach all of the areas of the attic. Okay, we went with it and had them come but we ended up with two holes in the ceiling. Ricky wanted me to paint a couple of barn quilts of wood and that is what we used to cover the holes.
