A WOO and a HOO... TGIF everyone! So happy it's Friday, aren't you?! :)

I have an auction set to share with you today. It's
Oopsy Daisythat I posted here last week. I decided to put it on Ebay today. I haven't had an auction in over 2 years. Wow! I know. It's been a really long time. I do hope you show it some love. Thanks for peeking!
A busy weekend ahead for us. Remember I was telling you about Jordan's baseball parade a couple weeks ago? Well, it's tomorrow and they're having a hit, run & throw competition prior to the game. Yes. A game, too. And then Sunday, Madison has her first Soccer game. Wooooo! It's the first time she's playing a sport. Well, other than cheer leading, which really is a sport, too, just different. You know what I mean. I do hope it warms up around here, because it was darn chilly at practice today. Brrr!
Have a fabulous weekend!

So I'm thinkin' I may be addicted to beach themed beads because that's all I've been makin' this week. Two new sets today- Surfer Girl in aqua and blue with my first sea urchin. Boy, Summer can't come soon enough. Trips to the beach, backyard barbecues, campfires and smores. Oh, I love it! :)

Yesterday's game was great! Jordan got a hit to second base, played really well and his team won 17-3. Way to go Reds!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

It's the 80's and it's so weird to me, being from CA, that it's so warm without sunshine. But, hey, that's the way it goes in Central, NY. I can't complain, though. At least I'm not cold anymore. Yay! :)
New beads today! First 'Tropical Getaway' a beautiful set in teal, aqua and orange that includes my first hollow. I couldn't believe how easy it was to make a hollow bead. Maybe it's all my expertise. :) I'll definitely be making more. I also have sand dollar earrings and a seashell pendant. Both are really pretty. Thanks for peeking!
Today is Jordan's first baseball game. He's been doing really well at practices and has hit 5 home runs. Woo hoo... it's going to be a great season!

What a great Easter! Hope yours was great, too. Mine was very relaxing and spent in my pajamas. Oh yes I did and I even baked a turkey! It was a rainy day so we hid our eggs downstairs in the basement. First time ever hiding them indoors. Jordan and Madison had a blast finding them and then turned around and hid them for us. They do it every year and get the biggest kick out of it. They have fun telling us, "You're hot." or "You're cold." They're so cute! Dwayne's brother had to work Sunday so we had Easter with the family today. Grandma & grandpa hid 99 plastic eggs and boy did the 5 grandkids have fun finding them filled with goodies. We had 2 Easters this year. Oh, what fun!
Today is the last day of Spring Break. My kids go back to school tomorrow and it's back to work for me.

TGIF everyone and what a beautiful Friday it is. The sun is shinning and it's nearly 60 degrees. Woo hoo! 
I have something new to share with you today. 'Oopsy Daisy' is a pretty pink set of 15 beads that includes 6 pairs for your designing delight. Oh, boy what you could make with these. So many possibilities.  :)
Went to the movies Wednesday. We were going to see Rio, but when we got there, we changed our minds and saw Hop instead. It was cute and reminded me of Alvin & The Chipmunks.
Tonight we're going to a fish fry at the fire department. There's nothing better than a bunch of 'hot' firemen (no pun intened.... okay maybe there cookin' up a yummy meal, is there? ;)
Have a Easter-iffc weekend!

Happy Tuesday! Still under grey skies, but no rain. Yay! But, boy, how I miss the sunshine.
The new beads are up, and it's a mixture of sorts. First there's 'Fruity' a set that includes a cherry, pear, apple, peach, blueberry and strawberry. Yum! 'Mouse Ears' are fun color switch in black, yellow and red. 'Rock Lobster' my first attempt at making one, and if I do say so myself, he's adorable! :) And for those of you looking for a 'Tide Pool' focal, I now have them in teal and all three colors are available separately. Thanks for peeking! :)

Rain, rain go away! I heard it's snowing in our valley, but haven't seen any myself yet. I better not! Baseball practice was cancelled because the field is soaked. What a way to start off Spring Break... too wet to play outside. Poor things have been moping around all day. Not that they can't find something to-do. Lord knows they have tons of toys. But do they play with them? Oh, no! They'd much rather complain about how bored they are. Good
Worked on orders today and made some new ones too that I'll share with you tomorrow.

Just got back from my hair appointment. Had my eyebrows waxed, too. And I'm feeling absolutely gorgeous. Don't you just love a trip to the salon? It really is the best!!!
OMG! Madison is making me crazy with her laundry. Just about everything was inside of and wrong side out when I did her washing last week. So, I reminded her to pull everything out before it goes into the hamper, because it such a pain in the butt to right her whole basket full. But did she listen? Oh, no! So yesterday, she spent a good 20 minutes pulling them out before I did her laundry and, boy, did she complain! "Mom, please help me!" :lol: Hope she learned a lesson otherwise she'll be doing it again, cause I refuse!

Weekend plans... My niece is here. Her sister slept over last Saturday, so tonight it's her turn. We had all three of them for a sleepover about 2 months ago, and unbeknownst to us, they'd been up all night cutting each other's hair while chewing gumballs and then hiding it in the cat litter. Oh, yes... I kid you not! We should of took the warning when my mother in law asked, "Are you sure you want to take all three?" "Sure, why not? Their mom needs a break. How much trouble could a 2, 4 and 6 year old be?" Boy, was I wrong! So now we only take one at a time.
So who's ready to hit the beach? It's been a long cold Winter in Central NY. I am so ready, so let's go! Beach Babe in aqua and blue. Oh, how I just love those! Crabby is new. How cute is he with a shell on his butt? I say, very! :)
Just two days left to take advantage of my anniversary sale, so don't delay! Thanks for checkin out what I have to offer today.

Hello :) Spring Bonnet, Passion and Passion Sliders are all new today. Thanks so much for peeking!
Tonight I have a soccer parent meeting at the Parkway. Madison is playing this year and she's so excited. Me, too. I've been a baseball mom, a basketball mom, a football mom and even a hockey mom. But this is the first time I'll be a soccer mom. Aweeee

What a fun filled weekend. Madison's birthday was Friday, so we had a little surprise party here for her. Saturday was her birthday party at the bowling alley. That was a total blast! Then Sunday, she went to two of her friend's parties. One at Chuck E. Cheese where they also sang Happy Birthday to Madison and, then, we were off to her girlfriend's house to celebrate hers, too. Whew... party, party, party! Four parties in one weekend... Crazy fun
Hey! Jordan has had three baseball practices and has it 5 home runs. One of which almost took out some one's Corvette. Yikes! The coach said, "That's what we like to see." Oh, boy, it's going to be a great season. :)
New beads tomorrow. Purple ones. :)

April 8th, 2011
Today is Madison's 8th birthday. We decorated the house with balloons, streamers and baked a cake. She's not expecting all the fuss because her party is tomorrow at the bowling alley with friends and family. Oh, boy, I can't wait. She'll be so surprised when she gets home from school. I'll be sure to post pictures on facebook.
Have a very Happy Weekend!

Happy Wednesday everyone! The two new sets are up. 'May Flowers' is a gorgeous sculpted floral set and 'Rose Chintz' a lentil set with beautiful roses and pretty white flowers. Thanks for peeking! :)

Sunday was such a beautiful day. We barbecued ribs and enjoyed a couple of cold ones while soaking up the almost 60 degree weather. But that didn't last very long, because for the past two days, it's rained. And then this morning, snow flurries. Now what's up with that?! Boy, this Central NY weather makes me crazy.
Jordan's baseball coach called Friday and their first practice is tomorrow where he'll meet his team for the first time. He's nervous and excited. Opening day is the 30th with a parade down main street from the VFW to the little league field. Once there, opening ceremonies with announcements of coaches & players. Then... HIT, RUN, and Throw competition with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards in all 4 age groups. What fun!
Two new sets today... April Showers and Twisted. Plus, two more coming tomorrow. Oh, boy, I'm on a roll. Stay tuned! :) 

April 1, 2011
Woo Hoo... Happy April! Well, we're getting there, aren't we? Warmer weather will soon be here. Yahoo!
Jordan was home sick with a barking cough yesterday. The same cough Madison and I both had recently. I still have a little bit of a sore throat, which doesn't seem to want to go away. Man, I hate the ones that just hang on for dear life. I much rather be down for a day or two, then have it gone. But oh, no, not this one.
I'm off to my niece's birthday party. She turned 6 today. Happy Birthday Zaretta!
