Giveaway at Beaducation!!!

I purchased the book "Stamped Metal Jewelry" by Lisa Niven Kelly recently.

This is a whole new world for me in Jewelry making, and I've been buying up the TOOLS
to get started--letter sets, design stamps, dapping tools, and hammers. Just had to buy two new hammers,
brass ones weighing 2 lbs!

Beaducation blog is hosting a giveaway here.

Creating New Space

I've been away from my blog for about six months now.
It's time to reconnect.

Last year was difficult in many ways,
so this year I wanted to recreate my creative space.

So, first of all, a new blog background and header
with JW Waterhouse beauties!
I love Pre-Raphelite art.
This was perfect.

For the most beautiful blogger backgrounds ever,
go to Kirsi's site at

Now I'm also recreating my home office/guest room/jewelry room/writing room.

The colors will be teal, apple green, white, and brown.
So far I have the comforter.
Painting the walls apple green will take place next week.

Notice the lovely new silver lamp from TJ Maxx, my favorite store!

The grand cat Abigail likes the new comforter!

I look forward to working in this new space.

Hopefully many more books will be written here.
