well it has been a month since I posted last ...and now I am working on finding the new life planned for me. So many things happened but one of the good things is I am able to concentrate on my art for awhile. Not just my art quilts but my jewelry. Many of you don't know I used to own the largest bead store on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and spent over 5 years teaching everyone I could that they could make jewelry that it wouldn't bite them. From young kids age 4 and up to a rocket scientist who did have a little bit of trouble thinking outside the box but I got her there.

One thing about my store was we did our classes whenever you walked in the door and we would help you. It was such a blast. It is the way all bead stores should be run and because of my store many more are run this way today. I closed my store in 2005 when the shopping center was sold and before I could relocate John got sick.

So for now I am selling my art through a local farmers market and doing pretty good. I love meeting the people one thing will never change as a person I am a people person I love talking to people. I get to be outside for 4 hours each Saturday ...and just enjoy the day

Now is my creative time I am using it to heal and am wanting to get people involved in being creative again. There is so much out there to do and play and work at....So be prepared there will be new things happening on here...and it will be for the better. The pictures are some pieces I did and sold when I had my beadstore ...it off loom beadweaving....and I love doing it .
John and I's last trip to LasVegas I bought a ton(his words when he ended up having to carry my bag thru the airport because it was too heavy for his old lady
Walk in the day and dream your dreams for you never know when life will leave you wondering where did it go.

Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
