Haven’t written for a long while Saturday, Mar 19 2016 

News flash…. I am back …. sort of. I have had my ups and downs, but still here and hoping to get back to creating bead woven treasures. My main problem has been fear of the unknown, the unknowable future, but luckily have good people to help me. Friday evening a nurse said something to me that really helped me to cope. God bless all nurses! They are truly giving and wonderful people. No, I’m not in a hospital. Sipping on Peets Hibiscus tea. More to come!


A good feeling Monday, Dec 14 2015 

Yesterday was a very good day…. I sold a lot of inventory (jewelry with turquoise and lampwork) of all different types. My work was appreciated. I was selling at Portland Center Stage in downtown Portland. Sometmes I feel down and not too talented, but yesterday proved me wrong. There is always room for improvement, but I think I had good items to sell and they got their just deserts. I feel accomplished. I think it was good, partly because the people who came to the sale are theatre buffs and appreciate the artful and the different and the dramatic. They also value one of a kind pieces. Thanks, Portland Center Stage!
