Sari ribbon

Well I just received my Sari Ribbon from http://www.bsueboutiques.com/ and am very excited! It is sooo pretty. I just love all the rich colors.  Now what to do with it?!? 
I am going to participate in the Sari Ribbon Party Blog hop and want to do something really fun.  I am thinking of making some polymer clay beads and using vintaj brass, maybe some chain....who knows, the ideas are still just rolling around in my head...lol!
I still need to spend some more time trying to figure out this whole blog thing.
Have a great day!

My first blog!!

Well here goes my very first blog post ever!!! Wow I really feel like I have just moved up in the world.  I never would have dreamed that I would be blogging, but my passion for making jewelry and the desire to share and learn from others has made me realize that I must stop living in the dark ages :) and join  the rest of my peers in the world of blogging.  I have been creating jewelry for almost 10 years now.  I was a slow starter and did just a bit of stringing.  I then began to take lessons from my local bead store and started bead weaving.  That is when my love for beading really started to blossom and has just continued to grow and grow and grow!  My DH really wishes that it would stop growing, at least for a little while!  The past two years I have really made my self get out of my comfort zone and push myself to do things a bit differently.  The first thing that I gained from all that pushing and growing was I finally learned to read patterns!! I also discovered that I love working with mixed media.  I am going to continue to push myself out of "the box" and who know where I might end up.
