Is Tracey Feline?

Kids play around with camera phones, that we all know. My grandson showed this pic to me that his girlfriend sent to his phone. It was taken while she was on a sleepover at her friend's house. It certainly doesn't show how beautiful she is, because she IS very pretty. But it shows her playful side. She's a cute girl with a good sense of humor. I'm glad I know her.
(I put the type in red and green, just for Tracey)

Cyber Space

I have had this page done for a while, but unable to get the quiet time needed to post. Though there is not a lot of beading on my March page, a lot of thought went into what I would journal about.

When you look at my list of followers, actually there are quite a few. About 1/3 are people that I have met through blogging or on the internet that I maintain a constant cyber friendship with. We communicate frequently passing along cute jokes, well wishes and genuine concern about each other's life situations. We are a wonderful support network.

I have accumulated friendships through beading mostly, but also other interests. I have met a few gals that have uncanny coincidental same life events as I.

So that is what I am trying portray with this page. The blue background is cyber world, like the darkness of the night sky. The major stems are several of us that stay in contact, bound by the same interests, yet branching off to our own individuality. Each branch is a different color, which also depicts our diversity. I am the red. I am not anchored to the root, because I am new to the game. The golden staff that is connected to me goes off to do her own thing, yet part of her winds back around and connects to me on the other side. She is golden, because that is what her friendship is to me. You will also notice the dots that are also gold. They are the talented artists that you find on the internet that share their work and offer inspiration.

You are here, Deb, Deb and Deb. Can you find Camilla and Pam? Jeanne, Tracey, Susan, Christina, Crystal, and Lynn. You are all here. If I have forgotten to mention anyone...well you were in my thoughts while I was beading. Cyber friends, support, inspiration and encouragement.

BJP, Yahoo Groups and Blogs. What a wonderful Cyber World to be in. Don't forget Facebook.

Friendship Award

Well, I haven't had much time lately to blog, but have a lot of things to share so you'll be hearing more from me. A while back I received this blogging Friendship Award from one of my blogging friends, Crystal. The award is an honor since Crystal and I became blogging/email friends a few months ago. Its one of those friendships that grows because, well darn, we have a WHOLE lot in common. And we keep finding out more. I'm not even sure how we ever originally came in contact.

Sorry Crissy, I am not passing the award on because I don't have a whole lot of blogging friends, and I have already tagged most before, I won't bestow this honor so soon. But you all know who you are. Feel free to grab the hearts and award them to anyone you choose.

This is where you can see Crystal's blog. She has a weekly give away, but I especially like to visit on Monday Mornings when she gives you 3 chances to enter. The first is always an interesting question that I LOVE to answer.

Crystal also has a web site and Etsy Shop. Go here to visit her web site. She sells vintage beads and cameos.


These are just a few of the items I purchased. Unfortunately I recently reorganized my beads, so since the other ones I bought are no longer on my table, I can't find them. I put them in some logical place that they should be....but where?

Everybody Is Talking About The Weather

Today is Monday, April 6. Yes, April 6. This is what I woke up to.

And this....3 inches of wet snow. Thirty-One Degrees. Strong winds all day.


Here is my pretty little bird that you have all seen before. Yesterday she was mating the in bush next to this nest. Today, she's peeking out to see if its worth coming out to find seeds.
Friends all around the midwest contacted me today to see if I had the same crappy weather that they did. (Except my friend Deb, who lives in So. Cal. SHE had to tell me how warm it is there and that she had to open all her windows to let the fresh air in. Thanks Deb!)
Our forecast for tonight is Lake Effect snow from winds coming from the north across Lake Michigan. Three more inches at least. Snow again on Wednesday.
I am getting really antsy to get outside in the garden!! I want to see frogs and humming birds.
