Life Gets In The Way

I am so sorry I have not posted in so long.  Some times "life just gets in the way".   The issues that have kept me from posting are all resolved so I promise to do a better job and post here at least once a week.  Many things have happened since my lasting posting. Fortunately all are good! 

My current web site will be eliminated some time in the next month or two.  I am working on a new site that will offer lots of new and exciting things for those of you who design and make jewelry or simply like to collect hand crafted beads.  

The new site is a combined effort with my daughter (Tammy).  It will be known as "Flame Kissed Art Glass II".  She makes scrumptious hand dyed/painted silk ribbons of superior quality.   Our new site will offer ribbons, lampwork beads and hand made sterling silver findings. 

For the time being you can view her ribbons here:

To introduce you to our new endeavors we are offering a give-away.  Actually will be three give-a-ways.  To be eligible all you have to do is become a follower and leave a comment. If you are already a follower please post a comment and request to be included in the drawing. Winners will be chosen by a random generator. 

Our first give-away will take place Sept. 19th, the second on Sept. 26th and the third Oct. 3th.
