Beading My Way

I have never beaded with the trends.I bead my way,why?,because my creativity comes at different times with different ideas.I have done alot of beading in traditional Native American styles and some were what I call just in my head.If I can see it in my head I can usually get the beads to do what I want them to.As all things we do when we create something it has to come from an idea ,a vision.Yep thats me!

Made in the U.S.A.

I am a big believer in supporting local farmers and crafters(hi Katie) and people who are here in our country.I think we should all buy from within our America.It gives someone a chance to help not only theirselves but others in their community.Over many years and I mean many,I have  seen some people who were not only  talented but down right had a gift.If we want America to thrive keeping American made products here in the U.S. is our responsiblity by supporting our fellow Americans in their endevours.So next time you run across someone making  products,give them a chance and hey give a little extra if need be,look at how much it going to cost you if you buy from overseas.Support U.S.A. Products.Enough said!

And a mad dog

And a mad dog

He was happy to get home.This was his first long trip and he had fun but when he was ready to go home he wanted to be there already.He enjoyed the lake and sniffing all the new smells though.

Watch what you wish for -you might just get it

As some of you know we are NOT moving back home.The new tax rules will be keeping us here for another year.I’m not mad or upset,I really didn’t want to move back but it was a good idea at the time.Instead we are going to buy a new truck this week sometime because our old one is on it’s last leg.Some of you know how that is. Anyway we have to stay here to pay it off.But by this time next year or close to it we will move but not back east.I have been scouting out some property in New Mexico again and have found some possibilities.I have always wanted to move there near Albuquerque and want to see the balloon festival and the intertribal powwow.I also am looking forward to going to Santa Fe to the large market they have there.The truck we are looking at will come in handy when we get it.It will save a buttload on moving expense cause we are going to get a trailer to haul our stuff in.Rion(my dog) will have the back seat(it has cab space) to himself and I can’t wait til he gets to go places with us.He is sooo bored today poor thing,he loves to ride.Heck I want to go places too.Our little pickup has been good to us but it’s time to retire it.This week will be getting my pots ready to do some planting.We ordered a dwarf pear tree and have it coming sometime this week too.I’m going to get some tomatoe plants started and have no idea what else.We aren’t allowed here to plant a garden so anything I do plant has to go into pots.

I am very happy with the choice I have made,something was telling down deep no and I really try to listen what it’s saying.My family is a little disappointed I’m not coming home but they understand the reason.We will just have to do more on our own and learn as we go along.
