Cathy and Hayley join my Army Conference

Great Lakes Army Recruiting Battalion End of Year Conference sometime in the 1980's. (Judging by Cathy's dress) Hayley and Cathy joined me I think it was held in Sugar Loaf Ski Resort northern MI. Hayley looks so sweet we had a great time. What a great memory.

I just found Gotye and not sure if I love the videos or the music more. This is the most fresh exciting music I have found since Thievery Corporation. Somebody I used to know is a great experience.

Valentine Cards for 2012

I saw this die cut and fell in love It is from Memory Box and called La Rue Heart. Here are my first two cards using this die. I'm sure I will use it for weddings, anniversary's and of course valentine's day.

This card allows the recipient to remove the heart for any use.
So for a variation and drama I used glitter paper and a two tone effect.

First Dog

So here is my first attempt at dogs.

Lampwork Cats

Here are my first attempts to make lampwork cats. They are an OK first attempt but are not as easy as I had hoped.
I'm making turtles for a bead exchange in March. These are my speciality and I'm way more happy with how they turned out. I love double Helix!!!

2012 Possibilities

What if this year 2012, meets all the expectations the profits imagined? Are we doomed? Perhaps we are on the brink of a human evolution growth spurt. Maybe we will experience a period of change that once the dust clears leaves us better off. Something is up, too many arrows are pointing to a historic event. My life is at a point where I am evaluating past experiences for relevancy. Why am I here in this time of earths history when change is afoot?

Perhaps 6 times the planet has culled it's life in it's 4.5 billion year history. They think 97% of life forms have been eradicated leaving only %3. Whoa? Is it random? Are we just lucky to be a part of the %3.

So if we have less than one earth year left how will we spend it?

This is my concern.
