Wilma My Other Dog

I think the best word to best describe Wilma would be, loyal. She loved her family and was the happiest when she was following one of the seven kids around. At age 16 she passed. She tolerated many babies loving on her and snuck bits of food from their unsuspecting hands. She always squealed with delight when I came to visit, mostly because I always brought her a treat in my luggage. This gentile and sweet creature will be missed by her family and set the bar high for companionship. It won't be the same without her sweet face welcoming me. I know her family is crushed but will see her again.

Hawaiian Necklace

I needed an entry for the Kentucky Crafted application and this theme has been in the making for some time. It's actually an upgrade from a necklace I made a while ago. This is what I will wear to my next Luau.

Hawaiian Beads

Living on the torch as usual. Especially dedicated as its 103 degrees in Kentucky. Working on a set for my Kentucky Crafted entry.

As always my bead dog is close at hand. Its been so hot we can't walk her very far and being such a high energy dog she jumps on the treadmill.

Craft fair necklaces

I am turning my lampwork beads into necklaces using a combination of seed beads and crystals.

2nd Batch of Robins

It's the first day of July and Mom Robin has been guarding her nest for a few days. I snuck a peek and found 3 little ones. The nest is in a hard place to photograph so the photos are not the best quality. Still it is
pretty exciting to have a second batch of babies.
