I haven't had the opportunity to introduce Ms. Callie O'Malley - yes I know.... all of my pets have two names. But here is my latest treasure and she adopted me. A stray who showed up at the house and started staying as I fed her ( Fancy Feast and milk ) . Now she has been spayed and all of her health requirements have been met and she now resides at night in a huge dog crate where the pups are getting used to her. She has her own bed - blankets and tiny little litter box in the corner for a just in case. I've never been a cat person until this little gem arrived. To hear her purr in the morning is just wonderful.

It is that time again - the 2nd Annual Bead Peeps Swap 'n' Hop and our partners have been selected.
I'm excited with this partner as she is a new beader and I find this refreshing. We also have the same taste in colors - love that purple and green.
Let me introduce you to- Brandy Collier, my new partner. She is a new beadweaver and she is also planning a wedding to boot. Her blog is -http://www.bhjewelry.wordpress.com and her blog is easy to navigate using the archives to the right. He has done Kumihimo and uses seed beads throughout her work. A kindred spirit. Nothing better than a new seed bead artist. I look forward to selecting her " goody bag " and seeing what she does with it.

With the new Bead Peeps Exchange beginning - it would seem I have been remiss in blogging. Doubly so with my SCA blog too boot. So let me say I have a lot of updating to do to include The Bead Peeps 2016 Exchange, I am approved to be in the 2016 Battle of the Beadsmith -----just all kinds of beading related goodies. Over the next week I'll post photos of the new wonders in progress as a Bead Embroiderer and the Chainmaille is hopping. I need to post my SCA period piece " Tudor Chain of Office" in bead embroidery and after two competitions I have broken it apart and it shall become a new wonder. I also have the Florida Jewelry Artist Retreat coming up so stay tuned.
