March Madness

I feel so lucky to have a job I absolutely love and to be able to provide a safe, fun place where people can come together, be themselves and to create beautiful jewelry. Yesterday was open bead day and we also celebrated 3 birthdays (they were feeling very ROYAL ... check out the headwear they brought with them). We had a total of 15 ladies show up to work on projects and to help these ladies celebrate the beginning of another great year...... happy birthday to Jackie, Pat & Colleen.

Empty Bowls

Today was the 9th annual Empty Bowls charity event held in Henderson. What a great idea this is ... art students/clay artists from Las Vegas work hard to throw thousands of ceramic bowls. This event is open to the public, this was my first year to go and I can tell you it won't be my last time. You first walk into the room where 6 foot tables are in a line with hundreds of beautiful hand made bowls. You can pick as many as you like, each bowl is $12.00 then you take your empty bowl to the soup line where you have your choice of homemade soup and bread. This event also had a silent auction and a live auction and all the money goes to the Catholic Charity for the soup kitchen to feed the homeless here in Las Vegas. Thanks Tanya for telling me about this event!!

Greg and I had an opportunity to go to Dublin Ireland when we lived overseas and just fell in love with it. It is so green and everywhere you look you would think .... I have seen that postcard. The people are warm and friendly and it is a trip I will never forget. Eva Cassidy has a beautiful voice and in celebration of St. Patricks day this month I wanted to share it. Enjoy!!

Yesterday I went to Bass Pro shop to try to find an alternative to the 8lb Power Pro since it is almost impossible to find anywhere on line anymore. I ran across the Stealth Camo Braid .... a really great find. It is the same braided line as the Power Pro but the nice thing is it is a blend of green, brown and tan color. I bought it in the 8lb and 10lb and brought it home to test out. I used the 8lb on a project I am currently working on .... It's really nice. I found the 8lb to be a bit thinner than that of the 8lb Power Pro but thicker than the 6lb. I think it might become my new favorite beading thread.
