When Girlfriends get together, magic happens.

This last weekend I took a last minute trip to Tennessee to visit with some of my bead making girlfriends.  Kaye, Susan, Angie, Vern, Fay, and Marte.

The very best part of all of us getting together is the fun and laughter.  Of course we all get no sleep what-so-ever, but a little sleep deprivation is a small price to pay for all the fun.  Mostly we just ate, drank, and torched.  Everyone shares techniques and challenges everyone else to try new things or to just torch and have a good time.

I have been in busy production mode for a good three months or so, so when I walked in the studio, I asked the girls, what should I make?  Then Susan pipes up with “I dreamt you turned your fairies into Queens”.  She had all kinds of ideas including Mary Queen of Scots-holding her head in her arms after being beheaded.  I’ll have to do something thinking on that one, but sounds fun!

So I made a queen.  The Queen Red Bitch to be exact and her princesses.  Angie thinks she is queen and loves red.  Don’t worry she named herself the Queen Bitch.  I also made a few others, but don’t have decent picture of them yet, as all the princess and the queens left with someone else other than me last weekend.  All the girls deserve a queen or princess of there very own, now don’t they?

So I came home and made the Christmas Queen.  More Queens and Princesses are coming, and maybe even a King, but I need to get caught up on orders, which will be very very soon, before I can play with my Royal Family.  The Christmas Queen in listed on etsy at a great price (her cape flashed uneven and is transparent and opaque).

This is why I love girlfriend time.  Magic always happens.

I’ve been tagged twice…

Okay, so I have been tagged twice now, so I guess it is time to tell you seven things about me you may not know.  My taggers are Kaye Husko and Torch By NIght.  Hummm…

1.  I love making beads, but don’t really care for making jewelry.  I get frustrated way too easily and almost never wear jewelry, so why bother?

2.  While I love to read and will read almost anything, I love paranormal and fantasy, with a romantic element.  I am almost done writing one.  I’d love to be a published writer, in addition to a bead maker.

3.  I usually speak without thinking and sometimes put my both feet in my mouth.  Oops. This is why I enjoy online communication.  I get a chance to reread what I’ve typed.

4.  I hate shopping.  All shopping.  I’d rather shop online, even for clothes.  And the last time I was in a Lowes, I swear I almost passed out.  I really, really dislike that place.

5.  I actually admitted to two of my high school girlfriends I watch Gossip Girls.  Of course one of them admitted it first and now I am telling all of you.

6.  I am a known plant killer, even cactus.

7.  I actually do work in my pajamas.

Now I am suppose to tag seven more people.
