I apologize for being away for so long.  I have been super busy!  Last weekend I photographed a Wedding for one of my employees as she could not afford a professional photographer.  The ones she called were going to charge her $1500 to spend all day with her, which seemed really outrageous to me.  I have done a wedding or two before so I told her I would do it and not charge her anything as a Wedding present to her.  I did not supply her with any prints,  I just  burned DVD of almost 300 photos.  I wanted to share a few of my favorites here with you.  I hope you like them!

After Makeup was complete

These are just a few of my favorites.  Overall I am really pleased with how they turned out.  I finally ordered some beads so I hope to have some new work soon.  I am finished with my Holiday Bling Blog Hop piece and it has been sent off.  She should have received it by now but I have not heard anything back from her about it yet.  I hope she likes it!

Peace and <3

Creative Bead Chat

If you have never joined the Creative Bead Chat Group on Facebook,  you are really missing out!  This wonderful group was started by two of my favorite artists;  Melinda Orr and Marla James.  It has rapidly evolved from a group of a few to a group of over 1000 wonderful artists in the hand made community.  Not only do they showcase lovely eye candy in the form of jewelry but also in handmade components.  Oh!  And I cannot forget the wonderful tutorials that can often be found there as well as advice if you are ever stumped on a project.  The camaraderie there is just amazing!  Such a wonderful group of artists and I am so proud that I am included in this wonderful group. 

I am going through some health problems and the kind words of encouragement and prayers from these wonderful people are just amazing.  I really cannot thank these wonderful women enough to know that they would take time out of their busy life and think of me during my moments of trial.  They are such a giving and loving group, that I will never be able to express in mere words what they mean to me.  So thank you to each and every one of you my sisters.  I love you all!
