My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Gift for my friend Leila



I completed my first necklace while in Washington. Thanks to my sister and friend who helped me.  I will tell you it has already been given as a gift to my dear friend Leila. ( She  picked out the beads and "loved them")  I made the aqua Russian Spiral bracelet for her too.that I posted earlier....so I went back to the bead store and bought them, after she went home and  then added the copper beads and clasp. I hope she likes the finished necklace.  She will be surprised for sure. I have  must  get it in the mail today.
It was fun to do and I will  be doing more.. I am finding this to be a very relaxing hobby and will be spending more time in bead stores. I did get to go to the "Ship Wreck" Bead Store in Lacey Washington. OMG! what a store..I have never seen so many beads in one place. Good thing I do not live closer.. ( I do however have their catalog access!)
