Much time has passed since my last post. I'll just say that I've been really busy traveling and learning! I've attended a bead cruise in March and a bead retreat in June. I've traveled in New Orleans, California, South Carolina, North Carolina, upstate NY, Long Island, PA, back to SC and on to Oviedo. I've remained home for the past three months with only one trip back to Oviedo. I've had my rest and I'm ready to get back on the road! Between the Bead Cruise in March and the Bead Retreat in June I've had some wonderful teacher and I've made some real pretty pieces and I've taught myself some nice techniques.
