Drumroll Please......

Whew!  It's been a VERY long time since my last post.  I won't make the excuse that I've been busy because everyone is busy.  I haven't been up to snuff so between running the shop and working my other job I've just been plain old exhausted after 5 years of 70 to 90 hour work weeks.  I have some more medical tests going on this upcoming week and I'm hoping that what they find may help solve some of my physical problems and get me creating again. 

Ok, enough about me personally and on to the BEADS!  I do have some very exciting news to share and if you have a subscription to Bead and Button magazine, you will have already seen my project.  I made the cover (just a small corner, but the cover) after submitting my very 1st stitching piece to the publication. 

Yep, that's me up there on the left.  I have totally fallen in love with Tilas and this idea just popped into my head at the paying job.  I'm fortunate that I have a boss who is accepting of the few minutes it takes me to sketch out my ideas on sticky notes! 

I hope that all has been well in Blogland.  I have lots to catch up on in the blogosphere and it may take me awhile!

Have a wonderful week!
