Hi all! 

I'm moved into my new apartment!  Actually, I've officially been moved for like, 4 weeks? I think.  But I've only felt really settled for the last few. So close enough.  I'm moved! I love the new place.  It's smaller, but I love that.  It's in a quieter area, with lots more trees and nature and stuff. :love:

Also, last week I was at Niagara Falls, Canada with my mom!  It was amazing and inspiring, and I was so happy to be sharing all of that with my mom, who I adore. I'll upload some of my photos from the trip soon!  

Now I need to really, seriously get back to beading. Except not too seriously.  I'm taking off a quarter from teaching so that I can get back to doing what I want to do, not what I feel like I need to do.  So for the rest of the year, I might be posting crazy, weird stuff.  Or it might be genius.  There's no telling!  Isn't that exciting?  

Oh, and random fact- Drew and I have been together for 8 years now!  Weird. So weird. But wonderful!  8 years ago, we were in the middle of the summer camp that we met at, working as camp counselors and escaping for dirty sex in the woods every chance we could get (seriously- dirty, with mosquitos biting us.)

How are all of you doing?

I am a beaded flower artist who specializes in unique statement jewelry.

I love (in no particular order) animals, fleece blankets, pancakes, nature, beads, my boyfriend Drew, sunshine, diet coke, chewy fruity candies, constructive critisism, cheese, swarovski crystals, "Survivor", and hot showers. I don't like wet socks, mosquito bites, mushrooms, scraping ice off my car, dirty fingernails, pecans, and laziness.

I've been beading since I was a little girl. I liked being able to make jewelry to match my clothes, and there was always something special about beads. :) I started french flower beading after coming across a picture of it in a library book. It was love at first sight, so I taught myself how to do it with books and things and have been enjoying it ever since!

Shooting arrows at what? You better not hurt any little animals. I'll divorce you before we even marry. :giggle:

Thank you so much for the watch! I love all your bead work! Totally jealous of your skill - I wouldn't be able to do what you can in a million years.

Thanks! I saw your watercolor robot on Epbot and LOVED it! Then I checked out the rest of your gallery and loved all of that too! I will be going back to it soon- I didn't have time to look through it all!

hi, I am a beaded flower artist too, but I am new to deviant art and I was looking around trying to find some other beaded works on here and found you and I saw that you have Crohns (I have a jpouch with active UC) so when I read that I thought, how cool it was to meet not alone someone who enjoys the art of french beading, but someone that has a similiar condition as I do:) Anyway, I love your flowers, they are beautiful and if you ever wanna chat I would love to hear from you :)
