I feel as if I am beginning again. However, I have so many things in place from when I really first began this creative journey.
I am beginning again, but I am not starting from scratch.
The trials of the past have given me perseverance I had not idea I possessed.
I am still recovering from a major life change but I am allowing my life to become better and trying very hard to not become bitter... I am finding that I am not having to try so hard at it lately.
I have hope.
I have a new vision.
I have wisdom to stop and pray.
I have Grace.
I have Mercy.
And most of all, I have love.
I have the love of so many sweet supporters and friends and family. People who constantly encourage me and remind me of why I create. Why I love to teach people. Why I get out of bed each morning.

It was Bead Fest's second year in Arlington, Texas and my very first time teaching for them. The very first year I volunteered to help Bead Fest as a Dallas Bead Society member. It was then that I wore my design and was asked to submit it as a class proposal. It is a special design and brings back a lot of happy times.
I will be teaching at Bead Fest this year in March. I am offering a beginner's peyote class and a two day workshop. The workshop is "Beaded Art Dolls" and the peyote class is "Peyote Pearl Princess".
I love the romantic feel of these earrings. The old street lights of a time forgotten can be remembered every time you wear these. You can almost hear the clip-clop of horse hooves as the carriages roll down the streets. Maybe it's a stretch of the im…
