To survive the Apocalypse I need a Motorcycle

I constantly have dreams about end of earth kind of stuff. You know like aliens overtaking the earth, zombies, killer viruses, hey it could happen.
From gathering all the information (movies) it always seems the highways get jammed with cars and everyone is stopped and wandering around. 
Hence the motorcycle. You can ride in between cars and on the side of roads etc. The only thing I haven't figured out is that everyone will be trying to knock me off said motorcycle. Got to work on that.

Most Fun Evah!

Where have I been? Teaching art kids camps at work of course. It has been a lot of work but sooo much fun. After the morning session the kids have a break before lunch, so we set up a four square court.
Oh my gosh I forgot how much fun four square is! The kids are having a blast and so are we.

We had a party at work tonight with pizza, beer, cupcakes and Yea, you know it, FOUR SQUARE! That's right a bunch of us played for a couple of hours. I laughed so hard I peed alittle! 

Remember those summer nights playing kick the can and a HUGE game of hide and go seek? It was the whole neighborhood and we stayed out until dark. No parents watching our every move, no TV, no video games, just plain ole fun. Later we would catch fire flies, and have Popsicles, and fall into bed exhausted. Good times.
What were your favorite games growing up?

I am a Featured Artist!

The interview that I did with Beading Times just came out. Follow the link to read all about my journey! Thanks so much to Beading Times for choosing me.
I have been super busy teaching 10-11 yr. old kids how to make glass beads this past week. It is defiantly a challenge. 
Back with pictures from Bead & Button soon.

Off to Bead and Button!

I have neglected my blog due to getting ready for Bead and Button. But it was well worth it. I have a butt load of beads to bring and a great class to teach. What some great eye candy? The first necklace is a graduated disk necklace made with Clio and Kalypso silver glass. It took forever to make, but it is stunning. 
Ready for more? This one is also a graduated disk necklace with Multicolor light and drop dead gorgeous turquoise disk. I will have both of these necklaces with me on the "Meet the Teachers" night at Bead and Button which is this Wed. June 8th. Come and see them in person! I am off! See you all soon.
