Happy Spring!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter/ Spring break!

Everything around here is so far ahead of schedule (except me of course), the wisteria is in full bloom, a month early, the irises are budding, the daffodils are just about gone, as are the cherry blossoms and flowering magnolias. I feel like I have almost missed spring entirely with all my travelling about!

Since last we spoke, I went away to the Art and Soul retreat in Virginia Beach from 2/29-3/5 and had 7 fantastic classes.
Came home , unpacked, repacked and left bright and early on 3/6 and headed back to Florida for the last hurrah and to close up the house for the season and returned home on 3/21.
While down there, we took a trip to St. Pete and met up with Barbara Lewis and her husband Jim for a delicious Thai lunch and a driving tour of the area and got to see her new studio/shop in progress.
Caught up with work at the restaurant ( Ok , sort of) and then headed out to Leesburg Virginia for a chalk painting workshop with Annie Sloan on 3/31.
Picked up my grandkids on 4/4 and headed to the beach for the afternoon as they started their Easter break and kept my grandaughter for 3 nights and days during her break, she returned home on 4/7.
Now I am getting ready to head out to Beadfest Spring with my daughter where she will be taking her first jewelry making classes, the trip is my gift to her for her birthday. I am so looking forward to this time together, I even bought her a set of tools of her own!
I hope to see some of you there!
When I return I will post pictures of all of my adventures, most of which are STILL in the camera! Ha!
It's been a fun ride but I am looking forward to getting back to my regular routine ( whatever that is these days!) and putting into action all of these creative ideas I have filling up my head!
Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!


  1. So glad to hear from you and sooooo jealous you get to go to Bead Fest you must take a lot of pictures!!! XOXOX

  2. You're one busy lady! Sorry I missed you at BeadFest! Hope you didn't do too much damage! LOL

  3. Laura, it was so good to see you again at Bead Fest, and to meet Lindsay. Dinner, icecream, and just hanging out was really great......and getting the chance to talk to you was just what I needed. Thank you for being the supportive person that you are - I know you really get me. :-) It was a fun weekend & so nice to see you and Lindsay sharing your love of beading. She was beautiful, all decked out in her new creations.
