We decided to travel to Springfield a little early for Thanksgiving because my oldest nephew, Christopher D. Rogers, got married on Saturday, November 19, 2011.  He married Sonya Jones who is a teacher.  They have dated for over three years and I am so happy and at peace about it.  Each one of them is so lucky to have the other one.

We have three Rottweilers which I refuse to board unless it is a matter of life and death, and this wasn't, so the way we figured out to make the trip was to drive our small RV camper and our pickup.  That way we could transport all three of them and also we have a place to help manage them while we stay at Mom's in her backyard.

Since we drove both vehicles, we decided to stay in Springfield through Thanksgiving.  We have a very large family and it is always a large gathering.  I didn't bring my jewelry makin's so won't have anything new until after Thanksgiving but my shop is chocked full of goodies for your Christmas shopping.

Natalie Pappas Beads

Natalie Pappas makes gorgeous beads.  Each one is a work of art.
She just blogged about this set of beads saying "These came out of the kiln this morning."
It's like they just crawled out one day! 
Aren't they gorgeous!  I have several of her beads but always have to make myself use them in my projects because I have a tendency to want to hoard them.
She sells these wonderful things in her etsy shop.  Check it out at

Joining the world of blogging.....

Hello.  I have decided to start a blog of my own.  As I post this, I don't even know how to set it up at all other than this very basic format.  I wanted to start a journal of my journey designing jewelry and thought this would be a good place to do it.  I have met so many beautiful and beautifully creative people on this journey and I need a place to process the whole experience.  I guess I will do that here.  Bear with me as I work my way through this.
