New Beads, Doggy Dock Diving & More...


Hi all, Happy March to you...the sun is finally out today but on Sat we had snow in Gilroy, when we had our bi- monthly meeting at the studio where we hosted Beads of Courage...lots of beads were made for the cause, thanks again to Lena Rhoeds for letting us be involved in this good cause.
Thanks to also all who came to make beads and give their support, Frank, Grace, Lena, Kathy, Sally, Kim, Barbara, Sioux, Joann, hubby, Lani, Pat, Jim, Jennifer & me, hope I am not forgetting anyone, oh yeah Mooshi also came by for a visit...photo above is of some of the beads...

In Bead News: I have a whole bunch of spring fun beads that I am listing in my shop tonight & on Wednesday...photo above is of a few of them...


In Pet News: Mooshi is still very jealous of Ari & Mr. Snuggles...hopefully one day they can all learn to get along...couple of Saturdays ago we took Mooshi Dock Diving with her class mates, all of whom are 40 pounds or larger...she had a blast, she only swam in the water once, not a diver yet, had the water been warm I think she would have jumped. Her photo below was taken by Kelly Frazer, she is very talented, if you need some great photos she is your girl...
For the rest of the time we were there she just waited on the short walk in to the pool for the bigger dogs to jump & bring in the toys...she was so funny & was having fun...

Bead Giveaway: Last week's landscape bead goes to Fireborn of SC, send address please...for this week I have a set of beads in a yummy light coral with some pearl & silver & some murinni from John...enter to win the beads on the first picture above by making a comment on this blog post...


Thanks so much for stopping by...life is good, the sun was out today...
Jelveh
Peace

Your hats are wonderful! They remind me of my mother-in-law who was an amazing milliner and seamstress...made my wedding dress!

There was a large box at her memorial for everyone to choose a hat she had made and wear for the day or even to keep in memory of her! Thanks for bringing back wonderful memories!

Awww, cute pic of Mooshie - I love dogs so thanks for sharing. Cool new beads - can't wait to see the new ones you'll be posting in Etsy :) Spring is just around the corner and not a minute too soon... Tired of being snowbound here in the midwest. Sunshine to you!

Beautiful beads. It is beginning to look like Spring in my neighborhood. We have pear trees covered with white blossoms, colorful tulips, yellow daffodils, etc.

Hi Jelveh,
I'm with the majority, LOVE the hats, they're too sweet. I'm also a huge coral lover. So many different options with a beautiful coral. The Orange Coral/Blue Nectar in the shop are beautiful yet playful and the coral with the murinni, pearls, and silver is spectacular! Sure wish Spring would hit here, my body is crying for Vitamin D. Mooshi is too cute, my dogs don't even like it to rain on them which is a bummer these days! We are flooding and restarants are floating down the river. Wild huh?
Peace, Brenda
