My Craft Corner Feature!

Hi all! Just wanted to share with you a bit of exciting personal promotional news. A few weeks ago, I joined a new online social networking site for crafters called My Craft Corner. It’s a delightful site with very nice people who love to share their crafting with like-minded folks. It’s new and growing and well worth a look.

So why am I babbling about this to you? Well, every Wednesday, the front page of the site shows a new “Featured Crafter of the Week.” And this week? It’s me! It has a photo of one of my necklaces (in fact, it's the one pictured above), links to my personal page on My Craft Corner, my Etsy store, and this blog. What a tremendous honor! I've never been on the front page of any website. (I'm still hoping for a front-page appearance on Etsy.) Check it out at And hey, sign up while you're there. You won't regret finding such a terrific group of online friends.

Weekend Creativity

I just added three new necklaces to my Etsy shop -- and I'm very proud of all three! I found the most fabulous lampwork beads in an Etsy shop I located on Twitter and turned them into two very fun necklaces. The green and pink one I named "Wonderland" because it just seemed so Alice-at-the-tea-party-like to me. The black, pink, and green one just appealed to the flower lover in me.

The third necklace is my homage to the sea -- the nautical necklace I've wanted to create for awhile in tribute to Titanic. No, it doesn't sink; I'm just a Titanic freak! (Don't ask. It's a weird obsession.) Check out this and my other designs at
