OK., so I am NOT a good blogger...shoot me.

I am so envious of all the great bloggers out there. Make something, photograph it, list it, flickr it and blog about it and when you are done blogging, twitter it. I wish I could do that everyday.. I wish I could read everyone's blogs everyday. There are a few of them that I get emailed to me whenever a new post is written.. I would love it if everyone did that! So much easier!

I finally got my a** in gear today and starting making cabochons. In an effort to be professional for Bead and Button Show in June I made 10 of each design, with some minor variations. Nothing new though - all repeats of designs from March and for me that is torturous! I have no leaves outside for me to make impressions with and my husband wont let me break anything to make good "texture" tools, anymore! LOL! That being said - I am liking what I am making and I think u will too!

The only thing I have to share is a photograph of my Paella, from my Paella Party which took place on Sunday, April 5th. I bought the pan because for some reason I had always wanted one and when Williams and Sonoma had a sale - I bought it. Then coincidently Martha Stewart had a video of her making Paella for her crew (if you haven't seen it yet, check it out -- Martha is hammered on Sangria in the beginning of the video) With some minor alterations my Paella (seafood-less because we had 2 people allergic to shellfish and 3 that can't stand the site of it) was delicious!

Happy Beading everyone..

I will post photo's as soon as I get my first kiln load finished!

You're still sending some to me, right???? 'Cuz I need a BUNCH of those.

I know what you mean about repeating designs. That's not nearly as much fun as making new ones!

BTW, it looks like I might get to go to the B&B Show this year (I don't think we'll be moved yet). Yay!

Don't listen to MaryLou! Those should all go much further New Mexico ;p I can't believe B&B is so close! yikes.

Hi Lisa... I know JUST how you feel. I'm such a slacker sometimes. But, life being what it is - we do the best we can. I'm happy to see your posts whenever they show up.

Try not to be too hard on yourself.
