We aka Funky Monkey Girls, have a couple of shows coming up in Florida.  I will be posting more information when I get the information from them.

I am taking some classes here and there.  Last Monday, I learned how to saw metal and file it.  I can NOT make a circle for the life of me, they all look like eggs.  I always say that jeweler's are part birds!  :)  They are automatically attracted to shiny things aka birds.  Lame, I know.

My back has been pretty bad these last couple of days.  Bent over and bam that was it.  sigh....

I am staying with my folks in Florida...long story and it is actually a good thing :)

Leather here and there and everywhere

It is interesting how you can create with a small bit of beads that you have handy cause you are a tad poor right now.  Mom and I are getting addicted to all those leather bracelets that are out there.  I have been noticing them for a year or so and I kind of kick myself for not making them sooner but oh well.

Tired eyes today so off I go to play with Stephie who is begging for attention, goofy girl!

Well, I know it has been ages and ages since I have last updated!  I got rid of my house, packed up my house in Tucson and worked at a Christian camp in northern MN.  During this time, Stephie has been hanging out in Florida being taken care of by her grandpa and grandma. 

I am back in Florida living with my folks.  oh yea.  Not my idea of fun but a HUGE blessing because my working at that camp was my ministry for the summer and a lack of much mola coming my way.

I am hoping and praying that the Lord is guiding me back home to Minnesota.  I miss my friends a lot and need to show them the new me so to speak.

If anyone is still reading this, I do need some help.  I am wanting to learn how to do lost wax techniques etc to go a different direction with my jewelery.  I can not find an accredicted school in MN to get a degree in it but I am wondering, if I should get an art degree to get some of the basics, drawing etc re learned so I can get financial aid and take other clasees at this time as well.
