Back To My Beading Blog After A Nearly 4 ½ Months Leave Of Absence

After my post regarding my bracelet collection, I took a long hiatus from blogging. Even though I have sold several bracelets (customized bracelets and a couple of pairs of earrings too) since my last post, I also decided to cut back on beading in favor of devoting more time and attention to other aspects of my life, being the most important aspect, my autistic daughter, Angelina.

Angelina is the light of my life and the center of my world. And, even though she is autistic, Angelina is very loving and very funny. I spent much of the summer months going places with her, playing with her, and just taking the time to get to know her better. Our time together also renewed my appreciation for her and the struggles that she has in her life.

Our summer together flew by very fast. Angelina loves school. She was very excited to be going back. She had missed her friends and her school day routine. I, on the other hand, was not as excited about school resuming for Angelina. I have to admit that it was with some sadness that I put her on the bus and waved good-bye to her on her first day back at school.

So, now she is back in school and I am back to beading nearly every day. I have created several beautiful necklaces and chokers. I am also in the process of learning how to use my new digital camera. I hope to have pictures of my latest creations posted on my picturetrail site very soon. I have also been working on creating a website and will soon have a Blujay store.

I must admit, over the past several months I have come to see that my life is truly blessed. I have a beautiful daughter that I love with all my heart, and I have been blessed with the ability to express myself through my beadwork.

I invite you to visit my picturetrails website, “Bead Between The Lines.” You just might find something that you like, or something that inspires you!! And while you are there, please, take a moment to sign my guestbook
