Apartment Living with Prejudice

It doesn't matter whether you like me or not. It's not part of your job description. Being hateful towards me accomplishes nothing. Carrying a vendetta for a year is ridiculous. Especially when you asked me to do something unethical and I declined.

Your job is to make sure we abide by the terms of our lease and pay our rent on time. 

Watching my every move from your apartment accomplishes nothing. Your hatred towards me is wasted. I do not care.

You represent a property rental corporation with a big name. The games you play put them to shame. It doesn't do much for their name or reputation.

When I asked a simple question you turned it into an accusation and try to ruin my good name. Shame on you.

Purple Glory

This is the second project I made using Czechmates Triangle and Lentil beads.  I don't know what took me so long to pull these beautiful beads out and give them a try.

The pattern Golden Glory Bracelet is by Nicole Starman. The pattern is free and you can download it on the Bead & Button website.

Classe for Bead Cruise 2015

Where in the world is Beverly?
My favorite saying is "I've been hanging out like a toad at home." Contemplating life. In that time I finished my Bead Cruise projects for Bead Cruise 2015. Can you believe next year will be our 10th anniversary! It sold out within the first two weeks! Heather does such an awesome job hosting this event. 

These are the classes I will be teaching.

Let the Starfish be your guide as you capture a ceramic cabochon by Suburban Girl Studios. You will create a bead embroidered bezel with tiny crystals that sparkle within the netting accented with a starfish. A Twisted Herringbone rope with a starfish clasp completes the design. 

Surround a Lunasoft cabochon with a peyote bezel. Ruffle accents with crystals and pearl nestle inside of the folds.  A brass chain completes the design .

Wear one, wear two or dress them up with another bracelet.  You will love these bangles made with Cubic Right Angle Weave. Swarovski pearls and crystal complete the design.

Family Time and Birthdays

I am happy and sappy so I am going to let you know: My heart is always in Michigan with family. Rosanne had a birthday party for me over Labor Day. Thank you Rosanne!
I was so thankful not to share turning a year older with a hurricane!

Rosanne made home-made Margarita Pizzas with fresh basil, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Yumm!

There was cake and ice cream
and presents!

The best birthday party ever surrounded by my Son and Daughters.

And sister Susie.

Plus all of my grandchildren

And my sweet Momma too!

My Birthday was a day
I will always Treasure.
