Wow, what a great Welcome!

Thanks for the warm welcome to the world of blogging!

I feel like I jumped into the deep end of the pool when I thought I was wading in the shallow end.  I still have to figure out how to resize my header photo and guess I better post pictures of my beads:)

This morning I was sitting outside soaking in the hot tub because my shoulder was sore and I wanted to relax it before I sat down to the torch.  I wished I had a video camera because high up there was a steady stream of seagulls flying past in a long line.  This happens during spring migration and you wonder where they suddenly all come from and you can't predict when it will happen.  It was pretty amazing.

Any advice you have on blogging is greatly appreciated.  I did jump in without thinking about it too much, just thought it was time do it.

The beads in this necklace are made out of swizzle sticks - yes the kind that you use to mix your drink.  The glass was amazing to work with and  I had no bubbles in it either.




  1. Hi Wendy,
    Welcome to the blogging world! I found you from Jane's blog. I did the same thing you did, just jumped in with no clue what I was doing. I am still learning and tweaking the blog but it is so much fun.
    Have fun and have a wonderful week!

  2. Ooohhh, I remember when you made that necklace, it is fantastic - and mostly hollow beads too!

  3. Hi Wendy, I too found you via Janes blog! Very cool beads made from swizzlesticks. Best of luck with your new blog!
