Hello Everyone!

Oh dear! I've been tagged by two of my dear sweet friends, Vicki of Orion Designs, and Robin of Bead Nest Designs. I wasn't sure at first what to do, but after reading both their blogs I know now I need to post the rules here and then tag seven more people. This is going around blogland and it will be fun to find out some interesing facts about people. So here are the rules.

1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by including links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Now... 7 things about me...

1. I live in the very HOT southwest desert of Arizona....and hate it very much! LOL! I've also lived in Minnesota, Louisiana, and Texas. But I was raised here in Scottsdale, Arizona.

2. My husband and I met while in high school. We started dating when I was a sophmore and he was a junior. We've now been married for 36 years. WOW, I've been with the same man for over 40 years now, including the years before we were married! I must be insane! LOL! Just kidding!

3. I Am a nurse and have worked in the medical field for over 30 years now. I'm ready to retire again, which I was for two years.

4. I have two grown daughters and five grandchildren. I LOVE being a grandma, it's the best of the best! If only I could have done that first before I had the girls!

5. Since I have a very stressful job, my stress relief is my making jewelry. I've done this for many years, just started selling my creations only about 10 years ago.

6. I love to go camping up in the mountains, hiking and fishing. Just give me my fishing pole, some worms and I'll be content for hours! And yes, I can clean a fish in no time flat!

7. I HATE to cook, but I love to bake! We are going into my farvorite time of years where I get to do a lot of baking and I give it all away to my family, and friends.

Here are some awesome bloggers, check them out!

Artisan Beaders Street Team

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all had a great week! We are going into a busy time of the year aren't we? Seems like there is something going every weekend now. I also wanted to let you all know about this awesome street team on Etsy that I'm part of. Check out our blog at, Artisan Beaders Street Team! I'm sure you'll be able to find something you are looking for. We have a Artisan Beaders Holiday Gift Guide also, be sure to check that out too!

This past week has been very busy. We went to San Diego last weekend and I think I've been playing catch up since. Our granddaighter was very ill and ended up in the hospital the week before. She has Lyme Disease and because of the rash from the bite she ended up with cellulitis. She's only five years old, so she was pretty sick for several days in the hospital. So grandma (me) had to go see her and make sure she was ok. It was also her fifth birthday. So we really enjoyed our birthday time with her and just visiting with the rest of the family.

Hope you all have a great week.

God Bless,
