Beading season

Am busily sewing beads this time of year, getting ready for the opening of the Extreme Dreams gallery.  They’ve given me a bigger display this year… the woman that makes the same damn bead necklace and sells them for way too much isn’t going to be there.  ImageImageImage

All of these pieces will be there plus a few more… as soon as Adobe Elements gets here, I’ll be able to share more.  For some reason the 15 year old version of Paint Shop Pro isn’t working any more… weird.

Solstice Yoga was beautiful

Bwahhaha, that title makes me sound so very… very yogi.  I’m not, but a group of people moving together, breathing together and singing together is a beautiful thing.  In Alaska, winter solstice matters even if we can’t see the days getting longer for a while, we know they’re not getting shorter!  Yoga stretches muscles that get short and tight from trying not to fall on ice, from shoveling snow and from tensing up when a blast of north wind comes whipping down t he river. The combination of solstice and yoga… yeah.

And here’s the “I’m going to share more of what I’m doing” photo… These are little shale rocks from a beach on the Chilkat River here in Haines.  I’ve been using my wee little diamond drill bit to make holes…tedious but rewarding! 

Next up: Maybe I’ll let Megan take a photo of me wearing my New Years Eve Masquerade ball dress!  Maybe.
