Home and Settling in...
Final show is done! Unpacking and inventory, organizing and planning underway. Zoom Classes & Destash Sales, Summer Retreat, Open Studio, New Designs and more! So much for retiring! Ha!

I'm working on the website to update what is still available until the sale. Many kits are already sold out. If an order is placed for a kit that is out of stock, I will check my inventory to see if it can still be made, but that will depend on the fringe bead accent inventory and I'll let you know.

A little slice of heaven, the view from my office out over the wintery fields.

This sale will feature the final remaining Complete Amulet Bag Kits I have from my current designs. These have all the fringe and necklace beads to make the complete design shown. Many only have one kit left, some have a few more, 35% Off retail.

There are a lot of fun Bracelet and Necklace Kits available that I've created for classes around the country. They're ALL 50% OFF !!! Perfect to make quick gifts, a fun afternoon project, or for those learning to bead.

Celebrity Cruise Line ::: Celebrity Solstice

We're traveling on the luxurious Celebrity Cruise Line this time to some new locations. Icy Strait Point, Dawes Glacier and Endicott Arm are on this route. Click on the ship name above to see pictures of this amazing ship.

Round trip from Vancouver, BC with some fun 1-2 day PRE-Cruise tours to be offered. This is a beautiful part of the country to explore if you've never been here, so taking the time to enjoy being in Vancouver and the surrounding areas is worth the extra couple of days.

Welcome to the Tetons! Located in the scenic Teton Valley in southeast Idaho. Just between the West and South Entrance of Yellowstone National Park.

If you're visiting the area you can schedule an Open Studio day, or come and stay with us at our AirBNB and explore this amazing part of the country at the same time. Yellowstone takes at least 3 days to not rush through and enjoy the sights. Reserve enough days to feed your need to create and take a break from all the driving through the park.

In the studio you'll have space to bead, learn applique quilting, bead pattern designing, drawing, and more.
Must be booked at least two weeks in advance.

Kimono I - Spring

The second in my kimono series for my new book "Four Seasons Kimono".

I love how the fringe and necklace came out. Playing with peyote tube beads and linking them for a waterall of strands, and fun with the lower fringe with loopy overlapping strands.

The colors in this are so hard to photograph, soft frosted spring greens and yellow with the cream and rich reds of the poppies. The kimono has pale lavendar and frost silverlined white patterning and the color block is actually a rich deep marigold color with a sprinkling of tangerine accents. If you've ever seen any of my other designs in person, you know the photos on the website just don't do them justice.




Travelling Bead Boards
All boards include binder clips to hold on lid. If you have problems with your hands, you can also pick up the self sticking velcro straps and use at least two straps, one for the length and width to hold it shut.

This combination is for seed beaders and stringers using larger crystals, pearls. Great for when I'm designing new bracelets and necklaces.

Interested in Beading & Art Retreats?

I'll be planning more retreats. To find out more sign up for my beading retreat newsletter. The Retreats will be open sessions. Enjoy working inside or outside overlooking the Teton Mountains. You can learn anything I have kitted in my studio or pulled from my HUGE bead stash, OR you can bring a beading project you've needed help with! There will be beading, applique quilt designs, and who knows what else available by then for you to explore and create!

Applique Art Quilt Designs!

Click here to see the quilt designs. Working on getting back to the "drawing board" again. I love to draw and creating these different designs are so much fun. If you have a pattern idea e-mail it to me. If you want your fluffy buddy imortalized in fabric, I do custom designs, .75 cents per sq. inch., portrait with placement and color code chart. If it's one I'd like to use as a design for retail and it's okay with you, you will receive the pattern for FREE! Just e-mail me several pictures of your furry friend close up and in action, and his/her name and a little about them. It helps me capture more of their personality.
