Beading, Working, and Lovin' Life!!!

It has been a long time since I have been around.  I have been covered with projects, fun stuff, creating, beading, working, teaching and generally keeping busy with life.  I have been going to post some of my newest designs but it is either, Bead or Computer.  I just can not do it all. 
This necklace is my latest creation. 
I had this delightful 3 inch cracked colored shell rose for a couple of years yelling at me to "DO SOMETHING!".  
I found a lovely Georgia Peachy metallic bead that matched perfectly.  I have posted two pictures because the second one is closest to the correct colors.  It is very large and very dramatic but I love it!Then I needed to make a love gift for a fellow beader & a good friend so I came up with this scissor holder!  I liked it so well that I made one for myself.  The ultra suede is in two different shades so we could tell them apart...lol
Happy Birthday, Dawn!!!
I wanted to show you a cute ear ring that my daughter, Melissa, made out of Lego Men.  Aren't they just the cutest????

Another birthday gift!  
 This one is for my bosses birthday on Saturday. 
It is a business card holder that I designed today
I even got it all finished in one day.
Happy Birthday, Donna at On The Rocks!!!
You are the best boss I have ever had and I find it such a pleasure to work where I can play. 
I am 64 years old and have finally found a job that ROCKS!!! 
I am so blessed!!!!!!
(Of course I will sneak her business cards and put them inside before I give it to her.)Saturday I will be taking a class from Cristi Prince!!!  I am very excited to be able to take lessons from such a sweet/talented lady.  She has designed a wonderful pattern with "tila" beads, chained crystals and bugles.  I had some crystals that were on an evening gown from years gone by.  So this is what I came up with.  I am looking forward to doing it the correct way then I will post it for you after I take the class. 
Yes, I have been busy but not too busy to think about all of you in blogland.  I have missed so many posts so I MUST go to catch up with you all,
Blessings to you,
Sharon

Hi Sharon~ I lost all my favorite blogs sometime ago and just found yours again tonight. I have missed seeing your elegant work. I know you are the best beader that I have seen. You do unbelievable work.
I read down on your blog and saw that your husband had a horrible accident. So glad he is better. I will keep you both in my prayer for a complete recovery and to give you strength.
Hugs, Pat
