So, here I am.....

The girl that said she'd never blog. The far from computer savvy girl that is always up for a challenge despite a serious lack of time.My blog goals. Do I have blogging goals? Hmmm, I guess I should. So I pledge to be funny, lighthearted, not vent or complain to much and maybe just maybe share a crumb of wit and wisdom on occassion.I will most likely chat about etsy, my addiction and muse. the incredible artsists and friends I have found in a community that oozes with creativity, friendship, support and a home for all things handmade.You will hear me ramble about the insanity of my life including my 3 boys, ages 12, 16 and 53. Yes, that last one I am married to, but trust me, he is just as much boy as man. After 17 years of marriage I find myself raising him along with them. Then again, he would probably say the same of me at times. I will often speak of friends I would go to the ends of the earth for and a family that more often than not defines dysfunction. Then again, I strongly believe a functional family is the stuff legends are made of.I am a lover of music of all kinds and not so much the TV ( except maybe Glee). I have an addiction to handmade glass, especially venetian and lampwork beads as well as unique pottery. I have made a concerted effort to tame my jewelry fetish with my own creations which can be seen at you haven't figured out by now, I can jabber my jaws and my fingers as if someone could care what I have to say.

A natural Reminder

So today is december 1st, and just in case you have forgotten how fun winter in Chiacgo can be, Mother nature gave us a great reminder today. I spent more time in the car today than one would hope to in this weather and my back is reminding me of just how tense the drive was. Snow, sleet, freezing rain, and now rain. all in one afternoon. Now remembering that this is Chicago; home of the saved parking space, it would be safe to assume most drivers have seen snow. However, there is always that first snow of the season to send people into a tailspin. a few flakes, and you get a few flakes behind the wheel. Today, a few more than any one driver should have to contend with, but I did. and why? for this

and these
