Personal

I was born and raised in Hawaii, mostly in urban Honolulu. My sense of color tends to come from the many diverse Asian and Pacific Islander cultures, as well as the lovely natural environment – beaches, tropical plants and flowers, animals…

I currently live in Seattle WA, and am attending graduate school at Antioch University locally. I’m studying Organizational Psychology which focuses on how organizations and groups can be healthy and effective…
Otherwise I’m working part time in a workstudy job… I began my professional life years ago as an engineer, switched to doing social service work as an advocate in the Seattle area in the past 10 years. I’ve also worked as a community organizer, mostly unpaid.

My parents still live in Hawaii, plus my eldest sister and youngest brother, and many aunties, uncles and cousins on both sides of the family.

    Wow, gorgeous, love the “crazies” in this, natural yellow crazy lace agate, vs the contrast of thenatural druzy agates, makes me think of a desert on a drowsy summer day!! –

    Beth, you’re on a roll, would not have thought to put these yellows with the lovely amazonite and the Gaea ceramic bundle, everything works really well together!! –

  • J Yee smart chick commented on the Fresh Pick “Fancy That!”   1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Beth, love the richness of your Pick, fancy jasper really blends so well with the others that you have, including moss agate, tree agate, the deep reds and the fab lighter burma jade… wow, very inspiring, a fave!! –

    Hi fellow beaders,

    I saw Beadinggma’s inquiry about how to use the wire option here – and I am not sure – I do understand how to send messages to select individuals using the message option, but how do I use the wire???

    Joyce, please check out the pick by Donna aka Southern Chick called ”In Memory of Mary” — it shares sad news about our beloved Mary aka Smoky Rose.

    Hugs,
    Lynn

    Hi! I didn’t realize you are from Hawaii. I was just on Oahu in May. The best part of our trip was renting a car and driving all the way around the island. What a beautiful place, and some of the nicest people I’ve met anywhere!

    Sending a message is private! Writing on the wire like I’m doing now is public on the Garden Home page.

    Hey Plucky, like you I’m still figuring out how to use the features here, such as the wire… much less sending you a message instead… still somewhat confused over the difference in ”wire” and ”message… and ”Hi” to you too! :)

    Hi, Smart Chick! So you posted on MY wire and I answered you on MY wire. Then I thought, what if she doesn’t get back to my page to read my answer, so I am telling you here…Hmmmm. I guess i could send you a message instead, but no need for a private conversation, just saying HI here!!
