I’ve been beading again for about 4 years. (I used to bead in college, about a hundred years ago).

I’ve been married 31 years! We have one child. My daughter, Sam, is in her 4th year of college. She’s still at Hunter College in NYC!

We live on eastern Long Island. I love the beach and traveling any place tropical, especially Key West (time share).

I teach first grade (for just a few more months!!!) and, at one time, thought I would facilitate workshops for teachers when I retire, but it looks like I have a new plan!

Thanks to this forum, my bead habit has become a business! I sell at art and craft fairs, home shows and on line at etsy.
check out my website….
And my blog – http://www.gemsbyjeannemarie.blogspot.com
They’re both still works in progress, but it’s a start.

I love the support and friendships I’ve found here at LB!!! (not to mention – the great products and service!)

    Hi, Jeanne! I’m was so happy to see you on LB today! I’ve been so worried about you, Larry, & Sam this past week. I was going to call you & can’t find your phone number. Please let me know how you’re doing when you get a chance. :)

    Could you also send me your phone number & address again? It’s been waaaaay too long since we’ve been in touch. I lost most of my messages on LB, so I don’t know who may have tried to contact me here. Also, our phone/answering machine combo at home gave us problems this past year. We found out people had left us messages that we never received. Yikes!

    I love your new profile photo & your new website! Very impressive! :D

    Take care, be safe, & write when you can — either here or my regular e-mail address — lforsterling@comcast.net. BTW, I tried sending this as a private message several times & it wouldn’t go through. Weird.

    Love & hugs,

    ”Hi” back at you, Jeanne! Our computer has been in the ICU at Best Buy due to a virus, so I’m just now catching up on e-mails. I’ll write more soon!
