Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!

Personal

Jack of all trades; master of none :) 57 years old, married, no human children, but countless ‘kids’ of the feathered, furred, and scaled varieties – LOL

Back in the Stone Age, I worked a ‘real job’ in biomedical and radiopharmaceutical research. My passion is for animals of all kinds (undergrad. degree in Veterinary Medicine/grad. work in Biochemistry – would love to have been a vet, but didn’t have enough brains).

Have been a wildlife ‘rehabber’ and educator for decades.
Love all of God’s Creation and am most comfortable amongst the ‘lesser brethren’ :) Love to share the message with people of all ages.

Hubby and I have a small ‘hobby farm’ with a plethora of rescue animals of several species. Moved back to Maine in early 2000′s to care for ailing parents who had retired here. Brought our ‘kids’ with us.

We call AZ our ‘adopted home state’ and hope to return soon. Will bring all our ‘kids’ who remain back with us when we go :) – another cross-country “Noah’s Ark” road trip.

Love beading and jewelry making and focus on bead embroidery when my hands allow that kind of work. Admire all here on LB – such talent – and enjoy viewing their creations :)

No web site yet, but may in the near future.

    Gorgeous pick and I, too, love this song. My Mom passed away 13 years ago on Aug. 21. My Dad is now 92 with myriad health problems (he is 100% service connected disabled) and has advanced Alzheimer’s. Yet, he still remembers the love of his life, Evelyn (Mom) whose favorite flower was a daisy Thank you [...]

    Love the colors in your pick! The addition of the turquoise sari silk ties it all together. Great components; great combination. Would love to see what you would make with this!

  • Lois D commented on the Fresh Pick “Champaigne Taste”   1 week, 6 days ago

    This is a gorgeous POD…and, it’s killing me. I NEED so many of these strands! There are birthstones of all the nieces/nephews/grand-nieces/grand-nephews I have.
    But, alas, I am in beader’s prison
