What are you doing Rain Man?
I’m sorting beads.

Confession: Sometimes I just sort. It’s soothing to me.

Hi Fellow Bead-aholics!
I’ll tell you a little about myself. I started making jewelry about 5 years ago. I keep making and making and making and making. And half the time I leave the house forgetting to put any on! I just enjoy doing it. I even enjoy re-doing.
I’m a speech language pathologist and I work with multiply disabled students at a private school. Our agency takes the kids that have tried every other type of educational setting and still needed more support. We’re basically the last stop before residential. I love it!
I also love dogs and am just starting to become involved with several rescue groups in my area, taking in fosters. My own dog was a rescue, who was very ill with heartworm when I got her. We had her for four and a half years and she just died in March.
I have 3 grown children, all sons, and they all live with us at this time (thank you recession!) I’d love for one of them to fly the coop so I can have their room for my rapidly growing hobby. Someday soon I hope, fingers crossed.
My husband’s name is Ray and we’ve been married just about 25 years.
That’s about it! Thanks for reading. And thanks for all your encouraging comments on my picks and designs!
