Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


DOG stands for Designs of Grace which I hope will be launched shortly. I am a nurse case manager for a local rehabilitation facility (strokes, brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple trauma). My job is very hectic to say the least and beading is a way to relax.
I live in Northern California but am a Texan by birth.
I am married and our only son will graduate June 09. He will ship out to Marine Boot Camp July 09. We have 4 cats, Whiskers (my son’s buddy), Gracie (the catnip addicted cat who will love up on anybody), Sabrina my love and Jer-Bear my husbands buddy.

    Hi, Angela!

    So wonderful to see you back here!!! I was just thinking about you this week and wondering how much longer until your son would be back home. :D

    Thanks so much for the update! Sounds as if he’s doing great! Congrats to him on his qualification!!! Hope you’re doing well — you’ve sure been missed around here! :D

    Take care,

    Hi Ladies, I checked into Limabeads tonight and realized that I have not been here in a while. I’m sorry I went missing but our new daughter Britt has been keeping us busy while our son is in boot camp. My son is doing well in boot camp and has qualified as an ”Expert Marksman”. This is something he has wanted for a very long time and we are so proud of him. He will graduate in 3 short weeks and then we get to see him again. I can’t wait. His friend Britt moved in with us for a while and we have enjoyed having a ”daughter”. She is wonderful and we love her. However, it is time to get back to beading and starting to figure out what I want to do as the ”empty nest syndrome” slowly rolls over me. As always, I appreciate your support and I apologize for not being here for y’all. Hugs to all my Chickie girlfriends. I look forward to playing with you again.

    hi Angela!
    just wanted to check in with you and see how your son is doing in boot camp and how you are doing too. When will he be graduating? By the way, I have a short strand of some little apatite teardrops and wasn’t sure of how to best use them in a necklace, then I thought of your Marine Mom necklace, and thought, OOOOO! Hope you don’t mind me borrowing your design! It’s an homage! Hope you are having a nice summer-

    Hi Angela,

    I hope you have a good day today. I know I havent really responded to your messages. Hopefully I will have more time to chat this weekend and be able to answer your questions.
    As you know about Fibromyalgia, you seem to understand some of the problems asscoiated with it. Been doing some researching into the dietary angle and finding out the nightshade family of vegetables seems to be some of the triggers for this so really changing my eating style.
    I hope soon to be able to talk with you person to person. I’m sure you have of questions about Boot Camp and the Marines.

    Talk to you later and have a good day.
