What a month! It began with bang. Bead Soup Blog party was over and I found so many encouraging comments and new followers. I wanted to thank everyone, it means so much to me. I admit it I never got through the whole list and still have a few more blogs to look at. A couple things happened:(:(

My month started with taxes (my least favorite part of my business) and then a headache. A migraine came on, boom and nearly three weeks later including a hospital stay..... I am still on the mend. A virus and other complications i am still trying to get back on my feet.

The exciting thing is my first published necklace was in March Bead Trends. I can't believe I am just getting this on my blog.

If you haven't had a chance to see the magazine I'm on page 94 and 95. I designed this necklace during the oil spill last summer. It seemed to come together as I used nautical glass and components, green beads and Vintage Brass to make this beautiful necklace.

I have a bead table full of amazing components and beads to work with in my new designs. Lots of ideas!! The good news is I still dream about beads and designing.

I just felt the need to let you know I will be back soon, I hope. I have gotten tons of sleep and I am caught up on lots of new recipes from the cooking channel. I have been pampered by my sweet husband and eaten some yummy healthy food. Not much else to do but hopefully wake up with all the energy I need for everything on my to do list. Each day that is my goal.

See ya soon. Cherrie
