65 Years Young

Well, I pulled it off. My hubby, Jeff, was so very surprised yesterday. A surprise 65th birthday party. I couldn't have done it without the help from my darling Hillary and my dear friends. It was a full day from start to finish. Lots of decorations, food, drink, family and friends. Thanks to all !!!! I'm sorry that our son Daniel and daughter Jennifer and Brothers and Sister in laws and Mothers etc. were not able to be here. Good wishes were sent and given over the phone.
Today Jeff and I celebrated with love, lunch and a walk through the mall. Tonight I'll be making him a T-Bone steak. Yum !!! In fact, that's what I'm about to start making now.

In The Begining

Well, I must say that I thought that I would never do this, but here I am. I have always said "wherever you go, there you are". Like I said, Here I Am.

I have been doing crafts ever since I can remember. Aside from the projects at grammar school and camp, my grandmother taught me how to crochet and knit. And oh yes, my mother had a hand in that as well, and in the making of pot holders. Oh boy, do I remember that. At some point in time, they changed the loop material and it was a lot easier to make them. That just brought me back. WOW !
Let me jump now to beads. Plain and simply strung, colorful beads. I loved them. In 1970 I found size 6/0 beads in many colors and thought I had died and gone to heaven. I made so many strings of beads for around my neck and everyone elses. I wore them for many years, along with my bell bottom jeans and denim shirts and a ring on every finger. Even had a few flosers painted on my face. Ahhh , Greenwich Village, USA. Yep, I guess you could say that I was a Hippie and proud of it then and now. Learned quite a lot about love, peace and happiness. You make it yourself.
