Random Friday

  • After some encouragement from last Friday's random thoughts post, I am back!
  • To all those serving or have served in our nation's armed forces, in any capacity, "Thank you,"
Visiting Grandpa at Arlington Cemetary, Memorial Day 2011
  • Tonight, I will be sleeping on a gym floor in a sleeping bag, while my Webelos son runs around like crazy, shooting Nerf guns at other 10-11 year old CubScouts...yippeee!
  • Tomorrow morning, after a sleepless night, and waking with an aching back, said CubScout and I will join the rest of his pack to pick up food donations in the neighborhood for this years "Scouting For Food" drive.
  • After that, a shower, and maybe a nap...I am heading down to the Bead Society of Greater Washington's Annual Fall Bead Bazaar, in Gaithersburg!  My dear friend, the fabulous Ms. Barbara Lewis, will have a booth, as well as some of my favorite lampwork artists!  If you are in the area, you should definitely attend!
  • So, the concensus was that I should, in fact, offer some of my components for sale.  I have decided to do just that...but it will be a little while until I amass enough that I really don't want to hoard for myself.  Umm, by the way, how do you art beads people do it.  Everytime I say, "okay, gonna enamel something to sell!", I look at them, and say "Ooh, I should keep this and make xxxx"!  You are all rolling your eyes by now!  Anyway, here is a sneak peak at what I did last night!

  • Have a wonderful, autumn weekend! As always, thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Melissa,

    I am going to see Barbara's demo and buy
    more supplies, I hope I see you.

  2. Oh, you tease!! Those are gorgeous colors you came out with. Have a great time with Barbara. I'm going to suggest some Icy Hot for the backache coming up! :)

  3. Some of the things we do for our kids!! You're a trooper!
    Put those pretties in the shop, they'll be gone in no time! can make more.

  4. Oh the pieces are awesome! And how cool, that you do that for your son. I'm so glad to be back, missed you guys!

  5. Oh the pieces are awesome! And how cool, that you do that for your son. I'm so glad to be back, missed you guys!

  6. Melissa, I'm wondering how it went with the Boy Scouts on Friday night. You really are a cool Mom...what a trooper! I'm not sure I could have done that.
    I saw a pic from the show of Barbara's display - sounds like a great time was had by all. One of these days I'll have to get to that show again. I went once years ago.
    Your new components are beautiful - I'd want to keep them all to myself if I were you! :-)


I love reading your comments!!!
