Last week I called to check on my May 2014 beginner silversmith class, In A Metal Mood,  at John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC and found out the class is full with one person on the wait list.  Even though it is full, if you want to get into the class, please get on the wait list.  One never knows when a class spot might open up.  The class is always great with lots of learning and tons of fun.

This past January 2014, my mom suddenly passed away.  I can truly say that the world has been spinning a little differently since that day and the beat and rhythm of my life has changed.  It isn’t bad but I sure liked the one with my mom in it the best.  To say that I am missing her is an understatement.  My mom and dad were married 70 years, 7 months and their example of love and dedication to each other was a beautiful thing to behold.  As my dad says, he had my mom for those many years and what more could he ask from God when he already had it all.  We have been blessed beyond measure!!!

I have not been too attentive to this website.  Please excuse that!  I still hope to catch up by posting the original posts from the old blog that was deleted and try to stay more current.

In February, I went to Israel and had a fantastic visit.  It was my second time to visit this beautiful place and once again, I saw Holy Sites.  I lit candles in many of these places in memory of my mom and found it a beautiful way of celebrating her life and expressing thankfulness for it.  Along with that, I loved shopping in the Old City of Jerusalem.  My addiction to their beautiful scarves was fueled once more.

As for my jewelry, I’m working on some individual projects that I plan to project into one.  It should be fun and eliminate any boredom that sets in from doing just one.  I am also gearing up for my May class.

Best to you all.
