Here goes nothing...

This blog is my birthday gift to myself. My hubby and 2 sons are out of town for the weekend visiting my mother-in-law and I'm home alone on my (never mind the year) birthday. I've decided to prove that even aging baby boomers can be part of today's computer technology- even if I'm a little slow getting started.

Today was beautiful and warm in PA so I decided to spend the afternoon outside in a lounge chair doing what I love to do- bead! It's November and I managed to get a sunburn on my face while I made a replacement black Crazy Wavy necklace for my Etsy shop. My MIL bought 2 of my necklaces and my shop looks rather empty.

Here are pics of the necklaces my MIL bought since my guys took the camera and I can't take pics of my latest creation.

Happy Birthday Dawn! Your blog looks great! Must be the week to start blogs, because I just opened an account on blogger. Nothing published yet though. Congrats on your sales to your MIL!

Great work! The next frontier will be to get involved with a Wikki (learned about this latest electronic communication tool just this week). Happy _ _ th B-day! We women are like wine: we get better with age.
