Hardy Powwow 2011

Ahh, it's been a while since I've been on here.  So much to do, so little time to get it all done. 

This past weekend, we went to a Pow Wow in Hardy, AR.  We had such a great time!  The Aztec Dancers were there, and all I can say about them is WOW!  If I had known we could film them, we would've taken the camcorder.  We will definitely make this a yearly event to go to!  As well as the dancing, we also enjoyed meeting lots of nice folks, and delicious food.  I had to eat an Indian of my favorite things!  I also tried a meat pie, which I had never eaten before, but it was absolutely delicious. 

Here are a few pics for you to enjoy!

Well, the last two days have been eventful, to say the least.  Apparently, someone dumped four pups in our yard in the middle of the night on Wednesday.  They appear to be maybe a lab mix.  Really sweet pups, but I have no place for them, nor the money to properly take care of them. 

Our local shelter is full, and I don't want to take them to the pound.  I have a feeling this situation will end up making me cry.  All I have is love and compassion for animals, especially dogs.  Dogs are the most wonderful companions.  I truly believe that God put them here on earth to be companions to people.  They do nothing but give unconditional love.  How could someone ever mistreat one?  How could someone ever abandon one?  These are things I just cannot comprehend.  I do know that you reap what you sow.  All I can do is try and take care of these sweet pups.  Give them love, food, and water until I can find homes for them. 

Here is a picture of them in the early morning hours yesterday when I discovered them in our yard:

Most recent creations

Just thought I would share a few pictures of my newest creations.  A tigereye necklace, and a zeebra striped matching set.  Hmm....animals must have been on my mind lately!

I absolutely love making jewelry!  I love experimenting with different stones, and all different beads, and all different styles.  Although, I will say, Native American styles are by far my very favorite.  I love turquoise, bone beads, and loom work.  I haven't done a lot of bead weaving, but what I have done has turned out very nicely.  I wish I knew someone who could show me how to do the peyote stitch.  I'm more of a watch and learn type person, so looking at pictures online hasn't really helped me so far. 

I will try to be faithful in this whole blogging adventure, but I'll make no promises.  I tend to get sidetracked easily! 

About Me

I'm completely new to this "blog" thing, but we'll see how it goes.  I figured my first blog should be just giving folks a little information about myself.  My name is Beth, I'm 36, I was adopted when I was 3 months old.  The people who adopted me are my family; I know nothing about any birth relatives.  I have a younger brother who has always been one of my best friends.  I've been married to my husband, Mark, for almost 10 years now.  Married life is wonderful!  I grew up living next door to my grandparents, and I was extremely close to them.  Now, my husband and I live in my grandparents' house, next door to my dad. 

My likes and dislikes.....I love my family, my friends, and my pets!  We have one dog, Dixie, and one cat, Miss Kitty.  Dixie is my little protector, she sticks by me wherever I am.  Miss Kitty is too wild to live indoors, but she does wait by the door for her food every morning and evening.  My husband and I love to travel.  My favorite states include New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana.  That's not all of them, but most.  We try to take a trip every summer, when funds allow us to do so. 

I make jewelry and sell it locally and on Etsy.  You can view my Etsy page here:

I guess that's enough for now.  I'll share some pictures of my latest work on the next blog!
