About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


Racing for the Cure

This past weekend I took part in the 19th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Detroit. It was such an inspirational and moving experience. It was also unexpectedly fun, too! I plan to make this event part of my yearly routine from here on out. Here are some photos I took of the events that day:
Part of the fun was seeing all of the signs people made ~ talk about creativity! Although breast cancer is a serious subject, it was nice to see that some humor made it into the day.
There were many different bands playing along the route, which was very cool! I actually wanted to stop and listen to them. It made for a very festive environment. Here you see the runners passing us walkers on their way back to the finish line. And how could you not laugh at this t-shirt?!?
Or this????
Here are my friends and I with Andrew Humphreys, who is a meteorologist at one of the local TV news stations. He was so kind to stop and pose for a photo with us.
Thanks to all who made a purchase from my shop during the month of May. Because of your support, I will be able to make a nice donation to the Komen Foundation.


Checking In

Hello everyone! I've been away for a while, I know. It seems I have been extra busy and fell off the blogging bandwagon :) I will try not to go MIA again, for a while, anyway. I hope you're doing well and enjoying Spring. We all know how much I love this time of year, especially seeing all the flowers in my yard "spring" up. I am sure I've probably bored you all to tears in the past with tours of my little garden, so I will try not to repeat. However, I could not resist posting this picture that I took recently. This lilac has the most intoxicating fragrance! I wish you could smell it through the computer. One day I noticed there were at least half a dozen butterflies, like the one pictured, resting on it. Do you think they were getting drunk??
