El Quelite

Today the morning was very very foggy but then blue skies and lots of sunshine. Tom had a pool day and I went on a tour of a little town called El Quelite with a new friend, Lucia. What a pretty town, colorful houses, pretty flowers and good food. Great day!

Today is Wed and it is very warm and humid here in Mazatlan Mexico. We went out to a very nice outside resturant for breakfast this morning called Mary's. The pancakes, bacon and breakfast sandwich were outstanding! Tom is out playing golf this afternoon and I'm just hanging out messing with the computer and beading.

We're Here!

Well we finally made it to Mazatlan. We were up at 3am and made it to Mazatlan around 3PM on Sat. LOVE it here sunny and warm. I have a head cold so the flight was rough on my ears. Today is Mon and we are off to a great day.

No More Twitter

I could not figure out Twitter and all the 'social networking' stuff is getting out of hand. I need to spend time making things. I think I need to find sites where I can place adds for folks who want to buy handmade things. If anyone is reading this please let me know your suggestions. Bye to Twitter!

The other day I signed up on Facebook and Twitter. I have noooooo idea what I am doing. I hope as time goes by I will figure it out by reading how people uses these sites. Barbara from Bloomfield, NJ wrote me today, check out her page on Facebook.
Hearing from her brought back memories of me growing up in Newark, NJ. Memories of Bloomfield Avenue, School Stadium, Branchbrook Park (cherry blossoms), downtown Newark (Hahnes, Bambergers, Blums, McCory's). WOW!

Yesterday's FUN Creations

I had so much fun making the most colorful necklaces for Spring and Summer. I used large plastic pendents and glued pretty resin cabochons. But the most fun was making the chains using the most pretty beads. Check out the photo and they are for sale on Etsy.

Have a Look at this Site!

Us Trendy: Models, Fashion, Design & Art Portfolios. Today's Inspiration Tomorrow's Trend. A new fashion company and fashion website , www.UsTrendy.com,is facilitating a revolutionary process through its website, to help democratize a sometimes top-down fashion industry. At the site, aspiring fashion designers can upload their designs for other users to view. Those users vote for their favorites, and the top-rated clothing is produced. In this way, the customers decide what is produced each season. As UsTrendy founder Sam Sisakhti has said, "I Originally felt the need to create UsTrendy when I saw the struggles that friends of mine –aspiring fashion designers – went through to find viable career opportunities in fashion industry, this coupled with the lack of viable outlets for fashion enthusiasts to express their voice in deciding the trends and clothing produced each season."UsTrendy is currently taking submissions for its Spring 2009 Design competition. The winning designer will score a $3,000 dollar grand prize, including production and exclusive promotion and sale of their clothing line on UsTrendy. (http://www.ustrendy.com/spring-competition/)

It's Snowing Again!

It's been a while since I have added to my blog. I was going to post every day! I have been in the process of gearing up for 2009. My resolutions are to get organized, take better care of myself and try to grow my business. So I have been going through closets and cabinets organizing and getting rid of things we do not use. I still have much to do in the basement and my craft room. As for taking better care of myself I have been exercising almost everyday. I feel much much better. I hope to continue. Luckily I have two friends, Helen and Linda, we keep each other motivated. I have been trying to line up craft shows for 2009, so far I am doing well. I am also making new inventory and making new business cards. So much to do!
Tune in for progress reports.
