Hi, first of all here is my angel that I named Angelika after Angelika the little girl from the cartooon "Rugrats" which that little girl is no angel as a matter of fact I think she is the devil in a little girl costume....LOL If you have ever seen the cartoon you will know what I mean...but my tree top angel "Angelika" is an angel. Ha! She is an angel that I designed a few years ago. I thought I would put her picture here for I noticed when looking at my website
In the next pictures is an amulet bag that I made out of purple wire and brass wire...and again...beads...You have got to love those beads... Even the chain of this bag was made out of wire and beads.
Now this will lead me to some flowers I have tatted with wire. The first one is Mark Myers pattern. I did my leaves and stem differently from him fore I didn't have his pattern for his leaves and stem when I made mine. I proofed this rose for Mark and assisted him in teaching this pattern and how to tat with wire at Hector a few years ago. I have to say that I have discovered over the years that don't be surprised if your wire changes color. My rose is no longer as brite as it was when I first tatted it out of brass wire. I wonder how Mark's rose is fairing these days or if he has noticed the same thing...Maybe Mark will put a comment here and let us all know.
I have also designed my own flower which was published in the IOLI (International Old Lacer Inc) magazine, Summer 2003 with the pattern. I called it "My Heart's Desire". Kinda funny...I went and stole my own pictures from my website incase you didn't want to make the journey there yourself...LOL..
I hope you enjoyed my journey in playing with wire and beads.

NOSTALGIA...... according to "New World Dictionary" a longing for something far away or long ago or for former happy circumstances.
I don't get into my love for music on here...kinda hard to picture my love for music...but I have always loved music. My poor brother use to hear my music continuously played over and over again from his wall. I am sorry Chuck for that...but at least now I have more music so I don't continously play the same song over and over again like when I was a teen ager and you had to suffer with it.
Anyhow...here is a few pictures I took at one of those nostaligic moments in my life...I know the pictures aren't the greatest but these were taken long ago with what cameras we had available back then of coarse now you are not allowed to have your own camera with you. I was in the third row...the music was so loud I couldn't hear anything when I left the theater including my father talking to me who was right next to me. This was my sixteenth birthday present by the way from my parents...now that will give you some age to go by...does anyone recognise who these people are???
