Hi all, hope your summer is off to a good start & you had a great holiday weekend…we went to the Russian River for the holiday, although it was really hot hanging out at the water was fun…lots of things have happened since my last post which was in May, some are really good and well some are not so good…

Lets talk beads first, I have managed to make some beads in the past few weeks, and you would be proud of me I have actually listed most of them in my etsy shop below are some photos of the beads…after 10 plus years of making beads, once again I have changed my photos, from white background to gray & rocky background, so please let me know which you like best…the white ones take so long to do…change is good!!! right?

John Rizzi’s last class was so much fun at our studio, check out photos of the day & beads here & other stories on Graceful Customs Blog

I have added new class & get together information to the left side of my blog, check it out, try & make it for one of our meetings, I think both the Chain Maille class & possibly silver soldering glass are full, but send Grace an email & get more information.

Keep an eye out for new tools from Graceful Customs as well…

The last blog post bead goes to Sandy “SanSan” from Sacramento, send me your address girl…for this blog post giveaway I have a bubble eye bead with deep see blues & silvered ivory, love this bead, it will make a great pendant…enter to win it by making a comment on this blog post…maybe tell me your thoughts about the new photos…

And here is the rest of the story…After months of doctor appointments, many many different kinds of procedures & drugs, we had our one and only IVF cycle & it did not work…So we move on now, although I have been feeling down about the whole thing, physically, emotionally & getting over all the shots & drugs is very hard too…as I struggle to get back to my daily life, I remember so many other people who struggle in their lives with far worse issues than mine…I remember my parents struggle to bring us to America so we can have a good life & not have to live in oppression. I remember how we had no money & my father a man with a PHD working  for 17 years as a card dealer in a card room club for tips, my mother, a master degree holder & teacher working at Kentucky Fried Chicken, so we could have good a life…I remember so many people suffering all over the world with far worse life problems than mine, from the middle east to Japan, from Arizona fires to Floods all over the country and so many many other ills all over the world…So we move on, life is good…I have so many things to be thankful for in my life…Life IS GOOD…
Thanks for stopping by…
thanks for all the emails asking about my whereabouts…
Jelveh
Peace
