so it's time to talk about what's really important. Me. Who am I, how
do I make this wondrous jewelry, and can I make a mai tai?
start at the beginning. Well, maybe not that far back. Two years ago, a
friend of mine (yes, I do have them) gave me a bracelet. One she had
made herself. I thanked her of course, but deep in the recesses of my
teeny brain, I really thought "I can do that!". And so I did. My first
necklaces ended up as cat toys, not on purpose mind you, but because
all the beads fell off every time I tried to put one on. I still think
there are green glass beads lurking under my one sofa.
I got the hang of it, and nothing could stop me. No, not even my
husband! He had to comment on all sorts of wearable pieces (at that
point they weren't quite jewelry yet) and eventually of course, while I
do value his opinion on how to water tomatoes, I quit asking him mainly
due to his being color blind and a candidate for the fashion police.
Can we say plaid shirts every day????
Now, I am
off and running with my own website. Which of course, should have been
finished years ago, as I am also a web designer. Hah! Weren't expecting
that one were you? And that's still not even my main source of income,
which is the manager of a restaurant in Storm Lake, Iowa called
BozWellz. My sister owns it (you'll see her mentioned here and there
throughout the site) and she allows me to work for her. Hey, it pays
for cat food.
Which I should also mention I have
6 cats. First - no, I am not some old lady who only has cats for
friends..somedays even the cats aren't my friends! We just seem to keep
"finding" cats. I think the technical term is people keep "dumping"
them at our farm house. But we love them dearly.
Now, onto the serious stuff. Money.
I only accept Paypal. Sorry, don't have my credit card stuff hooked up
yet! If you don't have paypal, sign up for it! Or wait a few months
until I figure out the mastercard stuff in amongst building websites,
herding cats and making jewelry. I'll get there as soon as I can!
And even MORE serious than money. Mai Tais.
infamous Mai Tai recipe is right here, free of charge. More than one
will make your legs wobble and the ends of your hair will hurt in the
morning. Just a fair warning.
