You’ll Never Guess

Well, if you’ve been with me – for even a little while – I have a feeling you will be able to guess . . . πŸ˜‰

You see, my old mouse was acting up – going bananas actually! I put up with it for a while. It was corded so a battery was not the problem. I cleaned it, researched the troubleshooting guides, looked for driver updates, etc, etc. and nada!

I realized that I had probably given the poor thing quite a workout and, as my Mum likes to say, “It didn’t really owe me any money.”

So, I bought a new one . . .

Are there any guesses as to which color I chose???

You are correct!!!

It’s PURPLE πŸ˜€

It’s called “Imperial Purple” (well excuuuuse me!!!). πŸ˜‰

You’ll notice I took the opportunity to replace my mouse pad as well. Even though the mouse doesn’t need it, I like to have one just the same. Doesn’t the scene look tranquil and inviting?

Now if I could just click the mouse and immediately be transported there . . .

Note to Self: Next time a mouse is purchased, look for one with the “transport” feature! πŸ˜‰



Grape Jelly

It was a quiet weekend, so I had a little time to design a necklace/earring set with some vintage lucite beads that I absolutely love!

Yes, they’re purple – you know that I just can’t resist purple!

In my defense, I must say that I’ve been pretty good about making things in other colors, lately . . . Really!

The beads here are an especially rich, translucent, “grape jelly” purple with little clouds of white swirling through them. So gorgeous!

This set is now available in my shop. πŸ™‚

Or maybe you’d like to make your own design with the grape jelly beads! You can find them here!


What did you do over the weekend? πŸ™‚



Spring is for Purple Lovers!

If you like purple as much as I do, then you’ll probably agree that Spring is a very exciting season!


There are shades of purple everywhere with the lilacs, violets, pansies, hyacinths, and my absolute favorite – the iris!!!


They’re in full bloom in our yard right now. Aren’t they pretty? πŸ™‚


What is your favorite flower?


Passion for Purple

I’m a purple person. I’m always immediately attracted to anything purple. Whether it’s flowers, clothes, jewelry, or paper – if it’s purple, I usually love it!

Because I design jewelry, I have to keep reminding myself that there are other colors and that many people love other colors!!!

So yesterday, when I decided to make a pendant necklace, what color do you think I made?


You guessed it — purple. I just couldn’t help it. The beautifully muted shade of matte metallic purple on the faceted beads mesmerized me! πŸ™‚


Oh well, back to the drawing board. I’ll try again tomorrow for a different color . . .

Maybe I’ll just leave all of the purple beads in the drawer so I won’t be tempted! πŸ˜‰
