Done for another year.

   We are done with taxes and you probably could hear  a big, huge sigh of relief wherever you are.
My “earnings” are so meager, I don’t even know why I have to bother.  I guess I’m easier to get
stuff off of than the big guys with the gazzilions of dollars.  They probably pay less taxes than I do.
Hope they don’t catch me dodging the money I made from a little song we did inspired by them when I was with my little group.


Let’s talk about more important things...
more grown-up things 
like making beads and jewelry.
Here’s da beads

 Here’s what I made with them.


I took the aforementioned beads and then I
used some “decayed” bead caps meaning I took some nice
bright and shiny bead caps and then put them in Mr. B’s
"magic solution"...which takes off all the shiny crappy plating
and makes them nice and funk-a-fied.  
Then I hammered a piece of steel wire, put on some
vintage brass beads that I wish I had a million of
and attached the two together. 
  Then waxed them and buffed them.

I like the simplicity of these and the gentle lil sway
they have.  They’re like little, oh I don’t know church bells.

Now I’m off to put these in the shop and make my fortune!

A few of you have asked me if I wanted to sell some of the beads
that I’m making.  So I’m giving that some thought.  Perhaps I'll list
a few just for ducks and see how it flies.

Hello Cynthia:
So, you are finished with the robber barons of the tax world for another year, such relief when all those forms are completed and dispatched!

And, to think of nicer,much nicer things....what beautiful earrings!

cynthia - ofcourse they pay less tax than you, they also create debt and let the likes of you and me pay for it,
but on to sweeter things, beautiful earrings cos they give those gorgeous beads all the opportunity to shine through.
