Fun Beading!

I've been doing a lot of beading the last few weeks and enjoying every minute. 
I've been staying up past midnight almost every night, sometimes until 1 or 2 am. 
I just finished a bracelet I will be teaching at Mie's Beads on October 3. 

Before I was done with this one I had picked out colors for another one. As I started the new one I had picked out colors for 3 more and thinking of new designs. 
The one I'm working on now is orange, lime, purple, dark brown and shades of gold.

Sandy's Service

My best friend Sandy Spivey passed away and we just had the funeral service on Monday it was beautiful and I want to thank everyone for all of your wonderful support!  We let balloons go after the service and it was really beautiful to watch them float away.

Beading and Watching Lord of the Rings

I had a wonderful time with my granddaughter, she wanted to stay so in a few weeks she will be coming back to spend a few days.  That will make me happy!

Back to beading and watching Loard of the Rings, this makes me miss Lexi and Karen!

My piece is growing in length but will need more beads I only took enough for the bracelet and I'm doing the lariat.

I forget I can stay up as long as I want because I don't have a shop!

6 Days with Sabine Lippert

July 8, 2015 I was off and driving to Creative Castle for 6 wonderful days of classes with
Sabine Lippert and to stay with Carole Tripp the owner of Creative Castle.  Staying at Carole's house is like a 6 star hotel, it is a wonderful experience.  Being a student at her store is also wonderful as you feel like you are at a retreat and I guess you are, they wait on you, get you beads, water and food.  I can't say enough about Carole's store and her help, they are courteous, helpful and wonderful people, such a joy!

I took a few pictures that I will now post and see if I can't write a caption by the pictures.
Have fun looking at the wonderful pictures I took and if you ever have a chance to take classes at Creative Castle it is a must!

To Sabine I will miss you and can't wait to see you next year, my heart is sad I wish you lived closer so we could see more of you!  Sabine is a wonderful artist and an incredible teacher so if you are going to Bead and Button next year sign up for a class with her you will not be sorry!

I will be back down at Carole's store August 1 and 2 for a class with Maggie Meister and then I need to get to work on my website because all of those beads won't get on my site unless I put them on!

Love, Kandra

Dinner after one of the classes and what wonderful classes they were!
This is Lily in the Pond, well a start of it.

Evening Walk

It was a wonderful walk this evening with a beautiful soft breeze blowing just when you get to hot. Here are a few pictures of some plants.

My Evening Walk

I have started walking in the evening almost everyday, it clears my head and helps me put my thoughts into action.  It's also helping me get fit again after four years if not doing anything but working.
It's been overcast all day and while I was walking the sun was trying to peak out from under the clouds, it was just beautiful so I had to take a few pictures.
I am not a Gardner so I don't know the name of this plant but I think it's just beautiful so I had to take picture of that also.
My last picture is a neighbors front yard and in between the cracks she has purple flowers growing and I think it's just beautiful may we all have purple flowers growing.
