~It's Powwow Time~

Hey folks!! Just touching base now to let you know I've not forgotten about you. I've been so tremendously busy these past few months I have not had time to update my blog or website. I'm taking a well deserved break from beading. It has just consumed every minute of my days/nights and literally had me run down. As well, my husband had an unfortunate accident then surgery so needless to say my world has been turned upside down for the time being.

Through all the chaos..I still managed to pump out some great regalia accessories and a few orders for my awesome clients. I've uploaded a few pictures here and will upload more photos in the coming months. I didn't get to go to the Powwow again this's so disappointing but it could be worse I guess. Next year I hope to attend both the Miawpukek (Conne River) Powwow and the one in Flat Bay..ooh how I long to to hear the drums and see the dancers *sigh*.

A little news.....back in May I was approached about taking on a volunteer position for the Craft Council, I said Yes and as of the end of May I stepped into the position of Central Representative for the Craft Council of Newfoundland & Labrador. I hope I can do a good job representing the members out here in Central. With so much on my plate right now it's sort of hard getting organized but I'm going to try my best!!!

I hope you're all having a great summer!!! The warm weather has finally arrived here in Newfoundland...not sure for how long so I guess I should get out and enjoy it!!! Take care folks, I'll be in touch as soon as I can. Till then, thank you for your continued support, I really appreciate it!! are a few pics of the girls in the beautiful Powwow Regalia. I did the jewelry accessories for Susan Hill pictured (center right) in the dark rust shawl and also for Dayna Benoit who is on the far right in the white, green and pink. The picture to the right shows Dana with her beautiful barrette in her hair. The last picture is of Susan's awesome beaded barrette!!!! All of the girls are just so gorgeous!!!!
