Happy Holidays from Snowy and Really Cold Milwaukee!

This is NOT my house, but it is nearby. I think that's a Santa decoration from a defunct shopping center in town.We've had too much snow already and it's been below zero most of the day, but the fresh snowfall last night helped officers nab a would be thief!

The police followed the suspect's tracks and apprehended him. He had changed his clothes but they found the mask he used to hold up pizza delivery person. Headline read
"Footprints in Snow Lead Police to Suspect." Talk about dumb criminals...

No time to do any beading lately - hope to get back to it after the holidays.

Today's quote is Zen (and I'll try hard to remember this the next time I'm digging out from under): No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place.

Been a While

Steam rising over Lake Michigan 12-5-08.

I finally have the website that has been consuming a lot of my time up and running. It's for the Loose Bead Society of Greater Milwaukee. Hope you'll stop by and take a look. I coded the whole thing by hand.

Haven't really had much time to bead lately - my sister and I stumbled into an opportunity we couldn't pass up - an artist's cooperative that is in existence for at least the holiday season, right around the corner from my house. If things work out, it'll be there to stay. I've been spending a lot of time over there.

Today's quote comes from Henry David Thoreau: Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.
