Back on Track

Hi ya'll, so I find some time to update my blog.... finally! :)

Some of you might have seen the last bead sets on my website and that I called one set "Back on Track"
Well, there is a story behind that. ...  long story short: after struggling and stumbling around for the last two years I found myself again and what is really important in my life. My family and my friends are the most important things ... and that's why " I'm back on Track"!

Things what happened in the last months: In April my flight was booked to Jackson ( Sandhill ), Ms and as there was the problem with the Iceland ash cloud it got cancelled and postponed for 7 days. One day before the flight my son got a lung collaps (pneumothorax) and needed to stay in the hospital. As he was getting well fast on the same day with the air drainage and the doctors said he will be fine I didn't postpone the flight again. Another reason for not postponing was that there was a short trip booked to the gulf coast at 2nd of May to Long Beach, Ms in a bed &and breakfast lodge (Long Beach Lodge) We stayed there for 4 nights and it was very nice except the missed ship tour to ship islands and that only one (ok two) visit at the beach for relaxing and going into the ocean... I love that so much :)
I did stay in close contact to my son and my family each day on the Yahoo IM messenger and it was ok.

I will get the pics of the trip online in a flickr album. It was really nice there although the oil spill happened two weeks before, but you didn't see anything so far at the beach.

Getting back home again I had a quarrel with Jim R. aka heartofdragon from glasskissedstudio - Sandhill, MS and he didn't talk to me anymore for over one week. The cooperation with glasskissedstudio ended with that. Right now I'm having a hard time to get my stuff back to Germany as I do not know when or if he ship things. I have a lot of bead presses there what I would like to sell and there are all of my focal beads, thats why I put them offline everywhere in the shops. When I get them back here to my home I will put them online again ... hopefully they arrive soon!  I'm also waiting for a bunch of glass and other bead making tools, so I'm a bit nervous if everything will work out right. I really never got so dissapointed in my whole life by a person like him.
Oh well.... live goes on.... let it go! :)
Another good thing is, that my (rather my husbands one) old ebay account is activated again: *bead-fairy* is alive again and I will get more new sets online there. Hopefully my old customers find my beads again in the ebay bead jungle :)

Now I'm enjoing life more than ever in the last years and that is the best thing of all. One of my friends have had his 40's birthday and that is a very important one in Germany... that is a very big, big thing. Here in the swabian area they say you get "wise" when you turn 40 :) Everyone tries to do something very special like singing special texted songs for him or playing a little scene. We played a scene from the little red riding hood (brother grimms) but played it with different, funny song texts. We had a blast :D and the guests all liked it very much, too!
I will put some more pics also online on my flickr.

Thats it folks, I will come back later for more.... so long
