My beaded jewelry consists of making little beaded flower necklaces-I have found that although I enjoy the crystals they are really expensive as is jewelry making in general so when i earn more money than what I make now-I'll probably make more intricate stuff-I have some really nice patterns that cost quite a bit to get all the components for.  Shame really!

I wish I could so that. Maybe when you get to making more intricate stuff, you can market it to those of us Exislers who can't make beaded neklaces but like to buy them. Do you have pictures? I'm deadly serious - I got all of my favorite jewelry from outside the U.S.

Are these flower beads or do you make them yourself? Possibly with seed beads? I work with Swarovski as much as I can (yep, they are expensive. ~yikes~). I just made a necklace for my great niece's 14th b-day with the crystals.

What is your favorite type of peanut butter, chunky, creamy...?

I want a job in HRC's "shadow" cabinet. Good pay, really easy hours, lots of time off. Can't go wrong.

chunky for sandwiches, creamy for baking.  I prefer Jif though for crunchy and Peter Pan for creamy.  

If you finish your novel and I finish mine, i would be totally willing to exchange them and edit each other's work!  I love editing other people's writing.  It helps me work on my bad grammar which developed from a lack of training in school.  

I make them with seed beads.  My best friend found instructions on how to make beads from flower petals but I have to try making them.  I don't think she has either.

I liked Lurhmann's Romeo and Juliet because I liked the visual modernization but the keeping of the language.  All the swirling colors everywhere, the busy nightlife; it was stunning and bizarre with the older language but then it makes a statement I think that the language isn't that difficult to overcome.

I was discussing the Luhrmann version with this very cultured grand dame in my neighborhood and she said that she of course couldn't go see it because it had these modern kids in it and there would be all that slang and foul language destroying the beauty of Shakespeare's poetry.  She was stunned when I told her that they were still using Shakespeare's lines and had just changed the setting.

So, had you decided to leave Buffalo and then decided on the UK, or met Balth and decided to take off?
I'm wondering, as basically everyone I grew up has left Buffalo, about half of them deliberately looking to get out, the other half being something better convinced them to.
Yes, I am an economist. Yes, I do frequently sing "Can't Buy Me Love". No, I don't see any contradiction there.

I'd jump in here, but I know I'll never finish.    :(   But I hope you two do.    :)

Actually... I met Balth and he had a year left at his university back home.  He didn't really like the university system here so when we got engaged I decided that I would at least let him have his final year in England with all of his friends and such back home.  

It's also much much easier to get a visa to leave the US then to get one to come in.  It's very difficult.

^ Does that imply that after Balth has finished in the UK, you will both re-evaluate where you want to live?

Since I don't like nuts in anything, even though I love nuts, I like creamy Peter Pan.

You are on! I enjoy editing, but hate giving criticism. Tends to upset people.  :lilsmile:

I've heard of making beads from petals, but I don't have any idea how. There is a way to use silver clay and make pieces for jewelry. Could make beads that way.
