I must have triangles on my mind because lately I have been making a lot of them!  I have been making three dimensional pyramids and triangle pillow necklaces.   I have been taking yoga classes.  The triangle pose is one of the 12 basic asanas or postures. It good for your coordination and sense of balance. In yoga  you need a lot of concentration and precision to be able to carry it out correctly. The same holds true for beading.  You need a lot of focus to make the triangle work and pull it all together.  Truthfully, I am much better at beading than I am at yoga!

I Made It To The Front Page!!!

Well it took two years but I finally made it to the front page. No - not to the New York Times - to Etsy! I guess it happens when you least expect it. I always check my blackberry first thing in the morning (I don't know what kind of urgent emails I think I am getting being a stay at home mom!) I saw an email from Statsy Featurator (which I will never erase!) and sure enough I made it to the front page. True it was at 3:30 am but I am sure it was prime time somewhere in the world! Well once is enough. That is all I needed. Maybe you will see me on the front page in another two years.  A special thanks to AuntJaneCan who created this wonderful treasury.
