Introduction Never in one place for very long, I'm called a gypsy, hence the names of my blogs. I have lived in many places, and I have traveled to many places too!! On Bead Gypsy Blog, I list my Classes and all bead related things. Gypsy Travels is stuff related to family and travel. The Bead Journal Project is all about my monthly impressions in the form of bead-art. I need to create, and am always keeping my hands busy with beading, scrapbooking, mixed media art forms.
Interests My passion is art, I have to create!I get grumpy and unhappy if I'm not. Photography/Fine Art was my major in college. I then worked in Advertising as a graphic design artist at a major department store doing lay-outs for the local newspaper. Then I did window and store displays working in Visual Merchandising and I traveled across the U.S. merchandising depts. and training people at new stores. I also helped open the NORDSTROM Galleria store in DALLAS where I was a Department Manager. All the while, my need to create was in the background, until the last few years and I have devoted all my time to fueling my creative needs.
Favorite Movies All Michael Douglas movies, It's a Wonderful Life, Polar Express, Elizabethtown, Forrest Gump

Why does the taste of pennies remind you of losing a tooth?

It only reminds me of when I swallowed a penny once...
