Oakworms and Zoom Calls

Volume 18 Issue 4, April 2021

What's New in April?

Feels like we went from winter to summer in a blink of an eye. One day it was a nice and comfortable 70 degrees and then it went to 90 and humid almost overnight. Or maybe not really overnight …

In the meantime, I took a bit of a trip to Tennessee only to turn around and drive as quickly as possible to stay in front of the line of storms that hit Alabama hard. Our prayers go out to the folks who lost everything in these storms. Looks like it might be a very stormy spring season for the whole country. Montana is seeing double-digit inches of snow.

While all of this is going on, I have been making new beads with bright, colorful flowers. Trying out some bold new designs and working with artwork to create one of a kind pieces. At some point, these will also end up in my loose beads for sale.

Flowers are starting to bloom, and our bird feeder is very busy with cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers and doves. Even the painted bunting is still hanging around enjoying some of the seeds. We had an unidentified caterpillar that I have spent months trying to figure him out. It’s now been identified as an oakworm that ends up looking like this:

What’s New

Cuff Bracelets: Zodiac cuff bracelets to show off your sign.

Thimbles: More Mother’s Day gift ideas for Mom or Grandma. Don’t forget that Nurse Appreciation Week is May 6-12.

Statement Earrings: Perfect for Zoom calls. Large and bold earrings for every day.

You will find all of my beads, canes and finished jewelry on my website. www.bluemorningexpressions.com

Until next month,


Things to Look Forward To:

New Products:

Pushpins: I have too many themes to mention here, but from teachers to nurses to friends, I am doing designs as quickly as I can.

Statement Beads: Working on large beads for ZOOM calls and being on camera. Both earrings and pendant necklaces.

Prints and Posters: Bible verse posters and other art featuring hot rods and more are in production.
