My newest beaded art quilt, "Fiesta". 61 cm W (24 "W) x 86.5 cm T (34" T) it only takes 1 hour of work/1 sq.in/ 2.5 cm sq. I can't imagine why my friends call it "needlework obsessive".

Are you lacking in enough frou-frou? This is one of my fav places in the Washington, DC area... http://www.artisticartifacts.com/ Their on-line catalog is also first rate, too. I still have a glover's hand that I have yet to do anything with, but I just had to buy..:) Be sure and sign up for their newsletter as it also has lots of great tips, such as this month's which has a line of yummy looking paints for mixed media.

Creativity is the purview of all three year olds, according to Barnet Bain, the producer and writer of "What Dreams May Come". So much so, 98% of those three year olds register as creative geniuses. However, by the age of twenty five, their numbers are down to 2%. How sad! Listen to this powerful 46 minute interview (it's worth it) of Barnet Bain and his take on the importance of creativity at... http://mikekoenigs.com/barnetbain/

Wow! I'm impressed with Amazon. I bought Photoshop 13 on-line on Sunday for 34% off. Amazon had a today only sale for 54% off. I wrote their customer service and said what gives? The box just came yesterday and I hadn't even opened it yet. 20 min later, I got a reply back that they were refunding me the difference between what I had paid and today's sale price. now that's customer service!

I won my 8th grade Science Fair in 1964 on the effects of alcohol on goldfish. I found that I had to inject them with bourbon; putting them in it didn't have an effect in my experiments. Unfortunately, my goldfish were consistent in their behaviors in that all they could do was swim around in circles until the effects of the alcohol wore off.

Introduction
I'm passionate about long distance spiritual alternative and holistic healing, having had a successful practice now for over nine years. My clients work with me over the phone and  on Skype from all over the USA and Canada, as well as Switzerland, Russia, and Australia. I specialize in helping people heal their negative repeating patterns of behavior and remove the stuck energy in their unconscious minds. By doing that, they can quit going round and round in circles,. repeating the same mistakes, and move forward to having the life of their dreams.
 
 
Besides my holistic healing practice, I've also been professionally creating art quilts and other fiber arts for over 30 years. My specialty  is contemporary beaded art quilts. On my web site, I bill myself as the "Self Proclaimed Button and Bead Queen of Maryland (USA)." 
www.fiberfantasies.com My recent works have images that are based on what I "see" when I tap into a person's energy field and are called Meditation Gardens. These visionary art pieces are the perfect place for that person to play and meditate. For me, they embody the fusion of my healing and visual arts. 
 
 
In my spare time, I'm a rabid, avid "dirty nails" gardener, composing scenes with plants. Sometimes, I come inside so dirty that my clothes have to go straight into the washing machine; they're too dirty for the dirty clothes hamper!

Bragging rights
I've exhibited my beaded art quilts internationally and have been included in a number of books. In my healing practice, I've had the honor of being a LampLighter to help 100s of people cross over. My healing clients have had the luxury of ridding themselves of negative behaviors that have plagued them often for years.

Jennifer Lemmon is a real asset to the practice. She is incredibly empathetic and really listens to you to work to a solution that fits your needs. It's a delight to come in for a visit with her as she gives that old-fashioned care and concern that seems to be missing in so many care givers these days.

Tried to find out if they had iPod 6 covers before going into store. Put on hold for 10 minutes, and then was told nobody was available to take my call. Guess I'll have to go to the Mall to buy an accessory! Let's see what happens when I go in...

Tarrance M with Environmental Systems did a fantastic job today with a leak in my de-humidifier. He was pleasant and quickly got the problem solved. He's a real asset to his company, but then, I've been using Environmental Systems for decades, and all of their technicians are fantastic... I highly recommend the whole company. Even the receptionist with whom I made the appointment yesterday was able to work me in.. GREAT service all around!
