Spring Flowers

I love photographing flowers, I found these at the San Antonio Zoo this weekend:

From my garden, one of my tiffany rose bushes produced it first flower this weekend:

Have a fantastic spring!

I sure could use a break from school! Spring Break wasn't very relaxing, I had guests over and I made a QuinceaƱera (15th) cake - I only had 3 days off from work and that time was spent buying stuff I needed for the cake. Didn't have enough time to study for my Biology exam that I took last night... I'm worried that I won't do too good... I keep telling myself I need to focus on my classes, but sometimes it's hard when I'd rather be playing with beads or PMC.

I need to work on updating my website my website.

I worked on my nephews website a little bit, I hope he does great!

I also need to work on a new website for Crystal Box Studio.... She has great stuff, but her website doesn't reflect that.

Busy, Busy Spring

Spring Break? Ah I wish I could relax, well not just yet. I still have to work. The college I work at will only be closed on Thursday and Friday for Spring Break and Monday for Good Friday.

I have been so busy, I haven't even posted about how great my PMC class was, my instructor Lisa was great... check out her website at Irene (My sister-in-law) and I took the class. It was so much fun! I now find myself dreaming up new designs in everything I do.

At work, my supervisor has had to resign her position for medical reasons. I am going to miss her so much. She has always encouraged me in all of my projects. If it wasn't for her I would of never tried making marshmallows from scratch. But, at least our friendship will last. We are going to plan a trip to New York for just the two of us, hopefully early next year.

On other news, my husband got a website. Its called Local Guide SA (San Antonio), he will be posting his own reviews from local San Antonio restaurants where he likes to dine at. He works downtown, adjacent to the Alamo so he has a good insight as to where to eat downtown. I hope he gets a lot of visits to his site; that is all he is looking for.

As for my jewelry, it has taken a back seat to school. I need this semester to be over so I can concentrate on selling my Jewelry. This past weekend my mother-in-law and I designed a few PMC Silver Pendants, and last night I made an Onyx and Sterling silver 3-piece set to give my niece who is turning 23. I hope she likes it.

I am making a debut cake for a 15 year old (QuinceaƱera). She is the daughter to the minister that performed the wedding ceremony for my husband and I. I find makings cakes so stressful, even though when I’m done I enjoy seeing what I have accomplished.
