Sarcasm needs a drink!

I hate election cycles and where I live we are right slap in the middle of an extremely heated municipal election. We vote Tuesday, and just when I thought I had made up my mind (months ago, even) I get a mailer from “my” candidate that infuriated me and drove me straight to the liquor cabinet. I don’t even drink, mind you. Well, except for the “occasional” bottle or two or three of wine….. Since we are talking about elections and drinking, I thought maybe why not share a cocktail recipe? Quick and dirty, just like politricks. The Power Player:  … Read more

Sarcasm has a busy week

Welcome back to another week of snarky beading! So this week has been the week from heck! 5 days of beading and crochet, 4 days of keeping grandbabies, 3 days of getting to work on my beading at my favorite bead shop, The Enchanted Bead with my favorite Bead Fairy, Cyn Wilson, 2 days of of Kindergarten for my grandson, and 1 day of a first birthday party for my Doodlebug! (and a partridge in a pear treeeeeee!)  I can’t believe how time flies. It seems like yesterday we were at the hospital when Jackson was born, and now both … Read more

Sarcasm while eating healthy?

So, to my faithful email subscribers, every once and again (or just whenever the heck I feel like it) I will be posting something random for you get before the rest of the masses get my usual Sunday postings. It could be something like beading, crochet, food, some sort of get you over a barrel drunk cocktail recipe, or just something I feel you just MUST read, like it or not! Anywho, this time I am posting a super yummy, super easy recipe, that also happens to be halfway healthy. If you don’t like/eat pork then to heck with ya! … Read more

Sarcasm Forges Through

Yup, I made a bracelet. I was beginning to wonder if I would even have anything to share with you this week. I got SICK, like 103+ fever sick, a whopper of a sinus infection and severe bronchitis, which developed into pneumonia, and well, suffice it to say, I’m still on breathing treatments that leave me shakier than a crackhead on withdrawal. Being that shaky I have a really hard time holding on to my beading needle to make anything, (not to mention the whole complete lack of energy thing), but my bead muse has been literally just SCREAMING in … Read more

Sarcasm Inherited

Sarcasm comes naturally to me. It is something that I basically inherited and learned from my Dad, who would have turned 66 today. Sadly and suddenly, I lost him 2 years ago. For a long time after he died I had no desire to do anything, and definitely no desire to be creative. But with an amazing support system of family and friends, especially Cyn Wilson of The Enchanted Bead, I began to live my life again, albeit on shaky ground. I finally found my bead muse whispering in my ear that it was time to move on and create … Read more

Sarcasm designs a pattern

My week has been a week of pure Gamma love. What is Gamma love? Gamma love is loving your grandbabies unconditionally at any given time. This week I had my 11 month old Doodlebug Adalyn for 5 straight days (and nights) while she was SICK, SICK, SICK! Only a Gamma can appreciate how to love a child when they are fussy, snotty, coughing, eyes infected, and running four straight days of fever. All of this on top of running a fever above 100 for 2 straight days. Yes, we went to see the pediatrician on the 3rd morning. By the … Read more

Sarcasm faces a challenge

So every month for the last few months I have been participating in the Dry Gulch Beads & Jewelry monthly color design challenge. You can find this month’s challenge here. They post a color pallete every month and you have to design something amazing using those colors. I love the challenge of finding something that will fit withing the color parameters, and they are generous enough to award a $50 gift certificate to their 1st place pick, and a $25 gift certificate to 2nd, to be used in their store or website. This month’s challenge was unique in that it … Read more

Sarcastic Beads and Yarn does Cameo

  Welcome back to another fun filled week of my boring life. No, just kidding. I have been really busy this week with some custom orders on bezeling some resin cameos sent to me to be used as pendants. What is bezeling, you ask? Well, you didn’t, or maybe even you did, but here goes: Bezeling with beads is the art of capturing an object such as a cabochon, button, rivoli, cameo, (just about anything with a flat back and not too steep in height will do) by beading around it either with bead embroidery or with tension peyote or … Read more
