Sarcasm Makes a “Cameo” – Appearance

With grace (I hope), Sarcasm makes a “cameo” appearance in your lives once again. No, seriously, things have not been good for me healthwise as of late, to the point of spending way more time in hospitals than out, and that is just not fair to my readers. One of the issues I had to face was whether or not I had breast cancer – during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As of now, the answer to that one is a tentative no, but in three months –  who knows? But needless to say, there are some other very serious issues … Read more

Sarcasm Has Another Contest!

I have really missed connecting with all of you. There, I said it. However I have had some issues with my health and a death in my immediate family, in addition to losing two Facebook friends. So, this week I am dedicating my blog to Larry Linson, Sr., a wonderful beader, gifted computer programmer, and an amazing friend to me. Many of you know him from the beading groups. I knew him on Facebook, and then he became a “silent” sponsor of this blog and we had many long telephone conversations about politics, family, life in general, where he never failed at … Read more

Sarcasm Stands with The Thin Blue Line

Sometimes it is just better to leave well enough alone. However, when it comes to standing by the Thin Blue Line, I embrace it wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, over a weekend ago, when I changed my personal profile picture on my own private Facebook page to represent our beloved law enforcement (including my own husband), I was attacked and threatened by an individual in social media for it. Due to that attack ON me, the landlord whom I set up a LBS business with to sublet, the bead shop decided that it was ME who was too “controversial” to be allowed on the … Read more

Sarcasm is Rolling with Rivolis – a short tutorial!

It’s that time of year again. You know – the one where the weather is so unpredictable you don’t know whether to wear short sleeves with your boots and shorts, or long sleeves and pants with your flip-flops. Oh, wait – that’s only in Walmart…ha! Really though, the kids are getting out of school and/or graduating and parents everywhere are hiding the breakables and taking out second mortgages to pay for summer childcare. My daughter is lucky though, She has me to watch my grandson all summer while he is out of school, even though my Doodlebug will continue on with … Read more

Sarcasm does a Beaded Bezel Tutorial

Welcome back to another fun-filled week of snark, honorable mentions from the Challenge, some of my beadwork (yes, I have found some time to bead, despite everything that has been going on!), and a tutorial! This is going to be a long one, boys and girls, so grab on to your nearest glass of wine (or whatever else lifts your spirits) and hang on! First, let me apologize about the tone of last week’s posting. I know it was down and depressing, and I apologize. Sometimes though, you just need an outlet for your emotions, and since my family was center stage … Read more

Sarcasm Imagines Peace

If there is one movie character I identify with (besides Scarlett O’Hara), it is Sandra Bullock’s Gracie Hart in Miss Congeniality. I don’t mean the FBI agent part, although, I am a gun-toting, do NOT mess with me when I have gel in my hair and lip gloss on kinda girl. I do mean the part about her really wanting world peace and harsher punishment for parole violators. I mean, Hello??? Recidivism?!?! But, I won’t bore you with my political stances, because that is not why I’m here. So, if you are a regular reader, you know that I participate … Read more

Sarcasm does a Free Tubular Chenille Tute!

Every year without fail, my Mom and I used to go to the local Gem & Mineral Show here in Montgomery, AL to ooooh and ahhhh over all the gorgeous stones and be fascinated (well, I was, anyway) at the lapidary and flint knapping exhibitions. I never realized just how much of an impact it was making on me until I became a TOTAL rockhound, as far as collecting cabochons goes! Apparently, all those trips over the years with her made an impact on me! Now I can not seem to get enough of those beautiful stones that I now … 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
