Sarcasm Says Happy Craft Month!

Happy Craft Month!!!! So….have y’all been getting all crafty? WE HAVE!!!! Well, I say “we”. I actually mean “me”. Poor Becca is poorly so she asked me to guest post.  She has no idea what she’s in for! HAHAHAHAHA!  By the way, Becca will be back next week with that thread review y’all are wanting! A little about me…I’m the guilty party that created the monster  that eventually became Becca’s Beaded Bangles. I’ve been making jewelry for more than 10 years and I’ve crafted all of my life. My style is a bit different than hers though. (don’t tell her … 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 Has Another Winner!

Happy Independence Day America! For those of you celebrating, PLEASE be courteous around pets, and especially near any former combat veterans when it comes to fireworks! It is a traumatic thing resembling gunfire to both of them, and you do not want to be the cause of a PTSD incident! As far as my beading goes this week, I submitted a third entry in the Dry Gulch Color Design Challenge for June (it, nor any of my other entries, won) and also played with my new peanut beads! I have had peanut beads for a while, but these are really cool, because they … Read more

Sarcasm Issues a Challenge (With a Prize!)

Oh.My.Freaking.Heavens.it.is.HOT!!! Living in Alabama in the summer is ridiculous! I mean, it’s only June, and we have already had near 100 degree temps. i am SO dreading August!!! It’s enough to melt my beads! The only thing the heat isn’t melting? The bugs! O.M.G. they are almost as big as my car!  All the more reason to run back inside in the A/C and back to my beads! For those of you who are regular readers, you know I like to participate in the monthly Dry Gulch Color Design Challenge. It is held using a different color palette over on Facebook … Read more

Sarcasm does it like only a Mom can…

Happy Mother’s Day! I spent the day with my babies in their new digs with a wonderful meal, some new perfume, and a gorgeous new diamond ring they got me! As I looked around at my daughter and her family in their new home, I couldn’t help but realize how blessed I am to have such a stable and sensible daughter – one that looks so much like me, but is so opposite of me in so many other ways, lol.  At her age I had just entered marriage and she was already 10 years old and I had no … Read more

Sarcasm does Nothing but (Tubular) Netting…A Tutorial

Wowzers, what a week! I have been busier than a mosquito at a nudist colony this week! Three beaded ropes, a bracelet to finish the design on and bead up, photograph and submit to the Potomac Bead Company Design Challenge 2016, my daughter closed on her new house this week, my LBS is moving to their bigger and closer to me (yippeeee!!!) location (both of which I am helping to move!), and oh yeah, did I mention that I also got selected as PTA President at my grandson’s school for the upcoming year? Sheesh! And on top of all of that? … Read more

Sarcasm Does a Wedding (by Jill Wiseman!)

Did ya miss me? Sorry about not posting last week, but as I mentioned previously, my Sis got married last weekend and I was out of town to participate in her taking of the vows, though I nearly missed the boat on that one, literally! See, she got married on a freaking boat in the middle of the Mobile Bay here in Alabama, and I was running late getting there to begin with, cuz I overslept staying up trying to finish her jewelry. Then, the hubby and I got lost trying to find the boat landing! She was literally standing on the dock … 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
