The start of a new place to share

After many mental notes, reminding myself of this and that (of which I usually forget anyway), time has come to share my musings aloud. Several times throughout the day I have these great creative thoughts (well, I think they're great) and make myself a mental note.
Several hours pass & if you know me well enough, you know that my work day is SO jammed packed, that by the time those hours pass, those creative ideas/thoughts/inspirations have long been stored in the "I forgot" pile.

Here's my place to jot them down.
This will be my place to share them with others.
My hope is that this will help me get back to more of my creative side.
And inspire others to feed off of inspiration and creativity that I might share.

From time to time, you may see me run an idea by readers for the Boutique (see below).
Its always nice to have thoughts and opinions from others - and I truly welcome comments of all kinds!

I call it the Fast & Furious beader for a couple of reasons:
#1 - I'm a bead addict
#2 - I not only make jewelry and the like from beads, I also make beads of glass
#3 - My lifestyle fits the words perfectly: fast & furious (never a dull moment)
#4 - I like that movie !

While I'm full of opinions & most of the time you'll know what I'm thinking because I wear it on my sleeve - I do keep my personal life rather private.

About me:
- For 10 years I've been advising clients on what to do with their money - I am a Financial Advisor, Branch Manager, and Registered Principal with one of the leading independent broker/dealers in the country. This is my full time career and first business love!
- For almost 7 years, I've had a love of beading and all things bead related. So much so, that I now own a retail store in Pitman, NJ. Talk about a bead-a-holic ! Its my home away from home. Love love LOVE my customers !!
- 10 years & going strong - I'm engaged to a wonderful man that has stood by my side in all of my endeavors. He's my soulmate and so lucky to have found him. We'll get married when we're ready, so don't ask!
- Other things I enjoy: my little fuzzball kitty, educating people about money, teaching people new beading techniques, public & motivational speaking, making glass beads, checking in with my beading Fast Friends from eBay, and gardening (when I have time.)

So - off to another busy day - here's hoping the inspiration / "virtual notebook" pays off !!

  1. Well Amy, let me be the first to comment. I first discovered you on Ebay. Drawn by that fast and furious,beadmaking,multitasking,kittyloving attitude.
    And although we have never met in person. I feel a kindred spirit in the Bead world.
    Thanks for all of you that you do share. It's nice to know that we aren't crazy...Just crazy for hot glass...
