So I just spent a few days with some of the most talented and amazing men & women you could ever hope to meet or gather in one room......The SWAROVKSI ELEMENTS Ambassdors! The Ambassadors were invited to the North American Swarovski Headquarters in Cranston, RI recently but before we invaded the offices quite a large group of us made a splash at fellow ambassador Debra Saucier's store The Bead & Wire Shop for a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassador's Meet & Greet. What a sparkling turnout!!!! We had a blast with the customers as well as had some time to talk and enjoy being together! A huge thanks to Deb & her family for hosting all of us!!!!!
Here is myself, Tammy Honaman, Sandra Lupo, Stephanie Dixion (The Dixon Chick) and Lilian Chen on the bus heading to meet the rest of the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassador gang
at The Bead & Wire Shop
Tammy with a few of her fans!!!
The talented Diane Whiting holding a copy of Jewelry Affaire Magazine with my necklace on the cover!!!
Deb Saucier, Owner of The Bead & Wire Shop and I taking pictures of each other taking pictures of the festivities at her store during the event
Stephanie Dixion was doing demo's in the front of The Bead & Wire Shop. Everyone loved her demo's!!! She was later teaching all of us a few beady & sparkling tips, love the Dixon Chick!!
We got to the offices, mingled, talked, brainstormed, saw the new innovations and showroom in person, trained on products that we love even more now after Nick Regine shared a bit of his knowledge and expertise with us, a fabulous dinner and well to say that we had a sparkling time is a bit of an understatement! a big thank you Nicole, Nick, Barbara,Rebecca, Kim and everyone else at Swarovski for your time it was greatly appreciated!!!
Two super talents! Jamie North & Leslee Frumin at the Swarovksi North American Headquarters
Me and Jamie North, love this gal!
We have invaded the offices! Let the games begin!
Dinner was fabulous but the company was even more sparkling! Here are Monica Han, Brenda Schweder, Lilian Chen , Debbie Simon and Jamie North, seriously it doesn't get much better than this!
It was totally dark other than all of the cell phone lights, everyone was busy texting and facebooking about everything we were doing! Such fun!!
Nick Regine, our guru! We definitely paid attention when he talked!
Stephanie Dixion & Katie Hacker ( truly one of the most talented yet gracious people I know)
Our group of Ambassadors is an amazingly talented group whose talents are as varied and diverse as the cities and country's that we are all from. You have those that make stitching a bracelet or amazing necklace look so easy that you shake your head with wonder, others that can wire crochet a necklace, meet new friends and still be the life of the party all at the same time, some that are already so well known in our industry that they will amaze you with their graciousness, kind words and talent to the point that you are speechless. There are Ambassadors that are so talented that I have no doubt you will be hearing their names even more and more as time goes on........truly a wonderfully giving, talented and totally amazing group of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassadors that I am delighted to call my friends!

Is there a better way to start a holiday weekend than with the Blue Angels flying over the bay, Cherry Festival about to start, friends, family, cookouts and lots of fabulous fireworks?
I don't think so.........it is the perfect way!
Seeing the Blue Angels is always a highlight for me since I was a little girl and to now be able to share that with our daughters is an absolute delight!!
Cherry Festival in Traverse City, MI is the kickoff and celebration of all that is cherry and for me, not much compares to a fabulous fresh cherry or cherry pie from
the World's Cherry Capital!
Amazing Lake Michigan sunsets, didn't get to see the Northern Lights on this vist but this sunset was pretty amazing....check out the rays.......it was like the Northern Lights but during sunset. Beautiful, the picture still doesn't do it justice!
Fireworks, again who doesn't like those?? The little assistants thought they were pretty fabulous this year as we got to see several great firework shows!!!
Again the pictures don't do the sparkling fireworks shows justice but well, had to share! Then of course at midnight, it was my birthday!! What a great way to start a special day! Friends, family, fireworks, cherry pie, amazing sunsets, sunny days on the beach......equals a perfect holiday weekend.
Hope you had a sparkling weekend as well !!!
God Bless the USA!

Hi everyone! Been a little remiss lately in posting but that is all about to change! Lots happening around the Beach Haus Studio's so will be sharing bits & pieces of it in the coming weeks.......
Spring has definitely sprung down south! Recently, we got to visit the cutest little town called Gruene, TX. Adorable mills, right on the river (not far from San Antonio) and fabulous little shops full of all kinds of great gifts, clothes and baubles!I just loved this Ice Cream sign.......how can you not? We love ice cream in the Beach Household and the old charm of this sign made me stop and snap a picture or two! Yummmm. The Country Fresh Egg sign was a favorite as well.
Funny, I have learned through the years that you never know where inspiration is going strike and what beautiful intesting designs that you can come up just by getting out and about, taking your camera with you and just soak up all of the simple charms that surround all of us each day. Try it, you might be surprised at what you see that you didn't see before, colors, textures, layers and so much more.
Just wanted to share a few of my Bluebonnet pictures. I love Bluebonnets, no only because they are the Texas state flower but they are so happy and the blues just pop right out and grab you as you are passing them. They make me smile and inspire me!
Enjoy your day and go out and get inspired!!!
