Is it Fall Yet?

Folk Art Table Topper can be found jumping www.silverymoonbeams.Etsy.com

Feel like jumping for joy! Fall is in the air! At last!
You can find other items that are Fall and Mabon related on SilveryMoonbeams.Esty.com

When the nights grow shorter and the wind moves through the trees with a gentle hiss of cool, I am back home.
Sure has been a long time.

When I was trying to access the Internet, it has been a hit and a miss.
I have only been on line enough to add a few listing to my Etsy shop, and
fingers crossed that I will be able to continue to keep this blog up and running. Seems like an entire year since I have been able to post.

Not my fault. What I have been doing is listing all of my books in the library.

Mike purchased a scanner for our extensive collection and now, I have been working to get them listed.

The scanner was from Book Collections and boy, this is the greatest little scanner. It is a small handheld about the size of a match book, you can scan an entire shelf of books and it up loads them to your computer by the books ISBN number code, It then scans for the information of the book and the cover of the book that you have scanned.

Amazing, I have been scanning forever! The only feature that I am Never going to look at again is the total cost of the collection, Last I looked, I almost fainted. So, I will Never look at that section again!
I can say, Mike will be a billionaire some day! lol

This past July I turned officially an old lady! However, Medicare has taken its amount and I have to get a doctor to treat me as the post hospital has kicked me out! I collected my bundle of papers called my records this morning and tomorrow I see a new internist.
He is 5 miles from here and well recommended.

I will cut this first post back and looking forward to visiting with you and sharing the adventurers of a senior citizen.

I am also behind in my Amazon Vine reviews, Not that I have not read the books, the advanced proofs...just could not stay on line long enough to get the reviews posted, without then being trashed. Sure hope this connection is much more stable than the last connector.

As always,
May you walk in the moonlight till the wind sets you free.

Oh! Almost forgot, I lost Bumblebee.com to another, so will be looking for another web site this season. I might try it as SilveryMoonbeams. Who knows? :)

Leather Book Covers

Hi, Just thought I would jump in and say hello. Some of you have e:mailed me asking if I were still alive...lol
Yep, Only the good die, not the old!

Been busy with the Etsy store and the gardens. Here in Arizona it has been blooming to beat the band.
Lavenders, lilacs, roses about to pop..
Grass grows faster than we can mow.

The fish are enjoying the sun and alas the frog decided to visit heaven.

The leather foto to the left , are new items added to Etsy.
This is a dark leather stitched in metallic threads to replicate the Southwestern tooling designs ...only it is threads.
It is a thin bookbinders leather ready to be made into a journal of framed.
It measures 25X16 plenty of length for a large journal or whatever.

Close up of the stitches in a floral design. I wish my camera was a better one as it does not capture the sparkle and beauty of this design.

This big guy is also a Design stitched on leather,
He measure rs 26 x 10 and can be framed or made into yet another journal.

This is a thread intense design and it stitched out without one thread break!

You can view other leather units on my Etsy shop..


I have my eyes on you...seems like he is speaking this as we look into his eyes.

Hope all is well with each and every one of you and your families.
Chat soon,
As always,
May you walk in the moonlight till the wind sets you free.

Hold A Shamrock in your hand ...


Hold a shamrock in your hand,
Catch a leprechaun if you can,
Pipes and drums
The St. Patrick's Day fun never grows old!

It has been such a very long time that I have posted, loads of activities that I spoke of in December.
I have had both eyes up graded from blind to
20/20 and 20/30 .. With a need to use reading glasses to thread a needle.

All of my life I have worn glasses and I find myself punching in between my eyes ...looking for glasses.

The one thing that was so wonderful with my new eyes...the colors of the world are ever so clear and bright and beautiful...and...since for years I cold not see ...cob webs up high ...tons of dust every where....my dear hubby said to me ...perhaps you should get your old eyes back and this house keeping is killing me....
It has been such and slow and steady plodding to clean.
After the eyes I started back on the testing for new medicine for the Lupus. It's not so terrible bad if I go slow ....

I have been active with the Etsy Shop and with the Bookbinding Team on Etsy. I have finished a recent swap and the books were so clever. I will be collecting pictures later in the week and posting to you.
Ordering many different papers to test, and will be sharing the results with you regarding the quality and price and location to purchase fine papers.

I am awaiting plates for a Letterpress Machine that is ready for new colors of paints.
Paper Source has a gold and a silver offered as well as a beautiful dark brown speedwell ink.
I am anxious to experiment with the 4X6 letterpress covers for journals.

So you see, I may have not been posting but, I sure have been getting ready for another year of Sierras Creations, Silvery Moonbeams and Bumblebee Lane and the products that will grace the pages of my shop.

In a different line of discussion I have two air brush machines...one for paints and the other is for makeup. When I was in Europe, this was a late craze...as the price of these air brush makeup brushes have come way down .... very affordable to all for home use.
It is a bomb .... you can apply eye shadow and eye liner that is so light you can not tell you are wearing any make up.
I am sure that the use has had this but, I never have been around big cities living in the desert.

I wait for the news regarding Medicare and how it will affect payments and benefits...I am approaching this stage of my life and my prayers tonight are that our lustrous leader will get his mind and efforts on what his people really need...jobs!
No strong armed back street deals the Chicago way.
In a recent movie Eliot Ness ....Shan Connery was telling another that the Chicago way is this....When they send one of ours to the hospital we send 2 of theirs to the morge ....That's the White House Way! Enough of the soap box ....

So, wear your reen, eat your cornbeef and cabbage and think of me who cannot have any green beer again this year ....:(

May you walk in the moonlight till the wind sets you free.
