A to Z Blogging Challenge: Dance

She Loves to Dance

Everyone loves her,
The  way that girl dances
They’re crazy with envy
Just look how she prances
She flings both her arms
Wild and high in the air
Then she shimmies
And she moves
Like she just doesn’t care
Her dancing is freedom
There’s joy in her prance
And everyone loves her
That girl,
She can dance

A to Z Blogging Challenge: Crystal

I'm doing the A to Z Blogging challenge. I missed yesterday so this is my second entry for today.

C is for Crystals. I love the sparkle, the facets, the shimmer when I add them to a bracelet or dangle them form a pair of earrings.

Swarovski is my favorite crystal. I don't know what they do to crystals in Austria, but the facets seem crisper and more intricate. the Shimmer of reflected light is so beautiful.

Diamonds may be a girl's best friends. They may cost more and be more desirable, but crystals are magnificent too.

so much for C

A to Z Blogging Challenge: Behind

Yes I am. I'm behind already
Of course I'm behind in my jewelry making. That's old news. Now I'm behind in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. I was really busy yesterday, but that is no excuse. I will make it up today and since I am behind already, I will write on the black board 100 times. "I will not get behind in the A to Z challenge."
"I will not get behind in the A to Z challenge."
"I will not get behind in the A to Z challenge."
"I will not get behind in the A to Z challenge."......

Behind in Life
Okay, so what happens when you get behind in life? Things gradually fall apart. You get stressed. Your entire life dances on the edge. When  you get behind in sleep, for instance, you never get caught up no matter how hard you try. You get behind in your bills and that interest rate makes your balance explode.

A to Z Blogging Challenge: April

I can't believe I agreed to do the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Furthermore, I can't believe it's April already. That means I will blog every day for 30 days ... except Sundays. I suppose I should be grateful that there are only 30 days in the month because I will certainly be crazy by the end..

Each day I will concentrate on a different letter of the alphabet.If you reach my blog and find I'm spouting gibberish, please just punch the next button and come back the next day. I don't want anyone to see me that way.
I know I'm taking the easy way out, but I'm going with April for my first word.

April is one of my favorite months. When I did art and craft shows on a regular basis, April was my high productivity jewelry making month. I stayed in and concentrated on making jewelry so I'd have enough to sell when it was time to begin my endless schedule of  shows and events.

April is wonderful also because both my children were married during the month. My son and…
