A good friend of mine spent a lot of time in the Navy and while there, she ended up being a sharp shooter.  She still shoots and is very good at it.  And then there's me.  My husband wanted me to get my Concealed Carry license and thought I should be able to shoot a gun.  He bought me a gun and we went out to the range.  Talk about being scared.  HOLY MOLY.  The first 10 shots hit the dirt and it didn't get much better after that.  So we took the class and I don't know why I thought they were going to teach me how to shoot.  Well, I was the only one in the class that didn't pass.  There was an 85 year old guy in the class using a revolver, even he passed.  I cried all day.   Now you have to understand, the biggest trophy I have is for trap shooting.  I use to work for Snap-On Tools and they had a woman's trap shooting team.  I had my own 12 gauge, cleaned it myself and loaded my own shells.  So, 30 years later, what's with the little gun thing????  I think getting older has a lot to do with being able to do a lot of things.  Now in Arizona you don't need a license to carry.  The only thing I want to carry is my purse and coupons for Michaels and Joann's.  LOL  Anyway, I found some little gun charms because I wanted to make her some earrings.  They are in the mail now.

I ordered an ornament mold from After Midnight.  My plans were to make a bunch and put them on my tree but life got in the way again.  Tile guys, carpet, dry wall, etc.  At least I got one made and put it on my friend Evelyn's Christmas gift.
OK, I had to publish this blog and then go back and do an edit in order to add another picture.
Is anyone else having that problem?  This is driving me nuts.  I'm going to go over to another web page and try to post again and see what happens.
One good thing about the flood we had is that I have cleaned every closet and cabinet in the house.  Made some critical decisions about getting rid of things I haven't used in a year and got rid of them.  It feels so good to go to a closet and find things now.  I have two more storage areas and the garage to do and then I'm done. 
Hope you have a wonderful and healthy New Year.  I hope to be able to more polymer clay and beading now that I have the closets cleaned.  LOL

I bet your friend will get a kick out of those earrings, Bonnie! I love your ornament... looks so rich, like brocaded fabric.

Hope your blogging issues get sorted... I have noticed a few other bloggers voicing similar complaints recently. Possibly there are changes being made to the platform which are causing incompatibilities?

Hope 2014 is filled with only good things!
