5 Tips For aspiring wire artists

I am not pro but I like to take pride in m work. I think its fairly good some some tips I have learned are now for you. Shuuussssh Don't tell anyone;)

1) Invest in good pliers and snips
It really is worth the investment. I made the mistake in the start of using poor quality and it destroyed what could have been good work.

Some stores over charge on wire. Give a few shops a try first.

3) Make your own needles.
If you need a double strand of wire make your own needle not only will it fit the bead your working with or part. You wont be caught stuck needing a needle on the chance you do not have one. This also leaves you chance to work better with glass beads. They shatter easily.

4) DO not seal your wire
I am serious do not seal it in any type of acrylic, Gel, Spray, Glue. You can ruin the copper then you are right at the start.

5) Wrap TIGHT.

I know how painful it is on the hands. But wrap as tightly as you can. Not only are you ensuring long lasting life it makes it look better. Pull with pliers to make it even tighter. always use extra.

They never told me I would Realize What I wanted to do

By encountering a real life situation.

I was planning on attending school come January to become an Administrative Medical Office Assistant.
I thought this would be perfect for me. I had thought of social work over the years and my larger than life heart I thought would lead me wrong.
I get attached easily, I open the door for too many, I want to save the world. I also wear my heart on my sleeve.

With that being said I felt that getting into social work would lead to heart ache caused by getting too attached to the client. However I had  a realization last week that I can indeed get attached with out getting too attached to someone, What I did made me very proud.

I was on the bus and a woman came on she appeared to be in her 30's. Clearly intoxicated beyond control Everyone thought she was a "Loser" "drunk" or "Sick" I knew the signs as soon as I looked at her. Her eyes held pain and I knew she needed help but I wont lie I was afraid to even talk to her, Not knowing what she was on or how she would react I started watching her. Realizing the eyes she was giving people where that of pain and wanting help.

I got off the bus at the subway station and listened to her stumbling about I started thinking of how guilty it was of me and how I could not let her get near the tracks if she could not keep her balance I was afraid of her falling over. Getting killed was a major possibility with her. Given that she could not walk straight and kept falling over. I waited at the bottom of the escalator and decided to take my chances and approach her.

I touched her arm gently and said
"Are you alright"
She sneered and said "What the F**K do you care"
I replied with "I care because you are human as am I and we should help each other"
She started crying and collapsed on me
So I guided her to a bench and asked her what she was on
Her eyes rolled back and she said "Herion and she said you know you are the first to care... and ask "are you ok ""
I was immediately alarmed but kept calm and asked her how much did you take
She told me not enough I then knew she was not going to OD In the middle of my speaking with her as she was shaking ready for her next "Hit".

I started talking to her deeply about life and my history and just asked her
"Is this worth it"
She said "No, I have a 5 year old daughter I think shes starting to know"

We got coffee and in the span of half an hour I convinced her that permitting as I will not force her I will go with her and support her and take her to rehabilitation.
After talking some more she said
"Yes but will it hurt "
I said"Of course but a week of hell is worth  a life of happiness with your daughter, Do you want your 5 year old to have to bury her Mother or be proud of what her Mother overcame?"
She said "I want her to be proud"

With more talking we made our way into down town and I escorted her into as I kept calling it sanctuary. She after speaking with nurses admitted her self with my help into a one year locked rehabilitation. She will not be able to leave the institution for half a year  to one year pending recovery. I also called her mother and tied up the loose ends regarding her daughter and offered to remain in Let's call her "K" for short, Life to help her in this hard time as her sponsor but nothing more .

I am really proud of her firstly for doing this. The first step is indeed the hardest. And I am proud of my self for being able to do this and not get fully attached.
With this being said I am changing my career path to Drug addiction and Mental health Psychiatrist / Counselor/Social worker. I feel this is the right choice.

Many people have turned to me over the years and feel I am easy to trust and talk to perhaps it is my no bullshit mentality? Or perhaps I am raw and real I have battled addiction , I have been homeless , I have built an empire and lost it, I am truly human I am me nothing more nothing less nor do I feel the need to be.

Signing off for now

They never told me how to make Fruit leather

I found this great recipe for fruit leather I want to try it with pineapple then add nuts when done cooking <3 yum

<3 The Mom

  • 1
    Core, peel and slice a bushel of red apples and place them in a large stock pot.
  • 2
    Add 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to the pot. Cover and boil until it resembles apple sauce.
  • 3
    Reduce the heat and simmer another 45 minutes.
  • 4
    Spray your baking sheets with cooking spray and spread the contents of the pot onto the sheets.
  • 5
    Place the baking sheets in a 140- to 150-degree oven. It takes 10 to 12 hours to dry the apple leather for your edible underwear.
  • 6
    Lay out your apple leather on plastic wrap to prevent it from sticking to your countertops. Lay another piece of plastic wrap over the top to keep it clean until your ready cut it.

They never told me about this drink

2 Cups Califlower Leaves
1/2 Cup fresh Ginger

1 Clove Garlic
Half Lemon Rind and all

1/2 Cup grapes
1 bunch of Spinach FRESH

They never told me one person could make my day awesome

 I was having a rather. Shitty  , Terrible, Dragging.

Ok just plain garbage morning. Walking to the Doctors as my whole household is sick. A man came out of the mall just looked at me the man and the girl and said

" What beautiful people, One love , One love."

I pondered that "One love" line for a split second and beamed I said "You are as well".

Frankly he turned my crap-tacular day into something awesome. With that very simple gesture Sir if you happen to peruse the internet and see this I want to say thank you.
You brought up my day immensely and I appreciate that.

Where I am getting with this post is we as brothers and sisters very much so need to remember that we are all bound by this planet called "Earth". Unanimously bound by cosmic forces we will never understand. We need to treat one another better Do not glare if someone looks at you, Smile compliment, Small things like this go so very far.

Much Love , One Love
