Heather’s Ramblings

After some thought and weighing the pros and cons, I have decided to move my blog to my original blog home at Blogger.  From now on you can find my blog postings at www.squareonebeads.blogspot.com.

WordPress has been a fine host but I now find that I need the extra flexibility that I get with Blogger.  Please come and visit me there.  And if you have my blog linked to your blog, I would appreciate it if you would please update the link to reflect the new location.

Thank you

Part three of my ‘Shaking up the Muse’ series has been published on Watch Me Create.  If you are interested in seeing how the latest in my tarot series is progressing please check it out here.  Please let me know what you think of my series as it progresses.

Greetings! I just wanted to share a new blog of mine with all of you. This new blog will only cover topics related to skin care. I will answer your questions and cover seasonal topics as they come to me. Please check out Skin Care by Heather and see what’s up. Maybe your question will be the first to be featured on my blog 🙂

I have one of the sweetest hubbies in the world. For Valentine’s Day he didn’t get me flowers or candy. Instead he got me something that will last much longer and I will enjoy much more. A new set of pots and pans, All-Clad pots and pans to be exact.

I am not being sarcastic. I like to cook and I like to cook using good quality tools. My mixer and blender are Kitchenaid, my knives are Wustof-Trident, but my pots and pans until today were crap.

I ordered the All-Clad 9 piece set from Cooking.com. The delivery information I got said they would be here the 23rd but they arrived today. Unfortunately, today I worked until after 7 so ended up going thru a drive thru rather than making dinner in my new pans. Otherwise I wouldn’t have eaten until 9pm and that is just to late for me to be eating dinner.

Anyway, I just wanted to share my excitement with all of you and show off my new pans. Aren’t they pretty? I can’t wait to use them. You’ll be getting a lot more cooking entries from me now that I’m not embarrassed to let people see what I cook with. 🙂


I’ll be sure to let you all know what I think of them after I use them.

I would like to introduce you all to a fellow Creative Blogger, Kelly Drill.  Kelly’s blog Macaroni and Glue is a fun blog combining her work, family, and friends that I think you would really like.  Be sure to take a few moments to check it out this week.

I am pleased to announce that Carol O’Connell has won my cuff bracelet and Donna Barksdale has won my email list surprise.

Ladies, thank you for participating and I hope you love your prizes.

Thank you to everyone who participated by either viewing participating blogs or participating yourself. I can’t wait to do this again next year!

Just a reminder, the end of my OWOH giveaway is almost hear.  At midnight tonight I will cut off entries for this giveaway and announce the winner on the blog tomorrow morning.

Good Luck all of you!
