You’re invited to join in my latest activity

My latest endeavor is participating in a craft fair organized by some of the residents of the Mobile Home Park where I have lived for 12 years, in Canoga Park, CA.  Some of the ladies in the park spend their free time creating beautiful things such as jewelry, clothing, home decor and Christmas items.  Our show is coming up next weekend on Nov. 8.

I am in the process of gathering together all the goodies I want to display at my table.  I will have many Christmas items such as a handmade ladies vest, several earrings I made, some I bought years P1560135ago, and a gorgeous necklace in red, green, & other beads on a silver chain.  Picture doesn’t do it justice. It glows with Christmas spirit.

I have been working to identify and price each item and in the process I thought it would be a good idea to inventory what I had and where I  kept it.  I found 146 necklaces that I had created but hadn’t sold.  I have at least 10 more up for sale this month on my Etsy shop.  That’s just a portion of what I have made, sold, or given away over the years.

And the earrings, OMG, the earrings!  When I have a few pieces that just don’t fit into a necklace or bracelet they become earrings.  I have some old beaded Christmas earrings up for sale that I made a long time ago.  It may sound strange, but I get pleasure from creating something that someone might enjoy wearing.

If you happen to live in my home town, Canoga Park, or the vicinity of the San Fernando Valley, CA., the show will be at 8811 Canoga Ave., Canoga Park on Nov. 8 from 9-3.  You won’t be disappointed at the variety of beautiful creations made by my talented neighbors.

Just in case you can’t make it to the show, you can view my creations at http://mizmlu.etsy.com.  Expired items can be renewed if you are interested.

Endeavor snubbed the San Fernando Valley

If you live in the San Fernando Valley in California as I do and wanted to see the last flight of the Endeavor you would have had to leave the Valley and go to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, probably the closest place to get a glimpse of it.  It did not fly over even the smallest portion of the San Fernando Valley which, by the way, is quite large.  All those who live here and hoped to see the Endeavor drove up to the top of Topanga, which offered a wide view of the Valley, waited in vain for a sight, and were disappointed.  We weren’t even on the list.  According to Doug McIntire of the Daily News we are the Prince Harry of Los Angeles.

The Valleyites deserved a fly over – the main engines which propelled Endeavor into space were built in Canoga Park.  Several other companies and individuals in the Valley contributed to the invention and progress of human flight, but we got no flyby.  This hurts.  1.76 million Valley residents got the ultimate snub.

Secession was up for discussion several years ago, but failed to be adopted.  Maybe we should reconsider.
