attention bubbleheads

To keep yesterday's theme going, I made some bubble wand jewelry. Believe me, you're going to want one of these. But you're going to have to make it yourself. I have enough to do. These are copper and silver with little glass beads. I've made them with all sterling before, and those are particularly nice for gifts. I propose an International Bubble Movement (IBM? Hmmm... Sure, why not!) Bubblerheads can get together for Bubble Fests, wand-making parties, and to compare notes on the Best Bubble Juice. We can insist on Bubble Breaks at work. Just imagine if all the smokers who hang around doorways stinking up public air would all become Bubblers instead! What a wonderful world it would be... And we can even include our pets! I've seen flavored bubble juice made especially for dogs. Yum! Bacon Bubbles! Imagine the possibilities!

Now, my friends, get going on your bubble wand jewelry. And I'll share one little tip... take it off when it's bubble blowing time, and then rinse it and dry it before putting it back on. Otherwise you'll have soapy bubble juice all over your clothes, which is generally frowned upon in the corporate world.

(And a quick note on the big hunks of glass in the picture... they're leftovers from some glass factory. I got these in Utah, but I've seen them around in lots of places. Mine live in a flower pot by the front door. Rick will plant petunias there soon, but I can't grow anything but glass.)

Oh this is just too funny: have I told you I work for IBM? I don't go to the office very often, but I'll definitely ask for bubble breaks during those unending meetings we're so good at having... Eh, I might even pass around some beaded bubblewands... Most IBMers I know are funnier than we get credit for!!

Hi Kim,

I love to blow bubbles and I'm 54 years old! I have a big bubble wand I bought at one of the big box stores years ago and it makes incredible bubbles.

Your wands are much prettier and gives me the idea to make some for myself and my great nephews and nieces.

Can you share your bubble potion secret?

I read you lots and look forward to your upcoming changes.

Beadily yours
Susan Feldkamp
