Hmmm, will it happen?????

I just asked my daughter what was on the agenda today..........I don't know why.............truly I don't. On the week-ends, in theory, I am suppose to be off duty.............so I have the option of going with them or doing my own thing........well my own thing is pretty limited (you know the getting lost thing), so I like to check out what is on their schedule and see if it includes me.......today is a no agenda day........it's up for grabs..........so I am thinking that I would like to work on my jewelry.......I have been quite lax lately.



What I would like to do is make my own beads........yup, I bead my own beads......it's really quite easy, just looks complicated and the first row after loading is like pulling my hair out one piece at a time.......or trying to put my overextended girth into a petite little chair at a fancy tea party........but once that is accomplished it's just fun..........hmmm, let me see if I took pictures of the first set of beads I did........

I was going for a Halloween color scheme.........all of the other ladies in the class that day were doing beautiful fall colors, bright and cheery combos, dark chocolate delights and they just kept looking over at mine, you know, with that sad look on their face, like....."poor thing, we don't dare tell her how icky those colors are together.....". Now let me see if I have photo of the finished product.........gave it to my daughter for her birthday..........

Seems neither one of the photos are that good..........so I put 2 not so good photos up, so you could kinda sorta put them together and come up with a semi-good photo..........hmmmm, once I make a few beads - and the reason I like doing that is - no one else will have the same bracelet, necklace, no one, isn't that rather neat?- I would like to work on my first watch bracelet.......a super fantastic lady sent me a watch face a bajillion months ago and I am just now getting up the courage to use it.............it's like I was afraid that once I "tried" and if it didn't turn out, I wouldn't be able to take it apart (always a sad thing to do) and start over..........oh well, another fact you have learned about me..........I like to do it right the first time..........and trust me, rarely do I do that, so I am frustrated quite a bit of the time.........but sometimes I just break out into the huge and silly giggle............yup, some of my learning experiences are just plain silly............

Well I rambled today........ooooo before I forget, remember you can enter as many times as you want to in the Halloween give-away.......two, three times in one day if you like.........some ladies have many many many entries already........and I know, I know, it only takes one to win, but the more you have in the pool, the better the chances are that you can win.............

Smile this Saturday.......it will make not only yourself, but someone else happy too.............

Don't let those other jewelry makers get to you. Just do your own thing!
