New Beads

I've spent loads of time over the last week or so making beads. I haven't photographed most of them. Too busy trying to have enough stuff to make jewelry with for my upcoming show (Indiana Artisan, 1st weekend of April, Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis). But here are a few new beads still on the mandrel:

and made these beads with it:

These aren't beads, but I did make them several years ago. (WARNING! Proud mom moment). They are all dressed up because they both participated in MMUN (Montessori Model United Nations) My daughter was a delegate for Myanmar (our city has the largest Burmese population outside of Myanmar), and my son was on the dais.

The kids all dressed up for Montessori Model United Nations. Chloe is a delegate for Burma. Ethan is on the dais.

A few weeks ago hubs and I went to Florida because he was taking a review course for his boards recert coming up at the end of March. He was busy. I wasn't. The weather was perfect and I enjoyed the relaxation and extra sleep. A couple mornings I did wake up a bit early. One of the first things I would do is look out the window. There would be little messages spelled out in towels on the pool chairs:

I kind of love that idea...waking up to a surprise little motivational message. Maybe I will try to do something like that for my family. Although I kind of wish they would do it for me instead. lol! Have a great week. I've been trying to update my facebook page more frequently with lots of photos and "stuff". So if you like that sort of thing (eye candy, etc), then make sure you like the Glass Addictions facebook page.

Thanks Kumi and Wendy! Glad you like them. Kumi, I will probably be adding these to my shop in the very near future once I am comfortable with show stock :-)

The beads are absolutely stunning!

Good luck at your show.

Your other 2 creations look extremely dapper and ready for the UN as well!

What a lovely thing to wake up to on vacation. I would be happy enough just to wake up in Florida :)
