Finished!

I finished my Pitaya Necklace from Jill Wiseman Designs!

I didn't follow the exact design, deciding to replace most of the beaded beads with my Lampwork beads.

I did make a single focal beaded bead, and naturally had to add a bit of fringe!

8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party!

I received my soup!  Kristi Brokaw is my partner and she makes the most awesome glass beads and metal work!  Beautifully packaged:
 Here are part of the ingredients:
 Gorgeous lampwork Bamboo bead with a handmade clasp:
She also included some lovely pearls and amethyst!
I already have a couple of ideas brewing:)

A lot has been happening here...

 Well, we have another couple of kids move in....hopefully temporary:). This is Olivia:
 She is being serious today.  She is 4 months old and a lover of cuddles!

This is her half-sister Marley:

She is 2:). 

If you are a long-time reader of my blog, you know this is not the first time we have taken in foster kids.  Might be the last, however.  I can see why they struggle for homes first hand.  And how broken our system is for these kids!  Not going to start a rant....just sayin'.
