Working hard....

unloading glass from Bullseye: This is a *huge* lot of glass that was just delivered last night. Love that U.P.S. man :)

Making presents for the holidays:
This will be either a bracelet/earring combo or a necklace/earring combo. Haven't decided. It will be very bright and wonderful--I do know that!
Special orders:

My lovely neighbor ordered a fringe bracelet in reds. It took a couple of days, but it's finished--yeah!!
Many other projects are in the works. I'll post more as I get to them :)
