Just some beads to share..

Just sharing some pictures of my back log of beads. I'm catching up and going through the pile..
Doing the photo shoots.. and measuring and getting ready to post this batch.. I have about 16 or so , mostly focals.. Just thought I'd share.
This bead was created with cranberry cim.. what a cool reaction on ivory.

this one reminds me of a spine.. runnning through this bead..

Splish splash.. is all this reminds me of

Some sort of eye... I think...

One of my charm beads.. this one has one hole at the bottom to hang something from it or just leave it alone..

Have a great week.. Diane

I am back, its been a while.

Well it has been a while.. but hopefully will be organized now.. Summer is over, it was a really nice summer other than it was so dry that my plants went to seed in just a few weeks..

We went camping as usual, usually I share some of those pictures..only one the lovely seen from a hike we took in new hamspshire.

but its been a tough summer.We are still trying to get use to not having my father in law with us. He passed the day after fathers day, such a hard thing to deal with and think about. We miss him, we will never forget..

On a positive note, I have moved to the day shift in my job.. for 21 years I did the 2nd shift. It worked beautifully while my girls where growing up. Now they are both in college, and making me proud! They are doing such a good job, and making life long decisions for their futures. Education is so important to us.
As you know we have a new kitty named oliver.. and oreo is just finally accepting the fact.. gosh it only took 8 months! Maxie is totally thrilled to have a buddy to play with..

My goal, is to get back to the blogging.. seems like life is settling down. With the girls back to school...I'm thinking of updating to a new dual torch.. (i'm making the sound tool man tailor does when he talks about a big tool or machine..) more power! more fire woo hoo.. for making those beads! I have a huge pile to go through.. some to post, some to create with... so much to do..
Have a great week. Diane
