I wish there were more hours in the day! Ever day I get up and have a to do list I swear I am going to complete, and every day I make it about 1/4 of the way through the list. There are so many things I want to get accomplished, and I need more hours in the day to get them done!

I am still being challenged with the clubs I've joined. My local bead club has met twice now. I've got another kit from them that is full of beads that I never work with, so again it is going to be a real challenge for me to complete a piece. Which, I suppose, is the point of doing a challenge, to be challenged. So it is certainly working!

I am still struggling with the pieces I am trying to make for the online bead journal. I've started and stopped 4 different projects. The rules are that the pieces has to be the same size each month, so I am struggling finding the right size, that is both interesting, but I can still get it done each month. And I am running out of time, as we are supposed to be ready to start showing our pieces next month, and I still haven't totally completed one piece. YIKES!

Other then that I have been working on these necklaces that I have photographed here. I am kinda excited about these. I've been wanting to do them for a long while now, so it has been fun to finally get them out of my head, and completed. I am looking forward to making more of these, and hoping they will be well received in my etsy store. (Crossing my fingers!)

I recently bought a few mixed media books, primarily mixed media and fabric. I have been reading, and am really looking forward to trying some new techniques, in hopes to be able to combine it with my beading. So hopefully I will have something to show from that in the not to distant future.

Hope everyone is well.

Your necklaces look just lovely, and I know from seeing your work up close that you do beautiful bead work. I just learned to crochet with beads, it is alot of fun.
