My latest beaded creation. A bracelet, pin and necklace set. It seemed to take forever!!!!! As always it didn't turn out how I imagined it but I do like it. I'm working on another bracelet/necklace set using the same gold hex-cut bead as in this set and royal purple hex-cut beads. The center/focal is a paua shell cabochon that is purple in color.

Other than beading and going over to visit Mom and Dad things are pretty slow. So, I'm going to waddle back over to the couch and get back to beading until I drink all my iced tea and then off to bed.

Goofing around in the car while on our way to Ocean Shores, Washington. I get bored so easily and it's a darn good thing I have a camera to keep me busy. Sadly, the batteries died the night before our drive home. So, I bought a book, "101 people you won't meet in heaven" and read it on the way home. Interesting book on serial killers and the such. A very quick read and I could have added quite a few more people to the book and made it about 1001 people....

Not much really going on. Just thought I'd stop in and add another photo. Hope everyone is doing well and having a great beginning to Spring! Big Squishy Hugs!

Mom's 80th Birthday Celebration at Ocean Shores

HEE HEE HEE! I tried to take a photo of Mom blowing out the candles. My camera was a bit too slow so I got her leaning away from the cake, the smoke from the candles, and my sister, Cathie, in the mirror. This was just too funny!

We had a great time at Ocean Shores. Staying at the hotel with the small casino and a restaurant was very nice. Aunt Billie, Shawn and I tried to walk on the beach on Saturday. It was so windy and cold that we didn't make it very far. But, Shawn found some bird bones and skull so I got them in my red bucket and brought them home! LUCKY ME! We did find a few shells but we didn't really stay too long on the shore. It started raining and got even windier so we were back in our rooms in no time to warm up and hit those slot machines!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend and that your week will be filled with joy and fun creativity!
