July Update

Can you believe it? I won something else: this precious clip from Briar Claire, via my friend Steph's Green Kiddos blog. (I love that blog, by the way.) Seriously, the last time I won something before my recent spate was in about 1983, when I won five Taco Bell tacos as part of a Girl Scout carnival drawing. Let's see . . . what else? I got really busy at work. Also, I don't want to turn on the air conditioner upstairs in the craft room (and get another $400 electric bill!!!!), so I haven't posted any crafts. But I am planning to start learning to make jewelry this weekend. JoAnn is having 40 percent off all of its beads, crystals, findings, tools, etc., starting on Sunday. I got two great introductory beading books at Half Price Books, plus my jewelry-making sister is coming to visit. I'll post whatever I make unless I'm too embarrassed! Here is one of the books. It's out of print, but it is so cool. I'm super-excited.

Have a lovely weekend!

I'm so excited that you're going to learn to make jewelry! I found someone to give me a lesson tomorrow. I can't wait -- even bought more beads (Michael's clearance). You're going to be amazing at jewelry making!
