Bead Soup....Almost

It's that time again...time for the lovely Lori Anderson to work her magic as hostess to the...

And this time I was fortunate to get Andra Marasteanu as my bead partner.
Andra is from Romania so I get to go international this time around ;)
Check out her world of color and here's a sneak peek of what I sent her...

(not very helpful, am I?)

oh, our reveal date is 8/25 so stop by if you get a chance.

Old World

Bead production hasn't been up to par lately due to lazy, hazy summer days.
I did come up with my Tuscany beads the other night though.  
The inspiration, a warm night with a cool fan blowing.....

Back to life...

Back to reality...
and the truth is, i love my reality.  since becoming a single mama, i've been in constant survival mode, falling into a deep sleep each time i hit the pillow late at night.  and although it's incredibly hard work, i hit that pillow with such a huge rush of contentment...we are happy.
here's a few shots from our recent trip to so. cali...

the boys practically lived on the water slides at the resort

becoming confident swimmers

and then there was DISNEYLAND!!!!

 colton finally found his treasure

these two, what a pair
(my dad and mason)

my son became obsessed with palm trees...
he hugged each and everyone of them!

"dude, what are you wearing?!"

exhausted, but happy

we are back home, safe and sound.  the shop is back up and running and orders shipped out...
thank you for your patience

and thanks for letting me share :)
