We are looking for our summer vacation destination.  We know we want to go to the beach.  My perfect vacation would be to enjoy the beach, yes.  Then add places where we can  learn how people make cheese or wine or so many other things.  Does this sound like I am a total geek?  So I am on research mode for our family vacation destination.  Any suggestions?

On the artistic side, I am deeply looking for my creative niche.  Wonderful discoveries.

Something about these colors

Certain colors just brighten my day and make me smile.  These greens are just those colors. 

On Sunday, my parents celebrated 39 years of marriage.  My brother and sister-in-law celebrated their one year annniversary.  So much experience and so many discoveries.   I wish them joy and happiness.

Industrial Look more journal

Spent sometime making another necklace.  Michael's is carrying a new jewerly findings/elements line called Industrial Chic.  I heard about it here.  It's fabulous.  Did I already say it was fabulous?  It is.  Gorgeous.  There is a little red car I want, but Michael's actually sold out of the car already. 

Didn't I say so last time?  I can't stop making journals.   For this journal, I decided to make it a bit thicker than usual. It took a while, but I love the results.  Oh, JOY!!!

Around the wrist

I made these bracelets for my son's teachers in appreciation for what they do. The tags are dyed with coffee and embellished with lace. The bracelets are attached with jewerly rings along with a ribbon. I re-used some cellophane bags and stapled the top with red staples.
