Saturday was a busy day up until about 2:00pm when I went home with a headache. I worked on making beads and mom worked on getting her toilet fixed. Mom and I are jinxed with toilets. We have to change the innards for both of our toilets every few years and it is a pain in the butt (hmm, didn't think of that as a pun). I am going to have to change the innards of my second bathroom toilet again and it has been less than six months since I replaced the innards the first time. Like I said, we are jinxed with our toilets.
Here are the beads I made. I am in a purple phase right now and I am sure I will move in soon. I made the sugar beads for an enameled skull pendant that I have a design for a necklace. The other beads are a flat bead, clear with frit, and hollow beads with frit. I haven't made hollow beads in a long time, because I am not too good at making them. Overall I am pretty happy with the way the beads turned out.

Today I worked on finishing up enameling the leaf bowls from last weekend and mom finished up sawing out a bowl and a piece we are giving a friend for her baby shower. I can't wait to see the finished piece with the enamels. Here is a peek of the bowls and the baby gift.

While mom was working on cleaning, vacuuming and washing her car and my car I worked on taking photographs of a lot of our inventory and making two necklaces. Here are the two necklaces I worked on.

Oh, three things I am happy/positive today:
1. Both mom and I got a lot accomplished today
2. I love what I do - enameling, jewelery, lampworking, etc.
3. I have a wonderful, awesome, great, fantastic mom!!!! (oh and mom starts her new job tomorrow - so I am excited about that)
I hope you all had a great weekend and got a lot accomplished like we did.
