Purchase of glass, to make beads - $67
Time spent making beads - several hours
Look on mom's face when I said I was going to tell the blog world she disliked my beads - PRICELESS!!!
I seriously wish I had my camera in hand when I told her that. The look on her face was worth a truckload of words :)
Yesterday I worked on making beads for a project. There are only four beads out of about 30 beads that I kept. And yes, it was a consensus between mom and I that we didn't like the beads that I made yesterday. Those beads went into the seconds!!!!
Enamel, enamel, enamel; saw, saw, saw; make beads, make beads and make beads.
Right now mom and I are in major production mode. We have a one day show on September 18th, a two-day show on September 24th and 25th, a two-day show on October 8th and 9th and a three-day show in November. I think we are in panic mood because we usually sell really well at the first two shows and the October show is a new show for us, so we aren't sure how we will do there. So, production, production, production!!!
Enough with the words, let me share some photos!

I think I gave her the stomach bug that I have had all week. The one good thing about this stomach bug is that I have lost three pounds, though not the way I want to do it. I am still not eating a lot, and I thought I was starting to feel better yesterday, but it hit mom and I about the same time and we weren't too happy about it. But, we persevered and worked and got a lot accomplished; at least I think we did.
I am about done here. I am heading home to work out and then crash on the couch. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!
