I’ve been drawing some colored pencil fruit.

The eyes have it.


The girls were drawing eyes… I had to share. I love how they are each developing their own style.


New beads are up!

Beads are up! Click on over to to see the latest! The top set in this photo is a new design that takes forever to make… but I love it so much I went ahead and made a few. Hopefully you guys like it too!

Okay… yes, my youngest gave me this hint to get on with dinner… I am happy to see that even though she is thinking of eating pizza, she is decked out in her stylish beads! Good job! Off to cook… I mean order dinner. 😀

The good stuff.

Remember the wetlands field trip? I was pretty happy when I saw this drawing come home from school. Pretty cute! I don’t remember the heavy blue eye-shadow but she swears I had it on… 🙂

‘Tis the season…

Yes… my youngest knows how to work it, but really who doesn’t want a Santa sorry this time of year?! It will carry my through any future grinchyness that might arise in our household. I love that she puts everything in writing, it makes it so easy to save and share.

Hmmm… I need to get some of my older daughters drawings up here. (Not apology drawings mind you, lets keep those at a minimum!) Maybe over winter break she can whip some up for me, she is so busy with middle school that she doesn’t have time to draw like she used to… sigh…

Back in the swing of things again.

This week we got everyone back into the routine of things… more or less. However, I feel like I’m still recovering from summer, or maybe I should say the demands of summer. 🙂

So we went to the doctor…

So my youngest has a stye. We thought it was a stye and apparently we should have looked it up on the web before we went to the doctor because after waiting for almost an hour the treatment is… hot compresses. Hmmm… probably shoulda just known that but DH was like take her in, get it looked at, so I did. Anyway, I fell asleep in the waiting room while sitting up in an uncomfortable chair. That can’t be good. I did get this awesome drawing from my daughter. She actually waited very nicely, but everyone has their limits. Luckily there were no pitchforks nearby… or as she called it… a trident. We just saw The Lightning Thief of course. Anyway, we are hot compressing away and hopefully her eye will be on the mend soon! I’ll be back tomorrow with new beads so check back!

Valentine’s Day

What really matters on Valentine’s Day are the cards from my family of course! 😀 Dude did a good job and got me a very nice necklace… okay, I got myself a nice necklace and put his name on it. 😉 Whatever right?! Happily I don’t need him to prove anything and it is a good excuse to justify a new $15 purchase. Gotta love those Hallmark holidays!

Beads in the Mart!

I can’t believe a week has gone by and I didn’t update once! I tell ya’, school is almost out, I’m obsessed with shopping carts and there are just not enough hours in the day. And now a new season of Top Chef has to be squeezed in… sheesh… 😀 I’m sure somehow I’ll manage. Take a peek at the latest if you have a minute. Happy Tuesday, oops! I mean Wednesday! Wow, I AM late!!
