Resolutions are also daunting for me, I often break them or never even get them started. This year my resolution is to blog more. I've been reading Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach and and going to try posting something daily with the quote of the day from the book. I'll still be posting new beads, jewelry and goings on about my exciting life!

My husband and I have never EVER been on a real vacation together. No honeymoon, no vacation ever, nadda.
Can you tell it annoys me? Well, we are going to MEXICO! We are going to Tulum just outside of Cancun, I cannot wait. Beaches, snorkeling, relaxing! Sigh ........ life is good!

I've been exploring the goddess shape in a more free form manner than I've done in the past. I am not much of a "flowy" person, so working with shapes less regimented has really opened my creative juices up a bit.
I love encasing, I HAVE to encase at least 1/2 the beads I make at any sitting. I love the way the clear magnifies the base and gives it such amazing depth. So for some of these free form shapes I wanted to play with encasing then, stretching the shapes. I think I've got something good going!

I am very excited I sold this piece out of the Small Treasures show at Coast Collective gallery! I think it's the first piece of jewelry to sell out of a gallery show there. I believe it was the people at Royal Bay bakery who bought it, they have the BEST baking there! They are right at the top of the lagoon when you head to the gallery. Stop in for a snack on your way to Coast Collective!

I am pretty thrilled with the colors in the plunged dots on this bead! I am a bit of a purple nut so I am always thrilled when I get nice purples. The dots are Psyche from Double Helix I am a big fan of their silvered glass! Their clear is very nice too, melts really fast, no scum and no bubbles.
The weather is changing to cold and clear, we had what felt like weeks of solid rain. I haven't seen our ditches that full in a long time. Snow is in the forecast for tonight but only a small amount. I'd love to see a nice big dump of it like we had last year!
