Lately, my dream is to sell our house and get moved. My husband has already started working at his new job, so for now, we are separated...and both of us HATE it. I do have faith, though, that all things happen for a reason. So, for now, I try to be patient.
We haven't been in this house long, (since July 2012), but we have done a few updates (not much). We updated the light in our entry.
And added much needed lighting in our kitchen.
We've fixed up some of our storage areas;
It was pretty pathetic before don't you think...lol
We've painted, done quite a bit of repair to old things that needed updating that is really not noticeable (roof, etc), and we've added additional parking in the driveway.
We have also enjoyed our beautiful back yard. All in all, Kentucky has been a nice place during our short time here...lots of nice people and beautiful scenery, but alas, it is time to move on...again...
Ok, so that's my dream for now, and here is my piece...First I'd like to thank Rita of Jewel School Friends for sharing this wonderful bead created by Patricia Handschuh of The Color of Dreams Boutique. Isn't it one of the most gorgeous things you seen? I LOVE it and was very excited about getting it. I don't work with a lot of the brown turquoise combo, so this was a great thing for me; I could work outside my comfort zone a little.
I've been working on new thing for me...paper beads...and wanted to try to incorporate them into the piece. I thought off white freshwater pearls would go nicely too. Then, as I dug around, I found some turquoise chips and beads, and some brown Jasper. I also had to add a fun glass flower bead and lace.I really like the way this necklace turned out. I made it so all I have to do is slip it over my head, no clasp to mess with.
I can't wait to go visit the rest of the group to see what they did with their bead. Each bead is different, so I can't wait to see the different beads too. There are about 50 participants, here is the list. Hope you enjoy!
