Time for the Holidays

Well, Thanksgiving has just passed and now it is time to gear up for the Christmas Holidays. So much emphysis is placed on what presents to buy and how much to decorate the home. and playing Christmas music two months in advance that all the joy is going out of the holiday.
I think that I will spend more time working on my jewelery and trying to get things accomplished around the house. I have a small tree this year and really don't feel much like getting the house decorated up. I don't know if this is a sign that I am getting older, or just feeling a bit overwhelmed with all that seems it must be done by a certain time.
Oh for the olden days when everything seemed so simple.
I did get two necklaces done yesterday, and got more beads in order so that I can work on more different ideas for the jewelery. I have some fun things to do. but have been so busy that even the fun things have taken a back seat.
I have a few homework projects to work on and want to work on some of the silver jewelery before Christmas. I have several pieces of amythest that I need to set as well as some crystals. I also have a wonderful piece of ammolyte that I want to make a necklace for. so I need to get busy.
Lets hope that the weekend will allow me to get some of these done.

Kits and more Kits

Well, I have had a busy few weeks. Worked alot of overtime and then took some classes from Jill Wiseman. We had such a wonderful time. I was able to get some good ideas from Jill about doing my own kits and how to design kits. Now I can not wait to design and work up some kits that I have had in my mind for a while. Also just got together with some of the beading ladies and just worked on some stuff that I had just hanging around. So quite a few good weeks. Now I have to push to get some things done for the WWBS Christmas party. I need a great design for a christmas egg for the party for a gift exchange. Has to be beaded. so off to do some research on what I can get done quickley.
Hope to do some silver work here in the near future also. Got too many things just hanging out that need to be finished. Not enough time in the day to get everything done.
We just added a new addition to the family. her name is Lexie and she is no bigger than a minute. She is a miniture maltese and she is adorable.She will be my new shadow for a long time.
Well, back to working on a double Ogalala necklace done with purple pearls and crystals as accents. Hope to have it done today.
