Well, the summer season is off to a bang and I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day. My family remembered and celebrated the life of my cousin Charles who gave his life in the Korean War.
The school year is just about over and we are setting our sights on summertime activities and vacations. During my upcoming vacation I plan to take a day and do some much needed organizing. I have commandeered my dining room and my family have been really good sports about the mess. But all of that is about to change with the purchase of a small cabinet that will house all the clutter. This new cabinet will house my shipping supplies, pliers and other special tools I use to create my handmade jewelry and accessories.
I also plan to do some gardening. I love to fill my many planters and the flower beds around my home with loads of colorful annuals. I love to work with orange and yellow marigolds, vincas, begonias, salvia - red and purple, black-eyed Susans, coleus, zennias, geraniums, gerbera daisies, and corn flowers to name a few.
The rest of the time I plan to spend at the pool, entertaining and visiting with family and friends and, of course, feeding my need to bead!
Here is a sampling of the new items I created this week:
