Busy Beading not Blogging

Yes, yes, it's been entirely too long since I last posted to my brand new blogspot. And don't think I haven't guiltily told myself, "you know, you need to post." However...I have been busy beading as you'll notice from the succession of posts and images to follow.

As I type we're experiencing the extraordinarily rare phenomena of california rain. Yep, it's finally raining, and believe me, it's making up for it's absence. A deluge. I had to use my children's balance beam to forge a makeshift stepping stone path to get from my garage to the house. But being the prepared beader that I am, had already removed several boxes of shiny things from the garage to my house so I can work, without getting drenched, as inspiration strikes! Let the beading begin.
