It has been way too long since my last post. I'll blame it all on work. I'm lucky that I have a good job, but we are working way too much overtime for me to enjoy the fun stuff I like to do. I did squeeze in some time to make paper beads--LOTS-- of paper beads! They are very addictive. I cut up several, brightly colored, magazine pages. Now that I have a shopping bag full, I just sit in front of TV and twirl away. After I get a large amount done, I've been stringing them onto a length of twine. I then plan to take them to work where we have a nice ventilated area (that we use for spray glue) and I'll spray them with gloss varnish. After all of that I hope to whip up some simple bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. I'll be back soon to let you know how they turn out.
