4 Thoughtful Thursday 10/31/13 (Halloween and a Beadwoven Flask)


Can you believe that it is Halloween already?  You know what that means, right??  Next is Daylight savings, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and before we know it.... NEW YEARS - oh, I think I forgot Christmas - can we?  Sorry, this year, a lot like most years, I am not ready for ANYTHING! To me, this is really funny, I talk about what each day brings on my blog and I talk about the change of seasons and how life is moving along, but I just don't really think about it!  It is like those moments when you kids turn around and you realize that the last 5 years are gone!!  So, it is down to business, down to getting presents made,ordered and purchased.  It is down to getting into the spirit and decorating for fall/Thanksgiving.  It is time to start making menus and inviting family over.  Yes, it is time to live 'in the moment'!!

This is a photo that my mom sent me a week or so ago and I now that I am usually not one to put these types of photos out there it is just toooooo perfect!!  


Happy Halloween, but don't party toooo hard!! :)

I have been working on another flask on the side - yes, I bead a lot!! And here it is!  Remember, you can custom order one with just about anything on it that you would like!!  This one will (I am sure) be loved by whoever receives it.

For those of you that like to watch the 'making of' videos, here you go!!  I didn't show ANY of this one on my pages while I was working on it, so this might be fun to watch!!
