0 Tantalizing Tuesday 12/17/13 (Aye's Birthday, A Gift and a New Project)


Yesterday I was in a EPIC battle with my computer again!!  I have to tell you that I really think that even if I get it working - the computer still wins!!  I spend so much time 'fighting' with it that somehow I just feel like a winner when it will finally work again! 

I had a wonderful weekend though!!  I was able to spend so much time with my family and finish my Christmas shopping...not really bead, but the other was fun too!!  :) 

There are so many things to show off today, so I had better get to it!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Today's new listing is actually from the Prima Blog Team New Years beads I received!!

  Here is what I started with.....

 I thought I would do a little different than the traditional Black and Silver and really make a bold statement with Black and HOT PINK!!  This would make a wonderful statement for that New Years party - don't you think??  This is the first of several from this set of beads....

I get to start something new today - WHOOO HOOOO!!  I have been looking at this stone for some time, and here are the colors I came up with!!  Come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day to watch it grow !!

Through on of my Beading Face Book Groups I participated in a HOLIDAY GIFT SWAP.  I was very lucky to get a wonderful lady named Sam Waghorn.  She is a very talented lady and after a couple of quick emails we discovered that we have a LOT in common!!  We are the same age, our backgrounds are similar and through this we quickly became friends.  Yesterday when I received her package from the UK I was 'doubley' lucky.  Not only did she send me this amazing necklace with a handmade glass center piece, but she also send me an amazing 'face' from BlueberriBeads.  The note wished me a Merry Christmas and that she saw this 'face' and thought I would be able to create something with it!  So, not only did I get an amazing necklace creation, but a bead to create something with!!!!  WHOOO HOOO!!

And, if that isn't enough, today is my daughters 14th Birthday!! My children are the light of my life, but my daughter and I share a very special connection.  She and I are so much alike it is scary!  So, to her, I say - 

Happy Birthday my darling girl!

Today I would like to leave you with this thought;

Celebrate everyday.  Find something to be happy about and enjoy it! ~KM
