I had the idea that maybe my hands wouldn't hurt so much if I tried something different with beads. My thoughts were wire work. I went out and bought a set of tools, a crimper tool and I went back and also bought chain nose pliers. I got those because I was watching some YouTube videos and they kept using those, so I thought I needed them. Turns out I do! They're perfect for what I'm doing.

I am diligently working on my Artbeads.com Blogging Partners project. I'm hoping to have it done within a couple days. But I tell you what...I can wait to get my own computer back! Trying to size and crop photos in Paint in the Accessories folder is for the birds. I need my Photoshop back!!! But my computer had heart failure on Wednesday night and since then I have been borrowing my husband's computer. This sucks! lol Funny the things we come to rely on. I couldn't adjust the colors or anything. It was terrible. Oh well. I'm hoping to have mine back sometime in the middle of this week....hoping! Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Is everyone having a nice Fall so far? Enjoying the weather? We're finally down to the 90's, so we're on the right track. This week if Fall Break for the kids, and my house will be full round the clock. Good side...I don't have to get up, make lunches and play taxi driver. Bad news...my house will be full round the clock. I can't complain. I have awesome kids. Except when they're fighting. And they say, "I'm hungry" every ten minutes.
Have a good week!
