I have to go buy some clasps for them also. But it is getting hot here (low 100's) during the day, and the A/C in my car has been broken for quite some time. So I don't drive during the day unless it's absolutely mandatory. Then by the time evening rolls around, the sun has gone down and it's cooled down a bit, all I want to do is stay home. I'm going to a Craft Night at a friend's house tomorrow evening, and I'm hoping to have at least one of these necklaces done in time to show.
In between beading on my projects and stuff around the house, I have been busy playing with Studio J and making more scrapbook pages. I've done quite a few, but I'm going to post just a couple for you to see a glimpse into my world. The first page was 4th of July when we lived in Plattsmouth, Nebraska in 2006. It was a tiny little town taken out of the pages of the books of days gone by, and they had a tremendous fireworks display down by the river. Matthew was so scared of the fireworks. But did you know that zombies love fireworks? It's true. They are attracted to the big booms. And Matthew loves zombies. So he played he was a zombie during some of the show to get through it all. lol. The pic of him with his head dropped while standing up is his zombie impersonation. The first pic of Jeff and Sara is one of my all time favorites. You can click for a larger view.
The 2nd one is of Sara. We had a beauty day and I put a little bit of makeup on her, then she modeled and posed for the camera. What a doll! This was also in 2006. The thing about this page is that Sara basically made the whole thing herself. I uploaded the photos and did the clicking, but she made all the decisions on the paper, layout, embellishments, etc. Didn't she do a great job?
