And If You Turn Them Upside Down, They Look Like Fireworks!

Happy New Year to each of you!  While 2012 brought some truly fabulous experiences and opportunities, it also seriously kicked my butt more than a couple of times.  So I look forward to 2013 with great anticipation, hopefully wiser from what the last year has allowed me to learn.

Today seemed like a perfectly lazy day, but considering I got all the Christmas decorations down and (mostly) packed away, got to the bottom of the mountain of laundry, and got some time in the bead room, it was actually pretty productive.


Here's a little something that's come off the worktable over the past few days -- an experiment that turned out almost exactly like I'd envisioned it.  Color me surprised!



Look at them upside down, and they look a little like fireworks.
See?  I created a New Year's celebration tie-in!
Okay, it's a stretch, but indulge me...

Back to work tomorrow.  I'll bet I won't be the only one having a hard time getting back into the routine...

Bobbie, those earrings are darling. And they're in my favorite colors too!

Today was both productive, and a bit of laziness. I photographed 18pairs of earrings, finished some laundry and updated my website, watched TV, did a few sudoku puzzles and surfed the web. Now I just need to figure out supper. Gee I do hope the grocery store is still open......

Wishing you all the best in 2013!

Very cool earrings - I can seriously see the fireworks! All our company is gone, and today was spent getting the house back to normal. I have not made it upstairs to my beadroom in weeks...so looking forward to spending some happy hours planning new projects for a new year... tomorrow.

Those earrings are amazing! You must be so proud of first of envisioning something so awesome and then executing it so well. All the best to you for the coming year!!

Cute idea - daggers are a shape I tend to avoid! Although I do want to try kumihimo with daggers someday....

The colors and textures in these are fantastic!
Happy New Year, Bobbie!
Hope the routine didn't hurt too much today! Everyone here did surprisingly ok this morning, so I know tomorrow will be a disaster.
