In my last post, I mentioned spending all day at Ornamentea...
Here's what I came out with: Granted, I didn't finish everything in class and had to go to town yesterday with my files and emory cloth, but I like the results.
I can't wait until I buy all the supplies and can do some more at home!

Bead Shopping

It's been awhile since I've browsed a bead store. I've been on a bead shopping hiatus - trying to actually use up something before I go buy more plan.
This week, I've managed to get into two of my favorites again.3 strands of opalite beads This afternoon, I was in the Twisted Jeweler in Fayetteville and snagged some opalite. I figured what the heck - I've never bought opalite and it was a steal -buy 1 strand - get 2 free!

Bye Bye Stove!

On the bright side, this week, I no longer have to cook dinner... but that is because my stove has decided to kick the bucket. It definitely could be worse - I'm the last one on my street to lose my stove (We all moved in at about the same time to our little cookie cutter domiciles and all have the same stoves. All of which have died in the last 18 months).Vicky' dead stove.The best thing of this whole ordeal - I can now pick out whatever stove I want with whatever nifty gaget I think I can't live without!

Now only to convince my husband that this entire process will take a month to "research" so I can't do any cooking ;)
