Joe and I celebrated Christmas with my family this past weekend. It was great to see each of my parents and spend some quality time with each of them. We came home feeling humble and happy!
For Christmas we'll travel to Connecticut to celebrate with my husband's family. Hoping the weather stays mild like it has been. After getting home last night, I was itching to get into the studio and will have 5 newbies showing up in one of my shops sometime today. In the meantime, click around and enjoy this past week's Bead Blogger links!
