Enjoying the summer.

For those of you who don’t know, my “craft room” is an ongoing struggle.  I put the quotes around craft room because right now it’s a sea of disorganized boxes.  Today I managed to do a bit of sorting and sweep the floors.  It had quite the collection of dead bugs.  EW!  I’m hoping to spend the next week, a few hours a day, working on the room and I do feel determined to get it to a usable state before school starts.

We’ll go to Myrtle Beach in a few weeks and I’ll get some beach combing in.  I wish I could find more sea glass or beach pebbles there.  I do find a lot of worn down shells which I think would make great jewelry if I actually sat down and did it.  Here is one of the necklaces I have made this summer. It is made on antiqued copper chain with stone beads.  Approximately 17” long.
