It's Wednesday, and June is almost gone. Astonishing how fast the time rushes by. May the rest of your week be blessed and joyfully start the new month.

Playing with the mother-of-pearl hearts given to me by Diane Cook~~fun times. :-) This pendant is old, but I wanted to add a new heart dangle that I created using the heart bead, a teensy piece of brass that I pierced and stamped, wrapped with steel wire and attached with silk embroidery ribbon. I'm in LOVE!
Fun day of puttering at home, doing laundry and going to dinner with my DH and one of our girls and her boyfriend. They drove here from Sacramento...an hour and a half! And we went to Nantucket Restaurant in Crockett, CA. Scallops and shrimp~~~yum!
Hope your weekend is full of moments that recharge your soul~
Bless you all!

My high school friend LeeAnn asked for a special bracelet. She's dealing with health issues, and thought an encouraging bracelet would be just the ticket. It took me a few months to fit in the time to create it. You know how that goes~~spouse,work, church, family, other obligations. LeeAnn waited patiently. And waited. And FINALLY she received it last week. She's happy. I'm happy. A perfect ending!
May your week be full of happy times. And may all of the challenges be surmountable! Bless you all.

Last Thursday I dragged home from work. Shooting x-rays makes me run back and forth, adjusting patients and running back to operate the machine. I didn't know that when I drove home I'd find a surprise waiting. Diane Cook had sent me a package of fun! See the brass chain, luscious buds and brass filligree above? And that was just the start of the fun.
Mother-of-Pearl hearts!!! Love 'em! A whole fun strand of them to add to my creations. Oh yeah!
Smokey Quartz. Doesn't it look like jelly beans? Yummo!
Now this is SERIOUSLY cool----synthetic steel wool and sanding rectangles! Diane had told me about synthetic steel wool while we were chatting about jewelry techniques. I was intrigued...a steel wool that didn't make an enormous mess every time you used it? Yahoo! Well, I hadn't had a chance to hunt for it at Ace Hardware. Diane thoughtfully sent these!
Diane's hubby sent my hubby a book that he's just started and really enjoying. What a lovely classy couple. We were blessed to have them visit. Maybe someday we will be able to travel to Texas. If all Texans are so nice, it'll be the best visit!
