My folks and I rented a booth for a local holiday bazaar which will be on Nov 22. My mom has some crocheted blankets and potholders and my dad has already made some necklaces and earrings with larger beads. I started beading on Sunday - I made one necklace Sunday night and a bracelet with elastic thread last night. I've started work on another bracelet and will finish it tomorrow. I'm hoping to have about 10-12 beaded necklaces or bracelets for the bazaar. Once I have a collection, I'll post a couple of photos. I really just feel like beading. It's literally been years since I've taken the time - tried to a couple of times when Eddie was about 2, but he kept wanting to play with the string and/or the beads. Otherwise, it'd been before he was born.

It's fun - I find it relaxing, like coloring mandalas. We'll see if we actually make any money, but in the meantime, I'm enjoying play with all the beads and the colors!

That sounds like a fun project. Thank you for the birthday wishes. I am so glad to have gotten to know you through blogging and to have met you in person too!

Happy Birthday again, Carver!

It is fun to bead again ... it's been a long time and I'm enjoying it - will try to post the results sometime soon!

Is this the Christmas craft market running through the season? we'll be selling carbon fiber whistles and flutes there.

HI Mary,
Yes, there's a lot of different markets and craft fairs - we're just doing the one at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church next Saturday. It should be fun. Where are you selling the whistles and flutes?
