Bead and Jewelry Link Love
Here's a little abstract art from the Short One. Not bad, eh? Markers are still a special privilege in our house (and to be honest, it bothers the SO that the ink stains on his hands don't wash off immediately), so he takes advantage of the opportunity to create art with them whenever it's presented. This was the result of a creative session at the local children's museum a few days ago.
Here's some bead and jewelry link love to help you get through your weekend:
