Bead & Jewelry Linky Love
Despite the 3-4 inches of snow we received hereabouts yesterday, our thoughts are fixed firmly on spring. Here's the Short One's latest masterpiece, made during his Mom's Morning Away class. Evidently, the children learned that George was a naughty boy for handling that dangerous axe and was sent to his bedroom for a time out. Naughty or not, it's a cute tree, right?
I've actually had a somewhat productive weekend - I wrote up a project proposal (I'm determined not to miss yet another deadline), photographed several pieces for the Etsy store, made and fired a kiln-load of silver and now I'm actually posting the week's bead & jewelry links before 10pm. Yay - small (teenie) achievements add up! I hope you had a great weekend, too. Anyway, without further ado, here are your intriguing links for the week:
