Bead & Jewelry Linky Love
Here's the Short One's and my latest collaborative masterpiece, entitled "Train" (it looks like a train, right? Right?). The SO has been quite keen on drawing lately. In fact, I turned on the television one night and discovered that he had, in a fit of enthusiasm, covered the screen in a crayon masterpiece while I was cooking dinner. Fortunately, this is actually quite unusual, as his preferred medium is still paper. (While I would like to avoid stifling his creativity, we've still taken what some might call a conservatively dim view towards coloring the walls, etc.)
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Here are your intriguing bead and jewelry links for the week:
