Bead & Jewelry Linky Love
Here's the Short One's latest masterpiece. (The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of his favorite books.) The SO's grandparents (my in-laws) were visiting last week, so it was a whirlwind of activity here - park, zoo, park, children's museum, park, children's play cafe, park. Well, you get the picture - we are definitely enjoying the warmer weather here nowadays.
I have a new necklace to show off, probably tomorrow, with one of the most gorgeous beads I've ever seen, from Artbeads.com. In the meantime, here are your intriguing bead and jewelry links:
