Reasons to celebrate

Happy Pi Day! I know you know it's Pi Day today, right? Go on, admit it - it's your favorite holiday - you can't hide it from me. March 14, which here in the US is noted 3/14 or 3.14 - or pi taken out to 2 decimal places (which always makes me wonder - is Pi Day celebrated in countries where March 14th is annotated as 14.3? Just curious).

March 14th is also White Day in places such as Japan, South Korea and I believe one or two other countries. It's one month after Valentine's Day - the day when the boys respond to the girls (traditionally, only girls give out chocolate on Valentine's Day where White Day is also celebrated). So Happy White Day to you, too.

Thanks for all of the kind comments and interesting entries for the Short One's Superhero Giveaway. For those of you who inquired, any superhero is fine! (I love Underdog, myself.)

Without further ado, here are your bead & jewelry links for the week:
