Bead & Jewelry Linky Love

Here's the SO's "March comes in like a lion" artwork from cooking class (we do art projects as well as cook in that class, yay). Cute, eh? He loves making a mess with craft glue (and then complaining, in some surprise, that his hands are all sticky - one of these days I hope he'll make the connection between the two).

I've been busy finishing up my taxes - not much else going on here right now, although I'm itching to do a little beading. Maybe a quick project tonight... Hope all is well with you.
