as the saying goes like a lamb out like a lion....April Fools day on us! As I sat outside enjoying a blissfully warm spring day listening to the birds chirping  I didn't believe the weather man but I should have.....woke up this morning to snow and a fair amount. Oh well we know spring is just around the corner....we hope! 

I am really hoping for this to clear by Saturday because my wonderful husband is taking me on a photographic adventure....we are just heading out no destination in mind. These are from my last adventure so I would really like a little less snow and maybe a lot more horses.

I have been in a bit of an artistic slump lately, not beading much, not drawing, not even knitting...what to do...I had ordered Kate McKinnon's book "Contemporary Geometric Beadwork" and thought I would give it a try. Love love love it, the possibilities are endless.The bracelets are 3D and can be reversed, so very cool and easier than one thinks. Here are my first two bracelets and there are more on the beading table.

Enjoy and Happy Easter!


  1. Oh, Debbie, the bracelets are GREAT! I have Kate's book, too, and have been wavering on giving it a shot. You've inspired me! I hope the weather warms up for you - both so you can have a wonderful photo adventure, and just because, geez, it's April, for crying out loud!

  2. The weather is crazy this season one day it is in the 80's here the next in the 40's I feel bad for those of you still getting snow. I hope that this weekend is a good one for you. Your bracelets are beautiful. I have that book, but I have not tried anything in it yet.

  3. I love these bracelets, and I've had my eye on that book!! Glad to hear it is inspiring. Wishing you beautiful weather today for your photo journey!!
