Birthday Month

Well, the day has come and gone. I ended up spending my birthday exactly how I wanted to. I have the best husband in the world when it comes to gift giving. I got just what I wanted for gifts, then we went to the beach for a few hours, then he and I went out for a quiet dinner together. It was lovely.
Now I have to plan my kids birthdays, since they are both this week as well. We just refer to February as the 'Birthday Month'.
However, I did do some work in the last week. Dawn- beads in various red-toned glass with some violet and amethyst thrown in for contrast. They are on eBay right now. These beads didn't photograph very well (sure, blame it on the beads!) but I like them very much in person. They are very earthy and organic.

and Bunny Hop. These beads are part of my Painted Lady series. I just love the fun, lively glass colors in this small set. The beads themselves are a bit smaller than I usually make the Ladies, because I have had a few requests for smaller ones. I thought I'd give it a try. They will be listed on eBay in a couple of days.
~*Bunny Hop*~
I have some additional beads and a couple of small jewelry pieces to share, but I'll do that later. Have a great day!

Hey Laurie, the little ladies are totally awesome!!! Their colors are perfect. I am predicting a fabulously fantastic & creative summer for you. Is your hand completely healed? Your "lizard birdhouse" made me laugh. I used to live in Naples, FL and those little critters used to terrify me!! They used to be able to hold me hostage in my home or in the car while they sun bathed on our sidewalk. Your ghost beads look like they could almost glow in the dark. They really are beautiful. Thanks for sharing them with us. Take care, Lynette from Michigan

Thanks, Lynette! I know what you mean about the 'porch gators'. My kids catch them and keep them as pets. My nephew used to do the same thing when he was little and now he's a herpetologist and the Assistant Curator of the St. Augustine Aligator Farm - so I guess they have their purpose!
