School's Out!!!!

Wow, that was a whirlwind week. Man oh man oh man, am I beat.

The last week of school is always hectic and this time it was even worse because my daughter's moving on to Middle School now. Notice how I capitalized that, 'cuz it's THE most important thing in the world?

Anyway, there was just a lot going on and I felt like I was gone all day every day and never got a thing accomplished. My house is a wreck, my studio is a disaster, and I don't have anything cleaned to photo right now. Maybe later.

How about all of y'all? Is everyone on summer vacation now? Any big plans? Are you headed to the seaside? Grand Canyon? Or are you planning long days spent watching cartoons with the blinds pulled, eating cereal for lunch and never getting out of jammies?

We're planning some of those, for sure. But, we've got some stuff going on and some places to go and people to see, too. It's not all 'Ben 10' and Wii and Fruit Loops, I assure you.

I'll chat more about that later.

Anyway, I do have a gorgeous 'wave' set ending on eBay tonight. It's Aurae and it's really, really nice. The beads are pretty big, too, for olives. Check it:

Laurie, I found you blog through Patty's blog and her sharing the ITies That Bind raffle. First, I'm so sorry you lost your friend to Ovarian cancer. I just wanted to say that your beads I think by far are the most beautiful glass/lampwork beads I have ever seen....GORGEOUS!!

Happy Creating!

Thanks so much, Aileen!
I think it's a wonderful project. Such a worthy cause. I hope the goal is met. I haven't gotten my tickets yet, but I will!

So, how's summer vacation going? My kids thought I was a horrible mom last week because I declared a moratorium on going to visit friends and having friends visit-- just for that one week. We did fun stuff ourselves, like going to a local lake to play at the beach. We did not-so-fun-but-has-to-be-done stuff like cleaning and straightening the avalanche that was their room. AND we didn't have the sibling arguments about who got to spend more time with which friend, yada,yada,yada :) Today, we're back to the visiting, but at least we got a few things accomplished. Big deal for moi, since I tend to like jammies and cereal days more than I reasonably should :)

Hey, Ang, sounds just like our house! We were supposed to take the first week and clean rooms, house, garage, pool storage area, etc. to get ready for summer. But we had a little mix-up with the grandparents, so the kids are at their house this week instead of next.

I'm on my own. Woo Hoo!!!!
Kinda lonely, though.
