It never ceases to amaze me how life can just take control and leave me running to catch up with it. Sometimes I think that I have overcome the hill only to find that it was just a foothill to the next. Almost two weeks ago now we discovered that one of the boys had head lice. I have never had to deal with this situation before and there was a big learning curve for my husband and I. Everytime we thought we had him clear, a day or two later we would discover more. I felt so bad for him. He loves school and had to be out about 4 days. We were fortunate in that it stayed contained to him but it was a very long week until we finally said enough is enough and buzzcut his hair very close to the scalp. He had a hair cut right away to about a 3/4" length. The second haircut was the one though that did the trick. Can I just say that I am tired of cleaning and deep cleaning and LAUNDRY!! I know that this is very minor compared to what a lot of people face but it was definately a stressful period for us.
We were able to get away for the weekend and spent a lovely time with my family in and around Pittsburgh. It was a really good thing for us and helped us start to feel back to normal. I did some beading for a new project on the way out and back that I hope to show you soon but in the meantime....
I want to share some more beaded rings with you. These are another group of three rings I designed. My favorite is the Simplicity ring. The picture doesn't do it justice as to how cute this ring is. I am going to make one for my sister who has 6 children. In place of the vintage rose bicones, I am going to use the birthstone colors of her children and make her a mother's ring. Eventually I want to make one for myself as well. The Cherie ring is named for my dear friend Cherie who owns the Garden of Beadin' in Bartonsville PA where I teach each month. She often will challenge me to use a new beading or finding that she got for the store. I also made a pair of earrings using that finding that I will be showing you soon as well.
I hope that life will settle into a routine again soon and I can get back to regular blogging. Feel free to leave me a comment. I love to hear what you have to share. Have a great week.
