I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!  It seems like the past week and a half for me have gone by so quickly.  Our refrigerator started to act up the Monday before Thanksgiving.  It isn't quite fixed yet but the part should be in soon and the repairman at least got it working again temporarily!  Hopefully the part will be in soon and we can put this behind!  Lucky for me we had planned to go to my parents for Thanksgiving so the fridge wasn't full!  We had such a nice time with all my siblings and their families.  It is not often that our schedules all work out that we can be home at the same time.  I really treasure those times!

I have a bunch of things that I will be sharing with you this week.  I am so excited about this set!  This is going to be my "holiday" set this year (well my fancy set, I also have a more whimsical one to show as well later this week).  I made a second set of the Shaitana series jewelry.  We have a December wedding to go to and I wanted something fancy to wear to it.  The pictures do not do justice to how lovely and sparkly these are.  I love the gold pearls and the Golden shadow crystals that just make these glow!!  You can find the whole Shaitana series here.  The earrings, which are my favorite of the group by just a smidgen (you can find just the earrings pattern here), work up very quickly and are so very versatile.  I think that I have at least 4 pair of them in different colors.

Be sure to check back this week as I have some other projects to share.  The Maggie and Me color challenge reveal is on Thursday and Marcie has a list of links on her blog to check out as the day goes by.

What have you been up to?  Have you been busy making any gifts for Christmas this year?  I would love to see and hear what you have been up to.

Bead Happy!  ~Nancy
