Thank you so much for still stopping by to visit my blog.  This has been a very busy year for me and it seems like I haven't been able to find time to write very often.  My kids are out of school for the summer, which means that our crazy convoluted schedule has begun.  I am hoping that I will be able to bead on a more regular basis.  I have some new designs that are being worked up into patterns and once the rain stops, I hope to be able to take some pictures to share with you.  Back toward the end of May, I took some pictures of the Mountain Laurel that blooms in our yard. (Click on the photo for a better view.)  I don't think that I ever took the time to really look at them up close.  They go through such interesting phases as they bloom.  Someday I would like to explore some of the shapes in beading.  I think it will be a fun challenge.  I also included a photo of one of our peonies.  We finally were able to actually enjoy them this year.  In the past few years, they would bloom and it would rain.  They were destroyed in the rain.  This year we had several days to enjoy them.  They are such a lovely flower. I am hoping to be able to photo some jewelry this week and be able to share.  Keep your fingers crossed, every time I think that I will be able to get to it life gets in my way!! LOL.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you are having a wonderful day!
