Check out this neat picture! I was heading to take a shower and this reflection was on the wall outside of the bathroom. It was only for a moment, long enough for me to grab the camera. It is a reflection of the sun through the kitchen window, bouncing off of light from a car in the street. I was only able to take a single picture, and it was gone. Awesome!

I have been doing some reflecting myself lately (nice segue, huh?). I am about to embark on an exciting new blog project that I am excited about. It is top secret still, but it will be all about writing and designing jewelry and making beads...all of which are really important in my life right now. Bead making has been very important to me for many years, but the writing and designing are somewhat new, and I am spending a lot of time thinking about the importance of these things in my current process.

So one of the things I am doing for this new project is trying to write in my blog daily, and reading other blogs about beads too. So if you have a blog about beads, please leave me a comment! I will add you to my blogroll.
