Extra Extra! Laughs and Links

Happy Sunday, all! I am starting a new Sunday blog thing today, you will see below. But first...This Just In: two Idiots have launched a new video showing you how to solve a Rubik's cube. HAHAHA! Actually, one of the "idiots" is our dear friend Michael Naughton. You may remember these funny guys from their David Blane videos. This is really funny, although it does contain some coarse language and drunken foolishness, so you have been warned:

Ok, and now onto the new thing. I have joined a great group of artist people, who are mostly very talented bead and jewelry related crafty types, and we are swapping links every week. I hope this will spread around a little extra bloggy love to each of us, and I am proud to be a part of this team. Enjoy these links in a new feature I am calling Extra! Extra! Jewelry Making Learn to "make it yours" from this latest issue of Make It Mine magazine. You'll find lots of crafty goodness including some fun jewelry articles, one even from our very own bead buddy, Candie Cooper!
