Random Errands and Extra Links

Still recovering from the convention weekend, but I was able to get out to do a bunch of errands today.  I did some important stuff to get ready for the wedding at the end of the month.  I finally found a strapless bra and dropped the dress off at the seamstress for alterations.  I was very happy with that and was contemplating the next thing: shoes.  My mom mentioned she had a pair just like the ones I wanted, so I tried them on and they fit!  So yay, no shoe shopping for me!  I am not a very girly girl, as I actually hate things like shopping for underwear and shoes. I am very glad to get those things done, so we can plan more fun wedding stuff for Skennedy and Lucy.
Work-wise, I got a chance to squish clay today!  I made the rest of the orders I had to do and made a little extra.  This month, I really need to step up the clay work and get stock made for the Bead & Button Show.  It will be here before I know it, eep!  I listed a couple of items, like the set above, on Etsy and will try to do some more everyday, as they are piling up.  Oh, and here are last week's Extra links that I didn't get to post on Sunday:
