I did lots of yardwork this weekend. Nothing fun like planting flowers like these pretty flower beads from Art Beads. Weeds and dirt and mulch and stuff. Yuck! Hard work! I'm tired now, but I wanted to do a quick blog post.
I also spent some time beading over the last two days. I made at least five pieces! I made three pieces using the charms and summery beads shown in today's blog post, all from Art Beads! I'll be showing those off over the next three days, so come back to see my summer inspired designs!
