Sweetness in the mailbox.

Monte and I have enjoyed joining his sister’s family zoom sessions.  Her adult kids and young grandkids live in 3 different cities.  They all join.  We join when we can.  It’s special.

Last week my great-niece, Adelle, showed everyone one her latest project, making bracelets out of colorful rubber bands.  We all asked for one of our own, and little Adelle delivered!  They arrived in the mail today.  I picked Seahawks colors, and I absolutely love it!

Thank You Adelle!

Walnut beads.
Walnut beads.

For a week or two near the end of every year the shop outback becomes Santa’s Workshop.  This year, Santa gave me some beautiful, hand-cut wooden beads for stringing, made out of walnut.

Today, the first day of 2013, I pulled out my box of beading supplies and tools and set out to make something with the walnut pieces.  I ended up stringing together a bracelet.   I like how it turned out.

Thanks Santa!
