I'm all alone this weekend. J is out of town painting at a lake house. Poor J! Must be so tough for him! =)

Here's what I did, in list form:

1. Got up @ 7:45, drank coffee, and surfed the net
2. Ate some strawberry pop-tarts, got dressed.
3. Went to Bead shop, bought these lime green beauties, and some seed beads, some copper bead caps, and some cool Czech glass that was 20% off.
went to George's landscaping and bought impatiens, coleus, some wacky purple leafy thing, and some lime green wacky green plant, potting soil, 3 plastic pots.

4. Came home, planted said flowers into said pots.
5. Weeded a flower bed.
6. Went to the grocery store, and bought stuff for lunch and stuff for dinner.

7. Came home, made lunch. Ate on the front porch. (See pics below of planted flowers).

8.Went to the studio. Built this custom necklace for Stefanie M. using seed beads and ceramic beads that she made and sent me.

Made earrings (2 pair) one using copper bead caps.
Made bracelet using lime beads. (*i have a feeling
no one will like this color but I'm going to list them anyway)

9. Took photographs, edited photographs, and am now blogging.

Coming up:
10. Dinner: chicken sausage, couscous, tomato and cucumber salad
11. Strawberry shortcake

12. a movie- probably something really girly and sappy that J would hate. =)
13. ahhh, bed.

    girl, you are sooooo productive!
    I played with my son and neices all day at my brothers pool.
    lazy summer saturday...pure fun =)

    your porch is divine...I love it so very much..can I come over for dinner and share a bottle of vino and talk about what a putz tyler is?

  2. yes you can! Anytime!!
    Wish you could be here tonight!! :)

  3. Lime green?!?!? I think I might love it! I melted at the P.O today. It was 106! I like your schedule better! It involved making pretty things and potting pretty things!

  4. Must have been a shopping day - I also went in search of beads. Love your pics, you are good with color and I think the lime green is divine. Like key lime pie, cool just looking at it.

  5. Hi Gaea!
    106! OhMyLanta! You wouldn't catch me outside at that temp. It was a pleasant 80-85 here today. Perfect!

    Hi Lynn!
    I liked the lime too...these beads shouted my name when I saw them in the shop. I'll have to get some more before the sale is over. This bracelet sold already, didn't even list it! :) (Thanks Beth)

  6. Hi Lorelei,
    My name's Lisa and I live in Derbyshire UK. I've been on your blog site every day for the past couple of weeks as I'm recovering from food poisoning (Ikea salmon!)and haven't known what to do with myself. First saw your stuff on Etsy and found your blog site. I also make jewellery and I absolutely love your designs. Can't get much in supplies over here except on Ebay and they're all very samey. Just brought some books on how to use polymer clay so will start making when I'm better and hopefull open an Etsy shop. I love your porch by the way and wish it was as hot over here. Just rain and wind at the moment and expensive petrol! Many thanks for keeping me sane. You may have already received this message as I had to open a google account and the type disappeared!
    Lisa H

  7. Hi Lisa!
    Thank you so much for your kind words! And thank you for being a loyal blog reader!I hope you recover for this bout of food poisoning! yikes! Probably causing you to surf the net a lot I imagine! Nothing wrong with that!
    You should try buying some supplies on Etsy. It's where I buy the majority of my beads and wire! Some of the best prices around, and you couldn't ask for better customer service online! Please feel free to keep in touch with via email. ljeurto[at]gmail[dot]com

    Wow! You were very productive this weekend!!

    I *love* your porch. What a beautiful spot to have a nice summer lunch!


  9. My goodness, all that before lunch. I have to go take a nap!I've been looking at various jewelry blogs lately and found yours via ABS. I'm adding you to my reader.
    I agree your porch is great. Reminds me of a relative's porch I used to visit a long time ago. (Nice jewelry too)

  10. Hi Bev!
    Thanks for stopping in!! I hope you continue to check in once in a while. I'm gearing up for a sale in the shop, and am probably due for another jewelry giveaway!
    :) You can't miss that!!
