Welcome, Saturday!

Rustic Butterflies

I have never been so relieved to have the weekend. It was a long week. And stressful. But I finally got my Quarterly taxes done. I did them all by myself. I hope I did it right. I just went over the last quarterly paperwork that I have from when I had the tax guy do it last time.
This time I just couldn't see paying $65 to have him do it. It took me probably twice as long to add everything up and then figure out the complicated form. Why does it have to be so hard?
I don't get that. But anyway, I got it done and now it's behind me and I'm sure they'll let me know if I didn't do it right.
Next up on the agenda, finish the Christmas shopping. But I think that doing it this weekend is a mistake so I may wait and go late Monday night. Once that is done, I'll be ready to enjoy the holidays.
This necklace you see above was the first piece I have been able to sit down and create in like 2 weeks. I sat down and the flow came and all of a sudden I had this outcome. I love it when that happens and I truly missed being able to bead without any deadline, or agenda.
It's listed in my Etsy shop. It's really needing a good home. It's very wearable. And agreeable. It won't argue with you, and won't cause any marital problems. It's pretty good about doing chores, and keeping the peace. And it won't leave the seat up on the toilet. AND it's a very good cook. You can't go wrong really.

Thank you to all of the wonderful comments on the Pendant giveaway post. I will let you know what happens either way but we are still waiting to see what happens. I have a few more days before I'll know for sure. Somthing's gotta give. With all of these wishes, and hopes, and dreams, and prayers...something's gotta give.


  1. I'm glad you were able to create without a deadline - this necklace is great!

  2. That necklace is beautiful! I really hope I can learn how to make something half that nice sometime soon, lol.

  3. That sounds like a great necklace, but does it shovel snow? LOL

  4. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH Jewelry that doesn't fight back. How peaceful.
    "Creative work is play" as I always say.
    ...dream a little dream...God Bless Lorelei

  5. Gorgeous necklace!

    I have to pay an accountant -- I don't file quarterly but annually and my accountant does it along with the household and it's a huge undertaking. I hate numbers.

  6. The necklace is lovely. I just love it! It is exactly the kind of jewelry that I love.

    Here's hoping that "something gives" for you this holiday season.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
