I am as guilty as you when it comes to hoarding my favorite beads. See that focal? The flower, etched leaf, and vintage button have been in my stash for quite some time. It was hard to pull them out and use them, but I'm glad I did. I like how this piece turned out. It has a very tranquil and calm way about it.
Today I am feeling more calm. The cat seems to be leveled off, is eating well, taking her meds with no issues. This makes me happy. Working hasn't been bad, knowing what is to coming in only 7 short days. I'm sure next week I'll be totally freaking out about leaving the museum. But until then, I'm going to try to relish and keep this calmness.
