Long time gone

My goodness--where does time go?  It's hard to believe it's been nearly a month since I last blogged.  A lot has happened, though.  We've gotten a lot of snow (and a few snow days!), and I battled a horrendous stomach bug.  Not to mention work, and life in general with a teen and pre-teen.

I have been working, though.  I made this bracelet Saturday morning, posted it on FaceBook, and sold it within a couple of hours.

Because of this little bracelet, I was asked to make a bracelet for a co-worker, commemorating her brother who passed away a few months ago.  I quickly agreed, since, having lost my sister 6 years ago, I can sympathize with her pain.

I also tried my hand at a project from Beadwork.  These Celtic knot earrings worked up pretty quickly.  I also posted these on Facebook, and promptly had my BFF requesting a pair.

Obviously, I don't charge her for anything.  I figure if she can put up with me for 30 years she deserves something!  

I also entered Lori Anderson's Bead Soup blog hop.  I don't know who my partner is yet, but I'm anxious to find out.  I've never participated in this before, so I'm excited.  

It looks like I'll be taking a trip to Seattle in May for some work-related training.  I have to admit I'm pretty excited.  I'm embarrassed to say I'm 39 years old and have never set foot on a plane.  I'm not nervous about the flight yet, but I am deathly afraid of heights, so I'll have to try not to think about that part!  Hopefully we'll be able to manage a little sight seeing time in between all the training.  

More to come soon--I'm determined to never go this long between posts again!
