This is my slow down period and the weather has been stay at home weather anyway. Of course I would like to be doing stuff, but one step at a time and patience!!! Thank all of you who have given me encouragement.

Well December bead project is finally finished in January. The holidays and my schedule make it hard to do this every month, but I am determined to keep going. To know that others are also struggling can help - so you out there that are stuggling - keep on going. This is for each one of us and everytime I finish one it is a true joy. My grandbabies both want them, but I have told them not until all 12 are finished, then we will talk. One note I have done my beaded border on all 4 sides now, but did not take another picture.
I picked the seahorse because in December, 2007 I saw my very first one in an aquarium and was fascinated. They have a relative called a Sea Dragon that is more awesome than this and you should look it up on the internet if you have not seen one.
The next one I am doing is going to be either November or Januray. I will decide when I am finished with that one, because I took a picture the other day I may want to do for January. Decisions, decisions. It is so much fun to take a photo and see beadwork in the details.

- Now this piece of art work is not mine. It is my grandson's art project we did together today between games of Wii Mini Golf and PBS.org on the computer. Will loves painting. For Christmas I gave him and his cousin Gianni art easels and they have really enjoyed using them. They each got a bag of every kind of art suppies I could find. Earlier in the year Sam's had a book on Kids Arts and Craft ideas and I purchased 2 copies. One for Will's Mommy and one for me. Will found his favorite page today - painting with Hot Wheels. We each got our own cars and paper - we shared paint. One note: if you try this be sure and don't get one of those cars that if you roll it backwards,when you pick it up the wheels spin forward. The paint will spray and fly. Just thought Iwould clue you in on that secret.

Today all day I have worked on my December beading project. It is getting there and I have my idea for the one going back to November. Plan on working hard to catch up. Tomorrow grandson is coming over and will be here until late Monday so there won't be much time for me again, but that is okay. This is memory time for those grandbabies.
Happy New Year again to all.
