I am still here...

Good Monday to you! I have not fallen off the face of the Earth, though if it were quiet there I might consider it! Since last week Thursday, life has been incredibly hectic and we have been home to sleep and leave again! We did make it home by 6 pm yesterday, and our cats are wondering who these people are that wander in and leave again! Hopefully this week will be considerably more calm. We took Mina and Taylor to the Adams Co. fair in Hastings Thursday night to ride the rides at the carnival. Friday night Chris and I did our shopping (Mina so hates grocery shopping). Saturday, Chris took a lampworking bead class in Grand Island and Mina and I finished our school shopping. We left home at 7:40am and returned home at 9:40pm. LONG DAY! Sunday brought church and we helped with the Faster Pastor race at the fair. Our pastor was one of 8 pastors that raced golf carts on a very muddy track (we had lots of rain Sat and Sun) to raise money for the Greensburg, Kansas tornado fund. That was very entertaining to watch.
Chris has made quite a few beads and I will get pics up for you today. He is a natural! Last night he made me a set with a large focal bead and 4 spacers. He also made a bead just for me! It is lime green and black swirls. I can't wait to work it up! Have a great day!

Looking forward to seeing Chris' lampwork beads and what you create with them. How exciting!

I think it is so cool that your husband also enjoys the creativity of beading with you. Mine hasn't picked up a bead, but is incredibly supportive - and a bit enabling at times!

I took some time this morning and actually posted some stuff to my blog. Why is time always such a big issue in our lives?

Do you mind if I post a link to your blog on my blog?

I'm anxious to see pictures of the beads Chris is making.

Angie, that would be awesome to link up our sites. I will gladly hook yours to mine also. Chris is definitely not your "manly" pursuits kind of guy, fishing is how he relates to his caveman side. He is very creative and artistic and it is VERY wonderful to have hobbies that we can share. Watch out if your husband picks up a bead! It all escalates from there to having a living room full of beads!

I've got you linked to mine now too.
