What is your favorite color or shape to use in your designs? Personally, I love the versatility of faceted rounds and I will always be drawn to blue, green and purple shades. Though, I have found a new love for beads with a Picasso or luster finish!
Wishing you and your family a day filled with laughter, togetherness, love and of course, chocolate!
Spring has finally sprung in the Midwest! Hurrah!
I'm especially excited because this year I will finally be able to get my hands dirty and plant a small garden. I have my beautiful - yet tiny - seedlings started already. I hope to have everything transplanted outside in the next few weeks. Since this is my first garden, I am starting out with some basic veggies and herbs: tomatoes, bell peppers, green onions, carrots (purple, red and yellow), basil, parsley, sunflowers and purple basil. I've even started making my own organic fertilizer - ground banana peels and crushed egg shells!
In order to help this first-time (optimistic, semi-clueless, nervous)gardener, I am taking a workshop at our local Library on container gardening.
Here's to a delicious summer crop!
