One of the things I have really enjoyed since I have started making jewelry and Blogging, is that I see what other designers and bloggers are doing as well. I love commenting when I can and getting comments, and so often I see so many things that I really, really like, but for some reason I can't share them at the time.

I am also a big fan of Dana over at Dana's jewelry designs. I love tutorials of any kind and Dana posted one this past week that made swirls and curls look easy, ( I am still having a hard time keeping them even.) Dana also makes awesome jewelry pouches and Gem Trees. You can find her work at Artfire. Take a minute to check out their shops. I think you will be certain to find something you like.

the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together.

wounded their closest companions even though they gave off heat to each
other and they began to die, alone and frozen.

they learned to live with the little wounds that were caused by the close
relationship with their companions, but the most important part of it was the
heat that came from the others. This way they were able to
perfect people, but the best is when each individual learns to live with
the imperfections of another and can admire the other person's good

God has promised forgiveness to your repentance, but He has not promised tomorrow to your procrastination.

Unlike most other tips I have posted on Tuesdays, this one isn't really about saving money. Well, maybe it is depending on how you look at it. I recently took a trip to Gatlinburg, Tn to meet some family and I had a great time while I was there. Everything was decorated for the fall season and as I was shopping in the "Village" for some cinnamon bread from the Donut Friar, I couldn't help thinking how creative some people are. I know that decorators are paid to design displays and it is a year round job, but I never would have thought to make scare crows like these...
I guess the tip I had in mind is to look around and see what can be used in place of something else ( in this case silly "store bought" scare crows.)

OK, it is Monday, I have taken off almost 2 full weeks, having a blast, going on road trips, meeting family etc, but now, it is time to get some new projects going. The weather has turned cooler and there is nothing in the world like October at the beach, ( unless maybe it is April at the beach). I have been picking up shells,
watching pelicans and sandpipers dive and play.
