Still In A Rut

I am still in a creative rut, though I keep trying to get out! My creativity has taken a big hit by stress over the last several weeks. What makes this situation so frustrating is that most often the best thing for me to do to combat stress is to bead, but this time, it's just not happening! I did create this bracelet, but I'm not happy with it. I think the crystals are just not right. I like the width and the button closure, but the crystals seem loose in their framework. Ah, well, I think I'll take it apart and try again.

Mini Vacation

I'll be away for a few days! I'm not sure if I'll have computer access there, so if I don't EC drop on your site or answer comments for the next few days, don't worry, I'll be back soon!

Something Else I've Been Up To...

These are a few of the photographs I've taken lately. We have some really pretty flowers in our yard and the neighbor does as well, so I thought I would take advantage of the beauty. I'm thinking about taking up photography as a little sideline and maybe start including notecards in my shop, but I'll have to see how it goes.
