It was a month of vacation coupled with extreme productivity. I learned quite a bit (how to Zentangle and make paper beads), I spent time with wonderful people (yay family!), I managed to relax (not an easy feat for me), and I accomplished many beading projects (four major reveals--woo!).
And that's not all. Just this last week, I was able to get quite a bit more done. For example...
|Is that a fringe I see?|
|Why, yes, it is a fringe! In fact, it's bells and pearls and crystals and glass, paired with a handmade lampwork focal by Glassy Fields.|
|Close-up of the focal.|
|I made so many mistakes in this tangle, but you can't even tell. Woo!|
|Why, yes, that is a sentimental piece of twine. |
Why do you ask?
|Bright and bold bracelet--all strung on said sentimental piece of twine.|
...And now it's September.
The beginning of Autumn is just around the corner--the shadows are already getting longer, the edges of the leaves are starting to turn gold. Autumn is always a time of change... And we'll have to see what changes this month might have in store.
August was a good month... Here's to hoping that September is, too!
