For Jerilyn

I'm posting my beadwork for my friend, Jerilyn. Aren't you proud of me for the photos? These are some of my favs. My friend Angela got me started on beading. I personally think I have too many irons in the fire, as my mom would say. I really don't need another craft, but this is really fun. And unlike scrapbooking, you actually can finish and have a beautiful little trinket to wear. I don't know if everyone is like this, but I just have craftiness that I have to let out. I sometimes just feel like I need to make something or craft something. Not that I'm all that wonderful at it, but I like to play with stuff!!! I know that sounds weird to non-crafters. I just wish I had a way to make a living at it. Way to go Jessica at Funky Finds. What a cool job!!! Everyone should check out her site-it's on my favorite blogs. A few necklaces are by Angela and a few are mine. We share our stuff and bead away on the days we can keep our kiddos occupied. I love the name bracelet. Brandi had Angela make it for my bday and I have a necklace, too. People love them when I'm out and about, and I already have an order for two of them. I can't wait to get the little blocks in so I can make one! Aren't they cute!!!
I have to tell you this before I end my post. This morning my brother-in-law brought Campbell over. My sister is in California till Friday for her work, so he's having to step up and be Mr. Mom. Campbell has been sick so it hasn't been a breeze so far but we are all managing. Thank goodness I talked Nana into coming and helping me this week. Now, Shane is a typical first time daddy. Nervous about the usual things, doesn't always know what to do when she cries, pukes, etc. but he does try his best. He does well with her considering that he's alone all week with a nine month old. I don't think Kyle could do it-he'd probably call in my mom for help. But I have to tell you that I was so impressed this morning. He shows up with Campbell in her Halloween shirt, candy corn pants, and socks-and it all matched. But best of all he has a black clippy in her hair!!! Isn't that hysterical. I mean how many daddys would take the time to put in a clippy. I thought that was adorable.

Yeah! Thanks so much for posting the pictures and those are gorgeous! Love Love Love the one with the picture. Great job and thanks for sharing your craftiness.
Shane is such a cutie. Anytime Chance had the girls and sent them to school - the teacher always asked if their Mom was out of town - based on their hairdo!
Hey - your stockings are awesome. You should be so proud of those!

I'm going to let Shane read your blog. I think he would appreciate the compliment about his "daddy" skills! I appreciate all the help with my sweet Campbell while I was out-of-town. You are the best sister ever!!!
