I've missed reading your blog posts but am happy to hear you've been busy with bead stuff! The blue bead is very cool - would look great with a pair of jeans that are faded just right. I'm sorry I missed out on your Mexican Fiesta bead set on etsy...LOVED the fun & bright color mix!!! Have a great weekend :)

I just figured out that I left this comment under the wrong posting - your Nov. 4 post -- so sorry.

Nice to see you blogging again, but just wanted to say I will keep your sister in my prayers and you have done the right thing to put family first.

I would love to win your bead.

I look forward to the Bead Soup reveal and can't wait to get to working with the beautiful soup you sent me.

Jean
