I know I've been a bit absent lately, and I'm feeling the need to tell you all What I Did On My Summer Vacation ... if only it was all vacation.
.. well some of it was. You all know that I recently spent a few weeks in central Europe. And then over the Labor Day holiday my sister visited me. I know that sounds like a lot of time out of the office, and it was. But I have been working endless hours this summer, so it was so wonderful to get a break. And to spend some of that with my sister.
She was celebrating one of those milestone birthdays, and she decided to fly in to spend it with me. Pretty nice, huh? I don't get to see her much since she lives in New Zealand, so spending a whole week with her was awesome. Lots of catching up and doing what sisters do. We did a bit of clothes swapping and jewelry swapping. Well a lot of that actually. It was fun for me to pull out a few of my newer pieces and let her pick some things to bring home with her. This simple peyote cuff was one of the ones she decided to take home. It slipped on like a glove and looked so nice on her.
I have lots more to show you all from the Europe trip, and a few recent pieces I've been working on. I'm looking forward to cooler weather and time at the bead table.
