Went on a beach vacation with the family. One of my favorite activities is beachcombing. These are the stones that I’m going to make into stuff.


Orphan beads, at least that’s what I call them. Usually they’re the odds and ends left over from a piece that don’t get put away. Since I’ve been doing this for so long, I have a lot of orphan beads.

Getting my stuff organized has really helped me find homes or make homes for all those orphans. Now I actually have most of my beads and whatnots in a place where I can not only find them, but use them A benefit I hadn’t forseen.

The Wonderful Spouse thought I should have a fire extinguisher. I think he’s right. Especially as I’ve been doing it often enough thatI’ m starting to get comfortable with it. I know that’s when I’m the most dangerous. I feel better knowing that we have afire extinguisher.
