When I Win the Lottery Thursday 10-27-2011 RV

I've always wanted an RV. Simple or big and sexy, I don't really care, I just know that for all of the driving around we do on trips (I really don't like to fly) an RV would really come in handy. I haven't decided on a make or model or even if I'd rather have one that gets towed behind a truck or one that can tow a small car. I just want one and so of course, when we win the lotto, it is on our list of "to buy." It would even come in handy when we have house guests for extended periods of time. Of course driving through New Mexico (I've always had a love affair in my mind with this state) and then going to the Grand Canyon last week makes the desire for an RV even bigger. If we didn't have to pay for a hotel we couldn't stayed longer and seen more.... And what a way to homeschool my kids? Would it get any better than learning on the road about our wonderful country? So anyway, here are a couple of pictures for you;

W.I.P. Tuesday 10-25-2011




I haven't gotten much done aside from the cuffs yesterday and the set of 12 navy paw prints above. The others are all still in progress as of tonight. I have a good excuse, though, we went on a mini vacation to the Grand Canyon via Albuquerque. We had a great time and I can't wait to go back. Especially to Albuquerque and the Painted Desert.... some day :-)

W.I.P. Tuesday 10-18-2011

Today I have completed an order of 34 tiny beaded paw prints (pict. shows 25) in navy and white size 15/0s Delicas. They are in the mail and hopefully make it to their new home in a couple of days. The lady who purchased them is making 17 pairs of stud earrings (gluing them onto flat headed stud earrings) for her daughter and fellow cheerleaders. I will actually be making 12 more in size 11/0s Delica next week for the moms of the group. I had to order more beads in this navy color as I didn't have it in my stash. *gasp*

I also made a lot of progress on my Little Pittie Cuff in Olive despite being sick... it just needs a button and toggle. And I've started another Little Pittie Cuff in a teal for another pit bull rescue. The rest of this week I intend on getting the paw prints attached to the suede for cuffs as well as making some more paw prints for lariats as I have had some requests for certain colors. Busy little beader that I am :-)

Sorry I missed a post last week... ended up sick with a bad cold. And I'm still getting over it :-{
