What a weekend!!!

Ended up being a VERY busy weekend in spite of the "minor" surgery I had on Friday morning. Saturday afternoon our grandsons - Chase and Connor - had a 5th/6th grade football game - and, of course, there was no way I was going to miss that - it was their first game. Unfortunately they lost :( But it was still fun watching them. Saturday evening we had our daughter's two - Cameron and Kendall - for a couple of hours. That about did me in for the day! But it was soooo much fun spending time with family - grandkids are the greatest!!!

Sunday I managed to get some jewelry pieces designed and put together. I decided to try a couple of "illusion" necklaces on sterling silver coated wire. They turned out very nice. The first one I did in pink with a pink ribbon bead for Breast Cancer Awareness.

This turned out pretty good so I decided to try another in Ohio Northern University colors. My BFF at work has a daughter going there.

Then I made this gorgeous bracelet with gold plated filigree beads and my left over turquoise beads. I love when I just throw beads together and they turn out looking nice! :) I think I'll call this one "Tropical Twilight"....
This is the eyeglass holder necklace I created using an old hoop earring and wooden beads.
I finally got my price tags made. I used my Cricut cutter to cut them out of pink lightweight card stock. I printed clear labels with my shop name, web address, and email address and put them on the front of each tag and will put the price on the back. I tied white beading thread to the end to attach to each piece.
I ordered more beads today in hopes of getting several local school bracelets made before my first craft show in two weeks. I'm starting to get excited!!! Hope the weather cooperates!!
