I love orchids because the blossoms last so very long, but I love amaryllis because they are so very, very bright and vibrant. Here’s a couple that I have blooming right now,
Some new beads,
I’ve been getting away from making the big hole beads, trying to get out of my rut, and have been getting back into the small beads and focal beads,
I love, love, love Dark Aurae, but it’s so hard to work with sometimes. I really like getting the green shimmers, but it’s such a touchy combination of oxygen/propane, it’s really hard to get, so mostly I end up with just the blues. But they look pretty too!

Two years ago today David collapsed and we called the ambulance. Two days later, he was gone. It seems like a lifetime ago, so very, very long ago.
