Saturday Smiles

On Saturdays I share a couple of things that have made me smile over the last week.

1) Beading!
I've been beading and experimenting with some different styles.  And having fun!  Here's another couple of new pieces I have made over the last week.

I fought with the pendant/dangle on this chain necklace for so long!
I could not get it to behave...  It kept twisting and turning and behaving badly.

I like the result, but somehow it doesn't look like what I had in mind.  I'll probably give it a couple weeks of rest and then go back and see how I can change it to look like what I saw in my head.

Earrings to match.

Even while I was fighting with the beads and cursing them, I was still having fun!  And that is a very good thing.

2) Only 9 days left of school!
I am so looking forward to summer this year.  It feels like the winter has been never-ending.  

3) The snow is MELTING!!
We've had a VERY late spring here in Fairbanks, Alaska, and everybody is so tired of snow.  Here's a picture of the playground from two days ago.

The snow has normally been melted for about a month by now.  We're all VERY frustrated with the never-ending winter...  But the temperature outside right now is 38F and is expected to be in the 40's tomorrow.  Which is snow melting weather! HALLELUJAH!!!
