If ever you go into Beadfx in Toronto( be sure to go to the table with the fun lampwork beads. These leaf headpins were new to the store at the time  and I had to have these  two pairs. I added a few beads and used basic wire working techniques and these I love love love!!!!!

These lovely headpins were designed and made by Deborah Muss and there's a wide selection at the store. So feast your eyes and pick up a few pairs and put a smile on someone's face this Christmas.

Classes = Two more bracelets!!!

I made this Chainmaille Regaliz Bracelet in Pamela Kern"s class recently. The chainmaille was done in the class but I completed the rest at home by making the wire spiral beads.

This is the end result of taking Amy's Basic Bead Crochet class. I'm now on my fourth bracelet yipee!!!!!!

Thank You For Your Service

This morning I went to the Remembrance Day celebration at my son's school. It was a very solemn ceremony and throughout the many class performances the word that stood out to me is "Peace".

My son's class sang "Let There Be Peace On Earth" and another class sang a song about peace around the world. The word peace stood out in many different languages and this is what we all need wherever we are in this world. As we focus on that struggle for peace let us remember the many men and women who fought and continue to fight for this cause. It is with my deepest gratitude, honour and love for you and your loved ones I'll echo "Thank you for your service" and add "God's blessings, guidance and protection on you and yours".
