I am on such a tea kick lately. I am in love with tea! Here is my latest find, Cardamon Cinnamon by Republic of Tea....................... I am so low on beads, time to restock, but I managed to have enough to put these two Goddess bracelets together that will be mailed off to a friend. :-)

Snowy Day Beading

I finished the wand on the very left today. I had some good smelling candles burning and sipped chai tea and Jake napped with his head on my lap, while beading. The cute thing about Jake, he was having all kinds of dreams today. He was very verbal and he was smacking his lips and eating something in his dreams today. He has been on a diet since Dec. 8th and I think he was dreaming about eating his beloved cheese! (sweet Jake)

More Freezing Rain and Snow

Today is another cold day. It is rainy and snowy and just a cold mess. I guess that it is to start snowing hard later on and we will have another five inches of snow or so. So I have finished chores, housework, errands and I don't have work today, so I will now settle in for some beading. I have some nice chai tea brewing and today I will practice my "lightening" pattern with the peyote stitch. I haven't done it in years, but I'm sure I will pick it right up again. I've posted pictures of the wands I did last week, they are just in a different light. There is also the small abalone talisman that I just finished a few days ago. I keep making these things and accumulating them, but I have no idea what I will do with all of them!

Ice and Fog

This photo is of my backyard a few weeks ago. It was so foggy and the fog seemed to form this light ice on the trees and branches. It just looked so pretty. This was one of my productive crafting days too. This kind of weather just calls to me!
