365 Days of Earrings

Wrapped Paper Beads

Yesterday I wandered into the Potomac Bead Company in Alexandria, VA. Having just received the bounty of earrings that Jeanne sent, I was thinking of necklaces when I bought a few strands of beads, a couple of large stones, and a bag of wrapped paper beads made at a women's cooperative in Africa.

I sorted the paper beads today, and set about making some necklaces to fulfill a "handmade gift sent in 2011" promise I made early this year. I hope the fact that I didn't make the handmade beads won't negate the deal.

With necklaces finished, I made a pair of earrings for today. Green stone and wrapped paper beads on a modified hoop. Perfect for a Sunday at home, beading and watching TNT movies.

If I were in 3rd grade. You would still be my teacher of choice. Brian and I do an awards banquet every year where the to top seniors pick their most influential educator. One fourth grade teacher consistently gets chosen every year along with mostly high school teachers. If you were in our system, I bet I know a third grade teacher who would be consistently chosen.
