Hiya everyone and thanks for stopping by. This week I have been so sore and tired! I think it has to do with the start of the changing of the weather. My shoulder has been in so much pain this week and of course my knee has been angry at me this week, more on that later. Also, I think that work has been beating me up as well! Thanks work! lol.
If you have been reading recently you know I lost some weight; I want to continue riding that wave all the way to my goal weight. So this week I also started a 30 day personal challenge. I want to walk every day. Yesterday I did not get much in but I walked. I started on Tuesday, which was after 2 weeks of non-activity. I think I was proud of myself for losing the 30 pounds and decided to revert back to my old habits. No more! I have to be accountable to someone so I am writing it here.
I wear a pedometer while I am on the treadmill and I wear it at work. I have now gotten up to 20 minutes on the treadmill. I don't want to go more than that right now for fear o hurting my knee. I also think that all this walking is making my knee act up. But I am not gonna let that stop me from walking.
This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Necklace. I have been making more necklaces this year than I have before. I am just to impatient to wait the time it takes to make a necklace, lol. But this is a quick and easy one for me to make.
For this inchie I used 5 colors including copper seed beads as the chain. I wanted this to be one of those beautiful golden necklaces with a huge sapphire stone on it, on it's way to a red carpet gala. So what do you think? Do you see the mess-up? I did not until just now! ARGGG!!!! Makes me so mad, lol. But that is ok. The Native Indians believe that all beadwork should have a spirit bead in it, a bead that does not fit in the design, wrong color or placement. So I will call this my spirit bead.
Also this week I finalized this years Christmas ornament design. Sadly I cant show it here since some of my family reads this blog and I want it to be a surprise to them. I did also finish the Christmas earring designs for the ladies at work. That I can show you.
This is a pattern from here. It works up quickly and I added the crystal bicone in the middle of the earring as an extra bling.
So that is it for me this week. Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the great necklaces they have created. Have a blessed and creative week.
