Time To Turn the Lighting On Early?

Hey everybody, thanks for stopping by this cool and dark Thanksgiving week. It seems like winter decided to stop by and enjoy Thanksgiving with us.  This will be a quick one this week.

First off, I would like to give thanks for my family we have been through it but I am thankful for them.  I also am thankful for everyone who has visited my blog and left comments.  Thank you!

Another thing that I am thankful for is my beadwork.  There has been many times that it has helped me get through the tough times.

Up North during the funerals and emotional times of late I worked on a challenge from the Facebook group Seed Beads and More.  It was a September monthly challenge but I worked on it a bit late.  The challenge was to do a Beaded Scarf.  I used Silver 11/0 and Rainbow metallic peacock 11/0 seed beads.  I used a Rainbow blue Button as a clasp.  I really love it and it was fun to make.



This was a lot of fun to make as I mentioned before but I don't know if I will make another one any time soon.  Mainly since it just takes so many beads.  

Also this week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Lighting.  At first I read it wrong and designed a pattern for LightENing. But luckily I caught myself before I started beading it and redesigned the pattern for a light bulb.  Kinda simple but I like it.  


Well, that is it for me this week.  Since we had our Thanksgiving dinner on Monday I am going to go and get me some leftovers.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 nd check out the challenges over there.  Both blogs have also posted next years list so check it out and jump right in!

Have a blessed and creative week and enjoy the turkey!
