While Taking a Break

I had in my mind to make some new items for my Etsy shop. I put the materials aside, but they kept "calling" to me. So I decided, while I took a break from sewing and painting, to make some jewelry. I have been having fun, but I think tonight, I will try to get some sleep. Oh, and my sister was here visiting from SanAntonio with our favorite athlete (Sammy, number 3; scratch that, age 3). We had fun visiting a few antique shops in Bethany, Oklahoma and found lots of great items.
