I could get used to not going in to work.
I have lots to do at home. Getting bored would not be an issue. I think what I like the most, is that the time off has cleared my mind. I have found things to inspire me. Some of what I found to inspire me are things I found on the internet (which I rarely have time to explore) and also just going through some of my own bead stash and books.
There is a downfall, I suppose to this. Finding things I like on the web sometimes means that I buy things I should not spend money on. But how can I resist when I find something so unique, so wonderful that it makes me smile?
The beads I found on the Etsy shop Veradacraft was one of my splurges. Bright, colorful, whimsical. Those are the qualities that usually catch my eye. The beads made me smile....and pull out my wallet. I just had to have some!!
So these are what I bought.

These beads are handmade by Pikalda who lives in Thailand. I love her beads. They are much more beautiful than my pictures show. Take a look at her shop! Maybe you will see something you like too!
