Escape to the Islands

Oops I live on an island so how can I escape to one... G spent the weekend sailing in the Roosevelt Cup... The prizes are awarded on Campobello Island on the former Roosevelt estate... I took the ferry over as a walk on and then came back in 'Money Pit' G's boat.. Here is a somewhat interesting but unfortunately very 'blurred' image of 'Money Pit' from the dinghy as I was being rowed to shore to collect my car... I'd like to blame the 'blur' on the time of day but I think someone accidentally pushed the macro lens button.... and in case your interested he came second the first day sailing in the fog... and third the second day ... and third overall.... the 'boat' that one the first day won overall and the person that won the second day got lost in the fog the first day and never finished.....

Fab Friday Finds

I was checking out Jewlie Bead's etsy shop last week and saw this gorgeous bee pendant and I couldn't believe the price... then I realized that the price was for a tutorial to make the pendant... so You guessed it I bought the tutorial .... I have every gauge of copper wire from 14 to 28 except for 22 and 26 which are the two gauges used for most of the wire wrapping... I tried every hardware store in Maine that I drove past yesterday everyone has 18 gauge and 24 no-one has 22 gauge anything... I may just be forced to use sterling for the 22 gauge.... as I really want to try and make it! The 18 guage spine & antenae are done!

My Favorite Bead

The CGGE TEAM on Etsy has a monthly theme that members are suppose to create a piece for... this month's theme is your favorite piece in your own Etsy store.... Well I went through my store and then I went through my personal bead stash... and this is what I came up with... this is currently my favorite bead... it is on etsy NOW, and I have to leave it there until the end of the month or it sells... at which point in time it may be returned to my bead stash.... All entries in the July Monthly Challenge

I think if I gathered up all my beads from where I have them hidden around the house you could bury me in beads! I have very creative hiding places...
