I know that many of you make jewelry, but I also realize that many of you have never had the chance to learn.
Today, I’d like to show you a post where I discuss lots of creative things you can do with beautiful beads besides making jewelry! 😀
If you can sew on a button, or thread a needle, work with glue, or find a pretty little crystal dish around the house – you can have fun with beads.
As I say in the article: “Incorporating the artistry of beads into our everyday surroundings is a recipe for a smile.”

Have I told you lately that you are wonderful?
Thanks so much for the sweet “welcome back” messages in yesterday’s comments! 😀
Remember that I mentioned I was going to mix a few “summer re-runs” in with new posts during July and August?
I’ll still be here every day writing new posts for Mondays and Thurdays, and also selecting some of my past favorites for the other weekdays. I’ll be responding to email as usual, and trying to answer your comments individually, when time permits!
I know you’ll be enjoying breaks for vacation, and your gardens, and cookouts, and days at the beach or pool! I hope you’ll keep checking back whenever you have time to see what I have waiting here for your perusal! 🙂
Today, I have one of my earlier posts on the ins and outs of consignment. Although I wrote it from the perspective of a person who makes jewelry – it would apply for any other craft! Even if you are not crafty, you might still like to sell household items at a consignment shop! The rules are the same.
Hey . . . didn’t I say that I wasn’t writing a post today? This is pretty verbose for a “non”-post!
Guess I’m wordy, even when I’m trying not to be! 😉

First of all, a great big thank you to all of you for this week’s comments! I feel as if I know you even better with the warm and thoughtful words you wrote.
To tell the truth, I did this “rerun” week of archived posts because I needed a little break. I hadn’t stopped posting during our vacation a couple of weeks ago and I was sort of exhausted. I was going to stop for that week but then I read all sorts of stuff about how the blog would suffer and I’d lose all of my readers, (Yikes!) so I posted.
But a break is a good thing and this week I figured out how to have one by showing you some of the articles I wrote in the early days of the blog. And even though I’ve written mini posts all this week, it definitely seemed like a break because I had those links to show you each day!
Next week, I’ll be going live again – as they say on TV 😉 – and will write all new material.
Today’s link – Day 5 is to a post about hobbies, and athough I mention beads – I mean any kind of hobby. 🙂

Well now I’ve gotten myself into a pickle! 😀
I feel as if I should explain the “daily entry” to this week’s giveaway to anyone who is just landing here for the first time . . .
BUT . . . I hate to bore the heck out of my sweet regular readers!!! Please forgive me as I do another quick explanation before I get to today’s link!
This week I’m having a “blast from the past” and posting links to 5 of my favorite articles from the archives! There will be a new link each day and if you leave a comment on any (or all) of this week’s posts, you will be entered into this week’s giveaway!
You can have up to 5 chances – one for each day – if you desire! It’s your choice for how many chances you would like. Just check for a new link from Monday through Friday. The contest will end on Sunday, so there will be time to catch up if your week was busy and you missed a couple of days!
Today’s link – Day THREE is to a post about economizing on holiday gifts! I wrote it in October, but I think it’s appropriate now as a “Christmas in July” article! Don’t be frightened by the fact that it states there are only 65 days until Christmas!!! We actually have 156 days and summer is a great time to begin planning!
