Summer Wind

Do you ever feel as if your lists have lists?

You know – there’s a lot to do, but not enough time to do it?

I’m in that club! 😉

This summer, I’ve really been hoping to make a dent in my “to-do” list. I should say, right up front, that it’s not all chores! At least half of the items are fun. 🙂

Crystal’s List:

* Big chores that need to be done periodically.
* Small chores that I need to complete.
* New projects and craft techniques I’d like to try.
* Then there are the crafts I enjoy doing – but can’t seem to squeeze into my regular schedule.

It really hit me yesterday that summer is flying, and I’d better jump in and scratch a few things off that old list! 😉

Hmmmm . . . chores???

No way!

Learn a new technique?

Not enough time at the moment.

Do something fun that I haven’t done for a while?


May I present Exhibit A?

Summer Wind Bracelet

I hadn’t realized how much I missed working with thread and beads until I began this bracelet.

It’s made with Swarovski Crystals and Glass Seed Beads in shades of Cobalt Blue and Amethyst Aurora Borealis.

The sparkle is really fabulous! Wish I could hand it to you through the computer screen, so you could hold it near the light and be dazzled! 🙂

The moral of this story? Don’t put off something you enjoy! I beg you to do as I say (not as I do!).

Summer is flying ya know . . .

(What’s on your list?)



Oops she did it again

I swear I’m going to fire that Laundry Fairy!

I left her a note before I went to bed last night . . .

but she let me down – AGAIN!

Look at what I found this morning!!!

You can probably guess what I’ll be trying to finish, today. 😉


I realize it’s tough enough to find time for laundry – never mind reading! But summer is knocking on the door, and there will be times when it’s too hot to do anything but read!

Maybe you’ll spend a day at the beach or beside the pool, and you’ll be looking for a good book!

Well, there’s a great list of suggestions in the sidebar here on the blog. Look under “Info”, then click “Summer Reads”, and you’ll find a selection of titles sent in last summer.

If you have any new recommendations, I’ll be glad to add them to the top of the list! 😀
