WOW! Change is good right?

I am sorry my friends no pictures today.  Lots of changes going on in my little corner of the world so I wanted to give you a quick update that I am still here and you may be hearing more from me in the coming months. 

Oh wait I do have one picture..... My ECC beads for May!  Look at these beauties!

And totally check out that button!!!!!!  Hop over to visit Jeannie and totally check out her website!

First change is that we have been loading up Shelby's stuff in three different trips (really did her stuff multiply that much in 2 semesters of college?) since Friday last week as she is coming home for the summer.  I know some of you have heard me complain about the silence in the house but I am sure I will miss it over the summer.  I am a very proud Mom that she has made it through her first year of college with only minor drama scars. LOL

Second change is happening here on my blog as part of my new venture in jewelry.  I have written a tutorial and it is with my sweet sweet testers as we speak.  I will make a formal announcement when they have given me all their feedback.  Yay with the help of the most awesomist IT girl ever and about 45 minutes of WTF  Dawn has set me up with a new tab on my blog.  Whoo Hoo I have a store! OMG I am nervous and excited all at once!  Wishes of luck and sales welcome now.

The third change is well.....facing the fact that I am completely nuts!  I have taken on challenges 3 of which will be revealed this month.  I really should get them started huh.  And I was chosen as a reviewer for Lark books.  I am so happy about this but a bit overwhelmed at the moment because I have 9 to review for you.  Yes 9!  Because I want to insure that I at least try one of the project from the books I can (all but the ones that involve fire because I am not allowed to play with fire or hot melting materials...Don't make me relive the glue gun incident of 1995 it was ugly!)  it is taking a bit of time. 

So there is your little glimpse into my world of change at the moment.  I will be getting back in the swing of things soon.....I hope!

Hugs and Blessings

    Change is kind of scary, but it's also good. So, good luck with your new endeavors. And, enjoy the college years, both the away times and the home times. The 4 years go by in a flash!
