Ashley is very interested in doing nearly everything her big sister does, so she crawled up into the chair and started coloring just like a big girl. I captured the moment while she was coloring with crayons. She also colored on the table and used her fingers and A LOT of slobber to try to wash it off.
I forgot to show the pom-poms that we put in Mia’s room. They turned out well and I ended up doing most of the work. Surprise ! But it was fun and she likes them in the corner of her room. We did one BIG one and two little ones. It is all fancy now! Ashley has one little white one in her room and she points to it all the time so I would say she is thrilled with hers too!
I’m headed off to work on beads and I plan on doing an earring sale in the next few weeks so stay tuned for that. The “Earring Extravaganza” is coming!
Here is a bracelet to add variety to your days when you wear it. Go here to see more.
Silly story for me. Yesterday I took the girls to the mall and Mia heard a train bell in the mall. YES, a train bell. Well, it was a miniature train that was part of a Easter bunny display and she HAD to have a ride in it. So...I relented and got into the very little train engine with Mia and then held Ashley on my lap since she was too little to ride by herself. Off the train went around a very little track that took us around, and around, and around. Get my drift? Oh, I nearly lost my pretzel that we had just eaten and couldn't wait for the end of that ride. The "conductor" gave us an EXTRA long ride :::wink, wink::: since no one else was in line and I gotta' tell ya', I wish he hadn't. It was all I could do to keep myself together. I closed my eyes and wished it would end SOON. It did and I crawled out vowing to NEVER do that again! Next time their father can crawl into that thing and listen to the train bell and toss his pretzel. BUT...Mia and Ashley had fun. That is what counts!
Welcome to those of you who are new to my blog and website and are coming here from the UBP09. I will sum up quickly that I am a wife, a mother of two little girls, work from home part-time and also have my own business. My business is Delightful Designs by Robbon and I create jewelry that incorporates my glass lampwork beads. God has helped me every step of the way on this journey and I consider myself richly blessed beyond measure.
Please leave a comment to let me know you visited. I can't wait to meet new bloggers and I just might have a freebie again at the end of all of this fun!
Happy Spring! Isn't it wonderful that Spring is finally here? Love it! It is only going to be 45 degrees today so that isn't very fun, is it? No matter. Spring is here. In honor of this wonderful day, we are going to make paper pom-poms today to hang in the girls' rooms. We always change the things that hang in their rooms to match the seasons, so the snowflakes can come down today. :::phew::: No more snow, hopefully! If they turn out cute, I'll take pictures and put them up to share.
Enjoy your day!
Ever wanted a bracelet that you could change the charms to match your day? Well, this is a bracelet! This is the first bracelet I have done and I made it in basic colors of red, black, brown, and blue. I can custom design four beads in colors you choose and styles you choose. Go here to see more.
On a separate note, it's FRIDAY! Oh joy! I love Friday and the following few days. Enjoy your weekend!
I also designed a few things while Mark and the girls were away over the weekend. I designed a necklace called Stroll in the Stream. It is a lovely necklace! Click here to see it.
Have a good day everyone and I'll put up other pictures within the week of the other things I made. I enjoyed my time with the family away but I was thrilled to have them come home again, too! Now the house is filled again with little voices. Ahhhhh.
So, what have I been doing with my free time here at the house? Well, yesterday I cleaned my basement and wen t through MANY containers of baby clothes to get ready to sell and donate. The time has come to make room for more containers of clothes so I'm purging what I currently have. Today I went to the bead show (obviously) and I have been busy making beads but I'm taking a break for a bit. I am also working with a wonderful designer (I'll tell you all about her soon) on a new website. I can't wait to show you what we have been working on. Yes, it still has pink in it because I simply can't give that color up yet. Maybe someday I'll take to another color but for now, pink is it. Cream is a close second. Yes, cream is a color. : ) Well, I'm off again to make more beads and tomorrow I'll make more jewelry when the beads come out of the kiln. Oh joy!
Mark has gone to visit his parents and took the girls with him so I am home and get to enjoy the to do list that has been growing. I'm tackling the basement today and that will make me a happy camper and then I'm going to torch and make beads and jewelry to my hearts content. I even have a bead show that I am going to go to this weekend. OH JOY! Anyway, enjoy your weekend!!!
My nephew, Nathan Frisch, is in a band, All The Day Holiday, and they are on a short tour that started February 28th. He is the handsome guy on the far right. Cute kid, eh? Well he is a kid to me since he is younger than me. ha! ha! They won a local competition some time ago and will be releasing their album soon. It is so cool to see this come together for them. Keep an eye (or ear) out for them because they are going to go places. GO NATHAN!
I snapped this picture the other night while they were on our bed. They both felt so bad and while watching the television, Ashley put her head on Mia's lap and Mia rubbed her head. It was a touching moment considering they don't love on each other much so I was glad I had a camera near to capture it.
Enough about the sick ones. Since things are returning to "normal" I plan on sitting down at the torch this week. I have a few orders to fill and also want to work on a new piece or two to show you. Spring is coming soon and I want to start making things with fun and vibrant colors. Enough of these gray, cloudy skies and drab days. I'm ready for warmer, sunny days, and for little flowers to peek out of the ground. aahhhh. Oh wait, I was talking about jewelry. That's right. I got carried away there. I'll get to some new pieces later this week if all goes well. I have some silver chain here that I purchased a few months ago and I want to make a piece with it so hopefully it will turn out like it looks in my head. HOPEFULLY!
