Wrapping Up The Holidays And Moving Forth

The best part of the holidays were and will always be the gathering of loved ones.  Dear older son flew back to Arizona yesterday, and younger two return to University today.  Here is a photo of the kids taken at my parents house, playfully shoving each other – always hard to get a good photo of them together.  When I bring out the camera, it’s almost a cue for them to make faces and act silly, especially the boys:


Some quick lampwork bead jewelry – a commission from my sister:


And to plant some pink buttercups.  On a cycling ride up to Oak Glen, dear daughter saw these and thought I would enjoy them – so thoughtful!


Now on to tackle all the things I have planned for the year!


  1. You have such a beautiful children. Your home must feel a bit quiet with the kids gone. Your beads are gorgeous. Enjoy your gardening. Such a contrast to our snowy chilly weather.

  2. A wonderful picture of your children! It is always fun to have the kids home, especially when they are all together! Happy New Year!

  3. It’s a cute picture even if they are being silly. Beautiful children. Love your beads. Happy New Year.

  4. Happy New Year, Linda! I always enjoy a visit to you blog because you always share such beautiful projects and photos…as if they photos weren’t pretty enough, you have such great borders. You are the digital Queen! 🙂 I agree with the above comments – your children are beautiful young adults. They are all so photogenic!
    Your new earrings are so sweet – love the lampwork!!
