Spring Fever
Well it was a particularly long and difficult winter.  After a few brutal storms (like being stranded in our house for 4 days without power.) Spring is very welcome!  Bright cheerful colors look fresh.

Back From South Africa

Chunky Green Necklace made with beads from South AfricaChunky Purple Necklace with beads from South Africa
I just came back from a trip to Cape Town, South Africa.  I went with my whole family for my nieces wedding, which was amazing.  A beautiful wedding in one of the most beautiful places in the world.   It was a very special trip for my family as we were able to connect with family we haven't seen in years.  My kids were able to meet cousins, aunts, uncles they have never met before.   While I was there taking in the sights and catching up with family,  I had to go check out the local bead work.  It was amazing and very inspirational.  I also couldn't help myself from buying some beads!
