Attempting Earrings

 The weather was unseasonable warm (70's) today, so I took my kits and beads outside and tried my hands at making earrings.  I don't wear earrings much, so this was new for me, but fortunately my neighbor was visiting over and she DOES wear earrings and was able to give me some advice and confirmation.  (Note:  I will always take advice and suggestions, as everyone has different preferences of what they actually like.)  Here are pictures of the final results which are also available on my Etsy shop.

It is the middle of November friends!!!

Today is November 15th. Half way through November already!?!
I’m sure there are things I’d hoped to have done by this time in the year. Some pop into my mind…others I try to give rest.
But I am reminded by a Gentle Voice… “and those things were?”
<sheepish grin>

Not shopping.
Not worrying.
Not cleaning.
Not stressing.
Not forcing.
Not over planning.
Not over indulging.
Not pushing.
Not clinging.
Not resisting.

Rather…loving on those around me.
Listening instead of talking.
Hearing instead of answering.
Praying instead of solving.
And sharing it all.Sometimes I don’t feel like I have much to share with those around me. Perhaps that is because I spend more time in the things I ought “Not” do, rather than the things I should indeed do.
Thankfully, there is the still the rest of the year to give opportunity to the latter.
