So here's the thing...

I'm tired.  I'm really just exhausted.  This past month has been rough.  We passed a stomach virus around our house, and then after I got caught up from that, my son got done with school.  And on top of all of that, for whatever reason, no one has been sleeping particularly well in our house, which has left me with little motivation.  On top of that, we had a really bad storm come through 2 nights ago, and whatever free time I might have had for creating has been spent cleaning up glass from multiple broken windows, dealing with our insurance company, and picking up broken tree branches.  I'm trying to get back in to the swing of things, though.  It's just been hard.

Prior to all of this, though, I got these gorgeous yellow agate beads.  I love them so much.  This bracelet, and a pair of matching earrings went on a cruise to Mexico with my friend.

 Her trip inspired me to make these earrings that make me think of lemon-lime margaritas.  :-)

 I've been sitting on these acrylic coins for several months now.  They are HUGE!  But they are so lightweight, I knew they were just perfect for earrings.
 And another Christmas bead necklace has found it's way to my Etsy shop.

I do have a lot of new ideas in my head, and even a few new pieces waiting to be photographed (1 bracelet, 2 anklets, and a necklace).  At the moment, I just need some time to take some pictures and get them listed. Hopefully I'll be able to get back into the swing of things after a few nights of good sleep!
