A Bit Distracted

It was a mixed bag of a weekend.
There was a little of this
And some of that.

Plus there was some crafty time mixed in with it all.

As a side note, we had a GREAT time out on the boat, but the lagoon where we sailed was so eerily foggy that I felt like I was in a horror movie. It was awesome and scary at the same time. My imagination was all over the place (and by imagination, I mean the neurotic, zombie fearing part of my brain.) You can see some of the fog in the picture below . . .and this was when it had cleared up!

You probably noticed that my blogging tapered off a little bit last week. As such, I just want to show you the new items in the shop
Copper Flowers Necklace
Red Link Earrings

And that this necklace went on sale.
Button Cluster Necklace - 20% OFF!!

I also stumbled upon a few GIVEAWAYS!
1. There's a bead giveaway over at BeadWorkByH's Blog. All you have to do is let her know your favorite item in her shop to be entered.
2. The ever-fabulous Lori Anderson at Pretty Things is giving away a few beads and findings of her own. She's got a few awesome prize packs for some lucky winners. Leave a comment and share the giveaway info for chances to win.
