It was a GOOD MAIL day today.
Not only did my bead soup from Andrea arrive, but also the awesome pendant I was lucky enough to win from Erin Prais-Hintz. (Yes, I know I forgot to mention it, that's exactly why I'm doing it now.)
Alright, yes . . .the picture's a bit skewed for my bead soup, but I want to devote a WHOLE post to the joyous reveal of the package tomorrow. Can you wait? Pretty please?
In the meantime, check out the pendant from Erin.
You may recognize the pendant from the cover of the most current issue of Stringing Magazine! How lucky was I?
While I'm showing off all the pretties, let me add the newest pair of earrings in the shop to the list.

Now. . .down to business with the menu for this week. Let me admit first that due to some bumps in the road last week, NONE of the menu for last week was cooked (or even bought.) Yup! So this week is similar with a few changes. What can I say? In addition, since last week was so rough, this week is all about the comfort food. Here we go!
Breakfasts: Toast w/PB or nutella, cereal/grits, waffles (from freezer), buttermilk blueberry breakfast cake, eggs w/bacon and toast, hashbrown baskets
Lunches: Ham sandwiches, homemade hot pockets, chicken salad, bean burritos, quesidillas, soup and grilled cheese, leftovers
Chicken alfredo w/broccoli
Pork chops w/cauliflower gratin & rice mix
Potato soup w/salad
Pot roast w/carrots, potatoes, rice, field peas
That's my plan for this Meal Plan Monday, check out loads more that are (most likely) not repeats over at I'm an Organizing Junkie.
Now for something a bit more serious. The fabulous Andrew Thornton is reaching out for help to open Allegory Gallery. From his own blog,
It's an opportunity to help us open a creative space that's one part bead store, one part fine art gallery, one part jewelry boutique and one part gift shop. The aim of Allegory Gallery is to promote artisan craftspeople, inspire the community to explore their creativity, and act as a focal point for classes and artistic education.
Currently they are asking for help to raise the funds to open this creative and inspiring space. Read more about it on Andrew's blog and go like Allegory Gallery's Facebook page as well!
One more thing before I head out to play some more the the awesome bead soup. . .hehehehe!
A GIVEAWAY. . .Love My Art Jewelry is giving away a pair of really neat copper earrings. You need to go to the post to see these beauties!
That's it. . .I think. I hope your Monday is and continues to be spectacular!
