Daring Growing Pair

I used two of the lovely, luscious beads that Sue sent me in my surprise package to combine with these resin word charms for a pair of dainty earrings. I love the splash of color from Sue's beads. Yum! Like raspberries.

The resin word charms have seashell designs inside, and the color of her lampwork beads matched their color so beautifully. They have little bubbles as though they are underwater in a tiny tidepool by the shore.

They have the words "GROW" and "DARE" inside. A little bit of encouragement. There are days when I can use a reminder.

And sometimes it seems you have to do one of them to do the other. Don't you think so?

I'm well and truly back in the daily groove, working late last night. I made myself a resolution that I'd try to save more time for creativity in the day, it's so easy to slip back into habits.

At least that way the day goes by quickly.

The daylit hours are getting shorter, have you noticed? When I start up in the mornings now it's not light yet. I guess the seasons are definitely turning. Soon it will be the end of October and headed toward the holiday end of year season.

I guess I better start thinking about holiday designs. Where did the summer go so soon?

Perfect pairing with Sue's beads. I have been noticing too how dark the morning is. The sun doesn't really poke it's head up until after 7 here. But the upside is that it is much cooler!

Hi Lynn - thanks for using those beads - they are perfect for the charms you made!!! It is dark here in the morning too, for the 6:47 bus pickup!

Oh so glad to hear you and your stomach are happily coexsisting!!!

I think you are on the right track will finding more creative time. As one of my profs; often said "A body is only as healthy as it's sense of well being" It is always fun to watch what your mind imagines and your hands create! :)

Ah, yes, Lynn, make more time in the day for creativity. It is all too easy to slip into the usual work patterns at the cost of parts of yourself that are more important. Take care.
