Something new

I have some time since I am on a break from my classes.
So, I decide to play with my lampwork beads I bought at the last Bead & Button show in Milwaukee.
I finished it with a viking knit chain. It worked out great!

Now this is truly unbelievable. A ten-year old giving birth and not only that, via -c-section.... The age of consent in mexico is 12 and so abortion was not available to her. She would have faced prison. What about whoever got her pregnant?!!

Well, good thing I checked my visa statement carefully. Two charges for flights with an airline I never even heard of appeared... Then they were cancelled. So my first reaction was that maybe it was a mistake. Then, because there were 2 I figured I better led Visa know. Turns out this is a common method they use to see if a charge will go through without trouble. They apparently try this a few times and then go for the big one!
Pay close attention.....

So tired....

It must be November! I don't know if it is the weather or if it is the season or what. I am tired..... It can't be the weather because for November, really, I can't complain. The month maybe? I don't know. It could be work, school life or a combination of the above? Let's just say I am looking forward to some time off at Christmas. Did I say Christmas? Yikes, that just makes me realize how fast the time is going. I haven't done any jewelry work. I am just eying the pictures in my books and magazines when I have  a few minutes finally at the end of each day.  How about you, my blog reader? Are you inspired, and productive?
