Peace, Love & Bead Bloggers!

Happy Sunday! As always, this is a great day to reflect upon the last week in the beading/jewelry making world!

I wanted to share my new Katiedid project with you today, but thought I better wait until I figure out the closure part and save it for tomorrow. For now, it is a 3 strand, multi-color, mosaic-looking bracelet! Hopefully it will stay that way :)

And now, here's some fun stuff to either wind down the weekend or fun stuff to kick off the new week!
