Peace, Love & Bead Bloggers!

I think this day set a record of the fastest Sunday to fly by yet! Wow! It's time now to gear up for the week, let's go....!!

First, do we need a new bracelet or earrings to make tomorrow a better day? If yes, get your beads out!!

Second, have we read bead blogs this weekend? If not, you are in luck! Here are a slew of them to get you started!

This is how it usually begins for me and once I get through the list I start clicking on blogroll links!! I know I won't get to bed early, but that's okay, this is important for my well being!!

Have a GREAT new week!!

A new pair of earrings sounds like a great idea...though playing hookie from work sounds good too :)
