Daylight Savings Time & Bead Bloggers...It's All Good!

I'm not exactly sure how it got to be Sunday already, but here we are...11:30pm? That's all I'm going to say.

I'm not going to complain about daylight savings time because that means we're getting closer to spring!

Happy Daylight Savings time everyone! Woo hoo!

That's an example of how to embrace something even when it feels like 60 minutes are strangely missing from your life!

This is the perfect time to take a quick trip to blogland and get some last minute creative inspiration from our bead blogger friends!

So much creativity, starting with Andrew Thornton's monthly jewelry making challenge inspired by a book club!

The first necklace, pictured above, was created by Laurel who was inspired by the book, "The Enchantress of Florence."
