Days to get caught up!

Schools going to be back in sesion for my daughter soon- Im not sure who's more excited, me or her! haha If we were in Alberta still, she would have started a few days ago! Summer is fun, but it can get boring after a while..... Yes, I am saying it can get boring! lol

So Yesterday I did a lot of wirework earrings, and I hope that they spark some interest! There are cone shaped ones, that I am going to do more of, just different colors of wire and fasceted beads inside of it.

I have been husy today catching myself up as much as I can! I have made new earrings and have been doing LOTS of wire work! I can't wait to get back to normal days when Kira is in school, it's so much easier to attempt things I want to get done in a larger time frame! Plus she is already bored since a lot of her friends are away and busy :(  I can't wait to upload the photo's and edit them. I'll prbbly do it late tonight!

I hope that everyone's week has been going great! C Ya Soon!

I've been really busy this week helping my husband work. He is repairing a boat trailer's axels....a bigger job than what was first thought! I'm detailing the trailer...okay, I'm just painting it- but still! lol It will finally be done tomorrow, yay!  Tonight I am catching up on some house work and laundry, then going to bed-- as I am very tired and sore tonight!

Day 165 & 166

Another wild hot day here in BC! Today we went to Fields and all the summer items are half price, so my daughter picked out some items and one of them was a pool. It's a decent sized pool though! I can sit in it and it's chest deep....and just over 6feet long! So we stuck it on one of our back decks and filled er' up! My daughter is nine, but she is loving it...It was definately a good buy for only $15.00! 

Today I wanted to make some jewelry but never got around to it yet, as I was helping my husband fix up a boat trailor. It definately looked easier to me than I thought it But yesterday he was out too long and got heat/sun stroke- today he's just ILL! Poor guy!

Well here we go for yesterday and today's earrings.

Day 165
Gold earrings (nickel free) with gold plated jump rings formed into a chain

Day  166
