Christmas already?!

Yes, in the land of keiara, it's time to start making Christmas and winter beads! I love holiday beads SO much as it gives me an excuse to go overboard with the whimsical stuff ;) First up is a set from last year that I loved so much I had to make another! Christmas Friends includes a snowlady adorned with holly, Santa with his hat, Rudolph sporting his red nose, a pretty angel with a glittering goldstone halo and a snowman in a top hat! Cute! I love their little smiling faces. I really MUST make myself a set of these for a bracelet this year. I said I was going to last year but.. well.. yeah, I procrastinated until it was too late. I ended up wearing my strawberry jewellery set just because it was red!! BAD keiara :(

Next up is Snowfamily Set. This set is super cute and has lots of designing possibilities. I'm thinking of turning it into a necklace. It would make a GREAT addition to a winter wardrobe. These two sets have inspired me to create some new Christmas/winter sets this year too. Watch this space for lots more festive cheer soon!

Hope you're all having a great week. I can't believe it's nearly the weekend already! These short weeks (bank holiday on Monday in UK) really fly past. Any plans for the weekend? It's Kaia's birthday on Sunday. My baby girl is going to be 14! Can you believe it?! I certainly can't. I always thought my mother was crazy when she'd say, "It seems like only yesterday you were a baby in my arms." Now I know how she feels! It really DOES seem like it wasn't that long ago at all that Kaia was the cutest baby in all of history (hey, she was!) and decorating the kitchen with peanut butter and flour. (Yeah, that really happened.) I hope you'll join me in sending a warm birthday wish to Kaia. Ready? Close your eyes and think, 'Happy Birthday, Kaia!' Thanks! I know she appreciates it :)

Off to melt more glass.. and emit a wistful sigh every now and then. My baby's growing up!
