back to normal.. well, sort of ;)

Hi everyone! Happy Friday :) The beads above are a set I created for a custom order. This is my favourite transparent pink with silver wire. I like the simplicity of this design. I hope the customer likes them too!

The big news is: my online lampwork bead shop is now back up and running as normal! All the categories are back and there are TONS of beads to choose from. I'm also having fun creating some beads for Valentine's Day and just took some adorable sweet treats out of the kiln. Pictures of them soon! Any requests for Valentine's Day?

We have quite a bit of snow here in Folkestone. It's only the second time that I've seen a substantial amount of snow since moving to the UK. I LOVE it! It's so beautiful. Of course I'm also realising how difficult it is to run errands (or even go to the post office) when the world is covered in ice and snow. But the novelty hasn't worn off for me yet.

Piglet and Bun seem to really like the snow. They run around like mad and always come back inside with their faces covered in white. I think they must be trying to eat it! You can also see my teeny snowman in the upper left of this picture. I kept him small so as not to overdo it with the back issue.. but I still like him :) He's a bit more covered in snow today. Maybe I should make him a friend!

Any plans for the weekend? I think I'm finally catching Steve's cold so a bit of a rest with some hot tea sounds good to me :) Maybe snuggle up on the couch with some blankets and have a movie marathon. Hmm, what should I watch? We haven't watched the Alien films for awhile. Or maybe the Blade films. Speaking of films, this year looks like a great year for movies, doesn't it? We saw Avatar in 3-D and it was just spectacular! I also want to see Daybreakers, The Wolfman, Alice in Wonderland, Iron Man 2, Eclipse (the third Twilight film).. and that's just the beginning! There's also a new Harry Potter film and a new Narnia film coming out?! Wow. I see lots of trips to the cinema this year ;) What about you? Any films you're looking forward to this year?

Ok, I'm off to make more Valentine's Day beads. Stay tuned for more ;)

Have a great weekend!
