Bead Soup Party, Birthdays & Addictons

About a year ago I broke my reading glasses (left them in a hot car all day) and I hadn't gotten around to getting them fixed as I was not needing them as much as I usually did. I was going to get the front of the frames replaced, and I think that added to the procrastination of fixing them. This week I decided that with doing my blog and starting the Zentangle that I would have to do something about it. I DID - Gorilla Grip Super Glue - you are my friend - It WORKED! - why didn't I do this a year ago I ask myself - I work in a hardware store - no shortage of glue. So now I have my funky glasses back Yeah!!

This week has also seen me working on my new blog for Artisan Beaders of Australia - so many ideas swimming around, so for once I am really taking my time with the process (so not like me).

Also Miss Ella had her 7th Birthday - she is very happy about being 7. I gave her her first real book, she seems to like reading at the moment so I will be encouraging it as much as I can. We made cupcakes for her class. I made 24 but when I dropped them off to school I was told that there were 25 in the class - so I was hoping that some little boy wouldn't want a girly cupcake, fingers crossed.

Ok before we finish the week lets just add another thing to the list - I am going to be joining in on the Bead Soup Party  (button link on the side) hosted by Lori Anderson at Pretty Things. Will be exciting to see what comes in the mail.

Already addicted to Zentangle - here is one I couple that I completed over the weekend.

Cheers Tania
