Newest pieces

So here are my new pieces.

I wanted to try an learn how to crochet, so here's my very first crochet piece




This next piece is braided with five strands. It can be a double bracelet or at child's headband. ;) 




An a little more




This one is made from a tutorial from ruby's, I love her site. Go ahead a take a peak there, you'll find a lot of tutorials and inspiration. Ruby's beadwork


Not really a lot of new things. Haven't really been beading much. Not that I don't want to, I just don't have time. And the time I do have I spend working on a crochet thingy I am trying to make work. Beading is easier for my, but I like a challenge. Besides crocheting is easier to put down and away when I need to go some where or if my son needs me, beading is not. But I'll grab that needle again, soon enough.

I am too lazy

Well I am LOL

I decided to create this blog only about beading, but really there's so much more to me than that, so time to make this blog more personal. ;)

This spring I announced we were waiting for our cute and adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She a girl (bitch) named Alba, she is still fantastic and she has brightened all out days. If that wasn't enough another family had a two year old dog, they couldn't keep, also a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, from the same breeder as Alba. We took him in, and he is fantastic. Not very trained, but he has a great personality, loving and super sweet. Sometimes when I am beading or sitting at the computer, he will out his head on my arm or chest, he want's a hug, when he does that. Yeah a hug,  I have never met a dog who actually wanted hugs, but he loves it. His name is Kalle by the way.

Here they are playing catch in out garden.


What else has been taking my time, well summer. Three whole weeks with my husband at home. We have been together since I was 16, so 13 years this October and he has never had vacation for three continues weeks before. That was sooo nice. 

The first week: Just at home making small improvements to the house and garden, you know those little things that takes 10 minutes, but it takes weeks before you get it done? Know that huh?

The second week we rented a car (yes, we don't have a car, by choice) we went to Germany for the first time (some things like Pepsi, candy, dog food and such is cheaper there) We also vent to something called Egeskov castle, amazing experience, even out son was blown away. 

They had a rather impressive collection of old cars, planes and well close to everything, my husband Mikael really like it, Milan my son too, I was in a hurry to get going LOL 


This is one view of the castle, isn't it breathtaking?



 Yet another view, and with Mikael and Milan in the picture too. We were also in side the castle, but my camera couldn't really take any great pictures ind there, hard to capture the gold, and all the different kinds of fabrics, painting and tons of chandeliers. Just like a fairy tale.


Since then Milan have started school. So much info, things to remember and it took us a while to get it all in to a new routine. Thankfully I don't work so we could take our time.

Soon it will me my sons birthday, he will turn 6 and yet again I am thinking, were on earth did the time go, how did my baby get so big. 5 years ago he took his first steps and now he is reading his first words. I can not understand it. ;) Maybe I am not suppose to. It still bugles my mind. But I am so lucky to be alive to see him grow older. 

I nearly died two times before he was 4 months old and I have been away a lot because I was sick, and all that caused my P.T.S.D. to flare up. But I am slowly getting better. But I am so still not great with stress and changes, but I am getting better. The hardest thing for me is other people, sounds odd yeah, but I get stressed out easily so sometimes I need to shot some people out of my life to keep my self sane. ;) 
That's okay, why waste time on someone who does nothing good for you anyway? ;) 

Oh I almost forgot. Pinterest...! Yeah it has gotten to me, bad! I am pinning almost everyday. I keep finding neat projects, ideas and such so you'll probably see more things from me, other than beading that is ;) 

We have a lot of pine cones dropping in our garden I am looking for different ideas for this Christmas I have to use them all!! LOL This is all I got this year, usually I get a lot more, but this will do.


Well this is it for me this time.. I'll upload the latest jewelry one of these days ;)
