When life gives you lemons....

make jewelry. Wait! That doesn't quite sound right, but that's what we did!

Last night we were suppose to have our first project night at JB's house for our church's Christmas sale. Not one person showed up.

The solution: We made some jewelry for able mabel and feasted on fresh strawberry shortcake! (I told you she wields a mean whisk and rolling pin!) We started with pieces that would match our summer wardrobes. That way if they don't sell, we can wear them. (we're smarter than we look!) As we were madly stringing beads, I told JB that it felt good to get the "able mabel hunch" going again. It's been a while since we've made anything for able mabel.

Today I got two of them photographed before I ran out of camera battery. I'm still doing the ole hem-and-haw about using JB to model them or not. She has a graceful neck ;) so that's not the issue...

strawberry shortcake and jewelery...can life get any sweeter?
Your colours flow beautifully :)
I understand the wondering on the modeling, I have been debating this myself.
