About a month and a half ago I went to Los Angeles with some friends. We went to Universal Studios and Disneyland – had a BLAST!!!! The trip was rejuvenating and so much fun. Disneyland brings out the kid in everyone. It was nice to forget about the day-to-day and play … and eat … and play … and eat … and play … and – you get the idea.
This trip also served as a reminder of one of my favorite quotes by Brendan Gill.
Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious.
Besides my mouse ears, I bought one souvenir – a pink and lavender Minnie Mouse coffee mug. Since I have been back it’s like I only have one coffee mug in the house.
One morning while drinking coffee (in my new favorite mug) and digging through my stash, my eyes fell upon 2 tubes of pink and lavender seed beads and a strand of lavender glass beads. They match my mug perfectly!
Using some silver accents and my Bead Spinner, this is what I created.
I’m quite happy with this necklace. This is going to be the first piece I put up in my Etsy store.
Stay tuned for more details … ;-)!
