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!

In The Pink

Using some silver accents and my Bead Spinner, this is what I created.

Pink seed bead necklace

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 … ;-)!
