Echo Creative Club

Another month gone by ~ 
so fast.

Just like I did last month, I asked Jeannie to surprise me
with her choice of beads. 
(best part of the deal, makes me work
outside of the box.)

She sent me some of her peeled paint beads in 
I am not going to lie, I was at a loss for what to create. 
I wanted to make a bracelet, but no matter
how hard I tried, nothing seemed to work.

I was continually drawn to some of the vintage crosses that
my sister in law gave me to create with, the simple gold one
in particular.

As you know, I love, love wire wrapping
and thus this was born.

Her beads lent themselves to this piece
so gracefully.

I know that it sparkles, and for some, that might
be too much.

It hangs so wonderfully!

Thank you so much Jeannie, for this opportunity to 
play in the big leagues. 

Please swing by her blog and see her wonderfulness. And
when you are done, please visit all wonderful blogs
below to see what everyone else has created.

For a wonderfully productive weekend.

Most can be found here

For my family.

For my husband, the love of my life.

For I am loved unconditionally.

When I start to go down THAT road and complain or
feel sorry for myself, 
I have to stop and take a long, hard look around. 
For I am so very lucky, 
and for that,

I am grateful. 

What are you grateful for on this Monday night?

How's your soup coming along?

Just a gander at what is sitting on my table. 
This particular list of ingredients is giving me
such a hard time, can't quite figure out how to
mix it all together to come up with something
But, I will not be discouraged,
in fact, think I may have had a stroke of 

Hope your soup's are simmering
