I'm Playing Granny This Week

I knew there was a reason I had my children when I was young.  There's no way I would have kept up with them if I'd waited until I was older.  Grandchildren are wonderful but I sure am glad their parents are here to take care of them!  Granny is just too worn out to keep up with a toddler AND take care of a newborn.  I did it when I was young but I'm glad those days are behind me!

One side trip on our visit was to a bead store.  Now that's more my speed!  I walked in swearing I wasn't going to spend much money.  That resolution lasted about 5 minutes.  30 minutes and $100 later I walked out with some great new beads.  I've been making Tree of Life pendants out of whatever I had on hand, which wasn't much.  Now I have chips in Aqua Marine, yellow Citrine and pink Agate.  I can't wait to get home to my wire and tools so I can put them together.  I will have a nice selection for the shop this season when I'm finished.

Monday I should have a new PIF giveaway going for you.  I still have to go through my stash, but I have a pretty good idea of what will be in it.  Beaders will love it, I promise you.

I'm sure your grandchildren are keeping you even more young!

Bead stores are torturous for us. I can't help but spend tons of money on beads as well!

Agree with you! I keep my 19 month old granddaughter every Monday ... love it! By the end of the day I am totally worn out!
