Bead Work

The last few days have been a rainy mess. Which of course has us feeling a little bit cooped up over here, and while the "big" kids are pretty good at coming up with their own cabin fever remedies, sometimes it doesn't hurt to have them siddle up to the dining room table....



With a big box of beads....



To make a pair of earrings...



From start to finish....



All on their own....



And then make a couple more....



I was in awe just watching them as they manipulated the tools and designed their creations.



Sidhe wanted to wear hers right away.



And Micah, well, he was in bead heaven. He probably made the most earrings out of the group.



They've already made some more today with plans of reopening their little sidewalk store front, "The Three Sisters" someday soon.

That looks like fun! I always wanted to try making my own jewelry. They look like pros!
