Tis the Season!
It has been busy! Each time I sell a beaded item I make something to replace it. Sales have picked up for the holiday season so I have been beading, beading and more beading!!! I just added this sea opal glass and blue lace agate bracelet available at Miss Val's Creations.
This is pure comfort food!!! I covered half a bag of lentils and 1 large chopped potato with a can of vegetable broth and water and cooked these for about 20 minutes until almost ready.
Then I added a large chopped zucchini and a can of chopped tomatoes along with crushed red pepper and red curry powder. At the end I added baby spinach. Mmmmm!
HIV/AIDS Awareness Month
I have sold a couple of these red awareness ribbon lanyards recently not realizing it was HIV/AIDS Awareness Month. It is amazing how far we have come in dealing with this horrible virus. This one I just restocked at Miss Val's Creations.
I remember being a child in the 80’s and everyone panicking about this thinking it was easy to contract the virus. People were afraid to use public restrooms then! Ryan White, the boy with AIDS in Indiana was all over the news. I believe his story was the first time I heard of virus. Obama talked hopefully about this stating that we can now have a new generation of HIV/AIDS free children. Apparently there is a treatment for pregnant women so they do not pass this along to their unborn child. Amazing!
New hair style
It was time to change my hair.
This is a new look for me since I have never had a heavy bang with a short bob before!
Speeding Costs Money!
So I got a speeding ticket this week for going 46MPH in a 30MPH zone! Oops! I am still getting used to my “new” car. That was a lesson learned. I was fortunate enough to have a nice officer who only charged me $50. Jim tells me 1 offense will not affect my insurance premium…I hope so. This is the only speeding ticket I have received in my 20 years of driving!
New Bali Clasps
I will be posting these new Bali sterling silver clasps this weekend! They are beautiful and will be sold in packages of 2.
Have a great week and enjoy getting ready for the upcoming holidays! ~Val
