Getting Back in the Swing of Things

I finally got settled in since moving in with Mom.  She gave me two rooms - one for my bedroom and one for a craft studio!  I am feeling spoiled with a whole room dedicated to crafting.  I am calling it my Playroom.

My mother liked it so much, I offered to make a necklace with her pendant.  I just got started on it this morning:
I will probably make several simple short term projects.  They are a lot of fun and I get almost immediate gratification and that often stimulates the creative juices for more complex projects.  

See y'all later, my beads are calling me...
