More Beading Fun And Time For Another Class!

October has dropped in with a bang! 
(Oh, where did September go??!!) 

I've got a ton of things on my bead table this month!
(Fun things - yippee!)
I'm going to have a few posts over the next week or so to tell you about some of them but today I want to tell you about "My Bead Table Blog Hop" sponsored by Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures that's going to be taking place on October 13th.  
Check out the lovely (and huge!!) stash of beads that Lisa so graciously sent for the blog hop.  
Ohhh,...just look at all these lovely goodies!! Thank you Lisa!!
Other than a few things here, these are beads and components that I don't regularly carry in my bead stash and so the challenge is definitely on for me! 

I'm excited because I love that this will challenge me to step outside my comfort zone and the colors Lisa's given me to start with (we can add from our own stash, too!) are ones I find really pleasing to work with!

Be sure to hop back over here on Saturday the 13th and see what all the participants have created (me included)!
I also wanted to let you know that I'm teaching another class over at Creative U in Carefree next week, too.
Come join me on Friday, the 12th of October
at 2:00p.m. for the
It still shows up on their calendar as Jen Hanscom teaching the class but I'm helping them out this month, so come on over and join in the fun with me, won't you?!
There's never a dull moment at Creative U - trust me!
Well, maybe Lasso gets a bit bored at times, but we sure don't!!
Oh, and on a side note, I
 think I've finally gotten over the jet-lag from my trip.
I was fortunate enough to go to Italy in September!

I really thought I had my body fooled with setting my watch (and my brain) to whatever local time I was headed to but although it truly did help a bit, I still was kind of out of it from last Thursday until this Monday. 

Now I think a form of normalcy and a routine of some sorts is setting back in. Thank goodness, because the 3:30a.m. wake up calls my brain kept giving my body every morning was getting a bit old!
What have you got cooking for October? 
Are you in the Autumn mood?
Dreaming of Autumn!
Are you decorating and creating things and making goodies for Halloween and all the other Holidays that are coming up?
Be sure to drop me a line and let me know what's going on!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and The October Rush!


  1. Wow, you sure did get a treasure trove of goodies. And not a pearl in sight! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  2. I certainly wish I would have known about your hop beforehand-I would have 'hopped' right on in the fun! ^.^

    Although it's probably a good thing since I definitely need to catch up on MANY things!

    It sounds like you've got quite a busy month ahead teaching classes and participating in hops and whatnot.

    Definitely can't wait to see what other fun things you have in store! ^.^

  3. Thanks, Shel for the nice write up about the blog hop! Guess I was a little evil in not giving you any pearls - but I wanted to get everybody out of the comfort zone. Can't wait to see what you make!

  4. Oh, I love that pile of goodies! I think I only have one challenge for October. Strange for me, since I'm usually up to my eyeballs in challenges. Think I post some book reviews, since I'm waayy overdue!
