Few new pendant/tile focal beads

I was again whining about my lack of jewelry making skills because of my upcoming show in a month. Wisely, Kathi said "why don't you concentrate on your focal beads?" What a smart's what happened after that conversation :o)

Ft Lauderdale is fab :o)

What a beautiful city. We had a wonderful time even though it was crazy humid. Rudy and Evan got soaked playing golf, but other than that, it was sunny most of the time...but soooo hot! We couldn't spend much time walking around and shopping, so Rudy spent way too much time driving. The first day we went to Everglades for an airboat ride...very fun and educational. We also took boat tours of Fort Lauderdale and Miami, went to the beach at Lauderdale by the Sea. We wanted to try deep sea fishing and wave runner/jet ski, but the day that we picked to do that, the water was very choppy and rip tides made even going to the beach dangerous. All in all it was wonderful and very different for us. The boys seemed to enjoy themselves although they didn't get to really have any crazy fun, it was more of a sight-seeing trip. We're sooo happy to be home safe and sound, especially since the scary stuff with the flights all started the day before we flew out...but we had watched the news, so we checked all of our liquids. Oh, and Weston (we stayed at Weston Village) which is just west of Ft Lauderdale is so beautiful and clean. I took a ton of pics, so I'll just pick the best ones to show you here... ooops, no time now, will post more tomorrow or tonight if possible. Hugs all...~ru

vacation tomorrow...offline mostly

Hey ya'll...heading to Florida in the AM. I think we're bringing the laptop, so I might be around a bit here and there. Hope those going to Ravensdale have a wonderful time, take lots of pictures and tell us all about it when you get back! I'm adding a couple of pics of the boyz playing in the deluge we had a few days ago...hugs all.
