1st day of Preschool

Today Cana started Preshool.  I wasn't sure how it would go because she is VERY shy and almost melts when someone she doesn't know talks to her.  This morning she was so brave, I was so proud of her.  She went in the room, got her "mail", hung up her bookbag and started playing.  I had to beg for a hug, in fear she would miss some of her "play kitchen" time.  Can't wait to pick her up in a few hours and hear all about it!

A couple new capped beads I think you will like (or hope you do)  I made some clear hollow beads and filled them with some glitters.  Having been a preschool teacher for a few years, the one thing I would avoid at all costs is glitter.  I would substitute for something else, or not do the craft all together if it called for glitter.   I REALLY don't like it, so I hope you can really appreciate the work I put into this second bead, knowing how I feel about glitter.  I think they are pretty cool.




I am extending the little sale I mentioned before until tonight.  I added several new products over the weekend and am offering a 10% sale.  Use the word "august" to save.  

Have a great Monday!

Those beautiful little girls! It must have been an emotional morning for you as well.
The new beads are very fun and playful...and I know what you mean about glitter...it gets into everything!

Oooo, the beads remind me of little candies and little precious works of art!

I was just thinking...they would make beautiful little Christmas ornaments...if made a little larger. I love they way you capped them Melissa. The mixed metal is really pretty!
