Stuff and My New Favorite Necklace in the Whole Wide World

Sorry for the long breaks between posts.  Sometimes life gets in the way of doing stuff we want to do.  I have been having some personal security issues lately.  First, my hotmail account gets hacked at like 3 in the morning.  Said hacker decides to send everyone that I have ever emailed from that account spam mail for Cialis and Viagra.  My husband thought it was kinda funny; my mother-in-law, not so much.  So I had to change my password to something long and complicated with random capitalization and punctuation.  Then, my paypal account got hacked into at like 4 in the morning and the person made a purchase using my account.  The kicker was they signed up for an online back-up service for files and the log in and email was sent to my email address.  The one that is attached to my paypal account.  Moron.  So, I had to dispute that and make a different long, complicated password for that.  And finally, someone tried to break into my house.  Seriously?  What is wrong with people?  They didn't get in, but they did break a window and let a lizard in. 

Moving on from random thieves, I wanted to show these beads when they came in the mail, but could not wait to string them into something pretty.  I heart this necklace so much, I wish it was October already so that I could wear it.  The pendant, crow bead and pumkins all came from Kylie Parry and I love them.  

I put them on some rust colored waxed linen and had no idea how to finish it off.  I improvised, but it seems to be holding so far.

Anyway, I think that my bead soup will be arriving today, cross my fingers.  I can't wait to see what everyone else made!  Have a good week.


  1. Oh my goodness Steph. I'm so sorry for all the violations you've been dealt. I've had two of the 3 happen to me and understand the frustration and violation. I give you tons of credit for turning to a new chapter and creating such an inspired necklace. Heck, don't wait for October... wear it loud, wear it proud... RIGHT NOW! Because you deserve it.

    Sending good vibes your way for much, much better days!

  2. Oh my goodness. Well they say that everything happens in 3s so now things have to get better.

    And there is NO way I would be waiting until October. Hmmm...that reminds me. I need to get a Samhain costume.
