The day after, my husband and I even ventured out into the Black Friday shopping frenzy—and if you know us, you know that is NOT something either one of us have ever wanted to try before!! LOL But there were a few things we wanted to pick up if we could and so we drove out to a few stores at 9 am in the morning. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the ones we went to didn't have any of those crazy crowds where everyone is practically foaming at the mouth to get their special deals. We even had time to enjoy a leisurely breakfast at a nearby restaurant to celebrate getting our "finds" so succesfully and relatively stress-free! :-D
Looking ahead to my favorite time of the year, I've also been inspired to make some new Christmas beads. They've been well received on my Facebook fan page and Etsy shop, and I have a few more in the works that I'll be sharing soon!

If you have any suggestions for other color combinations or seasonal designs (including Winter themes) that you would like to see me make, please feel free to email me or leave a comment here any time—I LOVE getting new design challenges! *Ü*
