As far as I am concerned...May is over!

Phhhheeewwwww....That was one busy month! I am glad it is almost over! Now I can create again. Today, was that last big event of May. Our annual golf tournament. This year our charity was Candlelighters for Childhood Cancer. We will have the final numbers by the end of next week, but I think we raised over $25,000 dollars. It is always so stressful organizing it all but it is worth it in the end when we raise that kind of money for a worthy cause. After the tournament today, Jen and I headed down to the bead show that was in town and picked up some goodies. Both Jen and I were drawn to these big round faceted beads. They are the size of cherries. I have no idea what I will do with them yet, but I couldn't help myself.My next favorite find was these:
I just loved the color! I have been very drawn to ocean colors. Maybe it's because I am going to Art & Soul this October and the theme is by the sea, or maybe it's that I am wishing I was back on that Gullet in the Aegean Sea! I may have to make another trip out to the bead show tomorrow, as I found out that it is multiple hotels and I only hit one of them! We will see.

Love the colors of your beads. The stress of organizing events like that seem to pay off in the end. As it sounds like it was a big success. Congrats.
