Vacation is fun, but it's good to be back home were I can create. I took some art materials with me on my trip but it's hard to find time to be creative with that much going on around me. I've managed to create a few pieces of jewelry since I've been back, but the bulk of my time has been spent working on a huge mosaic project that I'm doing for my sister and her husband. I'll post pictures of it when I'm done but I want the final piece to be a surprise.
Here is one of the necklaces that I've completed:
Also, before I left for my trip I was given this award by the wonderful Steph of Vladthebatsattic. I'm so excited! It's my first award. Here are the rules for this award:1.

Leave a message on the blogs you've nominated.6. Write an acceptance speech in the style of the Academy Awards, thanking every body's mother, father, sister, brother, aunties and uncles and the kitchen staff at your favorite restaurant!
So....I want to thank Step for nominating me for this award and for her encouraging comments that she always leaves, and all of the other people that visit and leave comments, and even the ones that just stop by and have a look. Most of all, I want to thank my Dear Hubby who allows me the freedom to stay at home and do what I do, and always encourages me, and is my best critic.
