Happy Veterans Day! A very special one, 11-11-11. A once in a life time occurrence. I'm one of those people who is always looking up and seeing elevens on the clock. Does that happen to everyone?

Thank you to all the troops who are serving and have served in the past. Especially to my wonderful husband who has been sick all week with a bad cold. Poor guy. He was just out of the military when we met. A hot young tough guy who was all muscle (after jumping out of airplanes with heavy equipment strapped to his back, Robert was Airborne in the Army). He was camping at a park that was across the street from the little cabin where I was living in Haines. Needless to say I was impressed and that was 25 years ago. Yikes where does the time go...

So here's how the sand came out. Mixed all the colors together and then I attached them two or three beads at a time. I tried to be random but I ended up choosing the colors, just couldn't let it be. I like it but will probably try something different on the next piece. If any of you know a good source for sand colored beads or dirty water colored beads, let me know!
On another subject, the audit went fine, I was really nervous, the man was official but nice and it looks like I'm doing okay with my bookkeeping.  Kate's Gallery will be opening up in the spring and things will be business as usual. Whew...
