How I spent my summer vacation

Hi everybody,
It took quite a while to make the transition from spending my days at the bookstore to realizing that there was a life outside those walls, but things have finally started to fall into place. I had some time on my hands this summer to prepare for the fall craft shows. Making my" little people" sculptures was fun, but my heart wasn't in it anymore. I had just read a book on how to age gracefully and the author emphasized that really cool jewelry was the way to make all of your old clothes look like new clothes. Not having any cool jewelry was a problem. Since I have never been a person who could comfortably go out and spend on a whim, I took out my polymer clay purchased to make sculptures and started to play around with bead making. Here are some of the results.
