Seasons Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Seasons Bog Hop, hosted by Lisa of Pine Ridge Treasures!

She puts together bead kits for us to purchase and then we create a piece of jewelry which represents a season. Either a season of the year or a season in our life. I immediately signed up, sent her my money and waited anxiously for it to come in the mail.

Here's what I got:

How did she know blue is totally my fave color?! 

Alas, life got in the way. I twisted my ankle back in February, and after having some serious pains in it for about three months, I finally went to the doctor and he told me I tore my posterior tibial tendon. I'm having surgery next Friday. I've been in a wheelchair since before Memorial Day and I've just about had it with the whole situation.  The reason I'm telling you this is because I only got one pair of earrings made. Everything but the headpins came from the kit.

They totally say beachy summery to me. I just got back from vacation in Maine and they remind me of the blue sky and blue, blue water on the coast where my boyfriend's parents live, and the rocky coastline. I wear these earrings all the time - they're my "everyday" earrings. By the way, dealing with a wheelchair while traveling is no good. I don't recommend it. Every airport was accommodating except JFK. It was such a mess there, I felt like someone should have been shouting "Candid Camera" at me.

I feel bad I wasn't able to use more of the kit, but I love what I made.

Go check out everyone else's creations. I hope they were able to do more than I was. I'm also participating in Lisa's Challenge of Color Blog Hop and I'm way more prepared for that one...

Here's the list of the other participants.

Happy Summer, all!
