Bead Line Studios on Vacation

I'm going to put everything bead related on hold til late December, including book & DVD sales from my web site. I've got to move all of my stuff to the new house. Then there is Thanksgiving, getting things ready for the trek to Arizona, driving across country, a visit in New Orleans, and getting the Arizona house opened back up. Whew, I'm tired already!

On a side note; I'm in love with the way my bamboo floors turned out in the new house.

I may post in the next month, and I may not. Depends on how the time organization goes.

Enjoy your Holidays.

I'm finally seeing light at the end of this project
*floors going down*

The recycled click-together tiles in the bathroom are looking fantastic. I thought they would work, but until you see something like this in place you can never be quite certain.

I love the bamboo flooring. My Son said the whole effect was "upscale urban townhouse looking" - all of that in a very rural, little ranch house? He is putting the flooring down and threatned to throw me out when I tried to indulge my creative side. I was trying to arrange boards in a pleasing manner. He's right, random is easier and comes out looking just as nice.

Now comes the decision time:
What needs to be done so we can actually move in?
What can wait til next Spring?
I don't want to wait until we're snowed in before heading out for Arizona for the winter.
