day 181 ~ on the avenue


While at the show yesterday, I kept myself busy between customers by talking with my son and making another wire tree. At the end of the day, my daughter and I (the children took shifts) gave the tree to the Bellevue Beadery as a thank you for inviting us to participate.

The new trees please pendant line was well received. 

Five pieces were sold, planting ten trees in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil. 
I kicked in another 8 trees for the four pendants my family and I claimed as our own.

Planting trees, what a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning! 
If you'd like to join in on the fun, visit

 Last, but certainly not least, a big thank you to my assistants:

(This was at the beginning of the day. Note the wire cutters, wire and beads on the back of the table, but no wire tree yet.)

  3. I love this wire tree and how far your project is taking you. It has grown in leaps and bounds!

  4. Thanks, Madonna. I'm enjoying the journey. It has been such an interesting ride so far, I can't help but wonder what the next 6 months will bring!
