“Mama Mia, here I go again…”
Go see it! I went yesterday and laughed, cried, sang along, and felt on top of the world when I left. Those of you who know me know I’m not a movie buff. Usually it’s just a matter of not being able to stay away due to boredom. But this movie is such a feel-good happy movie, I think I could watch it every day. And I just downloaded the soundtrack to listen to while I make beads. There’s something about the musicals that just makes me feel so happy inside.
On another feel-good note, I’ve recently been invited to be a member of the Beadbloggers, which is a highly creative group of beaders, who also keep creatively-fueled bead-related blogs. Once a week they each make a blog post with links to all of the group-members’ blogs, so that all of you in blog land can see what fun things they’re all up to. It’s a fun way to see what other people in the bead world are up to, and to keep up with the beading times! I love perusing the links, and was quite honored to receieve the invitation, so of course I accepted.
So without further ado, I present to you this week’s dose of Beadbloggers Linky Love. Peruse, click away, get lost in the wonderful world of beading blogging goodness. Enjoy!

Strands of Beads
Melissa’s making more memento mori (alliterative, eh?) in the studio this week.
And now I’m off to the torch again. Of course I should have gotten up early and made beads when it was nice and cool. But because I do things the hard way, I’ve waited for the sun to come out and warm things up nicely, and now I’m sitting down at the torch!
But I think there’s some icecream in my near future, which should help break the heat. Finn’s birthday is Tuesday, and I’m planning on making Blueberry Icecream cake this afternoon for the party…all homemade. There’s a link to the icecream part of the recipe for you, if it looks good to you too! Look at that color
With blueberry icecream, Finn can have some too (no chocolate, and he loves fruit- takes after his mother, I guess!) And no, I’m not kidding. Homemade icream cake for the dog’s birthday is a completely normal occurance around here. If you believe in reincarnation, you should consider coming back as a dog in the Seibels family….we treat ‘em pretty good around here!
