Dah da-da daaah! Drum roll, please. Today is my 20th wedding anniversary!!! Well, technically it's OUR 20th wedding anniversary, but my husband doesn't really participate in this blog, so I can just say it' mine. 20 years. I can hardly believe it. Sometimes it seems like we've been together forever, and sometimes it seems like it's gone by in the blink of an eye.

To celebrate, I'm cooking. That's not high on my list of favorite things to do, but right now the love of my life is sick with a bad cold; so there's a big, juicy prime rib roasting in the oven. It smells soooooooo good. I hope it tastes as good as it smells. Along with that, we'll have spinach salad and a baked sweet potato. Yum yum.

Since my husband didn't want to pass along his cold to any friends or relatives over the holidays, we stayed at home and watched movies. Actually, he watched movies and I listened to them (and glanced up occasionally if something sounded particularly interesting) while I did some new beadweaving. I've just listed these two new bracelets in my Etsy shop.

This one is called Icicles. All those fringes remind me of the ice dripping off the edge of a roof.

I couldn't come up with a very creative name for this one, so it's just called Black and Silver Ruffles. This stitch (Oglala) is such fun to do that I just keep making bracelets and necklaces in this style. It's a very easy stitch, but the result looks complicated and fabulous!

I did more beadweaving than that, but those are the only two pieces I've managed to photograph so far.

Now I'm off to check that prime rib...
