My idea of a good New Year's Eve celebration this year was to make my way home after a week away with friends; unpack my bags and tuck myself in for an early night. I did wake with the fireworks at midnight for long enough to calm my dogs before going back to sleep.
Earlier in the day I made myself these:
They're made on tigertail--just a loop threaded with silver-lined seed beads plus the feature bead in the middle. Light as a feather, bright and easy to wear. So I had my personal sparkles for the occasion even though I didn't have the energy for much in the way of partying.
