Tomorrow I'm off for two weeks, going to Hungary to visit my parents, and then we all go to Romania (that's where I'm originally from) to visit our relatives whom I last saw over 14 years ago, when I was last in the country. I'm looking forward to the trip but also am worried about a few things. My grandmom is very ill, most probably on her deathbead, so I'm just hoping to get there on time to say goodbye before she leaves this world.
The weather is very cold over there, and I don't have enough warm clothes (since in Cyprus you don't need really warm clothes anyway), so I'm dreading this a bit as well.
I won't have access to the internet during this time, so I'm going to miss my online friends and jewelry making and book reading/trading forums that I usually frequent.
I'll take the camera with me and hope to get some nice pictures to post when I'm back end of January.
In the meantime, here is a quick bracelet I made two days ago, red agate and yellow-green turquise with sterling silver. I quite like it, it was fun and relatively fast to make - compared to the big pendants I was busy making during the last few weeks.
