Twice Happy & Ginko-licious

Beads – they make you happy twice.

The first is when you get them, play with them, contemplate them, spread them around and think of all the possibilities, and make them into something.

The second time is when you wear them, show off your creation, or just have the quiet satisfaction of having something that perfectly fits your mood or outfit, or when you give it to some else and it makes them happy; and that makes you happy.

I was reminded of these recently when I was talking on the phone to a friend who commented on how much she liked the “hat jewelry” that I made her. I enjoyed making them, but she
reminded me that something I did made her happy, and it was a good feeling all over again.  (BTW – It’s starting to warm up now, so these can transition to brooches to wear on light jackets.)

Anyway – my point is, beads are a source of happiness – and we all can use as much as we can get.
