bead hoarders blog hop

Lori Anderson suggested that we have a blog hop for beads that we have hoarded and not used. this was a tough challenge for me since i could not decide which beads of my many millions that i have collected to use.  one after another i took beads out of my stash and said no!  I looked for weeks and then,,,,,,, i realized it was Thursday night  oh no  two days left
What to choose


Decisions decisions and more decisions and more procrastination I finally took the plunge and started
to create.  It had also been an emotional week at work .. im a nurse on an alzheimers unit and one of my favorite residents was not doing well.
Heres what i finally came up with  hope you like it
