Fall is coming, dear readers, and the Desperate Neighbors have been scarce around the neighborhood, working like squirrels to be ready before the snow flies. There has been a little less gossip around the neighborhood because Heather has been locked in her studio making beads,
while Jennifer has stayed away from the martinis (wink) long enough to remodel her studio.
The rest of the Desperate ABS Neighborhood is busy too so let’s nose around in Bead Blogging World to see what else is going on…..
