    Lori, Thanks for sharing these lovely beads. Of course you must know that I am drooling right now–not a pretty sight.

    I find the older I get my obsession with kitty cats grows. Is it okay that I like to watch kitten videos in my spare time? Will buying the little cat bead really put me over the edge? I DON'T CARE, bring on the meows!
