Paper Beads and Such Things

Who knew there was such a thing as paper beads?? :) Girls during the Depression used to make them, as you can use really any paper to make them, and they're quite cute. Molly was given a set of them for Christmas, and also a make it yourself kit, so we have been making paper beads into earrings and such things. I know they sound a little funny and you're probably picturing something silly looking, but they're really quite pretty!!

Today we made North Woods Bean Soup and gumbo with a tomato base. I'm also making some carrot bread to go with it.mmmmmmm! It's supposed to get kind of cold around here again, so we prepared and made all our soup ahead of time, and bread's nothing to make. But a very fun nothing.

Other than that, we've spent our days beading and doing school, and playing on the trampoline! Life is so good!


  1. Hello, this is Abby speaking!
    Gumbo sounds good right about now.
    Speaking of cooking, I made your pound cake recipe the other day and it was soooo good.
    It didn't cook all the way through the middle though so it was kindof gooey(which I like).Yum!
    Hugs and kisses!
