Fireworks in the Desperate ABS Neighborhood

The Art Bead Scene Neighborhood has extended the Fourth of July holiday into the weekend. The Desperate ABS Neighbors never do things like other neighborhoods, they've smuggled in some illegal fireworks and are enjoying them. But I think someone's called the cops!

We know you'd rather have low key fun. So let's not forget the Independence Day Projects, the Poppy Field bracelet and the Spirit of Independence Ornament the Neighbors worked on early in the month with those crazy Ornament Thursday Girls!

When you've finished your Independence Day projects, why not wander out into the Bead Blogging World to see what else is going on..... Jewelry Making
