I am excited for the final move...which is this coming weekend. But, I still have tons to pack so I really have to get moving!!!! Hopefully I can get back into my craftiness after that.
Of course, there is still the matter of getting my craft area set up. I claimed the extra room as my craft area and started loading all my beads on the shelves. I'll definitely need a couple book shelves and I plan to get my supplies more organized.
In the meantime, I am enjoying finding stuff that were previoiusly hidden away, like my latch hook WIPs and hidden stashes of cloth. But most of all, I was delighted to find my rock collection. I have been collecting pretty rocks the past few years from beaches I frequent during summer times here in the Philippines (like Puerto Gallera).
These ones were from my most recent trip to Puerto Gallera in Mindoro, Philippines. Here they are all dry and unpolished. I picked out a few to highlight.
I washed them off and took a picture of them wet so you can get an idea what they would look like once they are hand polished.

See the amazing white stone that's shaped like a tooth? It was naturally shaped by mother nature!
Do any of you out there know how I can identify if any of these are semiprecious stones?
I can't wait to get started on these beauties! Dreaming of crafty days....
