Well sometimes you should be careful what you wish for. I never imagined that the white and blue cat paw beads that a friend asked for would keep me so busy. It is sort of like a feeding frenzy. I have made over 30 pair of earrings for co-workers and friends. Of course I am not making very much from them, because I had not anticipated such a response and I really do not like to profit from friends. I am not sure if this fever will continue since the local cat team has lost it’s tournament game and that may have played a part in the popularity of the bead. I really am not a big fan but have enjoyed making them for all of the big fans. It did take a toll on the rest of my obligations, like sleep.
