Today is another on of those great - BEADING days!! I know that many of you don't see much of what 'else' I do, but I actually DO have a life outside of Beads!! I often cook - and love to cook for parties!! Over the weekend we had a dear friend and her son come over for a movie night and I cooked handmade hamburgeres, edviled eggs, handmade quacomolie and all the 'fixings'!! For desert we had popcorn and oranges ( a movie MUST)!! I know this is a bit of a mess, but I always forget to take photos!! It was a VERY good meal and even better company!!
When I went to the last bead show I found these great MATTE finished crackle beads. I wasn't sure what I was going to make at the time (unusual for me) but I just had to buy them!! I ended up pairing them with these gold plated hearts and I think I have a 'winner'!! What do you think?
Many have guessed, but none have gotten it yet!! What is this logo for? What will I use it for? It is going to be something for a MAN!! Yep, something that beadweaving will go on - that primaraly a MAN would use (ops, were those hints?)!! Come on over and watch the creation grow on my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day!!
So, want to see more creations from the 'Tis the Season' collection of supples that I received as being part of the Prima Bead Blog Team. Well, here are a couple more....
A simple to assemble necklace!
Tomorrow I'll show you some NON jewelry items I created!!! AND, I have decided what I am going to do with all these creations I have made....I'm going to give them away!!! Keep watching for more 'suppies' as give-a-ways and also the finished creations!!
Talk about give-a-ways, have you entered this one?? Remember, you can come back everyday and do a 'tweet' to gain more entry points.... there is only a few days left, so hurry on over!!
Todays featured artist is: thesassycrafter. This amazing artist is like many of us, her grandmother passed on the love of crafts!! From about age 5 this great crafter has crocheted, crafted and created bits of sunshine for all of us to view! You really should go look through this great studio, there is something for everyone! And remember to always support handmade artists!!
Today I would like to leave you with this thought;
Resolve to be tender with the young
compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and
tolerant with the weak and the wrong.
Sometime in your life
you will have been all of these.
