Today I have so many things to show you, but, before I start I want to say that I am very 'thoughtful' this morning. I remember that just a few weeks ago I talked about school getting back in and the kids getting back into a routine. Yes, that has happened. Yes, the kids are doing great at school, but.... it is strange, this quiet house! I have to tell you that no matter how much I love my quiet beading time, I miss the kids - sometimes!! I am one of those beaders that listens to MANY TV shows, but watches little! I had turned off the TV for a while the other day and after about 30 minutes I realized that it was REALLY quiet in my house!! WOW, when did that happen?? I know that this was a long summer, but did I get THAT used to the 'hustle and bustle'?? I guess I did.
Do you find that you adapt quickly to the sounds, activity and 'craziness' around you??
Today I am listing something simple. This is very basic - but I think it is also beautiful. It would go for a BBQ or with a business suit!!
I worked on this pink bracelet yesterday and everyone seems to love it!! What do you think??? Does it have enough pink on it?? Come on over and watch the creation grow on my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day !!
My FAN of the WEEK was Ms. Julie Lanier Howell. I have moved the 'FAN OF THE WEEK' logo to the side of my blog - I will change the name each week. So, you will get a $10 certificate to my Krafty Max Originals site and also be on my blog for a week!!!
Many of you saw yesterday that I have already received this months supplies....and can I just say WOW!!!! Not only did Prima Beads send us some amazing (and lots) of supplies to work with, but WOW, these are all available for you to buy in your local retail stores!! YES, all of these can be ordered, but many of them are just down the street!!
So, since I received so much I am going to break it up - both in showing off what I received and also in the items I make this month. I will be making some basic creations that any beginner can make and also some more advanced ones. I also plan on doing a give-a-way of some...but that is later in the month!!
Here is the 1st of 5 photos of the supplies..... yes, FIVE!!!! I'll show you more tomorrow...and the next day... and the next day... :)
How many of you have discovered Pintrest?? If you have, and you would like, follow me - then leave me your Pintrest link in the comments and I'll follow you!! Sounds good to me!?!?
Today's featured artist is: DaRosaCreations. This amazing woman has turn a hobby into a real career!! She stared painting just for herself, but when it was time to design the baby's room she did it all on her own. Now, she sells 'everywhere' and even has some items in boutiques!! Her knobs are so beautiful and fun... I am sure you can find some that will match your house in her studio!! Remember, always support handmade artists...they create out of love!
Today, I would like to leave you with this thought;
Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.
