Well, I thought a weekend off would help me relax and get back on track - it did, but it also didn't!! I am so used to my routine that I think it through my system off. Add into that the daylight savings time change and the remains of Halloween... oh boy, what a weekend!!
My Monster had a project to do over the weekend for school, so that also took up some of our time. He had to create his version of a URBAN community....here is what he came up with!! I am so proud of him!! He has made SO many strides this year so far!!
I did do a little beading, but not to much!! I really think that time away almost always gets you 're-motivated' to create again!! I know I am! I am really excited about starting a new project today!!
What did you do over the weekend?? Anything interesting??
There was a winner announced over the weekend - Norma T. - make sure you respond to the messages within the 48 hours or another winner will be chosen!! We'll do it again soon!!
On Saturday morning I finished and listed my last project, so I thought I would show it off to those who may not have been watching over the weekend!! I just love this one!! It is part of my October/November Prima Bead creations, too!!
And if you want to watch the 'making of' video, here it is!!
You already saw the 'fish' creation from above, but I want to show you what else I made. On Friday I showed you this set of beads that I was creating with:
Then I also added these beads;
and here is what I created:
And here is what I used to create an amazing bracelet;
But you'll have to come back to see it tomorrow!! ~KM
As I show off a finished project I get to clean up and gather the beads for a new project!! For me, I love the beading, but there is just such a wonderful feeling when this happens. So, here are the new colors, this will be a bracelet. If you want to watch it grow come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day !!
Today's featured artist is: Mamasknittingneedles. This amazing artist has joined with her mother to create some of the most wonderful creations (and also to teach others). I have to tell you that I have done a little felting in my time and these creations are on such a different level from anything I have seen before. The attention to detail - on the corners and in the colors - is simply amazing!! You really must see more from this studio - and find out what they do with buttons....you really have to see it to believe it!! And remember, always support handmade artists, they create out of love!
Today I would like to leave you with this thought;
It is almost impossible to smile on the outside without feeling better on the inside.
So, SMILE! ~KM
