12 Frivolous Friday 4/11/14 (Krafty Max in person, Teal Earrings and a 5 Prizes)


Today I will be beading, relaxing and getting ready for teaching tonight.  Yep, wonderful day! It is funny, but I have been really focused lately on my business and creations....I always am, but a little more lately...I am ready to MOVE to the next level!!  I hope that I am on track for that...if you know of any recommendation on what more I can do....please, please, feel free to tell me!! :)

Do NOT like photos of myself!  That being said, I have been giving this a LOT of thought!  I am going to show you two photos of myself!!  This is for so many reasons!!  First, because I am always asked to show photos of my....the person behind the creations....and second, as incentive!  YEP, that is right.  Once I post these photos it is 'out there' and I will have to deal with how big I am.  Over the past few years I have really gained a lot of weight and I am now 'really' ready to make a change.  So this is my 'come to the truth' moment....anyone that wants to join me on this journey can post a photo in the comments....I'd love to have company!  Here we go....drum roll please....


Here I am, Krafty Max the creator of Krafty Max Originals!  



Here is a new listing for today.  These simple and FUN earrings ship FREE in the US, so hurry over!!

And although this bracelet is actually one I made for a student I thought I would show it off.  This is what we made this week in my private / advanced classes!!  It is Evelina Palmontova's design from the April/May 2014 Beadwork Magazine. 



And as you have watched, I have been working on the Tree with a Swing strap.  This has been a simple spiral - that is a very time consuming pattern!! I should be able to finish it today....that means I get to list it and start something new....... You come over and to my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day you can watch it grow!!



Here is my Give-A-Way...remember, 5 prizes are up for grabs!! Every couple of days I am also changing the Pinterest photos, so make sure you come back and do your daily entries!!!  And SHARE the give-a-way (you can use this link if you want - http://tinyurl.com/qxqholq ) - you can't win all 5 PRIZES!! :) 



I am still looking for featured artist.....please contact me if you are interested!!!  max@kraftymax.com  


Today I would like to leave you with this thought;

  1. You are beautiful and I love the way you dress. I refuse to allow pics of me to be taken too b/c I cannot stand how much weight I've gained. I have so many friends who are working out, entering marathons and martial arts exhibitions and I'm sitting on my butt making crafts and baking cookies. lol Of course I was a prisoner in my house all winter long but now I hope to get out and walk more.

  3. I think the older we get, the more critical we are of our looks as we get those little wrinkles and put on those extra lbs we really have worked hard for most of our lives to not put on, but they creep up on us anyway. You are beautiful and an amazing person with so much talent and so much cheerfulness...and even though we barely know each other, I think you are all around a wonderful person. I know I hate pictures of myself too. Being short and having lots of curly hair only adds to my roundness which I try so hard to not think about. My hubby does not say a thing about my weight in fact he has always just called me fluffy..LOL (we have been married for almost 32 years now) I guess that really is what matters the most, to be accepted for who you/we are and knowing we are loved no matter what we look like as we age. By the way...LOVE THAT NECKLACE... :-) HUGS...Chris

  4. I also have gained weight in the recent years. But I always try to remember, I am not my weight...I am not my haircolor....I am not anything that is on the outside.

    Stay true to yourself, and remain who you always have been, no matter what size or shape you are now or were....
