What's NEW??? Well, there is a new Lisa Wingate book coming out soon!! I am so excited!!! Just look at the cover art....
....this is the 3rd book in a series, but let me tell you, you can read them along just as easy! They are all great books!! You do know that she is my ALL TIME favorite writer, right?!?! Keep a watch out, I'll be doing a review and then a give-a-way as we get closer to the September release....but you can always click on it and PRE-order it now....it will be worth it!! :)
Just look at what I did last night! I was able to work on my strap!! Like it? I just love the way the beads are going together! Remember, you can come over to my Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page were I post 'working' photos throughout the day.
Just look at both of these great creations!! They would be great for spring or summer!
Yesterday I was able to introduce you to Ms. Leeza (Lee-zah) the designer owner of Twisted& Troublesome Friends. Today I get to tell you more about her, and her beautiful creations!!
Like many artist that are self taught she started out with something small and 'easy'. Here is what she says about it; My first piece I named "Thy Slug." It was a yellow sausage type thing with little spikes stuck to it. It broke after I took it out of the oven from baking. And now when I look at her creations I think - how far she has come!!
I think that personally one of the things that draws me the most to her little cuties is their expressions. She has worked really hard to get the 'eyes' just right and then you see the 'tongue' hanging out and it just makes me smile!! I, for one, am so glad that she has kept up her passion and that we get to look at these little creations - and for some of us we are lucky enough to own one!!
Here are a couple of my favorites!!
Remember to go check out her page (and let her know where you heard about her) and watch for future creations!
Today I would like to leave you with this thought;
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. ~Marcel Proust
