It has been awhile since I shared some lovely beads… My current project is using these lovely olive pearls from my favorite online bead store- artbeads.com:
I LOVE this color and I can’t wait to use them in a project! It looks very rich in person, too. In case you wanted a strand for yourself, I found the Olive Pearls here.
ArtBeads also have other pearl colors, and even a few mixtures. How many other bead lovers are out there? LOL!
My new philosophy: Do something creative each day. Today I quilted, and spent time designing with my bead stash. What did YOU do creative today? C’mon, I really want to know!
Postscript: OK, I followed my own recommendation and did some retail therapy again at artbeads. I promise to share when it comes.
See you on Monday. Another trip to Tahoe- which is less than an hour away from Feathered Fibers Central. I will take pictures to share… it is a beautiful location. Take care, Carla
Does doing my monthly financial statement count as creative? LOL!
No way, Vicki! Quick! Go find some beads and run your hands in them. I promise you will feel better.
LOL Btw, when I was doing my photo shoot, I did take a shot of the pearls draped on your handmade soap and a sea sponge. LOL
Beautiful pearls, and also a very nice feather design in the other post!
I was very creative today, I am working on a pictorial quilt on Yellowstone and finished a block of the Canyon. I really went crazy with surface embellishment there, very unsual for me, but it was the only way I could reach the texture I wanted in the block.
Now I hope you really wanted to know, thanks for asking anyway 🙂
Beatrice in Germany
I volunteered to do all the desserts for a baby girl shower this weekend… I am attempting to decorate one of the deserts with fondant..she wanted an array of desserts… have you ever noticed.. dessert spelled backward is STRESSED… LOL
Beatrice and Faith, YES, I wanted to know what you are up to! I love it when you post a comment and give me feedback. LOL
Creative every day, hmm, I fiddled with my wholecloth design still playing to get the final Ahhhh in my mind….
Enjoy your weekend, I am sure you will do just fine…. Love the olive beads but then whats not to love that is olive green LOL….
I don’t think moving counts as creative, in any way, so I think I have to say I didn’t manage that today.
Sad but true.
I created a new friend yesterday though!
Sorry, that read weird, I co-created a new friendSHIP yesterday…better.
Thakyou for your lovely comment and this is the magazine that i used to make my bracelet…(Bead and Button, June2006 Issue 73) see How you go and if you can’t find it then i am more than happy to email you a copy of the pattern.)’
Today creative, I did some gardening, took some photo’s and made a pair of earring for a friend….
And i am 100% bead freak mad, and i know quite a few ladies who share the passion, and yes I love the pearls very much………………..
Hoe your weekend was filled with plenty of sunshine.
