I finished!

Posted in Uncategorized on April 13, 2009 by beadnfun

Yipee!  Okay, I’m always enthused when I complete something!  I knew I was capable of following instructions.  So here it is.


Here is a different layout.


The last one looked okay on the camera, but is certainly washed out here.  I’m glad I took more pictures of it today on the wooden table.  I know I have to work on my photo layout skills way more.  But I was excited, I wanted you guys to see it!


So like I said before, this one is the design of Aasia Hamid, from the current issue of Bead and Button Magazine.  Thanks Aasia.  I may have to send them this picture-okay I will try to redo the photo for Bead and Button, but maybe actually get it one of their magazines.  I think I’m ready!

Oh, I realized to by Googling Aasia Hamid that I had done some of her earlier work when she was published before in Bead and Button Magazine. I loved this design and it was one of the first ones that I tried to “redo” or change a little so it was mine.  Though it was all her inspiration.


Once again, forgive the weird background of vinyl and shine in this photo.  But this was what I was talking about.  A peyote band with 15s fringed with drop beads on the bottom centered.  Of course Aasia used really high quality Swarovski briolletes on her work so it is very high quality.  Me I used some basic drops for my designs.  I’ve come along way since those days, though,  I have a few more bulk bead orders on my shelves these days.  Thanks K!

Okay, in parting, how about these two.


Whiskers and Yippers yesterday.  They were the last two kitties he brought from the farm after he moved to town.  They really depended on each other and are mostly fond of each other.  Yippers is a scrapper though sometimes.  They are both squeezed into a little bed!

Thanks C


Almost done.

Okay, so I didn’t work on it as much as I was hoping.  But I certainly made some progress.


See!  So I have about half of the bib to go, and then I’m done.  I’m glad that I have already finished off my closure on this one.  Just one last thing to not half to go back to.  I’ve been working on this one about a month, so ready to do something else.  But I love to do these projects because they are something tangible that you can hold in your hand.

I used to do hours and hours of cross stitch, and this is just a little more satisfying to me.  This stuff you can wear!

Okay, enough already, how about another photo.



Hopefully next time I see you I will be showing you the finished piece.

Talk to you soon

We love you you beautiful girl.  I will miss your headbutting and your playfulness.  But I know that you were needed in another place, and were taken from us so quickly.  I can’t believe what two weeks did for you.


Rest in Peace my sweet and talkative girl.  You were an angel when I arrived at your daddy’s house. My Snuggles.

We both already miss you.


Here you are earlier this year.



sweet nuggies.
