I'm so very thrilled to get to use my JulsBeads on this project. The colors are awesome. The lovely Betsy at RedPandaBeads helped me pick colors for the project. Some of the ones we picked didn't work once I got them all together, but I think the ones I picked worked beautifully.
I also decided to make a Christmas ornament. I don't usually like beaded ornaments. For some reason, they don't generally appeal to me. However, the one in the new Bead and Button did strike a chord. I am very happy I have used up some of my bead stash on this one. However, the bad thing is, in order to finish it, I need more beads! :) Anyone ever had that problem??
This is the upper portion of it, just starting on the fringe. Why did I chose those colors? Cause that's what I had, of course! That's what you're supposed to do when you're trying to decrease the bead stash, right? Also, the only pearls I could find in 4mm and 6mm were...white.
I think it's just something in the air right now, but there's just so much talent all over the internet right now, it's just inspiring me!!!
In case you were getting worried that the other portion of my blog was getting neglected, I'm making Ezekiel bread tomorrow! I've never had the store bought, but I have been assured by folks that have, that mine is totally awesome compared to it. I think it's pretty yummy, and it's healthy! So there!
