It's been an exciting week with the mailman bringing me packages. I got another one the other day from Artbeads.com and also Fire Mountain Gems. Got some really scrumptious things in it. What's that? Oh, you'd like to see? Ok, sure! ;)
First, I got the beads for one of my students for my little bracelet making class coming up in a HOLY COW a week. lol Just looked at the calendar. I better not forget. That would be bad. Anyways, I think these beads are just gorgemous together.
Next, these don't come out in the photo too well because they are so pale, but here goes. Blue is a big color this week. I had to try on a few different shades in a few different sizes and types to find the ones I like the best for one of my projects. None of the beads in this pic are going to be used immediately, but they are very pretty and will definitely get used one day. The middle one almost looks white, but it is a very light blue. uh, very light. :)
Ok, so here's the pic of the beads I got based on that dress...
Again, I can't show you my bead work I've been doing because that would ruin the surprise of the book unveiling, wouldn't it? I was told I may get "a few" copies of the book when it's done. If I get more than two don't you think my blog should be screaming for a giveaway? I think so! That's a long ways off yet, but still fun for me to think about.
Ok, kids. Have fun playing this weekend. What's on your bead table???
