Like Mother, Like Daughter
There are 3 beads about 1" each, and then they are spaced with 1/2" metallite beads. It's on beading wire with a lobster claw clasp. It looks so cute on her. She's very proud of herself, and so am I. Here's Sara's project....
The second thing I wanted to show you today is my newly acquired super duper Photoshop skills. I thought I was pretty good at adjusting photos before, but now I am like a pro! Thanks so much to Robin Atkins for spending an hour or so with me on the phone going through bunches and bunches of steps and settings. I had to learn to edit my photos really really good for the step by step photos for the new book. Here is an example of the drastic change I am now able to accomplish. The first pic is the photo as it was taken in its original form.
Teaching a small group of ladies tomorrow how to make a bracelet (and of course Sara will be there, too). That should be fun!
Ok, kids. Wanted to pop in to let you all know I'm still here and haven't forgotten any of you. I've been super busy trying to make pieces for the book, write instructions, get lessons in writing instructions, having the instructions tested, taking photos and editing photos. phew. No wonder I'm tired! But it's a good kind of tired.
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
