Just in the "Maroon" of Time!

Over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Maroon.  I couldn't wait for this weeks inchie.  I had to think real hard over this one, my first thought had nothing to do with the color maroon, but rather the band maroon 5.  Well, I figured everyone might be thinking the same thing as I was so I racked my brain for a different direction.  But I still came back to the same idea.  Maroon 5.  (kinda think Adam Levine is a cutie) So here is my inchie, with a AB pearl background and an opaque matte red number 5, which is the closest color I had to the color Maroon. 

Hope you like it and for all of you who are in the States, I wish you a happy 4th of July.  I will be working on the 4th, but for the rest of you I hope you get to spend time with family, cook out and enjoy the fireworks.  Don't forget to give thanks to those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.  God bless America.

"Maid" it Just in Time

Do you remember me telling you that I (almost) always go with my first thought on a theme?  Well, sometimes it is the 15th thought that I go with LOL.  This weeks theme over at Evey Inchie Monday is Maid. 

So many ideas in my head.  A feather duster; ummm.... not in beads, thank you very much!  Then I think about the black and white clothes that maids wear....  again.... not in beads!  Then I had to try to figure out what is the one thing that all maids have in common.  Whether it is our Mom, the hotel maid or housekeeping in a hospital, what is the one thing that they have in common?  Cleaning supplies!!!!  Bingo!!! There is the inspiration!  So there it is,  and here it is!  Two bottles of cleaning supplies for the well prepared maid. 

Hope you like it.  I adore the colors on this inchie.  The inchie has 6 colors, and I love the purple in this one.  It is hard to see it but it is sparklie.  YAY sparklies!! LOL

Lavender Inchie Love

 This week's theme over at Every Inchie Monday is Lavender.  You ever have one of those times when you and creativity don't get along?  Kinda like a married couple who have a fight and don't speak to one another?  Well, that was me this week.  Creativity and me seemed to have a disagreement and creativity left for work and didn't even say goodbye!  LOL

That all being said, this last week has been another long one.  I put in another 1500 miles of driving!  Which is why this post is late.  I got home on Sunday night and was way too tired to do my inchie.

I tried to think of what to design.  I thought about lavender flowers but each design I did just didn't look right.  It was not until I saw other artists designs that I thought about a sachet.  I never even thought about that!  Since I am sensitive to strong smells (because of my allergy related asthma)I don't use sachets or candles of any kind.  So that would have never came to my mind.

This is what I came up with, a color block pattern.  Now, if I had been smart I might have said it was a bar of soap but even that didn't come to me until I started to type the blog, LOL.  Blame it on me being tired!  Lets hope that next week me and creativity will make up and be friends again. 

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the awesome artwork from all these talented ladies.

Legal Ease

Guess what I got to do this weekend?  I got to drive over 1300 miles in 3 days!  Yes, I know what you are thinking,  "Why is it that I get all the fun?"  My answer.  Cuz I am wild and crazy gal!  LOL  Really what I had to do was to drive to Hot springs twice and to Memphis once.  YAY!

Now back to the fun stuff, over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Legal.  Well, last week I accidentally did this weeks inchie.  So last weeks and this weeks are switched on my beaded strip of inchie.  (Really isn't the first time & prolly wont be the last time!)

When I saw this theme I was tickled.  I have always loved legal dramas.  Perry Mason, Matlock, Law and Order and now one of my newest legal faves; Suits!

For my inchie I designed the scales of justice and I  used two colors of Delicas.   A pale white for the background and one of my fav colors, (I am not just saying that because I have boukous of this one bead) for the scales of justice. 

It is a simple design but I like how it looks.   It is not fully on the inchie.  It gives you the assumption of the scales.  Hope you like it.

It's A Khaki Attacki!!!!!

Yea, Yea, Yea, I can tell your eyes all rolled with that!  LOL  it is late and I am tired and sore, so I will use that as my excuse. 

I am running late with this weeks post because I have hurt my shoulder at work last week.  I am not supposed to use my right arm and shoulder at all.  Which makes beading very hard to do one handed!  So forgive me for being late.  :(

First off, I had to show this. I just got some beads recently, they are called 2-hole lentils    I am using these to make earrings for my first craft fair!  But this one I just had to keep, you see the line on it is not supposed to be there!  So this one looks like a lil face, LOL. 

I know, I know, not all of you are beady like me but I just love it when beads come out bad!  HAHA.  When I get time I will start taking pics of the jewelry for the craft fair.  But now I have just been building my stock without adding the earring hooks and clasps on the bracelets; so I can do all of that in the end.  Even at the fair if needed. 

This weeks theme over at Every Inchie Monday is Khaki.  I kinda struggled with this one, I thought about doing just a color block, but I have done that more than a few times in the past.  LOL  Sometime creativity is just not my friend LOL.  But I really wanted something different.  Then I was thinking that since the supervisors at work have to wear khaki colored clothes I decided to do khaki pants.  (No matter what I do, work always seems to follow me!  LOL)

This one is nothing to special, just a pair of pants but i like it.   I used 3 colors of Matte beads.  Black, light khaki and a darker khaki color.  Getting the outline to the pockets was not smooth but I still like it alot.
