Hello everyone, hope your week was a good one. Last week for me was tough weather-wise. Being this is Arkansas, we get a bit of snow and ice and the ENTIRE state seems to shut down. I was not able to work on Monday and Tuesday, my son did not have school from Monday to Wednesday. There is another front coming in and everybody was rushing to cancel school! My daughter, whose college never cancels, canceled classes! My son whose school always cancels if it gets too windy (or so it seems), has school! Not sure if the weather will be good enough for me to go to work in the morning, but we will see when time comes. I know I shouldn't complain, I really feel bad for the people in Boston who have had 9 FEET of snow in the last 3 weeks. 9 FEET! God bless them!
So why not brush off the weather and think about beadwork! LOL. I was like many people sitting here at home watching the Oscars and drooling over the jewelry! I let my daughter drool over the fashion, All I wanted to see was the jewelry, hahaha. While watching the dance scenes and the acceptance speeches I made my inchie for this week. Over at Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is snail. I decided to make a cartoonie kind of inchie. I love the colors I used. I used 5 colors, although the "shell" part uses 2 colors but they are very hard to tell apart. In my mind they were much more defined. But I do like my little snail. What do you think?
I really love the colors I used, the peachy background is opaque, so is the black used on the eye, the other 3 colors are matte, and the one that is the body of the snail has a bit of a shimmer on it, which I thought was perfect for it since snails are a bit shiny. I really wish the 2 colors of the shell came out better but I still love it.
Also this week I reconnected via Facebook with 2 nieces that I have not talked to in over 20 years. That was so awesome! Really made my week. Just had to share that! LOL
Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great artwork over there. Also, I want to thank all of you who read my blog and those who leave comments it makes my day. Have a blessed, safe and warm week!
