Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by again. I am very thankful that you decided to stop by, I truly appreciate it. This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Enjoy. So for me I thought about what I would enjoy doing someday. I would really love to go up in a hot air balloon. What better way to show that off in my inchie then by having an angled view of a hot air balloon.
Also over at 2x2x2 the theme is Flower of Life. I just thought that was a cute way of saying something beautiful in our lives that we would want to design. Have thought that before in some of the inchie themes in the past, like this one here. I did not look it up and just assumed that the theme was literal. But you know what they say about "assume". So for this one I did some background.
[The "Flower of Life" can be found in all major religions of the
It contains the patterns of creation as they emerged from the
"Great Void". Everything is made from the Creator's thought.]
I really love this idea. I am already a geometric design freak. I really love doing that kind of design in beads. It just feeds something inside of my design brain. After looking at all the Flower of life pictures I saw online I was just drawn to this one.
So I took this picture idea and turned it into this, obviously not the same design but I really like my take on this design.
I also finished the last of the past twinchies that I missed. This one is Royal. This was the twinchie theme that made me want to start designing twinchies. I liked the idea and started working on a design theme. For mine I made a pillow with a tiara and a scepter beside it. Very old fashion "royal" but I still liked the idea for it.
So now I am caught up on all of the twinchies and can not wait to keep working on them the rest of this year. If you think you might like to participate in the Inchies or the Twinchies then follow the links and get the years list. I would love to see what you come up with.
The 4th of July is coming up this next weekend so I would like to say God bless America and the wonderful people in it. I will be excitedly going up to see my family in Illinois for a big family birthday/4th of July party so next weeks post might be a bit late. So if I miss commenting on all of your blogs then, forgive me and have a blessed and happy 4th of July. For my friends over seas, have a blessed and happy July 4th, LOL.
