Long Week of Juggling Apples

Hello everyone, I hope that last week was a good one for all of you.  Mine was long, very looong!  Not sure why it was so long but it was, seems like it was for alot of us at work.  Lets hope that this next week is a breeze.

Now getting to some beady art and a bit of foody art.  This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Apple, so I decided to make an apple tree.  I don't know why I have been really in love with trees lately but I have been.  Speaking of that I have 2 trees to show off this week!  But first off is my Apple tree.  In this inchie I used 5 colors of Delicas.  I was also able to squeeze in the tree, the apples and a bushel of them at the bottom of the tree.  Hope you like it.


I also wanted to show of some of the past Twinchies that I missed.


This theme is Tree.  I got inspired by my Mom's red bird house, that she used to sit in her kitchen and watch the birds go crazy eating all the bird seed, and the swing that my parents bought for my daughter when she was about 8 years old.  She went to a birthday party and they had a full swing set and she was so bummed out that she did not even have just 1 swing, "I just want one swing," she said sadly to my Dad who had to go immediately out to the store and buy her a swing; which by the way still sits there to this day!

The next weeks theme was Maze.  I looked up a printable maze online and transferred that into beads,  I like the look of this one.  Makes me think to make one into a bracelet design!  Hmmmm.


The last one I got done was Georgia.  My first thought was something colorful of Georgia O'Keefe, So this is my take on one of her paintings, Blue Flowers I loved it so much that I made it into a lighter cover that I showed off 2 weeks ago. 


Also this weekend I decided to make another triangle, I really love making them.  I don't know why I don't make more.  This one uses 3 colors, I love the designs on it.  Designed by Anabel.  The site is in Russian but the patterns are self explanatory.

Also this weekend I have been busy, alongside all the beading I made homemade ravioli.  Yes, homemade ravioli!  I made the noodles and filled them with ground turkey and cheese.  They were not perfect but they were good.  Pretty good for a first try if I do say so myself!  LOL.  But next time I think I will have to get a pasta machine first and to also make sure I don't overwork the dough.  But, I think for a first try it looks good, what do you think?




So that was my busy weekend, which was way too short compared to how long the work week has been.  I hope that you all have a creative and beady week ahead and go enjoy some trees or ravioli.  Or maybe some ravioli under a tree lol.  Also don't forget to fly on over to EIM to see all the great apples they have for you there!

  2. I always look forward to seeing how you used beads to make the Inchie, and you never disappoint me. However, this week, I was so touched; the story of your daughter and the swing really tugged at my heart. And, finally, I made ravioli once ONCE also. It was fun, it was good, but soooo much time. Probably never again. Yours looks yummy!
