I Wish It Would Rain

Thanks for stopping by Freebird's Nest.  I hope that you are all hydrating, staying in the shade and enjoying as much AC as you can.  Todays temps were around 98 degrees and the heat index was 105!!!  Needless to say I stayed inside and played with my beads.  I know, I know it was a sacrifice but you know, somebody had to do it!  LOL

This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme was Yellow.  My inchie this week came to me while driving to work.  I do spend some time driving so my mind goes to all the things I see.  So my first thought was trying to make the green lights before they turn yellow.  Yellow! So that was my inspiration for this weeks inchie. 


In this inchie I used 5 colors of Delicas.  This is not quite the round stop lights we usually see, this is an inchie stop light, so the colors are diamond shaped!  I do like it for the most part, I am not happy that there were a few white beads that were not even.  But oh well. 

Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Rain.  Man I could use some rain right now.  Arkansas rain is so different then Illinois rain.  I really miss Illinois rain.  I always love to sit out and watch it rain, many times even playing it the rain.  Summer rain was always the best! 

Here in Arkansas it is sooo different.  When it rains it seems to bring fog and more HEAT in the summer.  In the winter it just makes everything slipperyier!  Also after it rains here the humidity flys up and my asthma goes into over drive!  Blek! 

But, one thing I love about rain no matter where I am is "Singin in the Rain".  I adore Gene Kelly and this movie.  One of my all time favorites.  As a kid I wanted so badly to dance with him.  But since that never happened I watch the movie any chance I get.  And so when this theme came up I automatically knew what the twinchie would be. Check this out.


Isn't he just awesome?  Well, I know that he inspired many a dancer and he inspired my twinchie this week.  I hope that you like it. 



That is all I can handle for this week as it is way to hot to do more than watch Gene Kelly.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to check out the awesome art over there.  Also if you feel the urge to join us, act on it.  We would love to see what you can come up with!

Have a blessed, creative and hydrated week!

  2. Singing in the rain is a beautiful inchie. Yes, his is awesome. Great idea for yellow inchie,,,,,, that yellow colour they call amber for reasons unknown. Makes me also think of that song Pennies from Heaven, where the advice is to turn your umbrella upside down to catch all the pennies raining from above. You're a beautiful beader.
