A few bits of beadwork this week.

Hiya everyone an thanks for stopping by the nest this week.  I am really glad that you stopped by. This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Lumberjack.  This was not an easy theme to work with for sure.  

There are tons of lumber companies here in Arkansas.  My uncle used to be a logger (formerly called lumberjacks) and I can tell you that for sure it is really one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.  I know that my uncle had toppled over inside of a crane and also had a tree fall on him.  All of this just so that we can have the wood we need to build with.  

But with all of that in mind I still couldn't figure anything out to design.  Then it finally hit me, what is the one thing that ALL lumberjacks have in common?  Plaid!!!!  LOL  So here it is!


 For this inchie I used 3 colors, an opaque black, a matte red and a matte transparent grey.  I like it, I like the color mash-up.

Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Hot.  I figured out what I was gonna do for this one immediately.  For some reason I am really interested in hot air balloons.  So I decided to show off a hot air balloon in air as the sun sets.  Hope you like it.


For this twinchie I used 9 colors of delicas.  The picture does not show off that the background orange color is actually a matte and an opaque orange but still I like the look of it.

This is all I have this week, but don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to check out the great artwork over there and if you want to join in I would love to see what you come up with.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a message, and have a blessed and creative week.

  2. Very nice plaid for your lumberjack to wear. I love hot air balloons too. We were watching one just the other day. With our beautiful weather, we see lots of them in AZ and yours is really pretty enough to join them!

  4. Great work, Freebird! Thanks so much for participating in the twobytwo. Funny, this week is the incredible International Balloon Fiesta in Albuqueque. The weather was mostly unforgiving for the balloons this past weekend-- windy, cloudy, rain. But we still had fun watching the festivities. Have a brilliant day! c
