Me and my Son had a great time but the drive to and from was awful and wayyy too long! I was a bit hesitant on the drive home, mostly because of last Thanksgiving's issues coming home. For those who don't remember check it out here. But we did make it home, took forever but we did it. After resting some I took time to do my inchie and twinchie for this week.
So let's get right to it. Over at Every Inchie Monday the theme was Tea, So I went with one of my daughters favorite things, teacups.
Also over at 2x2x2 the theme is Tradition. My first thought of this one was the military. What better tradition to have then to be involved in the military. So I wanted to thank a vet for their service and show what they traditionally fought for. I hope that you like it, I really love this twinchie.
This twinchie has 5 colors and it portrays a flag that I found online that was hanging on a branch somewhere after a really bad storm. I just loved the look of it and the fact that it was fraying. To me it spoke to the fact that it had been thru something. At the top I put in Thank a vet. Hope you like this one as much as I do.
Now also this week I did something that I have been wanting to do for a long while now. I am a bit scared and excited about this right now. But I really want and need to lose weight and so I started a new blog. One that I hope will inspire me (and hopefully you) to lose weight and to become a strong and empowered woman. So, if you are so inclined please check out my new blog and let your friends know about it as well. Check it out here.
That is all I have for you all this week. Don' forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to see what awesome work that everyone has come up with. I hope and pray that you all have a blessed and creative week.

Love your inchie and your twinchie and so sorry about your daughter, but so glad she's ok now. Left a comment on your new blog. I will be happy to see your new journey though this with you. Still going through it myself. Love, BeccaReplyDelete
Thanks Becca, she is doing great! You are also one of the people who inspire me to go forward with this blog idea. You are a great cheerleader for me!Delete
What a wonderful bead inchie again! I really love it :-)ReplyDelete
The flag is also very nice.
We didn't take any pictures this year either. What's with that? I love you tea cup and I really like your "thank a vet". So did my hubby, retired 30 year Air Force :)ReplyDelete
Thank you very much, tell him thank you as well.Delete
Fabulous bead-work as usual. Love the tea cup.ReplyDelete
Thanks so muchDelete
great beading as usual -especially love the tea cup . I have a number of fancy tea cups that my mother collected, when every woman had their friends over for tea or coffee and had the cups for them . I love them - so pretty and such a treasure nowReplyDelete
Thanks Kia, my daughter has many pretty tea cups, she goes to flea markets to find themDelete
I love your twinchie too - fantastic tribute, fantastically done! With my iMac, I can see every shade in your teacup, and my favourite is the purple background.ReplyDelete
thanks! Very cool that you could see the colors!Delete
