Earth Leap

Hiya everyone, I hope this finds you well.  I am still struggling with being sick.  My son had pink eye and a chest cold and I of course got the chest cold, ( I was almost finished with my last chest cold when I got his).  We are both on meds but he is all better and I am still working on it!  ARG!

Enough of that!  This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Earth.  At the time that I designed this I was making alot of Kawaii themed designs.  So that spilled over into my inchie design for this week.  I wonder if I could do an entire year of Kawaii themed inchies.  Well I just gotta tell myself "don't think about it"  or I will start all over.  LOL  OCD and all.

Anyways, here is my inchie, I really like her, she is cute. I used 4 colors of delicas and beaded her backwards, but I am really the only one who can tell that so it only bugs the crap outta me lol.  By that I mean the thread should be coming out of the left side of the inchie and it isn't so it is beaded backwards on the ribbon of inchies.


Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Leap and I had to think really hard on what I wanted to do, everything I tried did not look good.  Then I remembered that I had been wanting to bead some of those beautiful tree frogs.  Why not have one leaping over another.  A true leap frog if you will.  This one was so much fun to make.  I used 8 colors of Delicas.  I really love the colors in it, what do you think?


Also, this last week a friend announced a competition on her blog and facebook page to celebrate her 10,000th viewer to her blog!!  Congrats for sure Becca!  I am going to work on projects for the competition and if you are interested join it the prizes are awesome. A $250 gift package from Potomac Bead Company and some extras added in from The Wild Bead & Boutique.  For 2nd place there is a $50 gift certificate from Bello Modo I can not wait to feel a bit beter before I can start on this one!

Also there is the Dry Gulch February challenge that has only 1 week left.  You could win a $50 or $25 gift card.  So I gotta get of my cold haze and work on this as well.

So there is alot going on in this blog this week, but if you want to have some fun and maybe win some cool prizes, join along in Beccas Challenge or Dry Gulch Challenge or both!  Also don't forget the sheer fun and enjoyment of doing inchies and twinchies.  Once you start they are so much fun and kinda addictive lol.  I would love it if you joined in and checked any of these out.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a quick little comment I love them so much.  Take care and have a blessed and creative week everyone.

  6. Just love the frogs and your inchie. I thought you had made it backwards NOT. Are you telling me there is a backwards way of doing it, crumbs, that's something new I've learnt today.
