A Quill on the Horizon

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by the nest this week.  I have been beading all weekend.  Some of it I can not show since it is for Christmas.  But, I can tell you that I had to do the frog stitch.  For those of you who don't know what the frog stitch is it is when you have to rip apart work that you already did for whatever reason; ripit, ripit, ripit.  Get it?!? Anyways!  Yea I was not too happy about it but I did fix the issue and now I am happy about that.  I think that even if I started on Christmas ornaments in July I would still be behind!

This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Horizon.  I love the look of the horizons here, which kinda inspired this weeks inchie.  I used 4 colors of Delicas and made a bright blue sky with a beautiful sun and one lone cloud.

Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Quill.  What a nice word that is so hard to display in beads.  But I used a feather pattern that I designed last year then added an ink pot next to it.  Easy!  So here it is.

Also this last week me and my daughter went to see the Impractical Jokers.  It was so great, we had so much fun!  I had pics but they were all blurry and no I did not get to meet the guys, wouldn't that have been cool!  OH YEAH!

Well, that is it this week, a short and sweet one as I have to get up early for PT.  But before I go I would like to urge you all to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to check out the other artists work.  Who knows you might just want to join in.

I Am Moving In All Directions

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by the nest this week.  I seem to be flying in all directions lately.  With my little dog still on the mend.  He can walk just a few steps at a time.  But he is getting better.  I am still doing physical therapy.  It is taking alot out of me.  But I know that it will be for the better when it is all over.

Speaking of going in all directions, the theme this week over at Every Inchie Monday is Direction!  I actually made a design that when I looked at it I thought it was a snowflake and was about to write about how I was not ready to see thousands of them all over the place.  So glad that I took a second look, lol.

So without further ado here is my direction inchie that just happens to look like a snowflake.

If you would like to get all your directions mixed up like I did this week then fly on over to EIM and check out the list, make an inchie and try not to get confused like me!  LOL  I swear it is fun.  Also check out 2x2x2 and join it over there as well.  There is already next years list up.

Here is hoping that you all have a blessed and creative (and confusion free) week.

Copper Dinosaurs Making Tracks

Hey everyone, hope you all have had a great weekend.  Mine was nice.  Quiet.  Enjoyable.  Beady.  I did decide to try something new.  I made homemade spaghetti sauce.  Yea, sounds like it would be AMAZING.  Well, it would have been if I had picked a better recipe!  I really should have read the comments.  But I was overwhelmed with the idea that homemade sauce would be AMAZING that I jumped into the shallow end of the pool without looking first!  Blek!  Don't get me wrong, it was good.  But I had to do a ton of doctoring.  

Also this weekend I did a lot of beading.  I got my inchie done.  Over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Dinosaur.  So many ways to go with that theme but I decided to go with a long gone evidence of the existence of dinosaurs.  Their footprints!

I used 2 colors of Delicas and tried to make these look like 2 different types to dino tracks.

Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Copper.  I used to dislike the copper color.  I am a total silver girl.  But maybe now that I am getting older I am liking it a bit more.  But I had trouble figuring out what to do for this one.  So I went with the periodic table.  Did you know that copper is number 29 on the table and has 29 protons.  I know this because wikipedia told me!  LOL  So here is my twinchie.  The Cu stands for Cuprum (which stands for copper in Latin)

Still taking care of my little dog, he is getting his ability to walk back and that is awesome.  I can't wait for him to be back to normal.  Will also have many more weeks of PT 3x a week!  I already need a nap.  LOL

Also, don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to check out the great works, and join in, I would love to see what you come up with!

Have a blessed and creative week my friends.
