Big News! This Little Piggy is Running Late!

Hey everybody, hope this finds you all well.  I am running a day late on this one.  I actually got distracted by new beads and almost forgot to post my blog!  But I have to say my new beads are pretty!  All beads are pretty!

This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is Pig.  Since I am in Arkansas I could have went with a Razorback but why would I want to?  That would be easy!  LOL  But I did do a cute little pink pig with a big black nose.

I am not entirely happy with his nose but I do like the look of him.  Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is News.  My first attempt was to do a carrier pigeon but I did not like the look of it so I designed this one.  Then just before I went to bead it I thought about adding more detail but I decided to go with my less detailed one.  Hope you like it.

I made a newspaper front page.  I love the simple lines and blocks of color.  It tells you it is a newspaper without telling you it is a news paper.

Also, I know I have vague about my health issues lately.  Mostly because I was hoping that what I was worried about was not the problem.  It seems that I am having issues with yet another one of my organs and it is time to kick her out.  We have not been getting along lately, we have been fighting alot lately!  So on the 24th I will be kicking her out, I will be having my gallbladder out.  I know, I know it is not really a big deal.  Everyone says so; but I was hoping that I would not have to miss work, or have to have surgery all together.  But I am thinking about the fact that I will no longer be in constant pain, and that makes me want to do this.  Maybe with that time off I will get to do some beadwork!  LOL

Anyways, enough of that!  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 and see the other amazing artwork by some super talented people!


  1. Love your pink pig, your beadwork is fabulous.

  2. What a cutie pie piggie! Nicely done graphic for the newspaper, so glad you participate.
    Here's hoping for smooth sailing through surgery. It's not supposed to be a big deal; I pray for the best surgeon for you and a great team to take care of you post-op.
    And yeah, some beading downtime! c

  3. Hope all goes well with the removal of your gall bladder.

    Love the inchie and the other beadwork design as well

    Take care

    Love Chrissie xx
