Chickens, Ducks and Peppermints, OH MY!!

Hey everyone, glad to be back after a week off.  For those who might have missed it, last week I had my gallbladder taken out.  I am doing good.  I will be going back to work on Thursday and will be on light duty for 4 weeks.  Luckily that wont stop me from doing my beadwork!

I did wait until Friday before I beaded, not because I couldn't do it but because I was not up to it.  I also found it hard to explain to the furbabies that I can not hold them or let them sit in my lap.  They don't listen AT ALL!  My cat kept wanting to sleep ON the spot where my gallbladder used to be.  But she has been climbing on me when I sleep and sleeping on my hip.  WHY?!?

So let's get to what I missed last week.  Last week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme was Rooster.  So I went a different way on this one (of course).  I work for the biggest chicken producers in the world and so you can guess what came to my mind.  Chicken nuggets and drumsticks.  So I decided to make a drumstick since I figured nuggets wouldn't look recogniseable.

Here I used 3 colors of Delicas and made the inchie look like it might have came from "The Colonel".  Funny that I used to drumstick since I am not a fan of the dark meat chicken.

Now for this week over at EIM the theme is Duck.  What a fun theme.  So many ways to go on this one.  First off I thought about the Peabody hotel and the Ducks.

If you have never seen this or heard of the Peabody, check this out.  So adorable!

But I decided that I was going to go the route of the rubber ducky.  So here is my little rubber ducky.

I think he is cute and would make a great charm.  I might have to make that happen!

Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Peppermint.  I really had the hardest time trying to think of something good for this theme, and the only thing I could think of was a close up of a peppermint candy.

That is it for me this week.  Don't forget to follow the links and check out the other blogs and all the great artwork over there.  Have a blessed and creative week my friends and for those dealing with the bad weather please stay safe,


  1. So Pleased to hear that all went well and that the cats are looking after you:)

    Always great to see your inchies and I love the chicken leg take on last weeks theme.

    Take care

    Love Chrissie xx

    1. Thanks Chrissie, it does seem that even the evil cat is being nice to me. Now that is scary!

  2. I am so glad you are recovering well after your op, furry friends are helpful aren't they I have one that always jumps on my chest with a little prrrmp just as I'm dozing off and then proceeds to lie on my neck! I usually push her down the bed but she always ends up near my face staring at me! I love your little yellow duck he is so cute and what a clever idea to do a chicken drum stick and all in beads - so clever and I'm glad you are now feeling well enough for beading, nothing worse than not wanting to do the things you love because you're not up to it. Thank you so much for your condolences it means a lot.

    1. Thanks so much Jenny, and you are most welcome. My daughters cat a.k.a. "Her royal evilness!" likes to sleep on my daughters chest and watches her as well.

  3. Glad to hear you are well on the mend and your cats are living up to their catty natures and taking such care of you and reminding you of your health issues ;)
    Your beads are lovely as always, Dixx

  4. Love the little duck and so glad to hear you are doing better! I love the story about the Peabody hotel. One of my favorite books to read to my class is about those ducks. I would love to see them "in person".

    1. Thanks Cathy. So glad that you have heard of the Peabody.
