Lions, Turtles and Volcanos??

Hey everyone, thanks for visiting the chaos here at the nest.  We AGAIN lost internet and they said they would send their "best technician" out to fix the problem once and for all!  Guess what?  HE DID IT!!! (for now!)  So here's hoping that the issue is fixed!

Also this weekend he had SO MANY people at the house.  My son had an early birthday weekend sleepover with all ALL of his friends.  You know how much fun it is to be in a smallish house with 6 teenage boys.  Trust me, not too much fun and no silence to be had!  Not to much time for beading either; but I did get some done.  What else would I do since we had no internet?!?

Well, to start off I get to show you something that I made last week for my Niece's graduation.  Actually, she is my niece by association.  She is my best friends daughter and as such she is my Niece.  I know that she loves turtles so I made her some earrings.

Here they are with the hooks on.

I had to wait until she got them before I could show them off.  I am glad that she got them and loves them!

This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Lion.  A few months back the theme at 2x2x2 was Lion so I had to make this one different than that one.  So since the Lion is the King of the jungle I made a crown filled with jewels.

This inchie has 8 metallic jewel tone colors in it.  A very pretty and expensive looking crown, if it were real!

Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Volcano.  I had visions of this one being clearer looking than it came out but the colors kinda blend together more than I wanted to.  What do you think?

Well, that is it for me this week.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to check out the great art and join in the fun.  Have a blessed and creative week my friends.


  1. Wonderful ideas as always--King of the Jungle is inspired for your inchie

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. Fabulous as always. Love them all, especially the volcano.

  3. Fun turtle earrings & a real flowing volcano, the idea of a crown was a great route to take for this week's prompt!


  4. Wonderful results...those turtles are so cute and the volcano is so very detailed...the crown is also a wonderful interpretation...Dixx

  5. Great interpretation for lion - I was wondering how you would do it but as ever brilliantly done and the turtle ratings are gorgeous. Also love the volcano x

  6. I love this volcano. I have been teasing my daughter about the Super Volcano in Yellowstone...

    1. LOL thanks, tell her I got a bead pic of it blowing!
