Hey everyone, well, please don't goose me! Especially after you hear the theme, see my inchie and follow me on the reason for my design idea.
Ok, strap in cuz there will be curves in this blog. The theme this week over at Every Inchie Monday is Goose. I can tell you I am not a big fan of Geese. When I was about 20, myself, my daughter, a friend of mine and 4 of her Nephews and Nieces went to a local pond to feed the ducks. There were some geese there as well. Every time we fed the ducks the geese would run up and steal some of the bread. Making the ducks angry. Soon the geese would get greedy and want all of our bread. When they didn't get it they would nip and bite at us. My friend got bitten on the ankle and on the butt. My daughter got her hand bitten. As well as 2 of my friends Nieces! Needless to say geese did not endear me to them!
So for this week I thought outside the box. Pretty much like almost every week, right?!? So here is where the curves come in. When I thought about goose. I did not want to do a bird or a feather. I wanted something that I could link up with the way my brain works. Which is usually my first thought. But for this theme there was no first thought. Then I started working on an idea.
There is a vodka named Grey Goose. Since I don't drink I don't know much about it but I do love the artwork on the bottle. It is so pretty. But then how to put that into an inch. Then I thought about James Bond! A martini, shaken not stirred!
Since vodka is in a martini and grey goose is a vodka I did a hop, skip and a jump to a martini! A martini with a lemon wedge in it!
I thought that the 2 transparent colors would have worked good together but they did not give the effect that I wanted, but I do like it. Hope you like it as well.
That is it for me this week, but before I go I wanted to say that at the end of this year, Trillian, who has been running Every Inchie Monday almost from the beginning has decided to retire from the blog. If you think that you would like to take it over or maybe help out with it follow the EIM link and let Trillian know.
I have to say that I love the inchies. They were the reason I started this blog. Since I have been doing them for 5 years now I may have to figure something else out to do. Have a blessed and creative week my friends.
I've never heard of the drink either, but your inchie is great. These animal themes have not made me think out of the box, and it's such a shame it is finishing.ReplyDelete
Thanks Wendy, I do see alot of commercials for Grey Goose here, that is how I know what it is lol. I am hoping that someone will take over the blog!Delete
I don't drink Grey Goose but I have heard of it lol so I love the curves in the story!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much SallyDelete
Well, yes, it took a bit of lateral thinking to get there (I 'm not familiar with the brand either), but I like the reasoning behind your little goosey inchie and I always enjoy a gander at your latest work! DxReplyDelete
LOL Thanks Diane. I was glad I was able to get to it myself lolDelete
Love your train of thought! I hadn't heard of it but it still makes an awesome inchie!ReplyDelete
Thanks Cathy, I really had to think outside the box on nthis oneDelete
I thought it was an odd looking goose!! Then I read what you’d done!! Fabulous thinking outside the box and likewise I don’t drink vodka and hadn’t heard of grey goose but such a great martini glass!! As always great beading work hugs Jenny xReplyDelete
oh and yes I likewise started blogging purely because of every Inchie Monday - I will be lost without it whatever I’ve said about not having time - there’s something nice about making that time!
Yes there is something nice about having to make the time for itDelete
