Hiya everyone, I hope that you are all enjoying the 3 day weekend here in America. Happy Labor Day. Did you go buy a mattress? I really couldn't find out the true reason for so many Labor Day mattress sales but I think it is because so many people are off work that it is the best time to get them to spend the money on an expensive mattress. Also, get them to celebrate their "labors" by buying a new mattress!
I hate to admit it but I am one of the many who took advantage of Labor Day sales, I got a new push mower. Well, I bought my Son a new push mower. He loves to mow the grass. Remember my last Twinchie, 2 weeks ago? If not check it out here.
This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is "Ear", I thought about making an ear with an earring on it, I also thought about making just an earring. But of course, I did not go that way! I decided to go with a play on words. Back in the day, when you went to court there was someone who got your attention by saying "Hear ye, hear ye." so that was my inspiration for this weeks inchie.
For this inchie I used 3 colors and if you can't tell it is a judges gavel and block. LOL I know, now you get the "Ear ye, Ear ye!"
Also this week is Twinchie week. Over at 2x2x2 they have a challenge every other week and this weeks theme is "Treasure". I had a lot of fun with this one. I have always wanted to go on a treasure hunt. Who hasn't? But what is the first thing you need for a treasure hunt? A map, of course. So that is what I made. Check this out.
I took this design from an old treasure map. I even added the ship, the trail to take, a forest and housing. Also a compass in the bottom left corner and of course don't forget the big red "X". This design uses 8 colors of Delicas and I had a lot of fun designing this one and beading it up.
So that is it for me this week, don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 and check out the great designs there and who knows, maybe you will want to join in. We would love it if you did.
Have a blessed and creative week and thank you to all those who read and post on my blog. I am really blessed by your comments.
