Solar Eclipsing Seagulls

Hiya everyone!  How are you all doing?  Did any of you go out and see the eclipse?  I did!  Without the glasses it was pretty underwhelming!  But a friend at work had the glasses and we were all standing around looking through them.  Now that was cool!!

For those outside of the US check this out.

Now also this week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Seagull!  When I think of seagulls I should think of the ocean but here in Arkansas I always see the ring billed gull at Walmart and Hobby Lobby.  They are not too picky they just congregate where no cars are and seem to be together cawing at one another.  LOL

But for the inchie I decided to go with an ocean theme.  I designed a lighthouse with 3 seagulls in the background.  Hope you like it.

That is it for me this week.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the seagulls.  I bet you wont have to worry about getting pooped on (let's hope)!  Have a blessed and creative week my friends.

Frogs, Popsicles and Pencil Covers

Hey everyone, I am running a bit late this week.  But that is ok.  This weeks theme over at Every Inchie Monday is Frog.  Which is kinda cool since I see frogs everywhere around here.  I even when to a pet store with my son and we saw a frog for sale and I about fell over.  It was a pretty electric blue frog that was about the size of a nickle and cost $70.00!!!  WHAT!!!!  I mean really WHAT!!!!!

Well, my frog is way cheaper than that one but at the same time one of the most highly paid frogs in the business!  Check out my Kermie!  Kermit the Frog!

Also this last week I had to get my oil changed and I took my beads with me and made a cute little Kawaii-style popsicle.

One of the car salesmen saw me beading and we talked about how his daughter loves beading.  After I got done I gave him m little popsicle to give to his daughter.  I just hope that it inspires her to expand her love of beads!

Also this week I spent some time working on my pencil cover, to match the pen cover I did here.  There is only one thing wrong with my pencil cover, can you see it?

Well, I don't know how I did it but I did the pencil cover backwards!  LOL  I guess I am just that kinda good!  I do like them and I am glad I got them done.

Well that is it for me this week.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great frogs over there.  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed and creative week.

Beady Alligator Problems!

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping but the nest this week.  I am happy that I had a small amount of time to do some beadwork!  YAY!!!  LOL

First off over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Alligator!  You all know me, I just did not want to make an alligator on my inchie, not to mention that I couldn't make it in an inch!  So I went with something that to me sounded extravagant.  An Alligator bag!  Check it out!

 I have to say I really like how this came out. Even though the green beads were a pain in the butt!  I had to cull a lot of them.  Culling means that you go through beads and separate the good beads from the bad ones.  Here is some of the bad ones.

Many of these are uneven on one side of the bead or they are just to skinny to be used!  This may not seem like a lot of beads but this was just what I found while beading just this inchie!  Sadly, a few got sewn into the inchie.  But I wont tell if you don't!

Also, this week I had time to bead a small bead tube.  I was wanting to bead a bunch of them but that did not happen. I also used colors that were near to me instead of getting up and getting pretty colors.  But that is ok, lol.  I was just happy to have a few moments to bead so I was not going to complain!

This picture doesn't really show the tube in all its glory, but this is beading that had been sewn together to make a tube.  I got the pattern for it from Carolyn over at Seedbeaders.  Wish I had a better picture of this one, maybe next week I will have more to show.

That is it for me this week.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great work there.  Have a blessed and creative week my friends.
