Last Inchie is the GOAT!

Hey everyone, I hope this last post of the year finds you well, Merry Christmas.  I hope that you all get to spend this blessed day with your family and friends.

This is also the last inchie of the year, I am hoping that it will get picked up for next year!  But, Trillian over at Every Inchie Monday saved the best for last.  GOAT!  I know many of you are thinking, "Why is the goat the best?"  The truth is that the GOAT is the Greatest Of All Time.  Literally!

Did you see what I did there?  Well, if you are a sports fan you know who the GOAT is.  S/He is someone different for each sport and each team.  On my favorite team, The Chicago Blackhawks; the GOAT, or Greatest Of All Time is #88 Patrick Kane.

So for this inchie I decided to do his jersey number.

This inchie came at the coolest time as well since Patrick Kane just got his 300th goal!  YAY!  GOAT!!!!!!!!  YESSSSS!!!

Also, here is the year in inchies.

Hahaha, I just had to see if it would stand on its own and it kinda did.  I also finally figured out how I am going to be hanging them.  I will be taking a clip off of the duffel bags we have at work and beading a loop around then and hanging the inchies from them.  Now to just get 4 more of them from people at work who don't want their bags!  LOL

Just a side note, I will be having carpal tunnel surgery on January 2nd.  So just keep me in your prayers.  Thanks everyone and I hope that you have a blessed and creative Christmas and New Year.

Rudolph With Your Nose So Bright.....

Hello everyone, hope this finds you all well.  Hard to believe that there is only 2 more weeks until 2018!  1 more week until Christmas.  Didn't this year just start a few months ago??  What's up with that!?! 

Well, before Every Inchie Monday ends for good, I am enjoying the last 2 inchies this year.  This weeks theme is Reindeer.  So of course who else would I bead up.  RUDOLPH!!!! 

I love the way he looks. With his nose so bright!  Also this week I finished a piece I have been working on for a few weeks. I am so happy that I got it done before I have to go have surgery!  I gave a sneak peak last week and I finished it early today.

This is a Burberry-style Christmas puffy star ornament. This is from a monthly challenge over at the Facebook group Seed Beads and More.  I enjoyed making this, it was my first time to finish a star.  I started one last year but it got put to the wayside when I found something else to work on!  I stuffed this star with kleenex.  I just did not know what to fill it with but I do like this.  Even if I made so many mistakes on it.  But I really like it.

That is it for me this week. Next Monday will be Christmas so I will prolly be late in posting so free me and mine I wish you and yours a Merry Christmas!  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the great artists over there.  Just 2 more to go! 

Have a blessed and creative week my friends.

This Wolf Pack(ed) of a Year is Almost Over

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by the nest this week.  Not a lot going on here this week.  I have been working on a special piece that I am hoping will be done before the end of the year.  I will give you a peak at the end of this post. 

I am racing against the clock though since I will be going to the Dr. in just over a week to find out when I will be having surgery for carpal tunnel.  I will then be away from my beads for a few weeks!!!!!!  To say I am already going through withdrawls is an understatement!

But for now, as Every Inchie Monday is winding down, the theme this week is Wolf.  I knew immediately that I wanted to do the typical wolf silhouette.  It is a bit of a stretch to see it but you will get it when you see the inspiration picture; the picture I took the pattern from.

And here is the inspiration picture.

Makes me think of the call of the wild!  How about you?  Now for my special piece that I have been working on.  It is for one of the Facebook groups.  I am hoping to get it done in time, we will see!  Here is a bit of the piece.  Just a teaser though! 

Well, there it is!  Some of you might know what this is, others can try to guess. 

That is it for me this week, don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the wolf artwork over there.

Don't Be A Boar!

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by the nest this week.  This is going to be a quick one (hopefully!) LOL This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Wild Boar.  I live in Arkansas where college football is KING.  And college football in Arkansas means calling the Hogs! 

This is how it is done here in Arkansas

That is it for me this week.  Take care everyone and don't forget to fly on over to EIM and checking out the great boars over there.  Now, I did not mean IT that way!
