Just a few more days before the FIRST reveal of the Bead Soup Blog Party Challenge! I’m sure there’s gonna be some yummy designs – always fills me up with joy AND ideas! MY reveal date is the second date – Saturday, April 6th. So save room AND time for more!
Most of you that are Facebook friends and followers have already seen this – but here is the finished “Mariposa” piece:
And, yes – I surprise myself again. I had no idea where it was going or what it would look like when I began – other than having to use 50% seed beads. Several false starts later – here she is. Still need a more professional photograph before submitting – but I have 2 whole months before the deadline. My hubby brought home some nice white foam board, and we’re going to build me a light box. It’s on the ‘honey do’ list for his week of vacation next week! LOL!
I’ll also be switching out art pieces at the Shiawassee Art Center this weekend. I showed you in the last post a few pieces I’ll be bringing home; here are a few of the pieces I’ll be dropping off:
I’m anxious to see how the clientele react to the new pieces. Although they didn’t purchase any of the 22 previous ones – I have been told that almost everyone has wanted to try on at least one piece! So it’s encouraging, and it’s getting my name out there. A BONUS even without the sales in my book.
I hope you’re staying safe and warm wherever you are. I see a few more signs of spring with each venture out of the house – birds chirping louder, buds on the trees – daylilies, crocus and spring bulb beauties poking out just a bit to test the air. So stay calm and bead on…..spring really IS here.
