Creating a spark
I just posted the link to the winter issue of ZNetShows Creative Spark emag. It's NOW located over on the right hand side - look for the beautiful cover photo of the piece by fellow ZNet designer Amy Severino. I didn't participate as a designer this time, but it is still a BEAUTIFUL issue that does indeed create a spark. ENJOY! I DO plan to participate in the next issue's challenge - ZNet is so generous with their offerings for designers - and have a great inventory of fun sea glass and other beads for everyone to purchase as well. I hope you'll head over and check them out... (just click the link above).
As I probably mentioned in a previous post or two (ha-ha) I've reached that point in my beading 'career' that I am all about entering contests. My first was Fire Mountain Gems Seed Bead Contest in 2013 - for which I was chosen a finalist. As a FIRST TIME entrant, it blew me away that I was one of the honorees. They just emailed me again this week and requested that enter for 2015! As I had already planned to enter Bead Dreams (not going so well) and possibly Battle of the Beadsmith (not sure I can be that fast on my design feet), I decided to go for it. So in the works at this time, along with gallery inventory, show year inventory, class preparation, and monthly play date prep - is my FMG entry too. If I'm gonna do this bead thing, I may as well do it BIG! LOL! If you haven't already seen my 2013 entry (again - ha-ha) it's over there on the right hand side too.
Hope you're having a fun filled winter, all warm and cozy with brews of whatever you choose, blankets and cozy socks to keep you warm, and of course - BEADS.
And P.S. let me know what you think of my NEW BLOG LOOK. I only intended to change the text font, and well - got a little crazy. But I kinda like it.
