I had sent my application to Battle of the Beadsmith MONTHS ago; sort of forgot about it, set my sights on Bead Dreams, gave that up, set my sights on Fire Mountain (plus another local competition), completed and entered those - and forgot about BOBS. Thank goodness for GOOD Facebook friends!
So starting tomorrow - April 1 - the RACE IS ON! I have until around the first part of June to complete, and PROFESSIONALLY photograph the piece. And I'm starting from scratch, of course. At the time that Renetha informed me I was on the list - my brain was still in the FMG contest zone.
Had to come up with an entirely different, new, unique and totally COOL plan. Lucky for me - I was able to dream it up! FIRST the NAME CAME - and then digging in the drawers (even in the early wee hours while waiting for the coffee to be done dripping) came up with the components. Ready, set, BEAD!
I don't think we can reveal too much about our pieces - but mine is "Michigan themed". That's all I'm sayin'.
So fun and games time, girls. Play days, open house, the Battle, and finally,
FINALLY - WARMTH!!
