Beads in the Etsy Store

It was quite the busy weekend, so I didn't get to make any new beads. Made some today for the Bead Cruise giveaway goodie bag, an order I got in over the weekend from someone in Pittsburgh, my mom's birthday bracelet to match the earrings I gave her, and the etsy store. But meanwhile, there's still some pretty beadies waiting for new homes in the SueBeads etsy store! Take a look! Also, answer my poll at the right if you have a chance!

My son had his 2nd Degree Black Belt (e-dan) test this weekend (which I think he nailed!), the kids had a zoo class and polar bear lecture, and we went to dinner and had friends over on Saturday night. My son also had his People to People Student Ambassador interview (where he was accepted!) for his summer trip to England and France! He's so proud of himself. In addition, he has the lead role in his class holiday play this year. It's a modern version of A Christmas Carol and he plays the Scrooge character! To top it all off, he got on the high honor roll at school!

Art Elements Theme of the Month - January - Use Your Stash

Usually I'm so much better about the January Use Your Stash Challenge (hosted by Lindsay Starr this time), but this year, time is just not my friend. Between the holidays, going away on vacation, and getting back to work and trying to make new beads, there's just not a lot left in me at the end of the day.  But I did manage to get this pair of earrings made using Inviciti heart charms, some new metal spacer beads I just got, and some titanium hematite beads picked up at a Bead Fest here and there! I really like them, mostly because they are simple and hearts are my thing!  Check out what everyone else made! Thanks for stopping by!

Art Elements Theme Challenge - August - Swirls

This month Marsha Neal chose swirls as the theme of the month! I'm enjoying the challenges as themes. I've been giving my wrist a break because of perceived carpal tunnel, so I've been doing a lot in polymer, and by a lot, I mean when I have a few half hours of time! Here are the swirl themed polymer items I made for this month! This first one reminds me of a fiddlehead fern, all closed up. I painted it with alcohol inks. This next one is the before of the ammonite hearts I did. Two of my favorite things, ammonites and hearts! Colored with alcohol inks.  I made two, the colors turned out very different! More spirals in the form of polymer clay ammonite cabochons. I really love mixing the paints to color these! Plus you get a gratuitous flower shot!  More ammonites colored with ranger patina inks and alcohol inks in that order.  My fave, I think - I love the colors! Alcohol inks. This next one was made with acrylic paint and I tried crackle on it, d
