Life has been topsy turvey still, my arm is ready for a bionic replacement, the letter 'h' is still on vacation, and I may possibly be scrambling for a roommate soon, BUT, despite my tendency to become depressed and reclusive, I NEVER give in totally!! So, here is some recent EXCITEMENT!!
MY PERLER BEADS ARE IN! I ordered these lovelies from bluendash through ebay and got so much extra with my order! I am soo happy with all of the colors, the way everyting is bagged and labeled for me, and about the ideas I can't wait to make. My lovely and eco-conscious friend Cyndy mourned over the perler beads being plastic, which makes me feel a bit awful, so perhaps these aren't Karmic Goodies, as much as just eye-candy!
Then there is my recent love of embroidery and hand-sewing! These are some little clouds I made just to practice the blanket stitch.
Then there is the MOST EXCITING NEWS!!! I decided to do someting completely selfish and sign up for Elsie and Rachel's joint web-worksop!!! If you look at the project list you will certainly be both inspired and jealous!
These are the lovelies: Racel Denbow and Elsie Flannigan...
I have been following their progression for about five years now (crazy?? web-stalkerish?? hmmm) Well, in all fairness, Elsie is scrapbooking royalty with two books, a product line, and a huge following. Rachel primarily runs their joint venture RED VELVET ART which had a funky kit club and is now opening up a 'real life' store!! (I wish I lived in MO!) Rachel also runs the heartachingly cute shop PONY PARTY on etsy. So, even though I have never considered myself a groupie type, I couldn't help but want to be in on the fun and let Rachel and Elsie get to know me!! (hahaha!) Truhtfully, I am trying to make creativity more of a priority in life even if others may find me selfish. Through this course I hope to meet some crafty friends and bring smiles to my forlorn face!
Look at these cute project sneak-peeks!
