...and even more beading!


Somewhere along the lines I became completely obsessed with these wrapped loops:


... and then recycled 2 charms from old jewelry I never wear to add to the loop/bead chains:


So now that the jewelry box has been restocked with pretty things the beading supplies are being packed up and put back into the closet. I think the sewing machine is the next thing to make an appearance in the studio so I'm off to find some decent dress patterns in my overstocked stash.

Its been all beads

Ive been on a mission to craft with supplies I already have here and I've been on a bead kick for the last couple of days:




I've started simple and now I'm trying to perfect my wrapped loops (thanks to this tutorial) to replicate a few pieces out of my favorite online catalog

Been beading...

Trying to switch it up a bit and the old bead box in the back of the closet seemed to jump out at me! Hope to be back with a few finished pieces to share soon

Studio studio...



I have been traveling and playing hostess for almost a month now. I LOVE playing hostess and I have loved all our visitors, events, and busyness but I am now missing my studio. Im missing all the creativity, projects, and freedom that comes from this space. Im missing the release, the excitement, and the expression that comes from creating in general.

Hoping to reclaim my space again soon and in turn have post worthy creative things to share here. Until then I will just keep letting my project to-do list grow and grow from all the inspiration via the fabulous crafty blog world. Happy Sunday.
