What a dork I am.
So, today needs some happyness in it...which to me means...BEADS!
I sent my trusty assistant, Russ, from Rings 'N Things, into my bead room in search of goodies to share with you all today. Now, it's possible that over the years, the bead room has become a bit, ummm, what's the word? Crowded? Disorganized? Dangerously overgrown like the darkest forests of Africa?
I tried to warn Russ, but he plunged ahead anyway. I guess there are no lengths he won't go to in search of beads:
I did forget to provide him with a map and compass, however, so he might've gotten a bit lost in there (it's easy to do - happens to me all the time).
I think he was trying to climb up higher in the tree to take a look around, but he only succeeded in getting more lost.
And then it got dark...
I may've also forgotten to warn him that some of the more overgrown corners are home to strange creatures:
Look out, Russ! It's the giant man-eating parrot of Toomoonawanda!
Looks like I arrived just in time to save the day:
I finally rescued Russ from the bead room jungle and pointed him in the right direction:
And we finally did find those beads:
Today's drool-worthy items are from Artisan Clay.
This one reminds me of a frosty winter sky.
And this one is the sunshine on the water at Crescent Bay (my favorite beach!)
This one is very subtle - the picture doesn't do it justice. In real life, it's the color of beach sand with a few hints of pale blue and aqua here and there. PERFECT for summer-time jewelry!
And the bright colors in this one just make me happy.
Of course, I have no idea what I'm going to do with any of them yet, but they were so beautiful, I just couldn't resist.
That's it for now. Happy Friday, everyone!
P.S. I sent in some submissions to "Bead Trends" magazine for their December issue so wish me luck on that!
