Bead Soup Partner

Let me introduce my bead soup partner, Barbara Mason. Just look at these lovely earrings she made. You can visit her blog, Adorningly Yours, and her Etsy shop, Adorningly Yours.
Copper Boho Hoops with Green Agate and Carnelian and Garnet Dangles
Our bead soups are in the mail. We are a little late because Barbara was lucky enough to be in Tuscon. So look out for us now because we are "cooking up" something interesting.
Here is just a little peak at what is heading Barbara's way.

And look at the wonderful things I received from Barbara!  Even the packaging is fun.  I can't wait to start designing.

Macro Sunday and iPad Issues

Back in the swing with macros and Lori at Studio Waterstone.

Come take a look and add a photo of your own if so inclined.

Sorry for being so late with this post but I received a new iPad mini for Valentine's Day.  I promptly uploaded all my pictures and then couldn't figure out how to write my blog and post pictures from it.  Turns out "there is an app for it."  I had to purchase BlogTouch because the free Blogger app was useless as far as I could tell. 

I would love to hear from others that use the iPad for blogging.  What do you use and how do you like it?  Also do you have any tips and tricks to share for the iPad?

Finally on Facebook

With a little nudge from my DD, I finally have a page on Facebook for my beads and jewelry.  She is a marketing major and so I hope to use all her newly acquired knowledge.  Good idea?  I think so.

I would love it if you hop on over there and give me a "like".  Then you will be able to see the latest going on in my studio. 

Hope you are busy creating,

2013 Mystery BOM or Two

I have started a Block of the Month project with a local quilt shop.  Here is my first block.

I have wanted to do a BOM for quite a while and now is the time.  I am also going to try to do the BOM with my local quilt quild.  Both of these quilts are Mystery BOM projects. 

The funny thing is that the first block for each is quite similar - lots of half square triangles.  For the block above, the red and tan fabrics were chosen for us.  For the one below, we make our own choice of fabric and I have gone in a very different direction.  I have chosen to start with bright pink and white. 

My plan is to later integrate black or gray in the quilt.  It will depend on what the next block/s look like.  Be sure to come back and see my progress each month.

Until time to work on the next blocks, I will be working on beads and jewelry.

Bead Soup Party Partners

The  Bead Soup Party, hosted by the lovely Lori Anderson, has begun.  I just received the name of my Bead Soup partner and it is Barbara Mason. She is lucky enough to be at the Tucson Gem Show so we may be a little late getting our bead soups exchanged.  That's good for me as I am running a little behind. So what's new there? 
The first reveal is set for March 30, the second reveal (that's mine) will be on April 6, and the last one will be April 13.  So I hope you will take time to visit as many of the blogs as you can and see the variety of creations that come out of this event.  It should provide a lot of inspiration.

Quick Valentine Project

Do you need a quick Valentine project?  How about a Heart bookmark?

Isn't that sweet?  Well just go over to Sew Many Ways for the tutorial to make this cutie.  It really is easy. 

And while you are there, you may just want to follow Karen's blog.  I especially like her feature called Tool Time Tuesday.  Even if you don't sew, she has great ideas for looking at everything you see in a new way.  She can take most anything and turn it in to a useful item, even a chicken feeder?  Yes, a chicken feeder.  After reading Tool Time Tuesday, you will never look at anything the same and the ideas can be useful in many different projects from beading to wirework to painting.  You name it.
