What do you think? I love this bracelet but my nephew says it is too much. I made it with
hundreds of twisted green matte bugles and shorter straight black bugles and it is so soft and comfortable too. My daughter gave me the beautiful irredescent button to close it with. What a fun look! I think it looks like a wooly worm so that is what I have been calling it.
I think I told you I will be having a bazaar/open house sometime in November and I have been forcing myself to lay down the beads and get busy on numerous ideas that are rolling around in my head. I ran onto a gal named Dawn Edmundson who has a blog called "The Feathered Nest" and she has such good ideas that I love so she says to use them and I sure have been busy. I went to Value Village in Buford and got these trays to try out a new technique she uses. I absolutely love love love anything Victorian and this is what I came up with. It takes hours for me to decide what to use. What do you think? Too much? Someone will like them, I am sure. I really like the way the lady came out. There is a clock face hanging from the bow but I am not sure you can see it very well.
There is a scripture (1 Thessalonians 4: 11&12) that means alot to me. I borrowed this idea from Dawn too but it seemed to fit.
"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."
This one is my very favorite tray and I do not care if it sells. It matches my bedroom so well.
Isn't she a sweet little girl? I have, since taking this picture added a row of seed pearls between the small ribbon row and the large one. I think it added just a touch more elegance.
I am now covering cigar boxes for Christmas packages. Plus I made about two dozen cards this week. I will have to show them to you later because I have got to get to work again. Have a wonderful creative day!
