Micheal’s beading Challenge Blog Hop

When, I seen that Heather Powers and Lorelei Eurto were having a beading challenge using beads that just so happened to be 40% off at Micheal’s…I had to get in on that sweet action!

You could only use the 7 beads they selected from Micheal’s plus two other bead types and your choice of pendant. When I create a piece, I really have to connect with the beads. So, I spend a lot of time just look at them…sketching out ideas before I every get busy with them.  I knew for the pendant, I wanted to use one of the recycled game piece pendants that I make. As, luck had it I had one in my stash that was perfect with the colors.

Here is what I came up with: A breathe of glamour

Of course, I need a sweet little part of earrings to go with this necklace too!

Recycled art- belt bracelets and paper bead earrings

Hello Everyone,

Happy Monday day Morning :) To start the week off, I thought I would show you what I have been up too! It is no secret that I LOVE repurposing things. You know my motto- recycle, repurpose, and reuse.

So, when Christy Tomlinson was offering an online class on turning old belts into bracelets. I had to join the class. It has been fun for the boys and I to thrift shop for belts.

Here are a few that I have made.

I am sad that I can’t make anymore bracelets until I get more snaps. I ordered more this weekend. Making these is so addicting!

The next thing in my recycled bag of tricks is paper bead earrings. What I did with these two pairs of earrings is gelli art print some for the boys old homework.  I love these earrings since they are super light weight and so pretty!

Hope you have enjoyed seeing my recycled projects! STAY GREEN, my friends!

Sunday Mornings

Today, I am here to share with you a painting I did after taking Mindy Lacefield’s  Sunday Morning class.  In this class you drew your inspiration from God’s word. It was about connecting your painting to your feelings of faith.

We were to find a bible verse that you like and paint that scene. I have always found comforter in Ephesian 5:8 “For at one time you were the darkness but now you are the light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.”

Gelli Arts Print- Cat

I spent some time down in my studio. I just wanted to play. One of first loves is collage. I have been thinking about doing a cat collage for a while so here he is.

The other thing I have been thinking about is “being yourself”. Learning to love the person you are and not changing so other people will love you.  I read this online- One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.  Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love the real you. You shouldn’t have to change who you are to be around certain people! God made you the way you are for a reason and loves you just the way you are….we all have different talents…we are all a work in progress (WIP). Celebrate the true you! catgelliprintbycs copy catgelliprintcloseup copy How we should treat others…framedbeyourselfquote   Thanks for stopping in…hope you enjoyed my post! Hugs, signk

Bead Soup Blog Party 8th

Good Saturday Morning everyone-

I am finally here ( after a week delay) with the reveal of my bead soup. This was such a fun project. You swapped beads with a partner that Lori paired you up with mine was Klaudete Koon and then you have to make something with the beads you received from you partner. Technical just the clasp and focus have to be used.

I made a necklace, bracelet and 3 pairs of earring with all the goodies Klaudete sent me. I add some of my own beads to the mix as well. Since there are so many blog to drool over- I am going to keep this short and sweet.
