Fabulous Friday

Any many of you may have noticed there was no post yesterday!  My hubby were supposed to go out to dinner on Wednesday night for our annivasary, but then we went to a movie and since we had an overnight baby sitter we went to a hotel for the night!  It was nice and very QUIET!!  
I have to say, I can’t wait for Monday.  School starts, life gets back to routine and sanity!  This summer has just been crazy!  I don’t think we have ever been this busy or crazy!  
How has your summer gone?  Has it been busy?  Does it ever slow down??  It seems like each time life just raises the ‘craziness’ each time.
Don’t forget about my sale – a few people have taken advantage of it already….
 Happy Anniversary SALE – All items in my studio – 12% off and 12¢ shipping (including Gift Certificates) until the end of August!!! http://ow.ly/64fcG http://ow.ly/i/fPH6 http://ow.ly/i/fPHb
I have heard from may of you that you enjoy seeing my ‘work in progress’, so, here we go.  I have been working on my entry into the Artfire Beadweavers Guild current challenge.  I showed you the colors in a post on Monday if you would like to see those, but here is the first 44 rows.  I just love watching the design come into focus!  This will also be a bag/purse and there will be a lot of detail added after too, so please keep watching!!!

Can you see it?  Can you invision what it will look like yet?  

Today I have a ‘beachy’ studio to feature!!  This wonderful artist was in the gift industry, first owning a corporate gift company,  then starting beachgrasscottage from her passion and love of beaches.  With morning trips to find little ‘bits’ of the shore she brings the beach into your home.  These creations are both beautiful and functional!  Please go check out Ms. Curtiss’ studio and let her know where you heard about her.  There are more places to find her listed below too!
Today I want to feature one of my favorite artists, as well!!  This little gal is just amazing!!  I love that she also shows her process on each piece of art that she creates.  You can find many of her creations at popartminis or just follow her Blog to see each creation come alive and its inspiration.
Here are today and the weekends hops!  Join me??
For many of us the summer is almost over, but the fall is yet to come!  Make sure you take time to ‘smell’ the flowers of the seasons!  ~KM
