Marvelous Monday 3/11/12

What a weekend!  I always seem to have so much to catch up with when I start my Marvelous Monday posts, and this week it no different.  I did so many things this weekend with my family, and still got time to bead too!  I worked on a new necklace that started out with these ‘possibilities’ for beads – 
I wasn’t sure if I would stick to these colors or not when I started, but after a few tries, here is what I came up with….
My Flower Girl – Ailani – Necklace
I truly like this one.  I have named her Ailani, for some reason I think of Hawaii when I look at it and so I found a Hawaiian name to match!
Then there is my Swap partner over at Georgia Mountain Arts.  She and I are swap’n beads and findings for our ArtFire Beadweavers Guild Bead Swap.  Here is a photo of what I sent her.  I hope she has fun with it!!  I should be receiving mine in the next day or so…. I am so excited!!
My dear friend Ms. Lori from Par-O-Dice Creations gave me another one of her great sets of booties to list for her, they are sooooo cute! Please go check my studio for more photos, these are not only cute they can fit up to a toddler.
And now, for a featured artist.  Today it is ChristinaColwell.  This wonderful artist has drawing and painting ‘in her blood’.  You can tell by the bright colors and great expression in her art that her life is sunny and happy.  Please go check out her studio and please, remember to support all handmade artist.
As a closing thought I would like to say;
Whoever is happy with make others happy too.

    It always amazes me how beautiful your work turns out from those pieces photos to the final work-I really like this latest necklace of yours, too 🙂

    I have a feeling it won’t last in your shop very long 😉

    Hope the rest of your week is a good one!
