Marvelous Monday 8/13/12

Is it really Monday already?  Where did the weekend go??  Please come back, I missed you all together!?!?!  Oh well, it is time to start the ‘last week of summer’ for us.  Next week….kids will be back in school!  I am not sure if I am more happy or more sad… I think it will be ‘minute by minute’!!  
In between all the craziness this weekend I did manage to start a new project… we’ll see how it turns out…. here are the colors I picked…

Yes, yes, yes, it is teal… I thought I was done, but I guess I wasn’t!  I have had this stone for some time and for one reason or another (probibly because it was teal) I felt drawn to it, so it is on my tray right now…. I didn’t take a LOT of photos of the ‘working’ process, but I’ll show you what I have later!


Now many of you saw the big reveal, but because it was over the weekend I wanted to make sure that everyone got a chance to see it…. Here is the bead soup that I was sent:

and here is what I made with it:

So, please click on either of the photos and go see all the other photos and all the other people that were involved in the #beadsoupblogparty.

Oh boy, do I have a GREAT featured artist for you today – madamepomm !!!!  Now this artist  is just amazing!!  Taking a plain cup/mug and adding something that is just simply amazing!!! Can you imagine what it would be like to drink a cup of coffee while you are sharing it with a SNAKE?@?!  There are MANY animals and creatures to choose from and because they are all handmade they are all one-of-a-kind!  Please go visit this studio and remember to support handmade artist!

I’ll leave you with this thought for today…

    I love the colors you’ve chosen for your next project. Can’t wait to see what you do with that focal. Will definitely come back for the reveal. Speaking of reveals, you couldn’t have found a better way to accentuate the focals in your Bead Soup necklaces. I’m really into neutrals right now, so thought that would be my favorite…until I saw the purple!

    Those colors you chose for your newest venture are beautiful-I do quite love teal so I’m excited to see what you come up with! 🙂

    That mug is pretty neat!! I went on both of her sites though and it looks like she only does dog breeds? I couldn’t find anything else. Weird.

    I like the quote you chose for today; I might steal it for next Inspirational Tuesday 🙂
