Tole Painting Birds (working wall art), Red Cloisonne Set, Support Red Cross Raffle, 12th BeadALong and Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate GiveAWay

Well, it is WEDNESDAY! Yep, another ‘middle of the week’ day! I love these quiet school days….I can bead and be ‘calm’!! This morning I am going to be working on my Tole Painting inspired wall art again!! I really get a kick out of showing off my working photos.  Not sure if you like watching them, but for me it is an ‘awe ha’ moment when I post the photos…it really shows me how far I have gotten.  When I bead I look at each bead and maybe the row before (just to make sure my count is right).  But, I don’t look at the ‘big picture’ that much!  Even when I take the working photos I am looking to make sure I have ONLY the art in the photo, it has good lighting and that there isn’t something else showing.  I don’t really look at the art until I post the photo on the sites.  Then I see the row count and the bead count…and I am just amazed!!  I ‘SEE’ the art!  Do YOU ever have this happen when YOU are working on something? Well, I am kicking off this morning at 193 rows and 12, 738 beads!! WOW!!! Remember that you can check out my Facebook Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page throughout the day to watch updates and working photos.

I started this raffle with the thought that I could raise some money for the Red Cross and GiveAWay some of my creations to someone….but at this point…I am shocked!! Yes, SHOCKED!!  I have only sold a couple of tickets, and those were to family!!! I am not sure if this will really raise money for the Red Cross now!! I am just glad that I set a minimum…that way I can save or sell the creations at another time!!  If you DO want tickets, just send the money via PayPal to  I wont cancel the raffle until the end date, because I am still hopeful that people are just waiting for ‘payday’!! 🙂

Today’s new listing is simple and elegant!!  Just look at it!!!

Just think….YOU can make this bracelet!!  You’ll get all the supplies and the videos to make it!! Who would YOU give it to for Christmas…or would YOU keep it for yourself?? 🙂
