Weekend Re-Post from

Marvelous Monday,July 18, 2011

Oh my goodness, what a weekend it was!  Aye got home about 630 Friday night and it was already raining!  The rain stayed through Saturday evening!  For me, that meant that I just HAD to stay inside and bead…..oh darn!?!  I worked on a couple more custom orders and actually got them done!!  YA HOOO!  Then I started this one…  
As I am sure you can see, this is a Reggae themed item, but I’ll leave it as that!  I want to tease you a little an see if you can guess!  I’ll be posting update on my fan page too, if you want to watch this develop!! 
Then there is my Creations Color Challenge entry!  Here is what I came up with.  I am actually very happy with it!  At first, I have to say, it was hard for me to do.  My girlfriend told me it was because I do creations that are so organized – and this bracelet is NOT!  But, I am glad I stuck with it….I really do love the end result!  What do you think?
Today’s featured artist is someone that puts my busy, creative life, to shame!  This wonderful artist, RustyReindeer,  has three main focus’s for her art (you’ll have to read her bio to find out what they are)!  Looking out her wall of windows in her Northern New Mexico home gives her endless inspiration.  I have to say, that the philosophies by which she works should be ALL of ours!  Here they are:
My philosophies:
1) Gifts should be given from the heart and they should mean something; they should be special, artful, purposeful. Don’t waste your money and give one unless it’s the right one.
2) I want my customers to be pleased, and I want them to know I’m there for them when they need something special, something fast, something unique.
3) Produce quality work.
4) Be honest and do business with integrity.
5) Always improve!
Please go visit her studio and see all the wonderful creations.  This is just ONE of the bracelets that I fell in love with!
For any of you that love to LOOK at color, CREATE with color or just be INSPIRED by color really need to check out this wonderful blog.  design-seeds
OK, for today I want it simple, KISS SOMEONE YOU LOVE!!

    I have recently become obsessed with design seeds. I even based the color scheme for our home library on one of the wonderful schemes from design seeds.
