Hello and Happy Friday!! 🌞 How is everyone this week?!?! I’m excited…during the past weekend I beaded so much I finished beading the 4 Season sample Art for August’s Kit!! That meant that on Monday I got to start a New WIP!! Can’t wait to tell you a little more about it soon😉. I have some new listings to show you this week…even a new kind of listing!! Not too much going on in my K~Max Klub this week, but I do have a quick update! Then I have the available kits for August for you all-By the way-TODAY is the last day to get these kits for a while until I might do a re-visit in a few months!! I’m excited to get this weeks blog going…although I have to warn you…TODAY (Friday) I will be taking the day off and not starting anything new…but I just had to pop in and give this weeks updates😉
Let’s start today off with a New Listing!! This was Monday’s New listing…and if you’ve been following along with last weeks blog, some of you might already know what this listing will be😉. It’s non other then the Sample from August’s Art una Bag Kit!! I call it ‘4 Seasons Beadwoven 5×7 Wall Art-sample for August 2020 Kit.’ I have to say, this is one of my best yet and one of my all time favorites I have created yet!! It is already to hang up and be displayed in its new forevermore home…sure to attract many eyes and many compliments 💕 Don’t forget…you can also get the kit and make one yourself 😉. Here it is… Enjoy 😉
Now, on to the one and only WIP for this week!! I started on Monday and ended up finishing by Thursday evening before Family night started😃. On Monday I started off with my beads set out and the 3 cabs-1 big one for the necklace and then 2 matching ones to make earrings!! Just looks at those skulls…so feminine😍. I started by building the walls up around the main big cab in a darker shade of pink…thought this time I was going to stay on the front side and tighten first but I ended up going to do the back again first-like always😁. After making sure I had the backside just so…I moved on to the front side and started to pull my front walls tight with 15/0 green seed beads…then it was time to put it down for the night and begin again on Tuesday!! Tuesday I started off by finishing up the front side-tightening up some more with pink 15/0 seed beads…and as I was going along, loving the way it was looking (a little edgy, yet still so beautiful) I decided I had to add a little something special to this cab…some pink flowers!! After getting the flowers on, I decided I wanted to start the herringbone strap😃. I got a decent amount done on the rope and then called it a night to do some family stuff😍. On Wednesday morning, I got right back into my beading and finished up the herringbone rope…just love the way the colors from the strap seem to bring more of the colors out in the center!! After finishing the strap up-it was time to grab one of the smaller cabs and get a start on the earrings! I decided to start out by building up the walls around with a green 11/0 seed bead…by the end of Wednesday, I finished the back of the earring-the front side would have to wait…after all, Wednesday are my BINGO days😃. Thursday morning came and I was refreshed and ready to get the day started and finish up this beautiful and edgy set!! After finishing up the front side of the first earring, I took a small break and decided to add the hanger onto the center to finish up the necklace part before moving on to the second earring. This second earring went even quicker then the first one and by days end…I was able to have the whole set with all working photos done before it was Family Night time…final pictures and listing will have to wait, but for now-here are most of the working photos 😉 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!
Time for something a little Different & New!! Most of you who have been following along with my blog, know that I have a second passion close to my first one of beading-which is crocheting!! I have decided to start selling some of my blankets and have one listed as a new listing for this week!!!! This one is called ‘Blue & Orange (Florida Gator) Crochet Blanket.’ I hope you all like it…Enjoy 😉.
