Good Morning & Welcome to another Friday Blog Post!! ☀️ 🌞. This week, I slowed down just a bit😉…to get some awesome pictures for the Lace & Rainbow Ice listing as well as for the Yellow Unicorn listing! I started a new WIP this week…have you all noticed I am on a Disney kick with new patterns in my shop?!?! Well my new WIP is one of those😁. Besides that, I have new listings, some news from the Klub, & new kits for July to share with you all😃. So, what do you say…shall we get the beads going?!?!
Let’s start today off a little bit differently 😃. I knows lot of you have been waiting to see the final pictures of my really big creation of the ‘Lace & Rainbow Ice’ wearable art necklace & earring set…so I will start the day off with that!! This creation was created with peyote stitch and herringbone stitch with no use of any glue whatsoever 😉. All the findings on this creation are Sterling Silver. I am really excited about this creation because…it has been entered into an International Competition!! To find out more about this beautiful and intricate creation…just click on the image/links😃. Enjoy!!
Time to talk about the WIP’s of the week!! Since finishing the Yellow Unicar up on Monday, I got to start a new WIP!! As I have mentioned…I am on a Disney kick at the moment and have created several new patterns of Kawaii Art Inspired Disney characters😁. This week, I have started on a ‘Moana’ 5×7 Kawaii Art! Some of you may ask…what is Kawaii Art? It means…Giant eyes, round shapes, and simplistic features to list a few hallmarks of one of the cutest forms of art!! It’s known as ‘Kawaii’ which comes from the Japanese word for cute and it has been adopted into a subculture that can be found worldwide 😃. Now knowing about the background of this art form let me tell you about my progress on Moana!! I started out on Monday and worked through the day and then a little bit more before heading to bed, and by Tuesday morning, I had completed 35 rows and had 1,680 beads put into this creation! Throughout Tuesday I kept working on it and was able to put in a good 20 more tries for a total of 55 done and 2,640 beads put in. It takes time because I like to pull out the beads for 5 rows at a time which means I’m pulling about 240 beads out every 5 rows each time😁. Any-who, by Wednesday evening I had 90 rows complete with 4,320 beads…that is a lot and I’m not even half way😂. Thursday morning, I started the day off with 115 rows (I managed to work on it a little before going to bed) and 5,530 beads. I worked throughout yesterday-pulling those rows and managed 20 rows before I had to put it aside…ending at 135 rows!! I wasn’t sure if I was going to work on it anymore last night, but I was able to put in another 15 rows…so that means today I am starting the day off with 150 rows and 7,200 beads!😁! I might be able to get it done today or maybe over the weekend…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!
How about another new listing?!?! The next new listing I have for you all this week is the ‘Yellow Unicorn’ wearable art necklace w/ center from Wildlife Plastics!! I finished this one up last Friday and on Monday was able to get some good photos to create the listing 😃. A bright, fun, & beautiful creation that can be worn almost anytime of the year for fun or even to dress up an outfit!! 😉. You can learn more about it by clicking on the photo/link…Enjoy!!
Before I show you the last new listing of the week, let me give you all some news from the K~Max Klub😃. I am still in the planning phase of the Bead-along for July that I am going to do with you all!! Very soon I will have more information about it ready and will post it in the Klub page!! For now, I have some members who have posted pictures of works they created from my previous kits or from new patterns in my shop to share with you all and hopefully inspire you like they do me😊. Just recently, Karen Roberts posted a picture of her final creation from a Tiger in water bracelet kit-that is no longer available-and I must say it turned out so wonderful and beautiful!! And then, there was another recent post from Jessica Lane who recently decided to get the kawaii 5×7 inspired Mulan pattern. She beaded the pattern using all the colors suggested in my pattern and has posted a picture of her final work. Another great job done and it is beautiful!! I hope you all know you are more than welcome to post your pictures of your creations whether it is from a bead along or Kit or a pattern-it is very inspiring to see all of your creations for me and keeps me wanting to create more wonderful bead alongs and patterns for you all💕😍.
