Good Morning & Happy Friday!! ☀️ I am popping in quickly to give you all this weeks updates-but my recent 2 days of not being able to sleep well has left me finally exhausted😊 and will be taking the day off and going back to bed! This week has been a very exciting and crazy week for me…what about for all of you?!?! This week I began a new WIP, got my New Kits for September up, got some really exciting news, and was able to complete final pictures for the Skull set and get that listed too!!! Hope you all are being as inspired as I am…but let’s get the beads rolling on this weeks updates😉
Let’s begin today by talking about this week’s WIP I started on Monday 😃. I decided to start a 5×7 Art of a Kawaii Sally…with 5 rows and 240 beads already put in…it was already starting to show some wonderful color!! I worked through Monday…pulling out 5 rows at a time (that’s 240 beads @ a time) and by the days end I had added another 20 rows to the first 5 I started out with, making it 25 rows and 1,200 beads!! Just look at the ‘texture’ already happening!! Before starting out on Tuesday morning…I had managed to get more rows put in, so I started the day off with 40 rows and 1,920 beads…now the scar above her eye is starting to appear😃. By the end of Tuesday, the whites of her eyes 👀 could now be seen at row 60 with 2,880 beads in!! I can just tell from the design that her face is just beautiful-I know it’s crazy, but it is!! When Wednesday morning came around, I was kicking off the day with 80 rows & 3,840 beads…just look at this eyes!! Throughout Wednesday, I kept working along and little by little more of her face was coming along…she actually looks happy at row 105 with 5,040 beads!! That’s where I left off of for Wednesday but came back Thursday morning with 130 rows done!!! Can you tell I had trouble sleeping the night before?!?! That is 25 more rows put in and a total of 6,240 beads put in!!! At that point, you could start to see the dress coming along and the ‘shades & texture’ in her hair-looking so awesome!! I was excited to be working on her bright and colorful dress…managed to get all the way to 150 rows and 7,200 beads put in😁. Had some more trouble sleeping Thursday night and ended up putting in another 25 rows, so by Friday morning I had 175 rows and 8,400 beads put in!! Now, I feel exhausted and I have decided to take a last minute decision and take the day off and try to catch up on some of the sleep I lost😊. But before I do I will show you the weeks working pictures and tell you a little bit about the other stuff going on from this past week😉

How about we move on to a little bit of exciting & other news?!?! The exciting news first…I recently found out that in FMG’s catalogs, my award winning design was featured under the Miyuki Delica section!! I can’t believe it!!!…how exciting is that…I am so happy and very proud😃. Just-WoW!! And on another exciting note…if you have been following along with my weekly blogs….I have been working on a set of 3 crochet blankets to give to a friends little ones…about 2 weeks ago I posted about the 2/3 that were done and today, I can tell you the 3rd one is done and now they are already to be shipped to my friend…and if we are lucky enough-she might even send me pictures to post about them when she receives them!! Let me show you all some pictures!!….of both the design and the finished blanket😉
Now, it is time for the New Listing I have for this week!! This new listing is from last week’s WIP😉…the Skull Set!! I decided on calling it ‘Flowers & Skulls Wearable Art Necklace Set.’ This ser took me all of last week to make and during the weekend time I made sure I had the time to get final pictures to set up the new listing and then I got it listed for Tuesday 😃. I really love how this set turned out…edgy yet beautiful!! -Great for anytime or event😁. Enjoy 😉!!
Time for a quick update from my K-Max Klub!!
