Good Morning and Happy Friday 🌞 ☀️!! It’s been another creative & productive week for me😃. Not only have I been able to finish the BIG creation that I have been working on for the past few weeks, but I got to start a new WIP!! This week, I also have gotten the chance to create new pattern listings as well as jewelry listings!! And with all that going on…can you believe I finished crocheting another blanket?!?! I have all of that to show you as well as an update from my K~Max Klub and the information for the re-visit kits this month…only a few more days left!! The 28th of June is the last day to get those kits!! A lot to share…so time to get the ball rolling and the beads sparkiling😁.
The first thing I’d like to start off with this week are the updates for the WIP’s. It’s been a few weeks since I started my BIG creation…and I can finally say IT IS FINISHED!!! Monday-Wednesday I started and finished up getting the straps , earrings, and adding the clasp on. Then it was time for photos…it was easy to get photos of the earrings but unfortunately not for the necklace…I need to wait for better light and perhaps use my daughter to model it…so this will have to be shown another time😊. But I will have the working photos to show you and the sneak peak at the earrings!! Did you see it?!?! I have finally chosen a name for this creation…I am calling it ‘Lace and Rainbow I’ve’!!! Another bit of exciting news about this creation…it is being entered into a contest!!! I am excited and thrilled how it all came out😊.
Next I have the New WIP that I have been working on since Wednesday. This WIP is being created with a focal piece from Wildlife Plastics!! It will be a fun a quick creation compared to my last one😉. As always, the deatails in the carving of the unicorn and the star are AMAZING!! To start this one off I decided to go with 11/0 & 15/0 in whites and then later on added 11/0 yellow beads…and then to take it farther, I added a yellow/gold tone Swarovski crystals to the fringe😁. Wednesday I did the main step by building the walls up and around and also put a layer around those walls to come back to for the fringe I have planned! Thursday I spent the day adding the rest of the details(yellow beads) to the bezel and starting the fringe and bail for the strap! Today I am starting off with the herringbone strap and should be able to finish by the end of the day!!…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!
Now I have Five New Jewelry Listings to show you for this week-one for each day!! Some are fun and cute and one of them is a simple, elegant, & classy set😃. These listings are all of jewelry that has been strung and designed by me… I believe there’s a little something for everyone I am sure!! To find out more about each one-just click on each listings links and it’ll tell you more about each piece!
The first listing is from Monday!! It is the simple, elegant, & classy ‘Marcasite Drops & Gemstones’ Necklace set…Enjoy😃
The next listing is from Tuesday and is one of the cute and fun bracelets!! It is the ‘Teal, Red, & Ivory Gemstones with Scissor charm…Enjoy😃.

Before I go on to show you the New Pattern Listings…let me give you an update about my K~Max Klub news about previous bead-alongs that we have been doing for the past month or so😁. Everyone is doing them in their own time and there’s no rush to get them done…I just want everyone to have fun!! So while everyone keeps working on them I will post any updates that members post in the Klub here too!! One of my members(Kathleen N Doug)recently posted her finished work on the ‘Baby Block’ pattern bead-along…I think it turned out GREAT!! I am going to share her photo with you all in a moment…but first, I wanted to remind everyone I am planning another Bead-along for July…so keep an eye out on the Klub page for more info to soon follow😃
On to the New Pattern Listings!! A lot of my new pattern listings are inspired by kawaii drawings of character we all love!! Some are 5×7 and some are 8×10 and some even are in both sizes!! Then there are a few bracelet patterns and even a big art pattern in 11×16 size!! I will post the listing with the link to find out more about them…Enjoy and if you’d like me to create a special pattern for you…just send me a pm or an email😃.
Another fun update on my other passion…crocheting!! I was working on a gift for my daughter’s friend and I finally finished that this week too!! I really loved working on this ‘Peacock’ inspired blanket and can’t wait to gift it😃!! What do you all think…does it resemble a Peacock to you? I have more in the works…and will share them when I finish more!!
