Good Morning ☀️ & Happy Friday!! We made it through another week!! I hope you all have had a wonderful week…I have been having a bit of a rough week dealing with allergies and had to take a day off on Wednesday, but I still managed to keep pushing though and be creative!! I was able to finish one WIP and begin another. Then I was able to create and put up in my shop 2 New listings this week and even hold a contest on my fan page😃. I also will have some updates from news and pictures on my K~Max Klub to share with you all, then last but not least, I have May’s available beading kits to show you! Let’s get this day started shall we?!?!
Let’s start off a bit differently….I mentioned above I held a contest right? Let me tell you a little bit about it and the fact that we have a winner-yay!!!-was it you? So, yes, I held a contest for anyone who wanted to be put into a drawing to win a copy of Lisa Wingate’s “Before We Were Yours” book and the contest is over and we have a winner….drum roll please…Ms. Goodwin!! Congratulations 🎉 Ms. Goodwin!! Your book will be on its way to you soon😁. Now for those of you who might have missed this contest/giveaway, keep an eye out on my fan page…I will be holding another for the 2nd book in this series from Lisa Wingate!!
Now, how about we talk about the updates for the WIP’s of the week? This week I started off by continuing on the May 2020 sample of the Bright Butterfly Bracelet for May’s Peyote bracelet kit that I started at the end of last week. I started off on Monday already being almost halfway done with 80 rows and 1,140 beads done! The colors on this butterfly are nice and bright and hopefully will brighten up your day like it did mine, while working on it! The colors are even more spectacular in person😉. I kept working through Tuesday and Wednesday on it and finished it and was even able to get pictures done for the listing! And since I finished with that one…I started a new WIP Thursday morning!! I started working on May’s sample of the Art in a bag Kit…a 4×4 Art that is cute and bright! By the way…the colors being used in this pattern are some of the new neon Delica colors!! Aren’t they wonderful?!?! As of Thursday night, I was able to get to row 25 with 950 beads!! I was able to do a little more on it last night before heading to bed so today, I will be starting off on row 30 with 1,140 beads put in😃. 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!
Hmm…should I show you a listing now?!?! Yes…I think I will😃. Let me show you the new listing from Monday! It is of the ‘Butterfly and Heart’ Beadwoven Bag. This cute & fun listing is actually from a bead-along from my K~Max Klub!! I decided to do this for fun and something a little different then the norm that I usually do😉. The bag itself was made by doing a 2drop Peyote strip then zipping up the sides together on either side of the strip, then I added loops to attach a strap to it. The strap is made from Swarovski crystals in reds, purples & pinks to match colors in the pattern of the bag and then added agate gemstone beads. This will make a perfect gift to keep it to give to carry an ID, License, cards, notes, money…you name it😉. It looks small but you would be surprised at what could fit in there!!
Next, before showing you the other new listing for this week, let me tell you about what has been going on in my K~Max Klub😁. For the past few weeks I have been doing some fun bead-alongs with the members…if you are a member, it is free to join along in the bead-along…all you need is your own beads, needle and choice of thread and then I supply the pattern for 3-5 days and at the end of the bead along I supply the members with the entire pattern😃. The first bead along we did was of a bracelet with a silhouette…there are members still working on this one and as they finish I will post pictures of their completed works here on the blog😉. The second bead along we did was of the Butterfly and Heart Bag…a few members have finished with this one too so I will share what they have completed as well! As I keep getting pictures on of completed works or partials I will share them here in the blog….meanwhile, I have new news for the K~Max members!! I will be planning another bracelet bead along…this one will be single drop…for next week. Are you all ready?!?! Stay tuned to the Klub page to find out more😉. If you are not a member but are interested in becoming a member, just give me a message to find out how you can join!!
Now, let me show you and tell you about the other new listing for the week! This listing was posted up on my fan page on Thursday…it is ‘May 2020 Bright Butterfly’ sample from the Peyote Bracelet Kit!! It’s amazing!! This one already sold!! It is so bright and beautiful, and will soon be on its way to its new home!!
