Good Morning 🌞!! I hope today you have a wonderful day!! I know that many people are staying home and I hope that you find something CREATIVE to do…it will calm your mind and inspire you MORE. For us, it is the 3rd day without school( or spring break- so actually into the second week). We are starting to get into a routine and things are getting done…I am still beading and LOVING it…so…things are going well!!! I hope they are for you as well 😃. As of now I will be trying to do the blog posts 2-3 days if possible a week giving you updates on current projects or projects in the work while showing new listings and available kits in my shop. Of course if there are specials going on I will let you know that as well 😁. I will continue to post on my fan pages every day (unless something comes up) so you can still keep up and follow along on a daily basis😉.
So, let’s start with WIP’s that I have been working on or might have finished as of today. Monday afternoon, if you saw, I had finished working on the Lime Green Creation and saw the last working photos…if not, you can see it here…and it will be one of the new listings I show today😁. Then yesterday I started on a “Orange” creation…made up of 2 different orange Swarovski crystals…also was finished by the end of the afternoon yesterday. It was a really quick work up project but very fun and sparkly…I’ll show you the last working photo of that as well as, later on, it will be another new listing I share. Last but not least as of today, I have pulled out a bright and fun center from Wildlife Plastics to create into something special. So far I have the center and the beads I will use pulled out. Let’s see how far I can get today…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!
Have you all noticed that I am doing a sale until the end of March?!?! Well I am-a Spring Sale!! A lot of my Art shows have been cancelled and so YOU all get to benefit with that with a sale of 35% OFF!! This sale will be going until 3/31/20 and is good for everything except Kits, Patterns, or Clearance.
Now let’s talk about the New Listings I have… I have quite a few that I have put up since the last time I did a blog!! So what I will do is tell you a little bit about each one and put photo/link to each so you can check it out more😉.
One of the New listings is of the sample done from this months Art in a Bag Kit-the 5×7 Silhouette!! This is a work up(2nd one..daughter always claims the first one I make for herself) of the pattern specific to this months kit. A simple yet very elegant silhouette of a woman’s face done in 2 drop peyote and is then glued on to a 5×7 canvas( clear crafting glue like E6000) to hang or display as you’d like.
The next New Listing is of the Lime Green Beadwoven Wearable Art Necklace that I finished up on Monday then listed yesterday! Done in beautiful shades of green I bezeled the stone using peyote and worked the strap in herringbone…light and beautiful for Spring!!
On to the last New Listing!! The Final listing for today is the Bright and Sparkly Orange Swarovski Crystal Beadwoven Bracelet. This was a fun and quick bracelet to make and in wonderful shades of oranges…like a blazing sunset!! To pull it all together, I used a special clasp that I can make the bracelet bigger by adding on more jump rings. Sure to bring anyone sunshine and happiness to the wearer!!
Now, on to the Patterns/Kits for March!! I just can’t believe how wonderfully these turned out😃. This month, I will be doing a Peyote Bracelet in a Box Kit with new pattern( in 2drop peyote) for March and I have decided to change up the Art in a Bag Kit for March a little bit!! Instead of doing a 4×4 Art like I did for the past 2 previous month’s kits, this time I will be doing a 5×7 Art pattern(also in 2 drop peyote)!! Let me go ahead and tell you a little bit more about each individual kit with the important dates for availability 😃.
Let’s start with the Peyote in a Box Kit!! For March’s Kit, I decided to go with a pattern of a beautiful long stem ROSE!! With this kit, each box will contain everything you need to create a Krafty Max Originally designed bracelet: A printed word chart In 2 drop peyote (a color chart can be requested and be sent digitally), a needle, All Delica beads, plated bar ends and findings.

Next, let’s talk about the Art in a Bag Kit for March!! Like I said before, I decided to change it up again…going to do a 5×7 pattern instead of a 4×4 this month!! The New pattern I have chosen for this kit this month is of a beautiful Silhouette of aWoman 😃. This Kit is a Monthly Bag kit from Krafty Max Originals and each Bag kit will contain everything you need to create a Krafty Max Originally designed 5×7 wall art which will contain the following: Printed word chart pattern(in 2 drop peyote), All Delica beads and a 5×7 canvas to mount your finished Beadwoven Art work on.
