I've been Tagged....

So 7 things about me that are weird. Hmmmm.... Perhaps I should get some of my friends to write this instead as I'm sure they could come up with a few things.

1. I'm known as the trouble maker. I can definitely design michief. Or maybe it's that I like to laugh. And I will say things to encourage others to laugh. Just to get that look of boredom of their face.

2. I love my bed. I love being horizontal. No smirking here!! I could lie for hours reading in bed. And I don't have to get up to pee before I do it. I can even drink coffee and not get up to pee. Being horizontal is awesome!

3.I like to eat cherry pie filling on plain biscuits. Or even just from the can. Enough said?

4. I've been watching General Hospital since I was like 12. Is that really 30years? Oh man!

5. I like a 20 minute nap. I really like a 20 minute nap.

6. I like to blow my breath into the belly of my cat and make her fur all warm. She hasn't figured out if she likes it or not. My male cat doesn't like it at all. But he does like to sit on the furnace vent and have the hot hair blow up his butt. He is too funny.

7. Hmm. I love the smell of the air caught between my screen door and the regular door. I like this smell when it's been all warmed up by the sun. It reminds me of when I was a kid.

Since I've seen this all over, I don't feel compelled to tag people. It's too funny to ready how interesting we really are and what turns our cranks!
Cheers, Denise

2x2 square

This little square will be in the mail very soon! There is another one around here, it is being elusive though, so I have no picture.

BJP Project update

This is the finished Paisley page.

Here are two close photos of the felted and beaded page. This was fun. I enjoyed playing witht the colour of the felt and the texture that the beads added. I also tried to learn more about perspective and laying out a landscape. Still new at this and still trying out new ideas.

I have to confess, I had this finished in February because I had a craving for colour. I beaded this coloured flag and it was fun and bright and vibrant. The little lizard dude is actually from the Dominican Republic from a trip a few years ago and made its way onto the page quite nicely.
The flower is actually a felt ball cut in half and then beaded. I then sewed it onto the page. It actually has quite a bit of dimension and works well with the lizard dude cause they both are quite big. This page speaks volumes about my need for the sun!

What am I doing with these...

I am trying to find a way to put it all together to make a necklace that is pretty and fun and tactile!
I am not having as much luck as I struggle to decide which stitch, which design, which layout.
I love pearls and amber together. Then I found this piece of shell and put it together as a pendant to anchor the amber and the pearls but still no idea what to do with all those beads!!!
Suggestions would be a great idea.

Hmmmmm..... Good with Corona I guess!

You Are A Lime Tree

You are intelligent, hard working, and innately successful.
You try to change what you can in life - and you accept what you can't change.
Tough on the outside, you are actually soft and relenting.
Jealous at times, you are extremely loyal and giving to those you love.
You have many talents, but you don't have enough time to use them.
