I'm trying again

I had this all lined up nice, written well, then went and lost it. How often do I do that? Arghhh, much too often.

Anyway, here are my messy piles of works in progress! It's fun sometimes to take these pictures and see what you've done with your work, can you tell I've been flitting from one project to another?
The BFAC ball is there, the beave, and the other BFP. I see Nanabush and I see some odd beads that really should be running home by now.

Here is my Canadian Beaver. This BFP is month April. Thanks to That Bad Liz - I love the Moose and the Dragon and her style and wanted to try it. Of course, I have to do the edges of course. I really like the beaver! He's cool! He looked like a groundhog until I put his tail on, it's amazing how similiar those animals look. I used a piece of leather for the tail.

I finally picked up some Grunge board. I'm going to see if I can bead it. You can't see it here, cause it's down in the art room but I was so excited to finally get my hand on some!

I am almost finished my May page too. It's been very intuitive and I'm just at the stage where I need to stare at it and see if there is something else I want to add to it.

Then my March page. It's got the outline beaded and I hope to finish it this weekend. I have to, have to, HAVE TO!!!! finish my BFAC first!

Alright! Time to go! Have a Great Day Everyone!!!

Will there be 2 or 3?

Beading For A Cure!
I was inspired by some children's toys. My daughter won them for me at her local school fun fair fish pond so I opened them up, took out the foam, cleaned and dyed them and then stuffed them with new polyfill. Oh and then the fun began! I outlined the edges and then filled in each side!

Oh this was fun and it's not finished!!! I want to make three if I can get enough beads and thanks to some wonderful amazing women at All About Beads, there are some in the mail to me.
If it's not three, sitting nicely in a bowl to be played with, it could be two - like fuzzy dice hanging from a rear-view mirror!

I hope to make each side different and I added the yellow/lime beads as my extra bead.
I'm still beading my BJP and there will be pictures soon. I just got inspired by the BFAC beaded juggling balls and there is a deadline!

In other news, I'm not working. It didn't work out so I'm looking for work again. That means more time for beading!

Enjoy!!! Denise
