Blogging from A-Z || X || X
X is for x-claimation points - of which I admittedly overuse!!! (I can't help it - they are such wonderful x-pressions of enthusiasm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
X is also for x-cited! Which I am for many reasons!
The first is that I finally saw the Bead & Button spread, featuring one of the squares I contributed!
Bead Soup on new years day. The store's owner, Kathy, generously donated kits for beaders to create Baltimore orioles (see them in the spread?!) What great energy there was that day!!!
I was also rather x-cited to see some of the patterns I created for use on this project, have been used! It's such a great project, and I can't wait to see what the theme will be for next year!
Also x-citing, is that the focals came for the next challenge! I have plenty to go around this time.
Here is an x-clusive sneak peek!
I am going to start putting kits together this week. I think the cost will be around $4 for this challenge kit. If you are interested in participating, feel free to sign up for the challenge kit newsletter (there's a widget on the left side bar - if you participated last time- you're already on the list!) Kits will be available for purchase May 8, with a reveal date of June 25.
And finally another x-citing thing is that the Beading Babes reveal is this Sunday. I have two pieces done, but like many of the other Babes, I am still working on my trellis rope.
Wow - I can't believe there are only two letters left for the A-Z challenge!!!
