What's so fun, you ask?! For starters, Erin over at Treasures Found::Inspiration is everywhere, is doing story challenge with comments - she began a story and every comment is a continuation of the story. It's so fun, and it's fun to see where the story goes after you add a line! And to top it off, she's doing a giveaway of her Simple Truth's Sampler....the story will be open til tomorrow, so check it out!
Another activity I'm filing under fun, is the wonderful treat I gave myself yesterday! As I've mentioned (probably ad nauseum), I work full time. But I am quite blessed to have found work that I do from home, so the truth is, my schedule is very flexible, as long as I'm getting my work done!
A few weeks ago I put it on my calendar, to spend some time at Bead Soup (in Savage, MD), during their Wednesday beading circle. So, yesterday, I packed up my Beading Babes' Four Leaf Clover project and headed out to Bead Soup! All the ladies that I've met over there are just lovely (and they do beautiful beadwork!). While it is a treat to spend time with ALL the wonderful Maryland beaders, Maryanne of Zingala's Workshop also planned to do some beading there yesterday! She is so nice and so fun to hang out with! Doesn't it look like we're having a good time?!?!
Bead Soup, in Savage Mill. There is a great energy at the store, very welcoming, encouraging and interesting....and she's got a great selection of beads at her store. I treated myself to a handful of 3mm pearl strands, for my second Four Leaf Clover cuff! That pattern works up really quickly and looks great!
In other Beading Babes news, my Artbeads order came in which has my tilas and 14mm coin beads for the Nefertiti pattern. Now I just need to decide if I want to do my second cuff or my Nefertiti pattern next!
Also in this order are some of the crystals and chatons I need to start working on the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star ornament. I am DETERMINED to get ahead of myself with my holiday beadwork this year!!!
