Doing the Happy Dance!

In case you're wondering, my OWOH post is HERE.

OK, so sometimes the little things get me excited.  I spent a bit of time on my torch yesterday - for the first time in I can't remember how long.  I didn't make a lot of beads, just the beads that I wanted for my big felting project.  This morning when I fetched them out of the kiln, I was very pleased that my project can now move on to completion!  Although I can't let the cat out of the bag yet, I will give you a sneak preview of what I'll be putting on the project.  Here is one of the beads that came from yesterday's session.  Isn't he cute?


I'm hoping to finish up the project by the end of this evening so I can get it photographed tomorrow - time is running short!

In other project news, I'm still trucking along on January's BJP "page".  Trucking very slowly, I might add.  I took the project with me to LA, but each night when I got back to my hotel room I was just to whooped to look at little seed beads.  So now I'm way far behind and the year-long project is just beginning.  I was afraid this was going to happen - but that's OK, I'll get there.  I worked on it a tiny bit more last night.


Right now, though, I'm off to tech land while I knock out 3 or 4 loads of laundry.  My accounting project is calling me...

And it's time for YOU to go have a happy and creative day!

Aw, thank you - you folks are too sweet! I made my very first one on Monday but its wings were way too big. So I made 3 of them yesterday, which I will use on my felt project. Who knows, I just may start making "sculptural" beads - I've had a lot of requests for Jack Russell beads. LOL! (It was very challenging though...)

That bead is fabulous. So novel, and very realistic. I really love the way you captured the wings, Shirley. Lovely!
