Ever have one of those days. You know the kind - when the beads you have chosen will not play well together and the crimps! Well they just won't crimp.
This was my experience this week as I was getting ready for all the fun today. You see, I just wanted to give the Beads my partner, Sarah, sent me, some love through good designs.
Alright everyone, gather round. Time to grab your favourite cuppa (tea, coffee, other beverage) and get cozy.
First, let me tell you about my charms. You saw a sneak peek here. Did you guess what they are yet? No?!?
Let me introduce my Magic Wands:
The theme for the Art Charm Swap as chosen by Jen over at Glass Addictions is.....
SO MUCH FUN!
Castles, princesses, magic and wicked queens, oh my!
Fairy Tales for me have always had an abundance of magic and wonder, but also a large dollop of creepiness.
As mentioned in this post, I joined an Art Charm swap this year.
Our hostess, Jen Cameron over at Glass Addictions, put out the call back in May for artisans to participate in the swap and auction for Beads of Courage. She then gathered all our charms, divided them up and sent a new package back out to each of us.
What was on my worktable this wednesday?
This is the result of working on my art charms (mailed last Monday) amidst other unfinished projects. I am afflicted with clutter and what apprears to be complete chaos, especially when working to a deadline.
I joined an Art Charm swap and auction. The auction goes to benefit Beads of Courage - a wonderful charitble organization started by a PhD Nursing student in Arizona with the mission of "Caring for children coping with serious illness, their families and clinicians by helping them to RECORD, TELL and OWN their story of COURAGE through beads."
Life is a journey. To me, it's like a spiral. Forever unfurling, yet returning to spaces and places that are familiar, yet somehow different.
Unfurling this website is like that. Similar. But different. Restored vitality and youthfulness.
New. Yet Familiar.
It's all fun and games until you make a new website....
Obviously under construction. My camera battery died, so no new photos for the time being.
Information, policies and store items to come.
And remember - patience IS a virtue. (wink, wink)
