It has been a very long time since I participated in a blog hop.
An international move was a real upset to my creative mojo.
My new space is ready for work.
Doesn't look much different than my set up in Oki does it?
This time it's not crammed in front of a door in my bedroom.
I have my own space.
And Boy! What a lot of space.
Yep, I'm the luckiest girl in the world.
(Please feel free to share your ideas to finish the space.)
I swear my space must be too clean or something because all I do
is work on a small project, finish it and clean it up.
That is NOT my process.
I've been creating since I was little girl, and for as long
as I've had a stash (or hoard) of crafting supplies
I sit down to start a project and by the middle
I've pulled supplies for at least 3 more projects and
by the end I've probably already finished a smaller project or two
that I hadn't even thought of when I sat down.
THAT is how I work.
I hope it's how I will eventually work here.
I have high hopes.
When we first moved in (a month before our furniture arrived)
one of my father-in-laws brought me an assortment of plastic beads.
I sat with them completely zoned in until this happened.
Oh geese, enough about me.
Why are we here? The fantastic Lori has brought us all together again.
To finally use all those amazing beads we keep looking at, but never use.
Boy do I have those, but with holidays surrounding today I took a more sentimental approach.
I have a only two dear friends who send me beads. One sent me a collection of pearls years ago.
So I created this perfect accent to my holiday spirit.
I still have 4 more colors to play with so more of Tina's pearls are in my future
now that they've finally made their way to my bead mat.
My favorite piece for this project was a kit that my husband bought me
for Christmas the first year we were in Oki. Like now
the move had left money really tight, but he found
the money to surprise me.
At the time I thought it was too difficult for me. Honestly it probably was.
I'm thrilled to now wear this symbol of my husband's love for me and support of my creativity.
Love those designs that are also gorgeous on the back!
Don't forget to check out the rest of the participants. I'm sure there will be TONS of eye candy.
Head over to Lori's to check out the list. After 4 tries to share the list here with only wonk-a-doodle results so I'm going to just let you use her fully functional list.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm so glad you did.
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
