I have been in the midst of a huge project at work that I hope to be finished with by the end of the week (fingers crossed), and have been so freaking tired when I get home. I basically eat, flop on the couch, zone out, and sleep. Still, I have been crafting; knitting on […]Read More Tired and Wired
Beading Night turned out to be a Bracelet Night this week, still with beads, and in my case, charms and a lot of jump rings. I have another Wal-Mart kit for bracelets. It’s pretty cheap and looks cheap, but it’s good practice. Deb, on the other hand, had some lovely wire and beads that she […]Read More Beading Night: Bracelet Fun
Beading Night is back on track! My friend Deb came over and we played with beads for while her kids were at Awana. It was fun, and it we are going to be getting together every Wednesday while the kids are there. Deb’s Batik Work We started off by comparing beading stashes and projects that […]Read More Beading Night is Back!
I actually made this necklace two weeks ago, but hadn’t had a chance to feature it here yet. This is my Halloween necklace with glass beads and antique-y looking findings. The owl pendant was the spookiest thing I could find at Wal-Mart, where I got the supplies for this necklace. Eh, it’s cute. I’ll wear […]Read More Beading Night Catchup

This whole thing sort of followed a pattern my entire day, too. Perhaps I was just too tired. Frustrated. […]Read More Beading Night 4
I took a little time out from knitting my sweater and beaded for a little bit, as I have been doing on Wednesday nights. I continued work on the Pure Innocence set, completing the bracelet and the two pairs of earrings. I’m getting better with my loops, though they still look sort of bad. I […]Read More Beading Night 3
Beading Night didn’t go off exactly as planned, as my friend did not come over due to my husband being sick. Poor guy. He is feeling better today, I will add. Back to the matter at hand, though. I did get some beading done on my own. I had this beading kit lying around for […]Read More Beading Night 2
I have decided that every Wednesday evening I shall take time to do work on some beading. I did last night and realized that I was WAY out of practice. I also need to take a few more chances and grow as a beader, too. Still, I made two simple pieces. The first is what […]Read More Wednesday Evening: Beading Time!
One thing you are going to see very quickly is that I am very big into cancer awareness. I knit chemo caps for my local cancer center, for example. I’ve participated in Relay for Life. Another thing I have made are beaded cancer awareness bracelets, which is my focus here today. I make these bracelets […]Read More Cancer Awareness Bracelet
