The blossoms have bloomed

I finally stopped making more blossoms long enough to actually list some on etsy. The weather has been so lovely - my magnolia is blooming, the apple trees and the beauty bush are budding, and I'm so looking forward to the gorgeous displays of pink blossoms in the garden.

I really need to get out there and do a spring clean up. The nice weather arrived much earlier than usual, and the weeds are already starting to take over the garden. Now, if I could only enlist the help of the kids...I know....I'm dreaming ;-)

Spring Blossoms

Coming soon to etsy - as soon as I can stop making more long enough to clean and photograph them ;-)

Thought I'd share a shot taken by my budding 8 year old photographer.She spent a few hours wandering the neighbourhood taking photo's for a social studies project. I love the colours in this one - the red really pops.

Citrus Berry

Just finished an inspiration for beadfx - Citrus Berry. I love how the bright pop of orange changes the feel from holiday-ish to something more fun and casual - and the dangles! Super long jingly dangles... :-)

I'm still here!

Yikes - it's been far too long again. I've been crazy busy over the past month, as we've started some home cleanup projects, visiting family members, kids crazy schedules, and so on. I don't really have too much to post about other than that I am in fact still here, and really itching to get back into the studio.

In the last month I've barely spent any time down there other than to create some Inspirations for beadFX.

I did manage to get these made up, and I really like the design, but I think they may be a bit too heavy to wear comfortably.

And another positive note - I have a camera again! I think I may just spent the next two weeks worth of evenings sequestered in the studio, and see what I can come up with. I need a serious dose of creative inspiration. Etsy updates coming when I actually have something new to show ;-)
