I finished up my orange and green beaded brooch. I'm in love with this one. I love how elegant it looks. The colors are great. I'm so happy with how it turned out.
Now for the brooch that didn't work out so well. I was also working on a brooch that was bright and sunny; the opposite of what it looks outside my window right now. I had such high hopes for it. I thought it would lift my spirits and get me ready for spring. Well it hasn't. It's one of those projects that just problem after problem arise. You know the one, the one that doesn't go right no matter how easy it is. No matter how much you think it's going to be a quick little project to fill some time, nope, that's not how it works. Well after broken bead and more broken beads, I decided to put that project aside and come back to it when I wasn't so frustrated and ready to throw it across the room. I'm hoping to have calmed down enough to finish that baby up soon. Who knew a fun bright project would make me so angry?!?
I have a few other ideas that I can't wiat to start. My sketch books seem to be overflowing with ideas as of late. Which is fantastic. Now if only I can get that bead/glass studio organized!
I am also loving my new tripod (thanks to Rose at The Beading and Buttons of Random Creative for the suggestion). I missed having a tripod and I'm loving this one. It's just simple and a photographer would probably laugh at it, but it works great for me. But now I have to actually sit down and get some pictures taken. My next purchase will be for a remote shutter, because waiting for the camera timer is killing me :-)
