Beading Bracelets

Well... life just never goes the way you want it to does it?
Between taxes, cars dying and a few other dramatic things it's been a crazy week.

However, there is something good that comes of it.
I taught myself a new bead stitch last night in the hopes of distracting myself  from all the crazy. It's a daisy stitch. So I made this cute little bracelet. It's quite fun to put together. This one is not perfect but with a bit more attention I could get it to a 'perfect-esque' state.

I also made a bracelet to match a dress for an event last week that I had to attend. This one is a simple put together that I designed. Nothing much fancy, but believe it or not it took me an hour to pick colours to go with those lovely purple painted bead (the problem with being a graphic designer, I just have to have it perfect). Here she be:

I have been stitching on dragons, baby garden and ravens.
The baby garden is quite a bit further along since i last shared so I will try and get a pic of it soon. Dragons is quickly approaching another page finish so I think I will wait until I have that to share it now.

I have no good teasers to put here as I don't want to promise things that may not happen, and right now giveaways are on hold as I can't afford the shipping... But hopefully you'll still come back to read anyways. :)


Here's a quick little treat of me beading that my darling man took without me knowing last night! I think I can count on one hand how often I've posted a photo of me up here...

The bracelets are pretty. I can't wait to see an update on Dragons.

How are the snakes doing. Haven't seen anything for awhile.
