April 2021 Bead Mat Update – Random Stuff!

My April 2021 bead mat update is a study in randomness. But then, what else could you possibly expect from me? I’m an intuitive artist! I’m still working on my free form peyote ‘Dancing’ piece. However, I do have an endless supply of time, and beads (don’t we all?), so no end in sight! Marg, the squirrel pincushion is in honour of your recent escapades! Critters to go!! Next up on my April 2021 bead mat update, are the buttons that I just had to have, from the last BeadFX update. Also, a fabulous Luna Moth charm. No project in …

Just Do Something!

If just do something isn’t enough of a clue, then I don’t know what the heck I will do with you! It’s time to keep safe, and hunker down, while remembering to explore your creativity.

Of course, if you’ve been reading my blog posts, you will definitely figure out that I don’t just bead! I call myself a mixed-up media artist, because I’m …

Not a Bead in Sight!

Not a bead in sight, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love them! All it means is that I’ve been otherwise occupied, as you’ll see below. A friend of mine, introduced me to Neurographic Line Drawings (here’s the video I followed), and I’m obsessed with the process! It’s addicting! I will let the drawings speak for themselves, but will refine the process over time. Who would have thought, that I’d actually find a bug in my drawing? It crawled right out, then begged for glitz, and attention!! LOL! Over at the Stitch Meditation Facebook group, I put up …
