Dream a Little Dream of Beads!

If dream a little dream of beads is a little vague, then I need to tell you what I’m dreaming about. It’s all there, but like all dreams, it won’t be easy to explain. I’m in a transition phase with my art. I feel stalled, and need to give myself a good kick in the pants! I want to start a new project, but my muse is lusting for something more complicated, so I’m at an impasse. Darn that muse! It feels like I’ve been drifting along, with no particular focus. Have you ever had that happen to you? I …

Dreaming of Beads! Really?

I’m dreaming of beads, but what else is new? I’m close to the finish line with my #the100dayproject, so I will need to focus on other projects. Beads are definitely in the running! But first, here’s my weekly update on my free-form peyote ‘Dancing’ piece. A stash buster for sure, but it also relaxes me, and allows for a tight grip on my sanity. All this social isolation is starting to wear on me, and if it wasn’t for the fact that I work at BeadFX 5 days/week (I see people!), it would be even more difficult. Speaking of dreaming …

The Bead Goes On!

The bead goes on, but the question is what does it go on? I will explore that a little further, later on in the blog post. It wouldn’t be Wednesday, if I didn’t update you on my free form peyote ‘Dancing’ piece. Weekends, and TV time are perfect for working on this project, but I get the feeling that it’s actually my excuse to not do any other type of beading. My focus is almost Zen like, so it would be interesting to see what would happen if I turned everything off, then continued beading. Would the lack of noise …

Creativity is Blooming – and that’s the truth!

Creativity is blooming, despite the current state of affairs. Exercise your imagination, follow the rules, and get your vaccination! I truly believe that’s the only way to recovery. Ontario is under a Stay-at-home order, until May 5th. Here are the details. BeadFX is still open for curbside pickup. Exercise your creativity, and bead your way out of it! Sort your beads, buy more (from BeadFX, but only if you need to), then get ready, and just go! My creativity is blooming in strange, and wonderful ways, and I’m excited to explore the possibilities! Here’s the latest on my free form …

August 2020 Bead Mat Update: Welcome to my world!

It’s time for my August 2020 bead mat update! But what’s all that about my world? I’m a crazy, intuitive, right brained (but left when I need to) artist! But I wasn’t always comfortable with the term. I only started calling myself that, when other artists told me that my work had a unique voice, then they began to call me by that moniker. But really, I’m just a mixed-up media girl, addicted to techniques, then creating whatever my muse tells me to make! Do you believe that it’s almost the end of August? Where did the summer go? It’s …
