I've got jury duty AND a root canal, all in one week. How's that for lucky? Still, it could be worse. I can afford the root canal, and the agony before the doc relieved the abscess made me realize how amazing modern dentistry (and medicine) is. I've never had an abscessed tooth before, and now I know why people used to just yank bad teeth out, even without anesthesia. Wow that was bad.
Sometimes life gets in the way of beading. I especially regret that now as I'm really starting to get back the flow of ideas that sort of dried up before when I was so overwhelmed by the needs of getting the software out to market. One project after another leaps out of me, and I've got far too many to try even if I could bead for hours each day.
Our Etsy Beadweavers Team has a monthly challenge, with each entry being a listing in our Etsy stores. This is my entry for October. The original title was supposed to be "Gifts of the Earth" because of all the semi-precious stones used in it. The theme of the October challenge is "Inspired by Picasso" so I retitled it and related it to the theme as required.
From October 9 until October 15, you can visit the EBW blog and vote for your favorite entry. Every month there are some amazing entries, you'll be sure to get an eye-full, and find a favorite!
I've also been inspired by the November challenge theme, on Spirals, and have started a project I hope will develop into something worthy of entry.
Meanwhile, I'm learning to bead crochet, and trying to earn a living.
Notice where that last falls on the priority list.
