This blog started in January of 2011 as a 365 day project of creativity and using the otherwise unusable: paper crafts, jewelry, sewing, fiber art, pottery, and wherever else I might be led.
It is really now what I would call a journey blog.
As promised, no paper projects today....however, I did make notebook covers still today. These are beaded beads.....and they only call for 12 of a similar size bead.....so for the last few beads of each color, or the last few beads of a certain size but the colors are mixes.....these can be cute. My daughter went to a bead camp at The Bead Monkey over winter break, and this was but one of their many projects. This is just a right angle weave, and in the end, you can string these on just about anything. I used 4mm bicones here, as I had some leftover from a bracelet I made for a friend for Christmas. Now I have just a few left of each color, and while I could just pop them on an end pin and hang them on ear wires, this was a new one for me. My daughter made some with seed beads, and my son made some with shiny mixed colored square beads. I think that this could work with just about anything from very elegant to silly playful! Only took a second......also my kind of project!
