FaceBook Challenge

The other night on Facebook, I posted a question that said, "Please Challenge Me." I was so pleased to see what other people had in mind. My son, Nick, even joined in the challenge me. I had so much fun today working with these challenges! Here are the pictures of what I made.

Nick said, "Can you make a dolphin?" I didn't know. I found a tutorial on Etsy for making a dolphin and ordered. Here are the results. I had so much fun with that tutorial, I made 3 different dolphins. (Only 2 out of the 3 looked like dolphins)

I don't know what kind of fish this looks like, but it is supposed to be a dolphin.

This dolphin was supposed to be orange. I grabbed the wrong color rod. Tomorrow, I'm going to make an orange dolphin.

The next challenge suggested was to make Xmas balls for ornaments. I was very pleased with these. I made hollow beads and decorated them. Now, all I have to add is the wire work.

The next suggestion was peppermints. All right, so this wasn't the greatest. I couldn't remember how to make them. This is an alien piece of peppermint candy.

How about hearts? Sueze said. Here's a heart Sueze!

Vicki said, "How about lots and lots of colorful fish?" I had honestly forgotten how to make small fish. I used to make very good fish.
I said that this would be the good, the bad, and the ugly. ooooops!

More practice need with fish.

The last challenge still has me thinking! Shoestrings! This was the best I could come up with at the time--dread coil! Any suggestions? I love a good challenge!

Isn't it cool how someone else can stretch your abilities? I think your dolphins rock!

I think the alien peppermint bead is very intriguing. You're onto something with that one - a completely original bead. What a great idea having a personal challenge.
