Glass Corsages

Last year,
at the Bead and Button Show,
I took a class taught by
Sara Sally LaGrand
Glass Corsage.
I will never regret that class
because it was
I made a corsage then,
I have enjoyed it so much
that I thought I should make one for spring!
I have been making components for a while.
I ended up with enough components to make,
not one,
but two glass corsages.
One I will wear.
The other will go into my living room as a sculpture for all to see.
Here they are.
This is the corsage I will wear.

This is the one I will display in my living room!
I just love them!
Thanks, Sara Sally!

So, far,
I haven't seen one piece that I have disliked.
This is my blog soup entry.
I like it!
I'll be wearing it a lot.

Bead Soup Blog Party - Reveal!

At last,
The Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal Day!!!!!!
Thank you, Lori, for organizing this and for all of your helpful tips along the way!
Time has really flown.
When this started,
I was down with the flu wondering if I would ever be able to get out of bed again!
I'm afraid I sent Cindy a rather skimpy parcel.
Sorry, Cindy,
but I was sick.
Cindy was very generous with me!
here's the final result.


Isn't that pendant gorgeous?

And I had enough left over to make this.

The sugar beads are beads that I made, and the red makes each piece POP!
I plan to wear these pieces tomorrow, if I go out.
Right now,
it's -2!
I'm not sure I'll go out tomorrow.

get to the blog hop.

Three Beautiful Things This Week

Three Beautiful Things This Week was inspired by a wonderful blog that Clare writes called Three Beautiful Things. Everyday, Clare writes about 3 Beautiful Things that happen each day in her life. It's a wonderful blog! I can only hope to imitate her in a very small way.

1) See this beautiful quilt? I learned about it a week ago on Christina's Lloyd's blog, Working on Tomorrow.
Christina made this beautiful quilt for me, and it arrived yesterday!!! What an awesome day brightener! Yesterday was a rough day, but after the arrival of this amazing quilt and a phone call from Christina, my day took on a brightness that this gloomy day could not provide. Thank you, Christina!

2) I had breakfast and lunch with two different friends yesterday. Both events were day brighteners, too! Potatoes and bacon for breakfast. Soup was for lunch. Nummy on both counts!

3) Got back to my painting today. The painting was awful, but it was good to do!

There's a lot of color there!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Curiosity

This week's photo challenge was: Curiosity. That proved to be a challenge for me.

My first thought was: "I sure wish I had a cat." Sadly, I don't. So "curious as a cat" was not to be part of this challenge.

Then I thought, "How about a child?"
Well, even though it's been warmer, it's still cold and most of the cute, little ones are inside being curious."

Well, that left Pixie. She's not a curious dog. If you give her clean food and water, and beds and pillows and a comfy couch, she's very content. If she's curious, she simply lifts an ear up to hear the sound. Her head never leaves the ground, or, I should say, pillow.

In an effort to make Pixie a bit curious, I did a dance. I made sounds. I finally got up close with my camera, and then she did it. She lifted her head off the couch! She was curious! See the photo? I can even prove it! She was curious!!! Now that was a curiosity.

Three Beautiful Things This Week

Three Beautiful Things This Week was inspired by a wonderful blog that Clare writes called Three Beautiful Things. Everyday, Clare writes about 3 Beautiful Things that happen each day in her life. It's a wonderful blog! I can only hope to imitate her in a very small way.

1) This week was Valentine's Day. My son sent me a beautiful bouquet of pink (my favorite color) roses! What a sweet heart! That really perked up my day!

2) Our temperatures have been above zero all week! After such a long, snowy winter, this warm spell is really helping. People's moods are visibly improved. The snow levels are going down. I saw the bird bath for the first time since December today! Even the birds are chirping louder now.

3) Pixie and I went to Pet Expo this week. She hadn't been there for a very long time! She saw all over her human friends. She got so many treats! She knew which pocket to find. Her friends were teaching her how to open the treat bins. She had such a good time! She came home and slept for 2 hours! She was exhausted.

I'm Painting Again or This is Wonderful Therapy Too and It's a Lot Cheaper Than a Shrink

It just seemed the thing to do one day.
I pulled out an old canvas,
I started painting again!
I had been trying to find other ways to use my beads,
painting seems to be a great therapy,
as well as,
another way to use my beads.

My mantra this year,
There are lots of beads in this one!

My favorite
On the Wings of Angels.
Minimalist in the use of beads,
by far,
the one I like the best.

Now, what's your favorite therapy?

Happy Valentine's Day and the Challenge

Happy Valentine's Day!

I wish you and your soul mate a very precious day of love!!!!

To my children, I love you both!

To all of our family and friends,
we love you, too!

The Challenge

As you know, Deb Batten, aka FireBird Flame Work and I, challenge ourselves each month to extend our creative souls and try a new skill or work to enhance those we already have.

Last month, the challenge was Bead %$#%%^****(())) Kumihimo. Certainly not a good one for me. However, we continue, although a bit late this month, to pursue a further development of our creative souls. This month, and this was Deb's idea, especially since it's my fault we are running late, we are challenging ourselves to work on copper, but wait, it's not just that. The name of our challenge this month is:
Color Me Copper.

So, what will be doing? Deb and I will be challenging ourselves to work with different ways to patina copper. I'm sure looking forward to this one! We will do the reveal at the end of the month, so stay tuned. You can also check out Deb's blog for her side of the story!

Six Word Story Sunday - Our Journey

Our Journey



All right,
if you know me,
six words just isn't enough.
I haven't painted for years,
I have wanted to take up where I left off,
adding my beads to the mix.
As I painted this,
I had a different vision in mind of the finished product.
this painting wanted to be something else.
I made a mistake
and had to cover it up.
This mixed media
became the story of our journey as a family.
I think I like it better than my original idea.

Saturday, February 12, 2011

These were on my Bead Table Wednesday, but I am the slowest beader in the world, so they haven't made it out the door, but I hope they do soon!

At least they have jump rings on them!
These will be listed in my Etsy store soon, I hope, or
made into jewelry.
However, if you see something you might want,
convo me on Etsy and we'll talk.

Three Beautiful Things This Week

Three Beautiful Things This Week was inspired by a wonderful blog that Clare writes called Three Beautiful Things. Everyday, Clare writes about 3 Beautiful Things that happen each day in her life. It's a wonderful blog! I can only hope to imitate her in a very small way.

1) I have been sleeping again, except for one night when I woke up at 2:30. That was rough, but the rest of the week has been full of wonderful sleep, sleep, and more sleep!!!! Dreams have come back, and they have been so interesting. I love to dream!

2) This week has been a week of getting together with good friends and a birthday celebration. She doesn't read my blog, so she won't know I said Happy Birthday!!!!

3) I looked outside at 6:30 AM, and the first crescent of light on the horizon was starting to break into the sky. I looked outside at 6:30 PM, and the last crescent of light was fading! I love that we are getting so much more daylight now! That's truly a gift!

Thanks so Rosemarie, of Spawn of Flame,
I discovered a Word Press Blog called the Daily Press.
In this blog there is a weekly photo challenge.
This week's photo challenge is called Boundaries.
Here is my entry for Boundaries.

Some boundaries are soft and blurred.
We have to decide whether to push the envelope to find our true boundaries.
Some boundaries are a long way away.
We can only define them by what we see and hear.
Some boundaries are more clearly defined.
We know where they end and where they begin.
Some boundaries are those we can see on the horizon.
We know where the sky meets the earth.
We keep traveling to find that boundary.
I think I like these boundaries the best.
They are the ones that are the most beautiful!

Which boundaries do you like the best?

Bead Table Wednesday

Heather Powers
started it!

So, here's my entry for today.
Metal, metal, and more metal.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Oh, the Tramp is there, too!

Okay, there are a few other projects there, too, but that's it!

I'll show some of them later! For now, that's it!

Art Bead Scene February Monthly Chanllenge

The inspiration for the Art Bead Scene February challenge is this painting titled
"Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose" by John Singer Sargent. You can read more about this beautiful work of art by clicking on the word February.

As soon as I saw this painting, I immediately thought of a glass I love that I have been using sparingly because it is no longer made.
The name of the glass is Orange Sherbet. I have hoarded the little bit that I have, but I knew that, for this challenge, I would be using it. Can you guess what objects made me think of Orange Sherbet? If you said, the lanterns, you're right.

The next day I was busy using my precious Orange Sherbet on the torch. I needed a focal, too, and I made one that I never used.
I didn't need to do that. A few days before I saw this print, I had attempted a layered bead that I couldn't complete when I worked on the torch because my bead release broke. The bead looked all right but there was a bit of bead release on the edges of the holes. There were also some spots where I hadn't been able to finish encasing this bead. It looked rather rough. It reminded me of a large nugget you might find in the ground. As I walked by my bead pile, I saw it, and I knew what I would do.

Here's my entry for the ABS February challenge.

I call this piece "Lanterns" because of the lantern shaped beads that I made for it.
The nugget is huge, but it doesn't distract from the piece.
I think I've captured the spirit of the piece.
I did use some of my Orange Sherbet glass.
All in all, it was a very good day.

Le Ann Gehring-Ryan Mankato Artist Reflecting on her Life

If you live in Mankato, Minnesota,
you will be pleased to know that Le Ann Gehring-Ryan is exhibiting her art work at the
Carnige Art Center of Mankato.
I've known Le Ann for several years.
We used to teach at the same high school, West High School, in Mankato.
Le Ann is an art teacher there.
Two years ago, on February 5th,
Le Ann had a stroke.
As Le Ann came back from her stroke,
she realized how much her life had changed.
I would visit her, and I watched her progress.
Her art became a focal point in her life.
You will see the paintings that she created after her stroke.
They show her feelings about recovery,
the journey she had to take.
Now, as I walked through the gallery,
I took photos.
I forgot to write down the names of Le Ann's paintings.
Some I can guess.
well, all I can say is let them tell you the story.

This is a mixed media self portrait of Le Ann.
She's a lovely woman.
I know the name of this one.
Light at the End of the Tunnel.
I don't remember the name of this painting, but I like it!
Le Ann often portrays herself as a crow.
Note the bandaids.
I love this one.
This depicts Le Ann's special friend, Charley, taking care of her.
I think this one was called
As the Crow Flies.
I remember when Le Ann started this painting.
She was in the early stages of recovery.
Note the damage to her brain.
Pushing up Daisies, I think.
I don't remember the name of this one.
I do remember the name of this one.
Fork in the Road.
I think was called
Learning to Write Again.
Le Ann had to learn to write again.
Self Portrait.
Note the bandaids.
She had a lot to do to recover.
What a vision of your mind.

Thanks, Le Ann, for sharing your art with us!
Isn't she an amazing artist?
What a journey for her.
