It's Been A While...

Yes it's been a week, here is my bead figure I made. It's made of beading wire and plastic beads all from Walmart. It was much easier than I thought! I started off simiple and made an "a" for my youth pastor's wife who is having a little girl next month. She has the cutest name picked out-Aria :)
These were my materials. The beading wire is thin enough that I could cut it with scissors. I started by making the curvy side of the "a" and made the frame.

Then I simply strung the beads on it and then looped more wire in circles aroung the frame and as I went, I strung the beads on.

This is my finished "cury side". I then made the straighter side and curled the top together to make the end and again, strung the beads in circles aroung the frame.

and VOILA! My beaded "a" figurine!


Lucky Me

I just thought I would share with everyone how lucky/blessed I feel. I am capable of walking with my own 2 feet, breathing with my own 2 lungs, seeing with my own 2 eyes, and making things with my own 2 hands. A lot of the time I take these things for granted although they may seem minuscule. Among all the whining I do I often forget to think about the fortunes I have that people around the world do without. Of all the 4 classes I have today, my health class put it in perspective. We talked about Mavlo's pyramid. Things ranging from basic needs to protection to luxuries. My teacher named several objects and had us classify them as necessity or luxury; items such as cell phones, clothes, money, internet, and houses. Sometimes it's hard to imagine those that do without the things we depend on everyday. Then he asked if it was necessary to be loved or have love in life. We all answered yes. Being that it's Valentine's Day and it IS necessary to feel loved or have love, tell someone you love them, even if you don't know that person very well. It's worth it if you make them smile. Pay it forward :) put a smile on your face and live life, laugh often, and LOVE A LOT!

So I had to babysit tonight. Two of the cutest little girls ever! Well in the baby's room there was this pig made of beads and wire. It was SOOOOO CUTE! It had a small light in it and had a flower on its head. So hence my project for tomorrow; I will attempt to make a piggy out of beads and wire. AND I am going to finish my canvases for the WHOO WHOO Give-Away! People you have to get in on this! Monday, February 14, aka Lori's Birthday- there will be 14 give-aways for the scavenger hunt, but make sure when you comment on her blog, wish her a happy birthday!I will be posting pictures of my projects and also my idea for a cute Teen/Kid room decor- it conisists of glass, acrylic paint, christmas lights or small lightbulb and maybe a few stones (gotta love'em!) but that project won't come together till late in the week. Well it's bedtime so goodnight and just 2 days til the scavenger hunt give-away! I just have a feeling it's gonna be the best Valentine's EVER! So smile at a stranger and tell those that are not so strange how much you love them.


When the Saints go marching in...the SNOW

So I painted a small 8x10 stretched canvas during my previous snow day. Well we had another snow day today! I have yet to paint my other small canvas like this but I will get it done. So here's the argument about my new canvas...is it a Saint's symbol or a Fleur de Lis? that is the question!


Snow Day!

So today I woke up and was about to begin getting ready for my 8 am class when I realized it was snowing outside. Not only was is currently snowing but it had been snowing for hours and the road was covered, it looked like God had taken a white glittery blanket and tucked it around my house.. I watched the local news and every school and college in the state was listed as closed except for mine. After 2 phone calls and searching on facebook it was finally confirmed that classes were canceled for the day. So today I am going to catch up on some painting and get my scavenger hunt give-away all finished up! Picuteres will be posted later! Happy Friday everyone!
