Back To Beading

I've been a slug long enough, basking in the afterglow of projects completed. It's time to get back to work. I picked up a tray that had been set aside and spent yesterday beading and unbeading and writing and rewriting. This is a project I had started a few months ago but set aside because the beads were not behaving. Fortunately for me they changed their minds yesterday and finally lined up to my satisfaction. What? Oh, well there is some Bronze and Vitrail (yummy green flashes there) and some Crystal Brown Pearls, topped off with some wonderful Mocca AB (if you have not seen this color, go check it out) and Bali silver. Just picture it. Later I'll picture it for you.

I've also got some nifty, quick stitch bracelets calling my name so I may have to split my time between the two. Maybe that way I can throw a few more things into the Etsy store. And, oh my stars, just imagine if I managed to get a pattern or two tossed up onto the web site. Why, then I might actually be an overachiever! GASP!! It practically makes my head spin, which is no easy feat considering that I'm dizzy most of the time anyway.

And on top of all this, it is a warm, sunny day (following some very cold, gray days). Sunny days are always good for inspiration. Your question for the day: What type of day inspires you to get creative? Leave a comment. Otherwise, how will the rest of us know what you think?

An inspirational day is the one before a deadline!!! Hee Hee

Actually inspirational days hit whenever I am envisioning a project and starting to pull it together. I have to admit that I sort of lose interest when it comes to the final details.

Your blog is gorgeous and serene. I love your title art and your musings. Beads often get the better of me too!

I totally agree about deadlines! LOL -- they are definitely inspring, aren't they?

Thank you so much for the complements. It's nice to find a kindred spirit!

Oh to have a day with enough free time to dump out my beads, metals, and tools on my work table and just make stuff. I know I haven't had many of those days, because my anvil(yes, I found it) has been on the floor for the past few days and the dog has decided it makes a good pillow. At least someone is making good use of it. lol.

Oh my goodness, I can just see the Chiq lounging on the anvil, tongue hanging out, little tail stub just a waggin'!
