Ok, in other news, I have been chronically uninspired lately. When that happens I resort to the unspeakable. I copy. There, I said it. Most of the time I copy myself. I look at old photos of beads I made back in the early days and try to remake them, only better. This time, though, it was different. Even copying myself didn't pry me out of the funk. I had to do something drastic. I looked to Melanie Egan ( http://www.moonrakerbeads.com/ ) and Megan Ballarini ( http://www.glassbeadfairy.com/ ) for inspiration. I found the cutest aliens and had to make some for myself. Now, what to do with them?
Last weekend, I went and visited my buddy, Kimberly Lynn ( http://www.kimbeads.com/ ) for the weekend and she helped me put together a fantabulous bracelet. Seriously, I love this thing. It makes me happy on the inside. Check it out -
Isn't it the cutest thing you've ever seen?Now, I hope you've been keeping up with http://www.cakewrecks.com/ and http://www.postsecret.blogspot.com/ because there has been some good stuff in both of those lately. But, wait! I have a new Web Jewel for you to visit! Set aside a few minutes and check out http://www.boxerjam.com/ for a whole slew of fun and smart puzzles and games. I have been playing Strike A Match since the beginning of inter-web time, I swear. They have a colorful and fun version of sudoku called Wasabi. Enjoy!
