Its been super busy and feels like nothing is really getting done, and Christmas is just way too soon. Anyway I finally got around to doing a longer video of my current collection that I still have at home, baring a few Christmas gifts and works in progress, though some of those are on the table to along with JiJi. I posed the video up only on my FB art page as I’m not really comfortable with making videos, and figured that only the dedicated would go to view it. If you are interested in watching it it’s called OMG Beads and Cat and is on my FB page Delicate by Lou. I’m thinking of posting it on my youtube page but am not really keen on the idea.
I missed posting yesterday as I took my amazing friend Miss Penny out for driving practice so she can get her licence and here is a photo of us in a tree because I was having loads of fun playing soccer in heels, with a coconut and climbing trees. Am I an adult? its debatable 🙂 Along with her mum and son we had a great day out and even stoped in at the Organic store at the leap and had lunch. When we got back I held my first beading ‘class’ with the three of them and Deb, Pennys mum did so well. We’ve had so much trouble catching up lately so it was great to be able to spend the day together. And time just flew by, so that it was pretty much time to get ready for work when I got home.
Ashton and I also had fun mucking around with the pearler beads and melting them together the way you are meant to. This is a cool little character from among us. I’ll have to work on melting them evenly but its cool and a fun way to chill when I need a break from beading. Ashton made his own design with out a pattern, being really creative. I was also impressed with how he gave beading ago before deciding it wasn’t for him.
I’m getting there with the final star for my last order of the year and would have had more of it done today but there was a power outage for a few hours and I struggled to work though the heat, even moving outside. And then I gave up and had a nap with Millie who decided that despite of the heat we had to nap together and she had to nap on top of me. Cats. 🐈
I am detriment to get this star finished tomorrow morning and get it into the lady so that it’s done and she has them before Christmas.
Speaking of orders I have my first for next year which is cool and it’s also my biggest so far. Hopefully a good sign for the year to come.
I also only have short weeks of work this week and next week so I’ll have more time to focus on beading and not be so drained but at the same time I’ll be earning less money so its a mixed bag. I’ll also be able to spend more time working on my blog and will hopefully get around to finishing and posting the pages for it I’ve been planning.
Also on the cards are a series of baubles and decorations (and other things of beadwork I’ll sell) so that I can have a visual guide for the difference sizes so people can make a more informed decision. And also some visual guides for pattern choice. I’m still deciding what colours to chose for the guide but I’m thinking chalk white with gold or maybe black. More complex patterns with three or more colours will have to wait till further down the track for their own visual guides.
Well I’ll catch you next time and will try to be more consistent with posting but I hope you all have happy holidays, a merry Christmas and an excellent new year.
P.S. Thank you all so much for all the support it means so much to me that you all want to see my beadwork and know more about it.
