52  "Waves of Grace" A Freeform Beaded Necklace (Pic HEAVY) in Beads: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: March 06, 2013 03:13:15 PM
UPDATE:This necklace came in 2nd Place at the 2013 San Diego Fair for Original Beaded Design!!!

I started this necklace with $30 worth of new beads and some from my own stash and NO plan or reason.
When I began this project this was all I had to start with:

I had NEVER tried freeform but had always really loved the idea of it. As the bezel came together, again no rhyme or reason, I began to wonder how I would make the straps...

I found as I beaded it just "came" together all on it's own. I have never really been one to really like that type of crafting. I loved rules to my beadwork and this was breaking all of them!

The biggest anxiety was once the first side was finished, I had no clue I would replicate it for the second strap. I knew they wouldn't come out exactly the same, but I figured if I could do it once then I could do it again... I hoped!

Once it was all finished... but I am sure I could always add more... I put it on to find it really isn't as heavy as you think it would be all the differences make it so unique! I know I can never replicate it, but boy would I try! Here are some shots of the detail to the straps. As well as the closure which is a simple Terra Cast Pewter Leaf print button!

And finally it being worn! (Sorry I didn't have a great shot with all of me... ha ha) I love how it's all a little different. No two "waves" are the same but the pendant still manages to be centered... I don't know how I made that happen! But I call her "Waves of Grace"

53  Jade Beaded Necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: March 04, 2013 03:29:20 PM

I made this necklace for my mom for Christmas in 2012. But in all reality I started this necklace about 5 years ago or well even more! I had beaded the Jade Donut in the middle and left it for all that time! I think she thought she was never going to see it completed! So I thought this was the year to finally finish it an surprised her with it for Christmas!

Here are some more detailed pictures of the beaded bezel:

Here is a sample of the Jade bead that is on both sides of the chain:

I hope you enjoyed it! Any feedback is welcome!

Well after being on holiday for a week... I think I finally have normal life back in order! While I was away I received 5 beautiful FQ's from chelseahavoc! She put in a note that she absolutely couldn't choose between just 4 so she added in the 5th! So awesome! Here is a shot of them all!

Sorry my pic isn't the best... I couldn't seem to get good lighting....

Aren't they just great! I love the cat fabric and we aren't cat people! Ha ha! I might make something with that one first!

I received from ecopp a few days ago, but I have a sick little one and it's been hard to get too much done around the house! I received these 4 fun FQs. I love them all and think I might have some plans for the woodsy owls and the elephants to make pillows for my daughter... she loved those two!

57  Mini Art Quilt "For the Love of Michigan" in Quilting: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: February 02, 2013 07:54:30 PM
Well I am currently participating in the 6th round of the Mini Art Quilt Swap here on Craftster. My partner was the ever amazing StickerChic87. One of her themes was Michigan State and from her Pinterest and asking her, the Mumford and Sons Quote, "Where you invest your love, you invest your life."

She just received it today and really enjoyed it! It's already hanging up in her home and I well just wanted to show it off with a few pics I had taken before mailing because it came out better than I had even envisioned it would! And that rarely happens!

The quote was simply freezer paper stenciled and the heart was in the location where she is from and I tried my best to quilt hearts... need a little more work with the edges but it turned out great.

One last Instagram shot... I just focused it on the quote...

58  Re: Junker Jane Style Doll Swap GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by CraftyMamaBee on: January 19, 2013 08:03:49 AM
Well I received yesterday, but with this cold I got recently I was finally able to take an afternoon/evening nap... so opps I forgot to rush into the office and post pictures... but here I am this morning (thanks to my morning cup o' joe!)

I received from gozer yesterday! She sent the most adorable doll!

She put in her note that her cat really loved it too! I could tell! I had to lint roll her ... only because I have a cat allergy... but it totally makes for this awesome story... she a cat lover and me, sworn enemy of them and somehow we live in harmony together in my studio! Hee hee! I love it!

Me extras, yes plural was this awesome little felt Narwhal, because they are like my absolute favorite and an ATC ... my FIRST ATC to be exact! It all goes to perfectly in my Living Room/Studio! I'll get to see it all everyday when I sew or just hang out in there!

The absolutely funny thing is the fabric she used for the arms and legs I had purchased to use on hers, but changed my mind! How funny is that? I thought it was too me and not enough of the things she has said she liked! Ha ha

Thank you so much for swapping with me! I love her and the little extras! I only hope you like mine as much!

I just checked the tracking on yours... I hope it gets there today... otherwise Tuesday because of Monday's holiday...

59  Re: Prayer Flag Swap Rd. 2 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by CraftyMamaBee on: January 14, 2013 03:22:28 PM
I received a beautiful flag from mbellish today! I had to take the pictures on my fridge because it is just too darn cold outside! (At least for Southern Cali it is  Cheesy)

She used the word "Grace"
I LOVE it!
I have some more shots to show just how much depth there is to this flag.

Thank you so much for this flag! After the long weekend I needed that reminder of Grace! I already have a place in mind to hang it!

60  "Strength" Prayer Flag... Indoor or Outdoor in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: January 10, 2013 08:40:37 AM
I recently participated in the Prayer Flag Swap that the fabulous Leslieshappyheart and Susanab organized and I made this prayer flag for my partner, embellish:

The butterfly was drawn on with felt tip pens on a thin piece of handmade paper. The cocoon was done with the same paper.

There is more about the techniques used on my blog which you can get to from the bottom of my post...

And one last action shot!
