I love the love Cheesy

I am so glad that everyone is getting all these great little gifts in the mail; I love Secret Santas like this - gives everyone warm fuzzies.  Even though this time of the year is supposed to be about peace, joy, etc, it can be so stressful, especially if one has other issues - school, work, finances, joblessness, sick love ones, etc.  I think each of these little packages helps so much to alleviate that stress - even if I'm not the recipient, it brightens my day to see what everyone else has received, and thinking about the thought and work that went into each package.

Someone a couple of years ago did this project and posted their results here, and they were gorgeous.  They were glass ornaments with family pictures inside.  If I remember correctly, she decorated with some extra stuff around the topper, and also did some snowflakes etched on the glass and may have used some faux snow (or beads?) on the inside too, and they looked lovely.  It's been on my to do list for awhile myself.

I love these too, and I think I would like to make them for some friends who have young kids, and now that I think about it, a couple of teacher friends would love them for their classes too!  Would they work with inkjet printed images, or does it have to be laserjet?  Could it be done with colour photocopies if not inkjet?

What a great package!  I love that otter kit and those pendents are great!

I think I am done Sad. I don't think I can do any more for ship out Friday especially after making my list of x-mas todos that still are outstanding.

Wow, you guys are fast!  I bought the materials I need for my angel item, but may not start on it until I'm done my Christmas crafting.  I have some armlesa gnomes and need two more pairs of mittens.

Yes, with seed beads in size 6 and 11, you can make a few netted/stitched patterns such as these:

There are a number of projects here using seed beads.  I recommend the St. Petersburg bracelet - I made a lariat from that weave a number of years ago using 11/0 seed beadsand 8/0 beads.  You need to register to get the patterns, but it is worth while, and free:

Here is another site with lots of projects too - needs registration, but again, free.  I linked to a square stitch bracelet that could translate to a cute choker too.

Here is one of my favourite on-line beading magazines - free, and go to the archives, lots of projects there.  For you, I am thinking specifically the stitching and weaving sections.  It doesn't look so pretty in their examples, but the spiral stitch is easy and with combining the size 11/0 and 6/0 beads, you can come up with something simple, but quite attractive with that stitch.

Then look here - lots of instructions on some basics seedbead stitches - doing daisy chains, herringbone pattern, other woven stitches, etc:
