Hello craftee babies,

I saw this pattern on a Korean beading website and just have to give it a try. I don't speak a word of Korean, but I still manage to figure out the pattern Yay!. I speak Chinese thou. I guess we look alike. Only wish we can speak alike. hehehe...

I hope you guys find this tutorial somewhat fun or useful. The voice over alone took about 7 hours. I know...how can a 10 minute video take 7 hours for a voice over? Easy...when you have a iMovie program that doesn't act right. It was painful. I wanted to add more instructions but it was 3am in the morning. I just gave up due to lack of energy. Red bull or coffee would be great by now. I have to make it before the deadline so you guys won't be disappointed if no video is up.

I try to make all of my videos short as possible, but there is no way to cut corners with beading tutorials. I filmed over 1.5 hours of footage and only 10:37 was used so I consider that very short when all things considered, lol. Although some footage is of me just trying to look pretty Smiley hehe....

This week's video can be quite the task, so don't be afraid to re-play the instructions if you get lost (it's not considered cheating, lol).  If you're new to beading I recommend watching my beaded crystal ball video first to get the hang of repeating patterns and what not.

I know a lot of beading things...earrings, necklaces, bracelets, cute animals. Feel free to let me know if you have a pattern that you always want to learn but couldn't figure it out. Send it my way.

Stay Craftee!

Mei

Cute!  And you could use white beads to make a snowman's head.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.
