51  Queen of the 'Tile' ... Get it?! Ha ha in Beads: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: April 01, 2013 02:59:29 PM

Well I made a Turquiose version of this necklace first... and I had some orders for more and while I was awaiting more turquoise beads I made this black version! I used larger crystals and added black czech drop beads to the bottom of each row.
I really like how this one came out! I love how it lays as well! Something about these beads it just so much fun!!! Right before I sat down to post this new one, my package of turquoise beads came in the mail! I know what I'll be making tonight!!!!

52  Beaded Tile Necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: March 25, 2013 08:12:27 AM
So, there was a tile bead pattern in the most current issue of Beadwork magazine that I liked... so I changed it up a little bit and made it more my own!

This was the original pattern:


When I realized I didn't buy enough of the tile beads... and I couldn't chose just one color crystal, I changed it up a bit and added 2 crystals instead of 1 to each column and made a different type of cord for the back and enclosed all the tile beads with the seed beads... I liked the original pattern, but I think I like my improvements a little more!



This is what it looks like on...


Let me know what you think.... did you like the original more? I am confident in what I made but would love your insight!

When I swap with Wendiek, I know I will never be disappointed!!! And today she really came through! I received my package all the way from the Netherlands and was so super excited to open it! (So was my daughter and the doggy too!) So I couldn't get my daughter to stop grabbing at it all, hence the action shot!


Here she is opening her own special gift made by Wendiek!

This is straight from my Pinterest! All Abby my 2 year old could say was how "beautiful" and "awesome" her new "Dolly" was! She LOVES dressing her up! She already asked for more clothes!!! "Dolly" has already had her welcome checkup (Abby loves giving checkups...) and she has become just in love with this new toy!!! Thank you Wendie!!!

And now on to my presents!!! TWO lovely mug rugs (the very Dtuch one could also be a pot holder.... but I am leaving it as art! It is hanging in my sewing cupboard!



She also has her OWN labels she put on the backs!

TWO felt badges.... the bee is actually a pin! I am putting him on my favorite sweater... even though today it is too warm....


This AWESOME Bird Pillow Cover..... It will be going in my family room on our arm chair just as soon as I get a pillow in it!


Also... yes an also! These lovely little papers and a cute handmade gift tag/card!

Many of the papers have hummingbirds on them! They are my favorite!!! I actually had just gotten a Tag punch and I will be able to use these with it!!!

Thank you soo very much! I have to send you a PM just so I can fully express my thanks!

55  "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"

56  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!

60  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...
