3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Hedgehog Rings on: November 26, 2007 06:25:10 PM
It started with this Hedgehog pin.

The instructions for this cutie can be found at
(They're in French so if you don't read French you might want to go here first:

Then I was thinking the spiky part of the hedge Hog would make a cool ring. So I made these:
Too bad I'm such a bad photographer...These are really sparkly & cute in real life.
Here's a close up

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Dia de los Muertos necklace on: November 04, 2007 01:29:05 PM
Every year the Monarch butterflies migrate south to Mexico. They end up arriving at about the same time as the Dia de los Muertos observation.
A legend says that the butterflies convey the souls of the dearly departed to/from the festivities.
That legend was my inspiration for this piece.

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Bead Brain's Gallery:Less Art, More ? on: June 13, 2007 01:33:46 AM
The story behind this card: I was really sick in 2004 & there was just no hope in site. I was getting CT scans every other week.  Every time one came back it was more bad new.  The background on this card is the first report that basically says my cancer had stopped spreading & in fact was going nonactive.

I guess what makes this particularly important to me, is that I got this news the day after I found out my first Grand child was on his way.
All of the sudden I went from planning a funeral to planning a birthday.

So even though the background of this card looks grim,  I keep that report as a reminder of an important turning point in my live and a day I felt the makers presence. 

I know this is probably a little too much personal information.  If this offends anyone please PM me & I'll take it down.

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Baby Memory Pillow on: May 29, 2007 10:14:50 PM
My daughter has had a really hard time parting with her son's old baby clothes. So she picked out some of her favorites & made this pillow.

She's planing a quilt as well.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Yay Summer! on: May 17, 2007 12:38:08 AM
I had a long hard winter this year.  I'm so glad it's almost summer again. 
I made this a while ago but I thought I'd share it with you in celebration of summer.

Happy Summer!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / My Latest Beadwork on: May 12, 2007 11:40:54 PM
I made this bracelet for my Mom for Mothers Day. It's based on a pattern from a 2002 Bead & Button magazine.

I used this butterfly pin as a "bow" on the package.  It's based on an old Bead & Button pattern as well.

(sorry for the blurry photos, I need to work on my photography skills)
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / My Digi Pages on: December 03, 2006 10:24:16 PM
This is my favorite page

This one is based on a kit I saw @ a craft store. So I guess I can't call it an original.  But I like it anyway.
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Little Beaded Bottles (updated 06/03/07) on: November 26, 2006 09:20:52 PM
This is one of those little 2 inch bottles you can buy in craft stores.  I've covered it in beads using a couple different stiches.

Are there any other mini bottle beaders out there? Feel free to share.
