A little bit of everything

Hello Friends!

Wow.. this is a LATE entry huh? I hit the gym early with Ricky and did some things around the house. I also took care of my poor little garden that is just FRYING outside in the 98 degree heat! I have been editing my pics for you too and took a little lunch break before writing this entry. So here goes...

Today's listings are green and purple! The first one is another pair of my tangled vines earrings. I just love making these earrings. They are so fun to make and so pretty on :)
The next listing is for a swirly heart with a loop at the top. I am really excited about the picture too since you can really see that pretty peacock metallicy scroll work in the picture.
Maybe you also want to see what I've been working on as well :) I made some "I" cords with the help of my friend's Holly and Brandon. The "I" stands for "idiot" since an idiot could make them. I guess I am indeed an idiot! I did a few stitches on the orange and green one, but when it came to the black I "lost my groove". Brandon and Holly decided to give me a hand.
These both have one of my lampwork buttons stitched onto the end and have been felted. I am going to embellish them with beads :D I am excited to work on these :D I will post pics when I am done. Now you have an idea of what do do with my fabulous buttons!

I also had a special request from an old friend, Sandy for a bead with a dragon fly on it. This is my very FIRST dragon fly bead! I am pretty pleased with the beads :D I used some sparkly dichro on the wings and eyes and used some silver plum for the swirly scrolls.
The base is teal with hints of lemon grass. I made the other small lentil too just to see how it would be to make something teeny after working on such a large "canvas".




Look what I got in the mail from Tracee Dock of The Classic Bead! Isn't it absolutely GORGEOUS? I just LOVE pottery! :D I was the kid in class that had their pottery blow up in the kiln :( It never was one of my strong suits so I just enjoy everyone else's creations. Can't do everything right?!

Were you wondering how my little garden was doing? Here it is!

Ok so it's not much, but it is BOOMING with veggies! I think next year we are going to find a way to do a raised garden. Not only are we fighting the elements, but those GD bunnies keep nibbling my tomatoes to a stem! Luckily my sweet little tomatoes wanted to live and actually grew all of their leaves back after being nibbled to a stem! WOO HOO! Go survival of the fittest! We got some of that animal spray for around our garden so hopefully that will help. I think it got washed away last time we sprayed it on since it rained. Don't worry! We got the organic stuff. It has garlic and dried blood in it or something. Sounds pretty yuck, but hopefully it will keep the vermin away!

Here is a picture of my goodies from Target. It is a "bamboo" beach mat and lime green and aqua placemats. I got 2 beach mats for $2.50 each in their cheap section and got the placemats 2 for $2.50 at 50% off discount! Not too shabby for table coverings for shows huh?! I was EXCITED!

And... last, but not least. I am sending these babies to a silent auction in Denver, CO at Gravitiy Defied. If you follow the link you can get more info on this event.



Have a wonderful day!

Much love,

Genea

Thanks :) Really? I am surprised by the number of people that like dragonflys. Not that there is anything wrong with them, it's just interesting.
