I just found a great website, "Designs to Love". The membership is free. There is a forum for crafters and anyone interested in crafts. There is a wonderful photo gallery and it is formatted as for a forum; so everyone can leave comments or have a conversation about a particular piece. I signed up right away, and have already put several photos up in the gallery. I urge you to go have a look. There are some very nice crafter people there, and some very beautiful work. I have also inserted a link in the sidebar under "Related Links".
I have not gotten everything done this week that I had hoped. I was down almost two days with a migraine. Luckily it was only a 5 on the Richter Scale. They just leave me so beaten up, but I am better now.
I have made two more bracelets using the gemstone chips. Photos soon, I promise. I am nearly finished with the final draft for my Step by Step Bead Magazine project. I just have a few corrections to make and then I need to get my honey to photograph me. I am a bit camera shy, I don't think I am very photogenic, but I will send them one, anyway. I may even post it here. Sorry, I have not had a chance to get back to the pdf problem with "Spirals Anklet". It is on my list of priorities.
In a comment to a previous post, I was asked about size 10 seed beads. I can get them locally, but Fire Mountain Gems do not carry them. I looked up the brand of these beads (Beaded Treasures by Crafts, Etc) on the internet. Indeed there is a site Crafts, Etc . So you can find size 10 seed beads in a variety of colors. Of course, they also have a lot of other craft supplies. Their prices seem reasonable to me.
Last night, I had insomnia bad. I feel a bit dragged out today. But Scarlet paid me off. She sent me three new design ideas. I will make time to work on those. I am rather excited about them, but I just wish Scarlet would let me sleep. What is wrong with giving me the inspirations when I am awake? I ask you, is this too much to ask????
