So, it seems I blog when I challenge myself in some way to do a blog hop.
The last blog entry was an Art Charm Swap Auction blog hop. I am not much of a blogger, nope I am not. I am a ceramic bead maker, a mixed media artist, jewelry maker, paper loving, easily distracted soap crafting artist. I do try to focus on one thing, but it never works. Let me tell you how I got involved in the latest Blog Hop. I have a friend, her name is Diana, and she owns Suburban Girl Studios. She makes gorgeous art beads, and other jewelry. She’s quite the funny one. Every time I see her at bead shows she gives me a time of it. She has been encouraging me for a few years now to try getting into one of the bead shows. She means well, and so my usual modus operandi is to avoid the issue by avoiding the person. She can’t be avoided, besides I just think she is so much fun to be around and also very helpful. The truth is she does have a point, I really should try and make enough beads to try to get into one of the bead shows. I will one day overcome my apprehension and lack of confidence.
Anyway, Diana put a call out on Facebook for a blog hop using Waxed Linen. I actually, bought some after a mini class with Erin Siegel. I got a bit distracted and left the waxed linen in the drawer for another time. So, when I saw Diana’s call, I told her that I have a blog and would like to be part of the hop. She said ok, and here I am finally using my Waxed Linen. I decided to pull out some of my ceramic beads I made, and a ceramic pin I was making and needed to finish. I made the pin, and never finished it. I wondered if I could use the linen to complete the process. Sure enough, I liked it better than my original idea for the piece. Enough about me on to the other artists that are part of this blog hop. Get ready to feast your eyes on all the creativity in this bunch of artists. Enjoy this blog hop and be inspired.
