Yesterday I was very excited to find the newest issue of Simply Beads in my mailbox! I have been waiting for this day for almost a year. You see, last August, I jumped on the opportunity to write an article about ceramic beads. A real article, not just step by step projects. And after months of organizing, collecting the beads for photography, and writing, it is finally out. I will tell more about it in the upcoming weeks as it hits newsstands. Right now it is just out to subscribers.
I am also happy that I had two projects in the magazine. One is Fairy Flight, which is shown above. It is the first project that I have done using one of my fairies, which is strange, because they are probably my oldest series of beads. I have been making these little gals for a LONG time! I am really proud of this design...it is full of clay and images of flowers and flying things.
Speaking of flying things, yesterday I felt a little cooped up in the house, and it was lovely outside, so Chuck accommodated me with a fine outdoor barbecue dinner...some chicken breasts and grilled veggies, with a sweet teriaki sauce. Yum! Anyway...I was outside, cleaning out the old car that we are going to donate, and as I fished around in the trunk, a hornet buzzed out and gave me a couple of bites. OUCH! It happened so fast and I didn't get fully stung, with the stinger and all, but he got me on my neck and finger. Geez, how can such a small thing hurt so much...its like a little electric shock! I am ok, I was just startled...I detest buzzing things with stingers! I took some benadryl and cleaned up, and then enjoyed my delicious dinner, just a little shaken.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
