Beaded Snowflakes

I've also started making some beaded snowflakes this week. I still haven't figured out how to capture their sparkle...




The white one is iridescent seed beads and bugle beads, plus some random blue pearly lined beads. The blue ones are a mixture of silver lined seed beads and turquoise silver lined seed beads, plus some cobalt iridescent bugle beads.

My first raggedy doll!

She's not exactly traditional, but I was working with what I had and I love her! Please ignore the fact that her arms are a bit wonky and the stripes on her legs didn't quite line up. She was my "tester" doll, so I already know things I'll do differently next time.

(as always, you can click on the pics for a larger version)




Closeup:



She was made with my stash fabric, with hand painted socks and shoes (using fabric medium added to my paint) and hand embroidered face and heart:



Here's a closeup of her little heart:



She's not perfect, but I'm pretty darn proud :)

Gratitude Friday

I know...I'm behind in this. So, here we go again!

Anyway, today I'm thankful for:

Creative messes




Time to create




The little details in life that make my heart smile



Happy Friday, everyone! :)
