11/8/18 Earrings, planning, and more!

This week I made two pairs of earrings, I started a present, I finished the gift I had started (that I still can't show since I haven't mailed it yet), and I made November's component! I would call it a success! While on an adventure to look at the beautiful fall leaves I had the opportunity and stopped at Off The Beaded Path in Forest City, NC. If you read my blog you have seen a link for Kelly Dale's YouTube videos. She is the owner of the store- and FYI it is great! I was overwhelmed with the selection of shaped beads, but it got my beading mojo working again! I bought this great color of SuperDuos while I was there and managed to get two pairs of earrings made out of the bag! They are very Carolina Panther colored! Go team!

  

The first pair of earrings is made from my "Beth Duo Earrings" pattern. It is in the tabs at the top of this page and is free if you haven't tried it and want to! The second is a Dodecahedron made with SuperDuos and 11's- one of my favorite beaded beads :). 

I also made the 4th component for my International Beadweavers project!


Next month's color is pink and it should be a cute component, this weeks was a struggle since I had limited colors of dark red.

Next week I am going to make a "Christmasy" beaded bead. I bought these beautiful "lipstick red" GemDuo beads while at the store and I can't wait to turn them into a beaded bead. They are metallic, red, and gorgeous. I want to make a bead like this one except with a holiday color scheme. It should be awesome! 
  

In addition to making beaded things, and finding my mojo at a bead store, I made a plan for next year's blog. I am not going to share it until my December 27th post, but there is now a plan! WOOHOO!
