Bead Porn


Whenever I make one of these big, honkin' bead-embroidered collars (or cuffs), a few of my non-beading friends refer to them as "Bead Porn". And maybe that's what they are. A little over the top, but totally wearable, and so much fun to make!

I haven't finished one of these since 2008 when I had Colden. There was just no time! But since Colden is nearly four now (I can't believe it!) and he's in preschool and I'm working full-time again, I managed to squeeze in some beading time. And now I'm completely hooked.

So one of my goals for 2012 is to finish the other six blank brass embroidery collar forms that I have sitting on my dining room table. I've already got one of them started from back in 2007 - I had to set it aside when the nausea from the pregnancy got so bad that I couldn't sit up for very long - so I'll be working on that one this week.

First day back to work for me since the holidays, and Kathy and Kevin and the girls go home on Thursday. It feels like they just got here! And while I'm sad to see everyone go back to Reno, I'm craving a return to our usual routine.

I can't wait to see what your next one will be. Yes getting back to normal has its drawbacks but I need it too.
