I was excited to get the email announcing the pre-order opportunity for BeadStyle's "52 Bracelets". I'm extra-excited because I have a bracelet in it!
If you click here, you'll see some of the pages that are in the magazine, and mine is on the "Wood Beads and Gemstones" page. As soon as the magazine is published and I get the bracelet back from the publishers, I'll have it up for sale on my web site.
There will be more tutorials coming up this year, but I'll keep those under wraps for now!
On another note, you'll see on the right hand column that I've started to Wreck This Journal. I am a VERY Type A person who also has a healthy dose of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and while that worked quite well for me when I worked in Organic Chemistry lab or while studying for MCATs, it's another thing altogether when you're an artist trying to branch out. I'd seen several bloggers using this book as an exercise, and thought I'd try it.
Today's random page was this:
OCD people also tend to be a little bit germ-o-phobic, but I promised I'd do what the book told me, so I bit a hole in the page, chewed once, and promptly spat it out.
I have no idea what that did for my creativity today, but we'll see.
