Countin Down The Days

DSCF4227Children all over the world are counting down the days til Santa comes and Michelle McCathy’s grandson Evan is no exception!  His grandma made him an advent calendar with micro bead pizzaz!

Each tin has been beaded and numbered and leave it to Michelle to mix them up all up to make little Evan learn his numbers!  Ü    DSCF4231I’m sure that this lucky kid is having a blast discovering each of the treasures inside!

Another Dose of Ornament Inspiration

I am so amazed by the plethora of things that have been shared by my Beadie Buds over the years! The website Art Gallery is just a sampling. I wish that I could just magically upload all of the many photos and tutorials that have been created by our Yahoo group members.

Here is a bottle cap bracelet created by Evelyn Spikes that totally inspires me:

Wouldn't our Christmas collage sheets look neat framed in the windows with ultra fine micro beads over them?

And here is an elegant ornament created by Julie Shaefer (daughter of Beadie Bud Francine Domshine-Hill):

The next post will have some wonderful ways to use tags in your Christmas preparations so stay tuned!

Hugs and Happy Holidays,
