>Clean Slate


Thank you for all of your kind comments regarding my beaded Chevy fire truck. But, more importantly, thank you for your interest in my work. That alone is what motivates me to continue doing bead embroidery:)

Last night, I tried to clean off my little work table, and this was as clean as it got. But, you should’ve seen it before! Every time I work on a large piece of beadwork like this for 2 months, beads of all colors shapes and sizes start to pile up around me. And, that’s not all – mail, bills, and laundry pile up, as well. LOL!

Then, I looked at my kitchen table, and I realized that half of it had been taken over by beads! I swore this would never happen again, but since I live alone, I guess it really doesn’t matter… You don’t really need to eat at the kitchen table, right??

So, today, I’m going to work on cleaning up my beads, and organizing them a bit. Then, I’m going to contemplate my clean slate in hopes to discover what it is I really want to do next in beads, life, and love=:)

  1. >I think that’s just a sign of your creative endeavors! I currently have clay everywhere. In my studio, on the dining room table, in the kitchen. They’re all in various degrees of completion. I need more shelving! Maybe my hubby will get the hint and build some for me.

  2. >Awwwww. Everyone always leaves the sweetest comments. And, Sam, the finished fire truck measures approx. 12.5″ long x 7″ x 2″ deep at the nose end. It is the largest piece I have completed. Thanks for your interest=:)

  3. >I can hardly believe it took only 2 months for the fire truck. I’m looking forward to watching your next inspired work. And I have a question… My last husband has been watching the fire truck come to life (because I keep telling him to “look! look!” every time we’re both in the office together). He seems to think it’s a small piece. What is the finished dimension? He just doesn’t get it but he does love the fire truck (he’s a retired fire fighter).

  4. >”I’m going to contemplate my clean slate in hopes to discover what it is I really want to do next in beads, life, and love”Good luck with that! I’m sure it’ll all work out though. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next. Maybe a beaded RockDog 😛

  5. >LOLOLOL Ohhh MAN! That sounds soooo farmilar! Although with me it’s not just beads, it’s paints, stuff to do collages with (which I have never actually tried) everything under the sun! LOLOL I don’t eat on my kitchen table unless I have a friend over, which I don’t have many friends. Anyhoo, just wanted to let ya know that your not alone! PLUS, I think it’s worth it when the end result is your wonderful creations! YOU GO!!!! 🙂 *HUGS*

  6. >RD, those are some great ideas you came up with! I do have one piece in mind that will be inspired by music… And, Phoenix, that’s exactly how I try to approach beading – like a painter… 🙂

  7. >I love how you organize your beads by colour – as if they were paint on a palette – because that’s how I see your art: you paint with your beads.

  8. >LB! I can’t wait to see what you come up with next! It’s always a lot of fun to watch as your project progresses and the useful and interesting information that you provide with it is a blast!I’d like to see you incorporate your love of music into a project. Maybe a youthful Elvis or a colorful tribute to Pink Floyd…Whatever it is, I’ll be following along!
