Sadly summer is coming to and end, but there is still a lot to look forward to! I am currently running another huge 20%-off sale on Etsy. Sale runs now through Sept. 5, 2017. Most ready-to-ship beaded dog pins, jewelry, beading kits, patterns, and artwork will be on sale. No coupon code needed!
Also, here is a quick peek at a small beaded tree I just finished. It was created by first doing bead embroidery around a P-shaped piece of felt using several different shades of green seed beads. I did several rows of freeform peyote-stitch across the center of the P. This tree will eventually be stitched to a canvas just a bit behind the larger tree. If you would like to see more progress on my Russian bead-painting, please check out my Facebook photo album. Next, I need to work on the relief aspect of these trees, but I do have a plan..We’ll see if it works.. Stay tuned!
Dear friends, I have been thinking about the subject of gratitude lately. I often stay up late doing bead embroidery feeling incredibly grateful that I have discovered a craft which brings me so much joy. I am also grateful for all of the amazing friends I have met along my creative journey, all of the places I have traveled, and for each and every opportunity that has come my way.
So, to express gratitude, I have decided to provide FREE access to my Intro to Extreme Bead Embroidery tutorial when you sign up for my e-newsletter. Shortly after sign-up, you will receive a link to view the PDF file in the Final Welcome Email. I hope this tutorial will inspire you to try the art of bead embroidery!
I have also decided to lower prices on all beading patterns and kits on Etsy, Amazon, and Google Books. Beading patterns are now priced at $0.99 and $1.99 across the board, in English and Spanish. Now you can learn how to create some of my most popular beaded dog pins and pendants for a fraction of the original price!
If you have just stumbled upon this post and would like to learn more about me, please check out this recent feature on the Caravan Beads blog. Someday I will make it up to Maine to check out their shop..
What are you grateful for and what are some ways you express gratitude? 🙂
