Color Challenge

Well, today is the reveal day for the Challenge of Color 2011 hosted by the lovely Erin of Treasures Found.   Now there are many wonderful bloggers taking part in this blog hop, so click over to Treasures Found for the full list and start hopping.  I will be visiting all the blog starting Thursday (my next day off)!  Here are the few pieces I managed to get completed.  I do have a couple others in process and in my head so will be continuing this color scheme for a little while longer.

Now here is the picture I received to use as inspiration!

Glass Headpins

The wonderful Sue of Sue Beads issued a challenge using a pair of her beautiful glass headpins.  I was lucky enough to be picked.  A second bonus was that the pair I was sent was also in my color challenge colors!

Here are my earrings:

Some pretty flower earrings for your viewing.
These are solid black flowers, and are very pretty.  But try as I might, I could not get a picture I liked!

Hoo are you? #60

Hoo Are You?

Here are this week's questions! 

These are a repeat from week #14
1. Do you type on a keyboard the correct way or do you peck like a cute little chick?
I type on the keyboard unless the space in front of my keyboard is overflowing.
2. Typically how long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
For work - about 15 minutes, For nice dress up events about 30 minutes
3. Do you prefer lip gloss or lipstick?
I only use chap-stick
4. Do you take clothes to the dry cleaner or wash them yourself even if they say dry clean only?
I own no dry clean only, but would take them to the dry cleaner's
5. Do you prefer Wal Mart or Target.
Hmm...Wal Mart for everyday/grocery, Target for seasonal/gifts/dollar section

New Updates

I know, I really need to work on my header lines.  I do have some new jewelry to post.

I also am going to try a color challenge from Treasures Found.  I love color.  I read everything I can get on how to mix colors, then I do not use any of it.  I stick to the same colors I know.  I also thought this would help get me out of my rut I am in, where everything I make is already spoken for.  Between new house, new job, new school, and family illness I have not had the time or energy to sit down and just play with my beads. Or clean my desk, where I could.  I have gotten some wonderful new beads that make me happy just to look at them, but I want to play also.  That is all in the plans for this Thursday!

I will get the pictures up of my Halloween earrings ( I know late), and hopefully a picture of B dressed up for Halloween.  How was your Halloween?

I also have some cute Christmas earrings to finish taking pictures of, and then will post.

Until later,
