Beading, crocheting, clay-making, writing, opinionating... two sisters who do it all!

OOoohhhh! I am either OUT of my MIND! Or getting brave. I haven't decided which, yet. On top of the Virtual Craft Show I'm taking part in (see ad to right) I've decided to be part of a design challenge for the Art Bead Scene November Challenge. I actually have some beads the colors of this months' challenge and thought I'd be brave. Now... to come up with a design.
Then, a friend of mine asked if I had thought of making and selling lanyards for those who have to have a company ID badge on/with them at all times. I actually had and was planning to make that one of the things I sell in my Etsy shop (not that she was aware of this! HA!). So, I decided that I would attempt my design around a lanyard! I can make more than one item, it appears, so the first will be a lanyard. If that makes me happy, then maybe some glasses holders or earrings. I love these colors for the challenge, but, then, I love Autumn and her many colors as well. So, as soon as the design is complete and put together, I will be sure to post the pics... well, I have to. That's part of the rules to enter the contest.
I may not survive this, but at least I've gotten out of my comfort zone and tried something new! We all should. Otherwise our minds atrophy.
