Sarcasm Has Another Contest!

I have really missed connecting with all of you. There, I said it. However I have had some issues with my health and a death in my immediate family, in addition to losing two Facebook friends. So, this week I am dedicating my blog to Larry Linson, Sr., a wonderful beader, gifted computer programmer, and an amazing friend to me. Many of you know him from the beading groups.

I miss him very much. So, I promised you last time I would show you what all I have been working on since the last time I posted anything.

Sarcasm Has Another Winner!

Happy Independence Day America! For those of you celebrating, PLEASE be courteous around pets, and especially near any former combat veterans when it comes to fireworks!

I was just experimenting with the larger peanut beads and some right angle weave and this is what I came up with. The peanut beads are seafoam green, and I used 8/0 blue metallic iris and 11/0 galvanized copper to … Read more

Sarcasm Accepts Challenge Entries!

This week, Bello Modo did a very thorough one, along with a review of each in their own blog here. I highly recommend you check it out! And did you know that Potomac Beads will be carrying the new Czech DiamonDuo Bead 2-Hole Diamond Shape Pressed Czech Glass Beads in just a few days? Allie Buchman of Potomac Beads Hagerstown, MD store describes them as a “softly faceted Kite shaped bead.” Wheeeeeeeee!!!!! What a week! I never expected such a response to my first ever Bead Challenge! The prize package from Potomac will be in this week and I will post pictures of exactly what beads you will be winning on next week’s blog. As far as the Bello Modo gift certificate for … Read more
