Bead Soup Blog Party 2017

 

After a short (2 year) hiatus, the Bead Soup Blog Party will once again be in full swing! I’m so excited to be back as a part of the original bead swap, and love what the host, Lori Anderson has chosen as a theme …

roselicious

According to Lori,

“The reason I chose this BSBP to be a Bead Hoarders edition is because 2016 was made with not much beauty and a whole lot of horrible. A crazy election no matter which side you were on; horrific events throughout the world; deaths of many icons …”

“… I would like to start 2017 by opening our hearts to hope and beauty and true gift-giving. I don’t want people to send just anything, but something they love and would imagine brightening the day of someone …”

“… I want this to feel like a true giving of the heart. Paying love forward to a person you may not even know.”

 

Especially in light of recent events, I can’t think of a better theme than that!                    Stay tuned for good things to come 🙂

december 2016 design challenge

With the year coming to an end, so, too, do the monthly 2016 creative design challenges hosted by Dry Gulch Beads. This december installment will be the last, and consists of a cheery, festive, bright palette …

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, there didn’t seem to be enough time to create a new piece to submit for the challenge, although I did notice that a necklace designed for a previous Bead Peeps Swap n Hop seemed to match the palette quite well (with the replacement of one bead!), so I would like to include it for this month’s submission 🙂

This necklace is made from a madascar sunset moth focal piece by Debra Jeffries and features the colours represented in the challenge … candied orange, rudolph’s nose, frosty the snowman, he’s a mean one mr. grinch, and sugar plum fairy.

Thank you so much to the hosts of this challenge – Dry Gulch Beads! It has been a fun and challenging year and I look forward to what they may come up with in the future!

Until then …

Best Wishes for a Happy New Year, and see you soon!

Discover Color Of The Year 2017

Talking Interiors

The Pantone Color of the Year represents a certain rejuvenation. It is the annual announcement that wipes this year’s color slate clean and forecasts what shade will refresh the design world in the year ahead.
Incidentally, that’s exactly what the 2017 Color of the Year represents: refreshment, rejuvenation and rebirth, according to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. This year’s youthful hue is also grounded enough to be neutral against the many other storied shades we have a history of loving.

Pantone has chosen greens in the past for Color of the Year, but never one as bright as Greenery, which is meant to evoke thoughts of flourishing foliage and, in turn, fresh beginnings. In 2013, the Color of the Year was Emerald, and in 2010, the green-blue Turquoise, but both hues were darker and more subdued than this year’s color of choice.

“The person who would…
