And now for something completely different

Are you old enough to remember when they used to say that on the Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons?
First I'd like to thank all of the people who have been stopping by and writing such lovely comments about my September piece. I worked on it for so long that I started to not care for it myself so it really did wonders for me that so many of you enjoyed it. Thanks so much.

This year I decided to stretch myself with the Bead Journal Project - and so for October I'm working in earth tones - It's really difficult for me as I think you can tell by the rigidness of the beginnings of this page. I'm hoping that I can work some of 'me' in there while still keeping with the color pallette. I so seldom use these colors that I had to go to the bead store yesterday on my lunch hour to pick up some size 6 beads. Even the store had a limited selection! I managed to find some that I liked (like I could even think of going into a bead store and not find something!) and began work last night. I've half wanted to tear it out and start over but Robin's voice whispers in my ear saying 'keep going' and so here is the beginning.

Isn't it amazing how Robin's little whisper comes to all of us now and then? That woman certainly gets around.LOL

I like the start of this page. Of course, I love to work in earthtones. Making a doll pin in those colors right now.

I am old enough to remember, lol!
I like the beginning too, but I'm also not a stranger to earth tones...and that wouldn't be the delightful bead boppers on meridian would it?

LOL - I went to Bead Boppers on Saturday for something else. The Bead Factory on 6th in Tacoma is the local bead store for my office - I have made it to Shipwreck on my lunch "hour" but I was too busy at work to be gone that long so Bead Factory it was.

Loved Rocky and the gang. And loving all these pieces. Can't wait to see what unfolds with this new one. Hugs, Chris
