A Few of My Favorites

No matter how long we're apart my blog continues to call to me. Once again in a new environment without a crafty group to create with I've signed up for another blog hop. Super excited as always. While we wait for partner announcements, and I wait on my belongings to arrive from the other side of the world. Let me share a bit about myself.

My spouse's job dictates that we move every 3ish years. Just after Christmas we landed in mainland Japan. First impression:  it's cold! I haven't experienced winter in about 7 years. So I am freezing and my skin looks like the surface of a desert, but I find something new each and every day.

As in life I am always up for new challenges. Over the course of many blog hops and swaps I've stretched my limits of skill and taste in beadwork. There is no longer anything I don't work with. I'm sure I've yet to work with certain shaped beads as they seem to create two new ones each time I sleep. I love all colors now though I've always been drawn to blues, metallics and coral. If I had to pick a favorite bead it would be anything in 11/0 also called size 11 seed beads. I love peyote so they are a go to for me.

I wish I had pictures of any recent work, but with an international move I haven't been beading. Soon all my pretties will be here and the world be right again for another 3ish years. Take care Loves. You'll hear from me again soon.
