A sweet photo that does not depict actual reality.

New listings: Happy Accident

These "May Circus" beads have a different finish than my usuals. It's almost matte, due to the fact that I'm all out of my favorite sanding material and I had to use a lower grit. The finish looks very appropriate with these soft pastel colors.

Weekend: Paint and beads

I had a very productive weekend! But there was no paint on beads, just paint on walls!

I've been thinking about painting the dining room and upcoming guests were the catalyst for finally doing it. I bought the paint Friday night, took the cat to the vet on Saturday morning, painted for a bit, got a haircut, and returned to painting until late while listening to a week's worth of Stewart and Colbert on the laptop's crappy speakers. Today was Clay Day, then it was back to Lowe's for paint for the kitchen which seemed terribly undone compared to the bold new dining room. Best of all, having a paintbrush in hand and the serendipitous discovery of the half-filled can of the baseboard color finally motivated me to finish the baseboards that have been partially painted for about five years! I posted on the PPCG blog, spread grass seed on the bald patches in the yard, and after all that, managed to squeeze out a few more beads and get them listed. And it's only 2 am!
I'll post photos of the refreshed room once it's back in order and my new picture frames are up on the wall.
But here's a sneak preview to tide you over...

And here's a new pile o' beads...

Beads: Everybody likes a circus!

Here's how a set of circus beads comes into being...

Step 1.

Step 2.

In between step 1 and step 2, there's a whole lot of randomness.
