Originally, when I signed up for the Bead Soup Party, I thought I’d have no problem putting together a piece in time for the party. But then two weeks ago, my entire family came down with the stomach flu at various times for a week, which left me on the couch for several days either nursing a little one back to health or recovering myself. Last week, my youngest celebrated his second birthday, and we had a family party which meant an entire week of cleaning and preparation.
I was in a bit of a panic as the weekend drew closer and I still really didn’t have anything put together. I started to get the inklings of an idea at the beginning of the weekend and yesterday I visited one of the local craft stores for some inspiration to go along with my idea. I knew I needed a few more beads, and I found the perfect strand of Apatite that looks like it will do the job.
I also picked up some chain that I discovered this morning are unfused links. These links will be perfect for my design.
This morning, I finally had a few minutes to sit down with my sketch book and put together some ideas. Nothing amazing, but I think things are finally coming together.
