Beads! Beads! Beads!

These are my fiber beads for the Fiber Art Traders group. We had to make 5 sets of 5....this was more fun than I expected and soooo easy! Now my brain is spinning trying to think of how I want to use the beads I get in the mail!....Any ideas?

The snow is almost to my knees! But...shovel I did.....and now I am back inside ready to work on my trades for Fiber Art Traders!

My kids are happily zoned out in front of's my time to play!

My ladies for the Flat doll trade are eagerly waiting to go to their new homes! I loved this trade! I drooled over everyone's dolls and love the 3 that I am getting! They are awesome! This trade brought out the designer in me....sometimes I miss those days B.C. (before children)

....then reality hits and I remember what I didn't like about creating bridal and evening gowns:) that's another post for another day....I am off to play:)
