This is what's been keeping me busy since Craft Camp (I can't believe I've been absent that long). Time-wise it's mostly Bead & Button preparation.
I'm teaching six classes, none of which was cancelled (I've had a class cancelled here and there along the way). I've taught of them before, so the instructions were already written but there are always colour-ways to be devised and stitched and I know how when I overthink colour combinations it's not as good as when I just grab beads semi-randomly and if I could overcome that when planning kits it would really save me a lot of time and frustration but there you go.
So in short (actually not that short) I've been:
Making samples for Bead & Button. (Not so dramatic).
Having some health issues (nothing life threatening, just annoying and time-consuming), still ongoing and resolving. (Drama, kinda).
Preparing for Bead & Button. (Not terribly dramatic).
I went to LA to visit my kids and we ate a lot of really good food. (Not even slightly dramatic except for the lines at LAX which I thankfully skipped because TSA Pre yay).
Bead & Button preparations. (Starting to panic. Is this drama?)
Immediately upon my return my drains backed up (raw sewage, to be quite clear) into my basement. The carpets were ripped up, drywall was cut away and it's all in the process of being repaired. (Very Big Drama at the time).
My studio is in my basement. The area where I keep my beading stuff and work on classes and kits and samples.
It's sort of all over my dining room right now.
With less than a week to go I'm in full-on panic mode. I mean, it's sort of justified for a number of reasons; in a word: time.Lacrima.
Chou-Fleur which as usual look way better in person than I can capture in a picture, especially the one on the left: it's very murky, just my jam
Buttress. I actually have another in the works but Time.
