I LOVE a creative challenge. It helps push me to try new things, expand my mind and test the limits of my abilities. Sometimes, just taking a break from my normal medium is enough to spark new ideas.
I recently saw a challenge posted on Facebook from Lisa at Pine Ridge Treasures. It's in the form of a blog hop, which is another thing that I have always wanted to do but never had the opportunity! Let's face it.. my blog is more of a personal captain's log than a memo to the crew. I'd love to get a few more people to have a peak at my work and understand why I love doing what I do so much.
Lisa sent me a mystery bag of beads. Needless to say they where far out of my comfort zone. I normally work with large gemstones and wire. These are a bunch of dainty glass seed beads and pearls. and all PURPLE!
