April Sneek Peek

Here is a sneek peek at my April page for BJP. No, I am not a beading maniac (well, maybe I am). I have a perfectly good reason for beading ahead. I'm hoping to get a kit for this year's BFAC (Beading for a Cure). I figure if I can get the kit, finish it and send it off right away, then I can't lose it like I did last year. Duh! Wouldn't you think I would quit putting things in a "safe" place?

This page is totally unusual for me. I hadn't a clue what I was going to do when I started it. If you look back at most of my beading, I don't use a great number of colors in one piece. This one has everything but the kitchen sink thrown in. Think tropical; think fiesta; think Jamaica, etc. HOT colors!!! I'm having great fun with it. More when it is finished.

I spent the weekend being pea green with envy as one of my best friends was at the coast with her husband. I am craving to get to the ocean. I feel like a lemming! Don't get me wrong. I don't begrudge them their anniversary trip, but they wouldn't take me. Can you believe that????? I promised I would leave them alone. All kidding aside, I hope to get to the ocean soon. It seems to renew my soul. Does that make sense to anyone?

You are certainly are on a roll woman! I am about halfway done with February and felt like I was doing so well. But, like you - I'm hoping to get in on the BFAC thing.

All your pieces are looking wonderful Arline.

Yes, I was surprised to see the tropics on you page! I love it. Makes you feel fun to see it.

Hey, Look on your desk..right under the mail accumulation, and your address book...is that last year's BAC kit? ~lol~

You are not right, Carol. I actually found it the day after I was supposed to send it in. Talk about frustration!

Ooooh, colors, lots of them. Can't wait to see the finished page. You really are beading full out, aren't you?

Beady Zoo said...

Very bright, Arline -- just what we all need after winter grays, whites and browns. Can't wait to see the finished piece!

And I know just what you mean about getting to the ocean! Hope you (and I) get there soon ...

Ellen said...

Wow you are really flyin along with these Arline - this one looks interesting, so colourful looks like Spring is bursting forth in all her glory to me!!

Barb said...

Oh my gosh, I *love* it! What a beautiful set of colors.

I know exactly what you mean, the ocean restores my soul too. Mabye the next sunny day we get I'll make a trip out there for both of us!

Your work is excellent! Tropic Carnival just sings - it's loud w/o being "loud". When I put something in a safe place, I have made myself a word doc on computer that reminds me where my safe places are, and what's in them. Then if my forgettery becomes stronger than my memory, I have a failsafe backup LOL.
