We're in for a winter storm here in Northern Alberta. Yay!!! Perfect bead weather if you ask me. Just don't tell my husband how much I like it afterall he has to work in it. It's not terribly cold. Only about -12C but there's a wicked 37km/hour wind coming from the east so it 'feels' like we're on Antarctica. In fact there was a snow drift blocking my front door this morning.
Everybody's lamenting on facebook about purchasing snow shovels for the impending dump of the fluffy white stuff. Luckily I live in the country and we use a piece of equipment that you sit in to move snow! And luckier yet I don't know how to run it!
Anyhow, when the weather turns like this I go into the craft zone. All happy and giddy, sipping tea and playing with my stash. I hide out in my studio and create beautiful things. Yes, I have a studio - I'm a very lucky girl. And if you want one too all you have to do is use the kitchen table as your work area for several days in a row and pile your craft 'crap' in front of the fridge blocking access to the beer and your husband will construct one for you also!
Seriously, today I will finish the four unusual pieces on my work table. I've ventured into Tibetan beads and tribal-like necklaces. It's quite a challenge as I really don't know much about this stuff in particular but do I ever love how the pieces are turning out. I cannot wait to share them with the world! My inspiration for these pieces was from the work of a gifted artisan named Deborah Snyder found on ETSY. Allysarosedesigns is the shop name. I'll fill the link in when I can get onto that site but you can find her by searching her shop name.
Have a great day everybody and make the best of the weather and go make some snow angels and run with the dogs - they seem to love the weather.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and Namaste.
