Day 7

I am going to have to keep up the blogging. It has been 7 days in a row, so I am on a roll. To today I am going to start out with a quote that I received in my e-mail this morning.
Quote of the day:
'Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.
She multiplies and
enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.'

I thought to myself, how true, how true.
Anyway I am here to show you yet another design. It is a piece I made about 5 years ago. It is a combination of 2 drop peyote and a square stitch. As you can tell my inspiration was the button I used as the clasp. What other does a frog do but jump from one Lilly Pad to another.
Like I said, I did this about 5 years ago, and that was when I was first experimenting with off loom weaving. It has faded a lot since I made it and I will have to redo it. I had used the Toho Treasures in a metallic, and it didn't hold the color very well. I will look around and see if I can find another metallic green that is 'permanent'. Not sure I really trust that word when it comes to metallic seed beads.

The lady that owns the the shop where I will do a wire class, called me yesterday wanting to know the price of the pendent at was hanging on the class wall. I told her that I hadn't priced it out, but it belonged to her. I had used her supplies to create it so it really belonged to her. Well, she sold it for what I thought was under-priced, but it belonged to her. She sold it for $40.00, I would have sold it for a little more, but she is not I. Anyway now I need to make another one for the wall. I will go to the store today to use her supplies and make another similar to that one. Here is the picture of the one sold.


  1. hahaha love your quote of the day!


  2. I agree with most of the quote except the groceries bit. If some guy gave me groceries, expecting a meal, all he'd get back is some attitude :D

    I love your frog bracelet, very cute. I haven't had any luck with metallic seedies either.
