I have many mantras (you make your own happiness; find your bliss; did you dent the sidewalk?; it's a long way from your heart; think outside the damn box; it is what it is; you get what you give; karma's a bitch), but this time of year - the beginning of the holiday season - my main mantra is BELIEVE. I believe heart and soul in Santa Claus, and my holiday decor reflects that. When I found this Mill Hill Buttons & Beads Winter Series kit I just knew it was for me, and I will complete it before Christmas!
I've been working on this piece since September 29, 2011, and today I finished it!!! It is a National Parks kit of the Teton Cathedral Group (8 5/8" x 12"). I used all the included DMC colors, but I did all the wildflowers in beads. I will frame it as soon as I figure out mat colors, frame color/style, etc. I am soooooo glad to be done with this!
I think my next project might be something small...very, very small.
My DH and I decided we would not get gifts for one another for the holidays as we had remodeled the kitchen this summer and figured that would cover "gifts" for a good, long time. Well, I couldn't let Christmas pass without giving him something, so I made this for him:
I made it from a Mill Hill Buttons & Beads kit. He collects wizards and dragons, so I figured it would add to the collection nicely. :)
I am now back to working on finishing up my Tetons piece....I WILL get it done soon!!! :)
