Alas, I am not as crafty...
as I thought I was! This week at our Chicagoland Craft Collective meeting, our incredibly talented instructor Melanie Silver was put in charge of teaching us how to make super cool beads out of individual beads that we would strand. I went in with an open mind, but as soon as the instructions were passed out and I saw the maze of diagrams and numbers I had flashbacks to high school geometry and that was it, I was out! The photo that you see with this posting is as far as I got, you can check out what the completed project was supposed to look like by checking out Sarah Moore's Blog She received some of these little gems during our Christmas exchange. We both agreed that the $3 fee for the project was fair price for the lesson learned that we need to stick with our favorite medium for a while...paper! Make sure you check out Sarah's cards on her blog...she is ever so creative!
