Echo Creative Club - August

Okay my friends this should prove to be a very interesting post as I am currently drinking a dayquil/nyquil cocktail.  Yes I believe I have the BeadFest Flu.  Oh but even with how crappy I feel it was so worth it!

So here we are again it is reveal time for the Echo Creative Club hosted by the fabulous Jeannie.  I know I have thanked her many times but really each month when I receive my package I am again delighted and sparked with creativity, so once again I am thanking Jeannie for giving me this opportunity.  You ROCK girlfriend!!!

So as I am in my flu remedy induced stooper I realized that I did not post what Jeannie sent me.  August is such a hectic month for me and add on Camping and BeadFest I think I reached an all time scatterbrained high!  I am sorry for not sharing these with you earlier.

Now I am not sure if you remember or not back in March I used some beautiful peeled paint beads of Jeannie's and unfortunately I had issues with the finish because I was handling them so much during my weaving process.  Well I have to tell you this was not the case this time.  I did start out weaving around them and none of the finish came off.  Although my finished design is far from where I intended I wanted to let you all know my findings on this matter.  

So here is my "Hot Buttered Popcorn" bracelet. 

I have been playing around with some beaded beads of my own and they worked so perfectly with Jeannie's beads.  I love the colors and texture of them mixed together.  I am looking to make more of these beaded beads to put in my shop so I am looking for any good feedback you can offer.

Please hope over to see everyone elses creations.  Some of our participants posted yesterday as they are Hoppin through bead soup today.

  8. Hi Kristen,
    Ok now you did it I want popcorn! lol
    Beautiful bracelet love the beaded beads with Jeannie's polymer clay beads. I say go for putting the beaded beads in your shop and a tutorial for those of us that still need a pattern to follow for most projects. Get well soon.
