I am getting very excited as my next trip to the USA and my second visit to the Bead & Button
show is getting closer, not to mention my teaching in New York at Beads by Blanche.
I have been busily writing tutorials for months now. I also did a new design I am calling my
"Erin Isles" collection and have been kitting, figuring out printing, labels and packaging for
these as well.
The pic on the left is my
Erin Isles - Forest Glen colour way.
The pic on the right is my
Erin Isles - Seafoam colour way.
I did do another colour scheme but wasn't happy with it so it was pulled apart.
Every experienced beaders can get it wrong sometimes.
There is such a lot of work involved when designing, writing tutorials, making and packing kits.
When travelling to teach there is not just one design to consider but many. I have not been one
for kitting my designs so when I travel to teach a mountain of work has to happen.
My intention - when I return from this journey - will be designing and kitting more regularly.
If I do this then when I accept another teaching gig the work will already be done - well that
is the hope !!
I have been bead-weaving now for some 8 years and I am still learning heaps, still getting
my act together, still loving beading - with a passion. I doubt that will ever change.
I will be posting up my travel pics along the way so stay tuned and see what mischief I get up to.
Bon Voyage to me !! LOL
