Recently, in the forums, Beading Daily hosted a Flower-Inspired challenge. I don't normally enter challenges, and in fact, this is the first that I've ever entered, but voting starts today! My entry is in the Experienced Beader category and I would love your vote. I'm not going to post the picture of my entry here because I don't want to sway your vote. However, if you want to go look at my Flickr page, and then hop over to the Flower-Inspired Challenge Gallery I think you can put two and two together! If you haven't joined yet, it's going to ask you to before you can vote. I know it's a pain, but one of the upsides is some great weekly e-mails with everything from links to resources all the way to entire free beading projects. It's well worth your time to sign up.
(P.S. Be sure to look through all the entries, there is some amazing work in there.)
