With a little help from Karyn (whom I totally talked into purchasing The Beader's Color Palette!), I picked this lovely deep fall palette for the Margie and Me this week. It's gorgeous.
Leonardo was the man, I must say. Margie stresses the importance of using the umber colors as a background with punches of red.
Oh, by the way, in her book, Margie gives exact Delica numbers for all the colors in her palettes. Just another reason to spring for the book, doncha think??
Okay, I've been thinking a lot about Margie and Me, and here's my question....and you guys have got to give me feedback...if I gave you some extra time, say stretched out each challenge to two weeks, would it be easier to play along? I've had a lot of people say that they want to play, but don't have the time, so what if we do two weeks instead of one? Let me know what you think...
This weekend, I worked on getting some new Carnaval Pendants in the shop.
Last week, three of these went flying out of the shop so I thought I'd replace what I lost with some new colors.
The first I call Modern Teal.
The second uses deep purple czech beads and AB purple seeds. I call it Rich Royal Purple and is a result of this purple fetish that I've been having lately.
Last but not least, allow me to introduce you to Heather. She's a little brash, extremely outgoing and likes to command a lot of attention. I asked her nicely to become a broach, but she wasn't having any of it. She demanded a place where she'd get a little more attention. I'll let you know when I'm ready to let her go, but it's just not quite yet.
Finally, I have to show you some pics of what my bead buddy Shirley made for Margie and Me, this cute little puffy beaded bead in pink and green. He doesn't need anything but a cute little chain..
Enjoy your Monday!
