Don't know what I am going to do with the blackberries, but the plucking itself gave me such a good feeling, like I was a young girl all over again.

It's a long dangly pendant in turquoise and purple colors, very bold colorcombination, which turned out better than I dreamed of. I have made this big beaded bead before, and I really enjoyed how it turned out, so I guessed it would be okay to make another.
So here are the rules for this give-away:
1. Post a respond to this post and state your personal favorite color combo, this way you can inspire people in stepping out of the monochromatic palletes.
2. Spread the word on your own blog, site, friends and family and tell me when you linked.
3. Sit back and get back to me in 2 weeks.
You get one chance for the respond and one chance for the linking. So, two chances! I will put all the entries in a big bowl and draw the winner on Sunday 9th of August. Please check back then, to see if you're the lucky one! And I hope I will be inspired by the posted colorcombo's and make some lovely new things, maybe even for future give-aways!
I hope you like this Give-Away! Good luck to you all!

It has been 15 years since my dad made his last piece of art (airbrushed that is). I have been nagging about it for two years; "Dad, you should really get more creative again. Computers are fun, but it's so much nicer to get your hands dirty," and when I look at his hands: "well, dirty from spraypaint or pencils I mean, not from the refills of your printers." I am so so so glad to hear that he has started again! I haven't seen anything yet (I never show my jewelry to anyone until it's finished as well...) but I know it will be fabulous! He doesn't want to draw anymore, which is a shame I think, but maybe that will kick in once he himself is a granddad.
Off course, when you are painting with your grandpa, your grandma cannot stay behind...

Further on; we went to the North Sea Jazz festival on friday. We went to see BB King and Duffy. BB King was phenomenal, it made Duffy a little bit mellow. We had a very great time. I was a little bit bummed out for not bringing my camera, but I didn't let it ruin my night.
On Saturday the whole family dropped by to celebrate my birthday. So I spent the half day in the kitchen, making cakes, sate and little meatballs. Just my type of a great day! The night was fabulous and very cosy.
And last but not least, I am reviewing my stash, because I have to go to a shop on saturday. They want to sell my jewelry, so I have to make it look really good!
Well that's it for now....

This one has a large focal beaded bead and two smaller ones on the dangles. I wanted to make earrings as well, but I figured it's allready quite a piece, I don't think it needs earrings.I crocheted the midsection of the necklace and the pendant can be removed from the necklace, so it's a bit more tuned down.
This one is for a swap on swap-bot as well.

I used firepolished and smooth glass beads and sea beeds. I would love to get feedback from you!

I have spent several hours cleaning the house, doing laundry and vacuming, and still I can't seem to manage to get it all clean and fresh. I love the sun, but sometimes it seems like it's just pointing out everything that needs to be done in our home. And all the cleaning time is consuming my creativity time. Everytime I get at the attic, to do some beading, I realise I have to clean up there as well, in order to get the creativity going. But then again; if I am going to clean up, there are so many things in the house that needs to be done first...... It's a vicious circle I tell you!
I have to get 4 jewelry items done this week for Swap-bot, so I have got to break it! (the circle I mean, not the jewelry....)
I have to make the photoalbums from our vacation.
I have to start up an Etsy-store
I have to sort out my jewelry for a store that wants to sell them
I have to take pictures of my newest items.
Tonight I am going to spent some time in the sauna, and get a massage and a facial. Perhaps that'll help to get a little bit more grounded.....
