Inspiration #50



I had this on my wish list for Christmas, but I couldn't wait. I got my copy before Thanksgiving. From my old favorites (David K. Chatt and Linda Fifield among others) to my new discoveries (Maggie Meister and Jeanette Ahlgren to name but a few), I found myself lost in wonder at the inventive, innovative and joyful expressions using my favorite medium. I've had to savor this over the course of several weeks - there's just so much.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Belinda! I've been carrying it around in my book bag for weeks - I can't seem to put it down . . . every time I look through it I find some new detail I missed the time before. It's fascinating.

  3. Oh that looks yummy! Wish those beautiful picture books were not so toxic for me. :-P

    Glad the Universe responded so positively to your opening yourself up to commissions again!

  6. Ok, so I didn't receive this book for Christmas...but I did receive 'The Art of Bead Embroidery' by Sherry Serafini and Heidi Kummli, and 'Creating Bead Weaving' by Carol Wilcox Wells. I'm still one very happy little elf :) Hope your Christmas was fabulous!

  7. Hey, Belinda! My Christmas was all I could hope for and much, much more - and you mentioned two of my all time favorite books - no beader should be without them!
