I am an artist. I love color, texture and working with my hands.
I guess that’s why I love challenges so much. When working at a challenge I can get creative but with some rules and a deadline. I have found that I need that discipline; otherwise I don’t always venture into my studio and get work done as I should. So that’s why I think I gravitate to all the challenges and blog hops.
Unfortunately the challenges seem to come in bunches. I might have two in a week and then not another one for a couple more weeks. I need MORE structure!
So I am instituting my own structure, but I need some company. Do you want to join me for a play date?
* BFF is BeadingFriend Friday. It is my weekly interview-type blog post featuring some of my favorite artists. It has been a weekly feature here on Fabric of My Life.
Should you want to come play, here is how it will work:
1. I will send off to you a package of my handmade components (beads, charms and/or focals) along with a few coordinating beads and findings.
2. You and I will both create a piece of jewelry using those same select components plus some of our own stash. You do NOT have to use the all the pieces I send but just the focal bead/charm(s).
3. On a set date (about two weeks later) we will both show off our designs on our blogs, with links to the other’s post.
