Eek, Holidays!


The Christmas season is fast approaching! Eek! So much to do, not just for Maked and getting ready for our winter craft fairs, but also the personal crafting that I aspire to each year to try and inject as much handmade love into the season as possible.



I was looking through some pictures of my older beadwork projects and came across some of my beaded ornaments.

I have mixed feelings about these - sometimes I love them, sometimes I'm not a huge fan (too fussy for my taste sometimes), but I do love making them. I always make it up as I go, so the end result is a surprise to me.


I did about a dozen of these as wedding favours for my sisters wedding a few years ago. They were a big hit but I really burned out while making them and haven't done any since. It's been a few years though, so maybe this year I'll do another....

I think they're lovely! I would put some of that stringy tinsel stuff inside for an extra pop of color.

Hmm - that's an idea. I've often toyed with the idea of putting something inside but could never think of anything that would work!

the ornaments are really beautiful... I haven't seen anything like them. I can see how it would be a lot of work.
