It was a BEAUTIFUL day September 10th! Although it rained early on, it soon stopped and was gorgeous from there on! Congrats to Hally for winning the Drawing for a beaded creation! She chose the Praying Mantis, known for bringing good luck!
Also, I’ll be getting ready for the Halloween season here shortly, with some new (and returning) beaded creations!
The Midwest Conjurefest is this Sunday, Sept 10th from 12:00pm – 6:00pm. This Free family friendly event has venders, tarot readers, my featured creatures, and more! Come on down, see all the goodies, meet the friendly people, and have fun!
Also, I will be doing a drawing at the end of the day on Sunday for a chance to win a FREE custom beaded animal of your choice. (You do not have to be present to win, though you will have to fill out the drawing form in person.)
For those unable to make Conjurefest, or do not live in Nebraska, I will be doing an online special for the 10th only – showcasing some of my Halloween creations before their official release October 1st – 31st. Mos of these creations featured will only be available for October Only, then they’ll be gone till next year! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet them, or take them home to be part of your family!
Today’s Creature Feature: Fiona The Phoenix
Fiona’s beautiful red, orange, and yellow feathers radiate warmth – as if from a fireplace. Her long tail feathers can wrap around you in a warm embrace, providing comfort and nurturing. Although phoenix’s traditionally represent Rebirth, Fiona also represents the heart, support, and inner peace. By keeping Fiona in a place that’s quiet or where you sleep, she will help you to fall asleep, meditate, and/or provide you with silent company.
I attended last year with my beaded creations, and am going to again this year! I’m pretty excited because I love the environment there, everyone is so nice, AND i’m in the process of creating a new beaded pattern special for this event!!! (HINT: It involves eyeballs O.O ) It’s going to be held at the Conjure Shop in Omaha Nebraska 🙂
Stay tuned for more updates, and information about some of the beaded creations I will be featuring there!
Have a GREAT weekend everyone! Thanks for reading!
I will be working on my next eBook for the Ashley’s Diary series 🙂 (The first being – Dear Diary: Today I woke up a werewolf). I will have it completed by June 30th and have it up on Amazon by July 1st ^.^
I’ll be making Red, White, and Blue themed beaded animals and tissue paper flowers to sell in the old market this weekend (near the Come Paint With Us! event). The beaded animals will also be available on my square store for those not in the Omaha-Metro area 🙂 (I don’t put the flowers on there due to their fragile nature when shipping)
So yeah, that sums up most of it! (For this weekend anyway lol)
Have a great weekend! Hope to see you out at the Festival!
A warm welcome to Cerberus, the newest addition to the fantasy beaded animals! He may be tiny, but he’s a force to be reckoned with. Cerberus is the three headed dog of mythology that guards the gates of the underworld, which makes this canine triple trouble! This little guy was fun to make, and being my own pattern, very satisfying as well ^.^ I used brown tone, gold, and red seed beads and wire to create this little guy. It took me a few tries to get the pattern right, though it was well worth the effort!
Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for reading! 🙂
The prototype thunderbird came out really well 🙂 At first I wasn’t sure how the four wings would come out, but they turned out well and it isn’t too top heavy either =^.^= yay! With the help of Purrcy the kitten, I was able to finish it in a couple hours. I used bronze colored wire and gold, dark gold, and metallic gold seed beads. My beaded mythical animal collection is growing, and I’m happy to say I’m a proud beaded animal momma 🙂 (as well as furry animal momma).
Now that Thunderbird is done, I’m going to focus on xmas. I need to still finish xmas presents, as well as make some to sell. For those who live in Omaha NE, I have some of my beaded animals at Rossi’s Hair Salon. They have been very supportive, and have helped me to raise money for donations (this year was the veteran’s home and a retirement home). I’ve also personally donated beaded animals to the Children’s Hospital in Omaha 🙂
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Thank you for reading, and I’ll talk to you again soon!
