Bead and Craft Bloggers

It has been a busy week for the Bead and Craft Bloggers!  There's a wonderful array of different projects, experiments, experiences, kits, challenges, tutorials, and all kinds of creative goodness!

Breathing new life into components, Ann and her mom experiment with adding surface treatments using Vintaj Patinas and old papers with Mod Podge.

Sometimes you find something that speaks directly to your heart and you know it's the things you've been waiting for your entire life... and sometimes you don't.  Tammy talks about how she thought she'd be a Blythe doll customizer, but realized it was just not meant to be.

Cyndi has used Nora Toth's design from Bead&Button magazine to create a bead-woven flower pendant using dagger beads and put her own spin on the pattern.

The road to monetizing your passion can always have unexpected challenges.  Terry discusses her journey with her Etsy shop and questions whether she should keep it going or give it up!

Sarajo teams up with her husband each month to create a new Honey Do List challenge.  Eric shares a photo and she creates something based off it.  July is a flutter of activity with a beautiful crow photo as inspiration.

In this post, Andrew shares some of his insect-inspired art beads from his private collection.

Allegory Gallery launches their new kit, Coral Coast.  Inspired by sun-kissed beaches and warm days spent beachcombing by the water, the new design challenge incorporates shades of peachy coral, pinkish reds, and creamy ivory.
