So why would it be any different for packing and moving my studio, right?
That's what I thought! So rather than trying to pack and move all my itty bitty treasures in my studio, I found this wonderful lampwork treasure from my friend Juli ( StudioJuls if you're new to my blog, or you've been hiding under a rock). The swirly iridescent spiral on that focal just mesmerized me... so much so I forgot (wink, wink) that I should be packing.
Instead I pulled out all my purples and greens and just lost all track of time (days, weeks even) but the end result is total worth it. SO in lieu of throwing caution to the wind and pushing all packing aside allow me to introduce you to Carnival! A splash of fun in every bead!

Thanks all for taking the mind wandering journey with me! And now back to your regularily scheduled program.
FYI, if you'd like to try your hand a bead embroidery, THIS is STILL the best book I've found to help you get started. Why? Because it shows you two different methods and allows you to create your own style, stitches and method by blending the two!
