The winner announced this week, Karen M. of Boulder Creeek, California wrote,“Nature inspires me, with its shapes, colors and rhythms. Wind and raindrops dancing together through the air, a redwood tree reaching toward the blue sky as a crow floats downward, the arms of its black coat outstretched. Nature is infinite in its creative inspiration. She is my muse.”
Beautifully stated!! The sky this evening was so amazing, I wish I could have pulled the car over in rush hour traffic so I could stare at it for a while! Thanks for sharing Karen!
When I was getting on the Artbeads.com online catalog earlier, I couldn't help but click on their sale items and found this great "Venetian Blown Glass Penny Bead - Orange and Aventurina Latticino". My thoughts turned to holiday ornaments immediately and these beads are certainly large enough at 27mm by 25mm, to adorn some kind of festive structure!! I couldn't wait to share this one!! :)
