Sunday Night Inspiration...It's Blogger Time!

It's that time again! I'm stretching my creative time till the last possible minute. Getting beads out now to see what I can create in the next hour or so.

A personal challenge because I would like something new to wear tomorrow. I better get moving!

Here's some last minute inspiration to bring the weekend to a close. Our bead and craft bloggers are sharing LOTS of fun and inspiration this week starting off with bezel effects paints! 

Thanks to Cyndi Lavin for sharing her step by step process for making this fabulous bezel!

Beading Arts
The new Bezel Effects paints make a great centerpiece for bead embroidery!

It's a mail art call!!! Come on over and join in!

Carmi's Art/Life World
Carmi utilizes a "saved" crazy quilt block and turns it into wearable art in this special blog post.

Eileen - The Artful Crafter
Knit and crochet combine in Red Heart Sashay Yarn. Did you know you can create "crocheted" scarves, shawls and the like without picking up a crochet hook?

Mixed Media Artist
Cyndi has come up with a fun variation on the ever-popular infinity scarf!

Resin Crafts Blog
Wondering what is better to mold with? We have a post showing you how great Jewelry Clay and Jewelry resin can be!

Snap out of it, Jean! There's beading to be done!
Making tiny jewelry takes just as much thought and planning as designing full sized regular pieces. See Jean's blog for the details!

The Writing and Art of Andrew Thornton
Participants of the Inspired by Reading Book Club share their creations inspired by "Bridge of Birds" by Barry Hughart and "The Journey to the East" by Hermann Hesse. 

Fishers of Men
Cherie uses the "Fishers of Men" passage to help create mixed media prints.

Getting Organized
The jewelry studio is next, but right now, Crafty Princess has at least her home office organized!

There is no way I could go down and make something to wear for the next day. It takes me too long to put any thing together.

Hi Shaiha! I bet you could. I sort of "cheated" because I ran a black chain through a shiny black pendant then cut the chain in several places to add a few beads on headpins. Simple! :)

Catching up on my blog reads and saw this pendant. It is so charming.

I would love to challenge myself to a speedy project, but as Shai mentioned, I too am very slow. Maybe some earrings LOL

Love the pendant :)
