Alrighty… it's time to report in:
Did I meet my goals? Not quite. But I made very good progress. For my shop staples, here are my totals:
I sculpted 52 sleepy critters.
And, I started painting 22 sleepy owls (sculpted a few weeks back).
I didn't do as well with new bead ideas. But that's okay — sometimes new ideas just don't come easily. I did make some of my current beads in new colors though: 5 Queen Anne's Lace pendants, and 14 (soon to be) painted speckle beads — I'll be testing new paint mixtures on these.
Scheduled for tomorrow, I have new crackle beads — they are going to go with a certain pretty copper component from Kristi…
So all in all, things did not go as perfectly as I'd hoped, but they did go nearly as well as I expected. I'm about 2/3rds of the way to where I want to be and this was only the first two weeks. But, I'm encouraged and very excited about what I can accomplish in another two weeks! There will be some more schedule tweaking and possibly an adjustment of my completed bead goals.
And… I almost forgot to mention, my sisters and I had fun trying out a new brownie recipe on my "day off"! Yum!
Yes, it was a very good beady two weeks! How did you all do? Did you find/make more time for creativity? Did you create anything new? And most of all did you have fun? Do share!
