Bead Fest Pity Party
You can play along on your blog or the Creative Bead Chat Facebook group.
All weekend - Sale & Giveaways. I've joined up with some of my beadmaking friends to offer discounts for the weekend and I will be hosting a giveaway each day for gift certificates to my website.
Friday - Bust your Stash. On Friday we going to go into our bead stashes and pull out something that hasn't seen the light of day for a while. If you'd been to a big bead show, I challenge you to find something from a past bead show purchase. You can share a photo and story about it. Create something with it or give it away on your blog or Facebook page.
Saturday - Inspiration Adventure. Get out of the house and find something to inspire you. You can go to a farmer's market, craft show, festival, museum, gallery, bead store, antique store, walk in the park - whatever you can fit into your weekend that will inspire you. I'm planning to attend a Fiber Fest that is not too far away. Share photos from your adventure.
Sunday - Class of One. Pull out a jewelry book and try one of the projects in the book. Go through a few books and pick a project. How often do we really do that? For me the answer is hardly ever! I'm going to pull out Kerry Bogert's Rustic Wrappings and try my hand at one of the new techniques in her book. Share your results with us. We'll also share links of our favorite online tutorials.
That should keep us busy and our minds off Philly! Who is going to join me? I'm looking forward to having some fun and being inspired together.
