There is still time!

Time to get in on our newest version of our inspiration challenges! Deadline is December 22nd!

I've copied the post below, and now you can go back to shopping our fabulous "We're Moving Sale!" I just got back from a little spree at the store as well  - did far more damage than I intended to, and now I must get busy making gifts! :-)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks to Lyndsey, who had an awesome idea for a new version of our Inspiration Friday posts.  We think that one week just might be a wee bit too short of a time frame. Also, we want you to choose the inspiration from one of the many colour inspiration sites out there. On Thursday, I posted about design seeds. There are of course many others out there. We think this will be easier for you to challenge yourself, as you're given a palette to work with, rather than just a picture.

Here's how it works. Once a month, I'll post a new challenge start time. You've got about 30 days to choose your palette, and work on your project. Before the cutoff date, send your pictures to us, and we'll blog your inspiration source, and your finished project.  Feel free at that time to send us along any other info you want to include. We'll publicize your blog or etsy/artfire/etc site as well.

For example, I think I'll make mine from this one:





You can make your jewelry/beadwork out of any materials you wish. This can be stringing, wirework, lampwork, polymer clay - whatever you wish!

Let's start now!
Since we're getting close to Christmas, and I don't really want to be blogging on Christmas eve, I'm setting the deadline to get your submissions in by December 22nd.

Here's how to submit:

 * Send an email to jennifer@beadfx.com with a picture of your inspiration source (or a link to the source)
* include an image of your creation
* include any contact information you want us to include in the blog posting

Happy Creating!
