~ A Pinch Of Beads~

~ Just when you think that that you are long past Something... That a craft addiction given up... A simple act of achievement of gathering a confusion of small pierced bubbles of glass that once gave such satisfaction and sense of fulfillment... That it is put away.
To gather no more shine and shimmer. The Spark and Vitality dimmed to become a simple drawer of unused grimy pellets.

Then years later when one of you Bestest Friends (Gobnart) has found that she is to become a Grandma for the Very First Time !?!...
Well there comes a time when things are Rootled out. Thought about Thoughtfully. Searched for and Sought after and when Suddenly---Craved !!
To Become a Beader Again...

Yep...My name is Karen...And I am a re-lapsed- uhm- backslided- nooo- uh---collapsed back---nah----
I Got It !!
Reanimated in My Love for Beads !!There... That said- Elaboration...
Gobnart was going to give Her second daughter a Baby Boy Shower... And wanted to have handmade tokens or keepsakes to be given as mementos at the Event...
And being ever more than willing to dive in feet first...Yours Truly Offered to make earrings and/or cell phone charms...

Exhale- Inhale-Exhale- Inhale- etc.

So Merrily off to commence shopping with my Invisible Pickinick Basket to the Online Market.
Etsy. Shipwreck Beads. Ebay.
With Other various and obscure Bazaars visited at length.

And My Goodness Sakes Alive... did I immerse myself in the Acquisition of beads. Truly I think there are factories in Czechoslovakia that are working overtime because of me.
All my purchases began to arrive in minuscule wrappers from Hither and Yon... Mostly Yon as I remember. And I began to plot and plan and bead. All the old skills were a bit rusty but soon recovered their thought forgotten shibboleths.The Baby Boy Showers gifts were so quickly summoned together that my hands had to just keep connecting. Over thirty sets of earrings and twenty-six Cell Phone Charms. And all were one-of-a-kind.And the rest were shared out to Friends and Folks around my small hamlet.Then after looking at the Baroque and Luscious remnants...I decided to make myself a new Earring Wardrobe. With a bit more exuberant style and dash to suit my Peculiar Fancy .'Cause you have my Faithful Avowal...If you weren't acquainted with how my jib is cut... my inclination is well into the Realm of Uncommon.To disclose that if One were to venture out... say in Their pointy granny Oxfords with black plaid laces... Their black Velvet calf length dress with the hem made of eleven inches of Ebony Venise lace... And at least seven earrings in... Along with five perfectly rational Golden Bands on fingers and thumbs... (And certainly this is a subdued Day outfit) people make a point of coming over to speak ... Well so be it !!These earrings are what I term 'Pomegranates'- A favorite fruit !!
Thus once more I have dabbled in the Beaded world... And will not be leaving this Glass Extravagence anytime in the Misty Future !!extravagance anytime in the Misty Future !Ex

So...
Wrapping up todays exciting installment... the lovely fluffiness of Alice, the Princess from the Palace !! compulsory Portrait of fluffiness of Alice from the Palace...

Now this is making me think I could also get into beads ... but I must not go there as I do not have the time for any more crafts! You obviously have a talent for it though.
