2023 marks the eighth year that my husband Eric has been giving me a design challenge each month to get me out of my comfort zone and to help clear out my bead stash... The Honey Do List! (Y'all, time really does fly!!) I know that I'm not the only one who loves a good design challenge, so I'm hoping folks will continue to play along with us!
Here's this month's inspiration and what Eric had to say about it:
I struggled a bit this month to find a suitable picture, mostly because we are in the depths of white snow, ice, gray skies, and all-around "Blah." So here are some majestic Redwoods from Northern California that we got to see this summer. I had never been to the Redwood Forest and was blown away by the size and beauty of this area. Pictures don't do it justice!
I had a few other ideas and art beads on my bead mat, but time ran out on me... story of my life! Considering how busy this month has been, I'm pretty pleased that I got this much done. I wish I could say that February will be slower, but that's a lie. Eric and I are hitting the high seas on the Bead Cruise soon with a brief stop at Disneyland beforehand. Should be a fun time and I'm sure I'll be telling you all about it when we're back on dry land.
Now it's your turn! Please add links to/photos of your own creations below. I love seeing what everyone else is making too. Check back on February 1st to see what Eric dreams up for us next!
