About Me

I am an artist, wife and mother, paraeducator, yo-yo dieter, and small town country girl. I love singing in my church choir, computer time, beading and making jewelry. And I love enameling! There is something very magical about turning powder into smooth, shiny, and colorful glass.

Muffin Tin Challenge

I came across an intriguing challenge from the folks at the Art Bead Scene blog. The idea is to fill each section of a muffin tin with the beads and components to create a piece of jewelry. Since the picking and choosing is often the sticky part, this would be a way to have 12 projects already chosen ready to put together. That was the theory anyway. The catch is that all 12 pieces had to be done in a week! But a great bead filled prize was offered so I gave it a try. I admit it took me 3 days just to fill my tin but once I got busy, the jewelry came together fast. I finished all except one bead weaving project and one pendant that I just didn't like. Fortunately they changed the challenge to 6 pieces of jewelry so I can still enter. Wish me luck!
