Amoeba or Raindrop? - You be the judge

A couple of months ago I found these great wrap sweaters. I love them and I bought them in three different colors. However I needed a brooch to dress them up and keep them closed if needed. Here's the brooch I made.

The rivoli is an incredible shade of blue/green. While I was beading it, I kept thinking it looked like amoeba especially when I added the fringe. But now when I look at it, it reminds me of a rain drop.

What do you think?

Sharing My Heart with You

Like many others I've been overwhelmed by the holidays and the new year. Blogging wasn't the only thing that wasn't getting done on the list. Now that I feel like my head is above water, I will be trying to get back on the blogging horse.

The last few weeks have been filled with lots of activity on the beading front and I'm excited to start sharing some with all of you.

A friend of mine started this great website for 'tween' girls called iTwixie. iTwixie is the ultimate online hangout for 'tween' girls. They inspire and unite girls ages 8-14 on a site that is safe, age appropriate, and fun. Since I have a 9 year old daughter, I love that she has a safe on-line place to go to interact with other girls her own age and have fun while doing it.

I had talked to my friend last year about developing a project for the site. Finally, after a few starts and stops (on my side), my bead embroidered heart pin project is debuting today on the site.

I hope you'll go check it out and share it with any 'tween' girls in your life. The project can be viewed by anyone. I'm also offering kits in my etsy shop for anyone interested.
