There's nothing quite as fly
as a sugar high.

Accidentally in Love.

Something to help you
Bead the Blues
this Monday morning.

This design is up for grabs!

Accidentally made these lovebirds
while trying to make a grumpy blue bird.

Put this on a short chain with a snap clasp.

Must confess I've worn it a couple of times
to test the strength of the design -
and it's all good!
Be the first to say
Get in Line! It's Mine!
and it's yours!

Out of Breath.

My full-time job's been
working me overtime,
forcing me to suppress my barf reflex.

To those of you who're reading this at work (slackers),
 here's something to help you look busy:

How many words can you make
using the letters above?

And no cheating.

Bead Breath in Spanish!

A bit of shameless self-advertising, forgive me.

Studio Ghibli Weblog featured my Totoro designs
a couple of days ago, and I'm so amused!
The post is entirely in Spanish,
and OJM kindly sent me this hilarious Babel Fish translation.

Watching Toy Story 3 today! 
The ratings are through the roof!

Whoever else is going to the movies, remember: 
it's rude to talk with your mouth full
so be sure to stuff it with food!

I watched Robin Hood a couple of weeks ago
and the girl next to me not only forgot her snack,
she also forgot to shut up.

I wanted to give her a knuckle sandwich.

Slinky is snakey. 

Too many gummy snakes
can give one a curiously strong desire
to chase one's tail.

 Hamm is money hungry.

 The reason why loose change never made it
as a very popular movie snack is that
it tends to give one the runs.

 Etch-A-Sketch's palette is set on
snacks that are black.
And burnt toast.

Mr. Potato Head goes cannibalistic. 

If you were a toy,
what would your movie snack be?

Toy Story 3 in 5...

Rex sneaks a snack.

(Ok so it's a Rex Fail.
But I like how childish it looks.)

It's fun to guess what each toy's
preferred movie snack would be.
In this case, it's the other theatre patrons.

For The Birds.

Inspired by the best Pixar short ever.

As much as I can't wait to watch Toy Story 3,
I'm really looking forward to seeing the new short.
Apparently it's called "Day and Night".

Alice in Lalaland.

I hate wearing watches
so I tend to lose track of time.

But with this baby,
time stops for me!

Inspired by Alice in Wonderland.

(No cow lick in this design,
the chain slips right through the gap!)

Getting the Bead Rolling.

The ones that got me off my butt
and hooked on experimenting with beads again.

My Pac-Man was missing a limb for forever.
Then he lost another because I kept
crashing into furniture.

But it really was when Kim asked me to fix her
ribbon pendant that I thought about
doing some new designs again.

So thanks for obliterating the ribbon, K!

The updated design is slightly different,
and hopefully stronger.

Does anyone know how to
increase the strength of
hama bead designs?

Emmy, you'll like the chocolate side :)
It looks molten.

You Barf What You Eat.

Cupid has a case of rainbowlimia.

Thursday, June 3, 2010


And that, children, is what falling in love feels like. 

I can just hear the other cherubs saying:
"Mooommm, Cupid's gone and ate his heart out again..."

Twitter Stinks.

Now that bead breath's on it,
barfing updates!

Social networking has that effect on me.
