Beadie Movie Friday: Pirates of the Caribbean!

Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides premiers today. I am a big fan of the movie series and will be seeing this one as soon as all of us have time!

In honor of this premier, I designed beadies to resemble the characters from the movies:

Jack Sparrow:
Elizabeth Swann:
Will Turner:

Davy Jones:
Hope you enjoy these new beadies!

Looking for a color you can't find in the craft stores? Try Bolek's Craft Supplys! They have 70 colors of pony beads in 2 sizes (6x9mm and 4x7mm). Be sure to tell them you heard of them because of my site!

Movie Beadie Friday: Beauty and the Beast

On Fridays I will be featuring characters from a movie. Most of the time these will be cartoon movies, as is this one. Today's feature beadies are from Disney's "Beauty and the Beast."

The Beast:


Mrs. Potts & Chip:


Beauty and the Beast is one of my daughters' all-time favorite movies. My younger daughter watched it over and over and over again for months, and will still watch it occasionally. It's a definite classic in our house!

Watch the movie while you do the beadies for even more fun!

Sunshiney Day!

The sun is shining so beautifully today!

Here's a sun beadie critter:

Sun 2:

How about a bird to celebrate the birds singing so sweetly?

Trio of Birds:

And a ladybug that you might find while gardening:


Finally, a snake that you would hope not to find in your garden!


Enjoy the sunshine, if it's shining where you are! Take your beads outside to your deck or porch and soak up some rays while you bead!

How About Some May Flowers?

Spring is finally here in Oregon (maybe--we can never really tell, but the sunny days are occurring more frequently and the rain is more sporadic), so how about some nice flower beadies for your backpack, purse, or keychain?

Here is a nice bunch of flowers:
Orange and Blue Flowers,
