My Giving back





(I had to delete the tutorial I first had up because everything looked blue. Chris converted my original .pdf file into a .jpg for me so hopefully it all looks good & NOT BLUE). dot

There are so many wonderful people out here on the Wide Wild Web (how I picture it in my head but without Artemis Gordon) who share so much knowledge & information that I thought I'd try my hand at doing a tutorial. I belong to a Yahoo Group called BAD (Beaded Art Dolls) which is currently doing a challenge called Beaded Stuff animals. I did a tutorial for them to get the poor unfortunate stuffed creatures sitting all alone on the thrift store shelves begging to be something pretty ready for beading or other craft projects. Hope this give you the itch to bead a beanie & join me in my obsession.

ME TOO...loved that show. Dr. Loveless was so Steampunk. I always think of Wild Wild West when I see that word. Not the movie (which was terrible) but the television show with Ross Martin as Artimus.
