Tuesday's Treasures and Arwednesday with Arwen

Well, oops! I was so busy yesterday getting ready for my first ever cooking class that I didn't have time to post the update on my latest project. Sorry about that, but here it is! You can see that I have started adding beads in a cross-weave-type motion to add stability, weight and strength (though you may have to click on the photo to enlarge it). I am now done this layer and will be starting the next layer today. I am very excited, though it does mean it is almost finished, and that makes me sort of sad - I love making these bracelets even though they are very labor intensive.
Here is the view from the top - you can see that I have filled in the whole of the second layer, giving it a more solid, filled-in appearance.
I took this photo this morning, as I am in one of my insomniac bouts right now and 4AM seems to be when my body just cannot stay in bed any longer (despite being awake until at least 1AM, lol). Arwen is, of course, very happy about this as it means that I spend even more time with her. Here she is "Smeyezing", which means smiling with her eyes. If you enlarge the photo, you will see that her eyes are not closed, but making that very happy look with them scrunched up. I thought it was adorable :-)

Tune in tomorrow for the run down on a great cooking class that I did last night with good friend Melody, in conjunction with Nature's Way Select Foods.

That's all for now, have a great "smeyezing" day!
and Arwen


  1. Your beading is amazing!! I think I will stick with earrings though, just not patient enough to tackle something that delicate.
    I have an award for you, please come to my blog to get it!

  2. Actually Arwen looks overjoyed, probably proud of her mother's amazing bead work.

  3. Thank you Audrey, and thank you Barry! You are both too kind :)

  4. Arwen, your squinched-up eyes are so cute!

  5. Much as I love to work with seed beads I could NOT make a bracelet like that as it would frustrate the heck out of me. So kudos to you for a beautiful job.

    Great shot of Arwen too...cute as ever!

  6. That bracelet is gorgeous Meghann! And of course Arwen is so adorable smeyezing - well, Arwen is adorable no matter what she's doing!

  7. That bracelet is gorgeous!! Arwen is a cutie pie too!!

    We posted our cool aware meme that you gave us today. Mom is a slacker and we're sorry it took so long.
