Beaded Face Swap


Have you heard of the annual Beaded Face Swap hosted by SassyArtGoddess? If not, do yourself a favor and read all about it here. I participated in it last year and had a blast doing it. It is a wonderful way to get to know other beaders and a fantastic way to own a little piece of art made by someone else.

The four pictured here are the faces I beaded up for the swap last year. I'm going through my stash now to see what tickles my creativity for this year. I hope you'll join me!

Thanks for the comments.

Glad to hear you're doing it again this year Bobbi. I hope you'll join us Kathy!

Okay, Grace -- you talked me into it! Tomorrow I am going scouting for polymer clay and face molds. Or maybe I'll come up with something different . . .

These are WONDERFUL, Grace!! Can't wait to see what you'll come up with this year!

Kathy - YAY! I'm so glad you're going to participate. It really is so much fun and I'll tell you - I've never made a polymer clay face myself, I use something from my stash.

Monica - I am thrilled I received your face last year, it's so different = I just love it.

Angie - here's to hoping you can find time in your busy schedule to make a face or two and play with us!

Leaves of Grass

This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
