A little face time!
It's that time of year! Sassy Art Goddess' annual beaded face swap is happening this month. If you have not participated before, I suggest you do your darnedest to get involved. Every year there are more and more amazing participants and faces!
I beaded up this one last night for the swap and hope to get 2 more done before the deadline. You can do it too! They are small (no bigger than 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches) so they bead up pretty quickly. The polymer clay face was created by Jen Martin at GraphixOutpost
Check out Carol's blog for all the details and please join me if at all possible!
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
