Going GREEN!

Post by plumbun on Sun May 03, 2015 10:01 pm

WOULD LOVE to do a 30-day design challenge buuuuut 1) am "afraid" to take some bracelets apart, figuring i'll just put them back together and 2) what if i miss a day ... or 20! maybe it isn't too late to try, but in the meantime, here's some GREEN play w/ available beads...



had to hurry b/c a caterpillar was literally inching my way  affraid



(from loop: kitten, dichroic ice, milky quartz, turquoise dot, cactus, lt. blue braid, green prism, st bernard, silver mountain, sweet christmas bead, lab, forget me not w/bud, blue desert, deep bubbles, romulus and remus, turquoise dot, chai bud, green flower mosaic.)

You're afraid of caterpillars? But they are sooo cute... or do you have some dangerous poisonous ones? pale

gorgeous dear Plumbun, sunny and I really love to see that older green flower pendant used, I got it too and never use it, now I might have a reason for doing so, it looks so lovely!
Well, I could not do a 30day challenge, never ever...at the moment I am hardly doing new combos but just try to pimp old ones a bit. Keep them coming, I'd love to see them! sunny Very Happy cat

we got tons of maybugs, my cats are going wild when they see them outside on the balcony, ever so difficult to get in or out without them entering, my cats would make the biggest mess in 2 seconds...

I love maybugs in chocolate form though... Very Happy

Love your ur green combo!

I don't keep many combos together. I keep most of my beads in trays arranged by color and keep photos of combos I like so tat I can put them back together quickly.

I've always wanted to do the 30 day challenge, but there are days where it's challenging enough to get myself and my kids out the door on time that I don't think I could handle another challenge Laughing

I really like your greens and blues Smile

Plumbum,  Thanks for posting the link to the Tartooful blog.  She has some really pretty bracelets.  I am not up for the 30 day challenge involving taking my bracelets apart.   Some days I can barely get myself put together and out the door.  Was it last year that we had a challenge of taking the same bracelet and changing just six beads?  That was enough work for me.

Your green bracelet is beautiful.  You can't go wrong with green.  I love the fact that TB makes such a wide range of greens.  We could have a "green" bracelet challenge.

I can totally understand why the caterpillar would walk all its 1000 feet your way - your bracelet is so beautiful, it probably wished to take a bite Smile I love you
