Weather or Not...

Due to our wonderful Las Vegas windy and cold weather 
I had to reschedule a second photo shoot with Reanna my new model.  
I am hoping the wind will die down for a Monday morning shoot.  
I am behind listing new items on Etsy because they look so much nicer on a human being. 
(And especially one without goose neck and age spots for sure!!)
I can't wait to show you my new boa scarves made with a 
a really wonderful new yarn Bodega by Trendsetter Yarns.
Here is a peek at the yarn.
I had a wonderful surprise this week, 
an email from Barb Delaney, assistant editor for Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine.
She notified me that she was returning my Mixed Media Jewelry entries
 for the 2012 Artisan Search for which I was chosen as a finalist
and that they had photographed one piece to include in the Jan 2012 issue. 
This is my second publication this year- so exciting!! 
I can't wait to receive my magazine!! 
I don't know which one they chose. 
These were my entries:
My "Ophelia Cuff" inspired by the Art Bead Scene Challenge based on a painting - "Ophelia" by Redon
"Peacock Necklace"-Inspired by Nature; Feathers Challenge presented by Humblebeads 
"Woodland Fairy Bib Necklace"- Inspired by Nature- Forest Floor Challenge - Humblebeads

"Woodland Fairy Cuff"- Inspired by Nature Challenge- Humblebeads

I want to thank the Art Bead Scene staff and Heather Powers at Humblebeads 
for providing the challenges that inspired me to create these pieces. 
Where do you get your inspiration? 
I just finished reading an article in the new Polymer Arts Magazine by 
Christi Friesen about Creativity.  
She is spot on with her advice on how to get inspired and stay inspired.
How do you tap or feed your creative nature?
Send me your ideas in a comment 
and I will enter you in this
One of a Kind Crocheted Winter White
with Red-Orange Flower and Green Leaves Cuff
I will randomly choose a winner next Saturday, Dec 10th 
and ship it in time for the holidays! 
The white yarn is part elastic so it stretches to fit 6 to 8 inch wrists.
Get your comments in by Friday Dec 9th at midnite!! 
I also want to thank all my new customers 
who made my sales at the Artist's Boutique the best I have had so far!! 
I hope you all enjoy your new hats, scarves, fingerless gloves and cuffs. 
Have a Great Week!! 
Heather- Aquariart


  1. Congrats on your second publication! I can't wait to find out which of your gorgeous pieces they chose to photograph and publish. I love the challenges that ABS puts on and other bloggers. I especially love Lori (Pretty Things) Bead Soup Blog Party! Lately mom has been inspired to make masks and I am working more with the beads. We will have to see what next year brings us in inspiration.
