Good Morning... Aren't these beads bright and cheery? They are the total opposite of how I feel at the moment, LOL! I have come down with Lauren's cold. My throat is scratchy and my nose is runny. I live is Rochester so the sun hasn't been seen in 14 straight days... just crummy all around. While snuggling a hot cup of coffee yesterday afternoon I looked at my mug and thought.. "Hey, this would make pretty beads." So my favorite coffee mug was my inspiration on these. I find inspiration in all sorts of places. You'll remeber my "Couch Cushion" beads ( inspired by my actually couch cushions ) and my "Pheonix" beads (inspired by image in a children's book). Finding new inspiration from your surroundings keeps the creative juices flowing. If you ahve a favorite object you would like to see in beads send me a picture and I will see what I can come up with!
