View Full Version : Being a pig - my B-day S&T!

10-02-2004, 11:45 AM
Hey everyone. I know there's already an S&T for today, but I thought I'd be a thread piggie and have my own since it's my birthday (31). Ugh, I'm now officially 30 something. I swear, the years have just flown by since I had my DD and now I'm aging at the speed of light. Whoever said, "If you want a real measure of time, just watch your children" wasn't kidding!

The first 2 beads are florals with butterfly murrini. I've had such a fun time making these - I love these murrini - it just adds that little extra something special. These beads are over 1" either way.
The second picture are 3 pumpkins. I've been making these for pendants that I'm giving away to people. I love to give other people things on my birthday, and these are perfect gearing up for my favorite holiday - halloween!(since I'm not talented enough to make a halloween set like so many people on here. I'm loving all of those sets up here lately!! )
The 3'rd picture are 3 bumpy hollow beads. I just always have a lot of fun making these too. These tend to get pretty large for me as well!
Who knows what order these will come up in...
Thanks for looking and have a great day everyone!

Thank you everyone for all the warm birthday wishes! It was so sweet and made me feel wonderful. :D It was just one of those birthdays....
I'm just kicking back with my favorite beer to end my day so at least it's ending well.
Thanks also for all of the nice comments on my beads. And thanks for letting me be a thread hog for the day!

oh, p.s. - I can't take credit for the murrini. I'm not that talented OR patient to pull something like that off. These were made by Mavis Smith. I bought them at the Bead Bonanza here in MI last weekend. A little pricey, but I thought well worth it.

Beautiful!! I love the florals with the butterflies. Can you or someone give me an idea of where I can learn how to make murrini like that? It just amazes me.

Happy Birthday. I remember the feeling of 30 something. I'm 38 now and beginning to see 40 in my headlights.
