I hope it will be worth the wait...

Just popping in to say hi. I have been making jewelry lately and some of it has been quite less than satisfactory. That got me to thinking, how about an "ugly bead project" so that's what I'm working on.

I'm not an athlete, or a "mathlete" for that much, and I don't like being put on the spot of having to compete with a group, BUT (and isn't that a big but?) I do love to compete with myself. So tomorrow in addition to showing some jewelry that I actually planned out, I will be showing you the first installment of the ugly bead project. I have lots of beads that sort of went in their own direction and I'm going to see if I can corral them back into my world.

Wish me luck and let me know if this is a phenomenon which exists only in my own personal galaxy, or if you have "ugly beads" also.

I like your galaxy, Susan! Can I come live on your planet? I don't make ugly bead thingys but I'm great at making ugly bears!
Loved your post. Very uplifting.
Have a great weekend!

Oh, they aren't ugly. They are eccentric. I know without even seeing them.

I'm not a mathlete or an athlete either. You can tell from my big butt. ;-P

Ugly beads....hmmm. Just call them eccentric, like June said, or speak of them as "undecided project inclusions"...because I really doubt you could make an ugly bead if you tried to do that! Competition with yourself is fun until "one of you" decides she would rather watch TV. Carry on!!
