A Hexagon Kinda Summer

This summer I got a bee in my bonnet and went crazy making hexagon that I affectionately call "Hexi." I made about 15 different projects and have 500 more in my head.

 This is a family tree that everyone in the family signed their name to and then I embroidered them.

This was a fun project.  I love aprons (but NEVER wear them).
This was a fun one to design.  Notice how the flowers look like they are falling off the apron.

This is the only thing that I have ever made for Maranda that she will wear lol!

I have only worn this a couple of times but I love my funky hexagon tie.

More bees to go along with my bee obsession.  Notice how the wings are 3D.

I am onto my new obsession now.  I am knitting and crocheting.  So fun!

Bee's Wax

 Bee's Wax

Bee's wax, tissue paper, fancy napkins, stamps, photos etc....    These are a few of the ingredients I used to make my bees wax collage last week at My Heart's Fancy in Edmond.  Robin and I decided to try this class out.  I wasn't sure that I would like it but am always up to trying anything new when it comes to art.   Well needless to say, I fell in love.  I wasn't looking for it.  It just happened!  

 This is what you need to melt bee's wax (found at hobby lobby).  We used a small iron, electric griddle, chip paint brushes, and loaf pans.

We started with a practice sheet so we could practice how to work with the thickness of wax and all the different mediums that we could use.

This one is Robin's, and it was exquisite!  It was definitely first place among the whole class!  So beautiful!

 We also used tags and melted crayons right onto the tag!  It was really cool.

Robin is in work mode.

So of course I had to drag some bee's wax home and try it for myself!

I made this one for my girl Leslie.

I made this one to go in my china cabinet.

Maranda made this one!  I love that she wrote LOVE -- EVOL!  She had fun helping me design hers. :)  Love that girl!  

Thanks Robin for suggesting the class.  I enjoyed being with you and love bee's waxing now!

Painted Farm Halloween Pumpkins

Painted Farm Pumpkins

We had so much fun at The Painted Farm tonight!  We painted and glittered pumpkins.  Mine says "BOO" not BO.  It was so much fun!  We all picked out different colors and sizes of pumpkins.   

This beauty is Tammy's.  It turned out gorgeous!

 You can't tell but we glittered our crows too!  There is never too much glitter!!!

This beauty belongs to my friend Michelle.

This great one belongs to my girlfriend Stacy.  She had excellent polka dots!

So proud of their pumpkins:)

Michelle looks so pretty in her fancy Burton Control shirt!!! I love her personalized pumpkins.
