About this design:

Can you tell I'm obsessed with the half-and-half style. More stash stuff. The Czech triangles are actually a better match to the glass rondelles than the picture seems. The ribbon is LB and it adds some whimsy.

More whimsy with ribbon. The barrel beads are LB but I can't remember the name and I can't find them in our selection of Czechs. Must be lots of people liked them and they're out of stock.

    Thanks ladies!
    Now that BB is out of my life, my creative juices are flowing. Lots of things have been “waiting” and I was happy to work on them. The only thing I’ve done this weekend is beading!!! :)
    Oh no! I mistakenly forgot all the essays on my desk at school. ;)

    Very pretty Julie! The ribbon is inspiration! It pulls the colors out of the rondelles wonderfully well (I have some of those rondelles myself … love them). ;)
