Let it Snow Beaded Christmas Bulb

Today I'm going to share with you my latest creation.  I designed this beaded Christmas bulb.  I am planning on making them for Christmas gifts for my family.  I have two left to make.  I needed a dozen of them!!!  When I was in Portland in October, I made a lot of the belly bands and then when I got home I did the top and the bottom parts.  That is the quick part.  The bulb is easy to make, it just takes a lot of time to do.  I even beaded some of the belly band components on the airplane!  

I also have the pattern all set up for sale in my web store.  My hopes are to get enough patterns to have a book made!  I've been busy beading and creating the step by step pattern. Sometimes I feel like I'm stretching my time to thinly lately!!  And the holidays are upon us too!!! UGH!!!!

I gave my younger sister her bulb today.  I really don't want to wait until Christmas eve to give the bulbs.  I want them to have them early so they can hang them on their trees.

I really think I should also make one for myself!!!  I do like the pattern and this photo does not do the bulb justice.  There's a lot of sparkle to this bulb.  The Rose Montees on it don't even show up well.  They look like black or gray dots. UGH!  I'll try to get a better photo.  Maybe once the tree goes up I can get a photo of one hanging on it with the pretty branches and lights in the background!  It sounds like it will be a pretty photo, doesn't it?  LOL

Thank you SO much for stopping by today
