I’ve had the pleasure of testing out some of the CiM new colours for Spring 2018! I believe these are going to be available at the Gathering so should be in stores sometime around then? Some great colours to add to the lineup.
http://www.valcoxfrit.com/ – these blends should be available within the next week or two! Stay tuned. I cannot wait to get working with these beautiful new blends.
I never had a chance to share this before – life has been so very busy. Back in September, a very dear friend of mine got married. Her wedding theme was Hawaii as her and her husband had some special memories there and were going back on their honeymoon. She wanted me to come up with something simple and pretty for her bridesmaids, flower girls, and herself. We found some lovely charms online, some were personalized for each member of the bridal party, and we also got some Hawaiian style flowers and pretty flower beads to accent. We did bracelets for the flower girls & daughter of the bride, necklaces and bracelets for the bridesmaids and maid of honor, and of course the bride herself.
Here’s me with the beautiful bride!
Then we ended up getting inspired to do matching pieces for the mother of the groom and bride.
Finally, for one of my friend’s older daughters who is a little bit less girly than the rest of the group (and plays the guitar), I did a “friendship bracelet” style piece in matching colours to what everybody else was wearing, with a guitar charm as an addition instead of a flower.
Well, here is something to get excited about – a whole new set of blends from Val Cox Frit! I just got mine last week so all I have had time to do so far is spacers, but I am absolutely loving each and every one of these blends, and I can’t wait to see more of them… when I get caught up on my orders I will be doing a ton more experimenting!
The new colours are (almost?) out from Creation is Messy! I know that Frantz should have them all in stock by mid/late February. I was lucky enough to get my hands on them a little early so here are some previews. Definitely some of these that I will be adding to my regular lineup. Are there any here that you would like to see more of? More photos coming soon as I still have quite a few rods to try out 🙂 My favorites so far are Aegean, Frozen, Duck Egg, Tortoise, Nectar, and Pollen.
And look at how pretty “Tortoise” etches…
