Do you look in your bead stash and want to sit down to create but find yourself overwhelmed by years of purchases and too many choices? My dear auntie was in need of inspiration for some upcoming shows so I suggested this muffin challenge to her as a way of breaking through being overwhelmed by a stuffed craft room.
The challenge is simple:
Fill the cup of a muffin tin with everything you need for one project – so the focal bead, accents, chain, findings – whatever you would need to complete one project and put that in one cup. Repeat with the other 11 cups. You now have 12 projects in a portable container ready for you to put together. Grab your pliers/tools and sit somewhere comfy with your muffin tin and put each piece together knowing all your choices have already been made – your mission is to simply arrange those beads in a sassy design and complete those 12 projects as quickly as possible!
So let’s play! Grab a muffin tin and put together 12 projects by June 27th (Midnight CT). Yes, 12 projects in a week – you can do it! Take a photo of your muffin tin and one photo of all 12 projects – blog, facebook or add it to a free album like Flickr and share the link below. On the 28th, I will pick one winner to receive a Bead & Button grab bag from me valued at over $75, it will include art beads and some awesome goodies from the show.
*Addendum – if you complete 6 projects you can enter!
Pictured above are Rosanne’s treasures from Bead & Button and include art beads from: Golem Beads, Vintage Meadows, Lisa Peters and Humblebeads.
