Volume 8 Issue 3 March 2011

What's New in March?

Busy! The next couple of months are going to be very exciting for Blu and I. We have spring fever here and there are things blooming everywhere. Our main focus is on floral pillow beads as we are inspired by the bright fuchsia of the azalea bushes that are blooming on the corner of my garage. Every March, these huge purple flowers greet me as I walk around the side of the house. The bright yellow hibiscus are beginning to bud and even though the flowers are a few weeks away, the anticipation of many huge yellow flowers is mounting.

Orchids, I went to the local Gardenfest in Vero Beach, FL  with my trusty Nikon in hand and captured some of the most gorgeous and outlandish orchids. These beautiful flowers captured my imagination and I was overwhelmed by the explosion of colours. All these stunning images have given me a whole new palette of clay to work with.

Take a look at these photos!


PS- some of these beautiful orchids are available on my zazzle account julielcleveland' target=_blank>Julie L. Cleveland

The next blooming thing in my flower gardens, are the lovely day lilies and tiger lilies. The stalks are strong and steady and ready for the emergence of my bold orange and yellow flowers.

Floral Pillow Beads—with all this blooming and sneezing going on, I would be remiss if I did not create a few floral beads. The floral canes made their way into pillow beads for necklaces and bracelets and smaller sets for earrings.

These beads have made their way into and along with some brilliant lentil beads, are the newest additions under the beads section.

Until next month,

Julie & Blu
