What I've Been Up To: 21 Day Challenge ~ Day 18

This flu/crud/snot factory in me took me down for almost 2 weeks. I have so much catch up to do. I have lots of thank yous & news to share.
I feel like I've abandoned my 21 Day Challenge. I was feeling so bad, that I didn't even want the computer some days. I kinda felt guilty not even checking up on everyone. I'm committing myself to doing this again. I do need to take some advice I give my 4 year old. I tell him artwork is to relax & enjoy. I really shouldn't associate guilt with it. This quote is perfect for me today. I've saved all of Rhonna's digital artwork & quotes. They are inspiring in itself & I can't wait to do something with them. I may put them on my inspiration wall that I dream about or in my altered journal I plan on making.

Here's my artwork for today. This bracelet is called ice & I made it for Brandon's school. His class is in charge of a beauty basket for the scholarship dinner & auction. I think I'm going to make a collaged crown also, but I'm sure some people would be like "What's this for?" This is not normally a color scheme I would do, definitely out of my norm, but what is my norm anyways? This bracelet is made of Czech firepolished crystals, Swarovski crystals & a stunning focal slider bead with crystals & faux leather. The elements all kind of found each other.
I need to go to bed. I'll post more tomorrow on an award I was given, a swap I participated in, another swap I just joined in & a wonderful feature on another blog.
