Tuesday Tidbits - Tiny Sculptures Using Crayons by Diem Chou

I was minding my own business, reading blog posts and other news items on my Google Reader and in Dinosaurs and Robots, I read about an artist, Diem Chou, whose crayon carvings were being featured in a US Cellular commercial. I clicked over to her gallery - the beautiful silk work in the main gallery is simply jaw-dropping-ly lovely. Her crayon carvings are featured in her Past Work section. she has an Etsy shop, too.

I thought today would be a good day to pass along the Inspiration Award that Tish of JustATish created and honored me as its first recipient. I'd like to pass it along to Lisa at A Bead A Day.

Lisa puts up a lovely feature post on Fridays, where she gives us a chance to see other people's beautiful work and shares an interview with the featured artist. And daily she posts about beautiful beads she's found, sometimes with pictures of what she's created from them. Each post is a little nugget of inspiration. Her blog is a bright and happy place to visit every day. Thank you, Lisa for being an inspiration!

You can go to Tish's blog to get the original sized picture for passing along. You don't have to win it to use it, just make someone's day by sharing how they inspire you.

My tid-bits for the day, beaded hair clips (from Rings & Things, btw). I'm going to take the blanks and miscellaneous beads and wire and make them at the con - they're easy and fast to make and I can sell them inexpensively. They also look pretty cute when they're clipped in:
