Habitual Habitat of the Amy

I kept reading advice columns for how to bring sales to your etsy shop, and one thing they all said is to get a blog.

I can't say this blog has boosted my etsy sales, but it has given me yet another outlet for talking about myself, and that can't be bad--can it?

Beaded American Flag

Well, now that we've started our Christmas festivities, I thought we could fall off that cliff and tumble our way back to July--the Fourth, specifically.

This is one of the last beaded tapestries I made before the Long Dry Spell, and I know the intent was, at least in part, to use up some of the white beads (it's not my favorite shade), but it turned out really well.  You may notice that while my other beaded tapestries all have loops along the top, which I've then attached a 'hanging rod' to semi-permanently, those seem to be entirely lacking with this tapestry.

I can sew them on if whomever purchases it has any desire for them, but this tapestry is something now that it's finished. It's not just an image of a--of a dragon or a pheonix or the moon, instead it IS a flag, complete with fifty stars.  And those stars aren't quite as easy to place as I expected, either.

In addition to this flag being something all of its own, I also find that it can be many other things while not attached to a stick.  For example:

A porch decoration

A clothesline decoration

A birdhouse decoration

A lawn ornament

A rock costume

A coaster

Or, of course, a bunny decoration!

Festive options for the Beaded American Flag are endless! Get yours today!
