For many months this year I was engrossed in making my entries for the 2011 CYS Creative Beading Awards in Australia. I have entered this competition for the last 5 years and my boys have been entering in the Youth Division for the last 2 years. I personally find that entering competitions really stretches my creativity and takes me out of my beading "comfort zone". The thought process that goes into deciding on a theme/design is very intense and can often take much longer than the creation of the actual piece. Shopping for the components is always lots of fun but my favourite part is finally seeing the finished item and being able to breath a sigh of relief.

Anyway...VERY pleased to announce that my two boys and I are FINALISTS again and we are looking forward to hearing the results in the 2012.
