May's Beading Prompt

Happy May!  I BEADED A THING last month!!! Yes, yes, I actually did one of my own prompts, lol.  ;)  I made an amulet/vessel pendant designed by Donna Louise Sanders of Delicate Sparkles.  I love love love this pattern.  I'm actually working on a second one now!

If you're interested, the tutorial is called Juliet's Potion Bottle, and you can find it here in Donna's Etsy shop. (She has also just finished a second vessel tutorial that will be my next thing!!  You can find that one here.)

Soooooooooo... this month's prompt is more like a challenge, really.  How many tutorials do you have sitting on your hard drive (or stashed in a file somewhere) that you haven't gotten around to tackling?  No, really... how many??  WAY TOO MANY, that's how many!  So this month I challenge you to go and look through that huge stack (mine is huge, I bet yours is too) and pick one and DO IT!  Bead the thing!!  I'm going to show a few of mine that I have sitting there just waiting for me, and of course you could go and buy one of them for yourself (enabler that I am), but the challenge is to grab one you already have.  You could always do new ones next month, or after you finish making one from your stash of tutorials... ;)

I have a huge hoard.  This is only the very tippiest tip of the iceberg, here.
