thinking about strawberries

The August EBW Challenge theme is Summer's Juicy Fruit.  I know that the July challenge hasn't even finished yet (you can vote here through tomorrow), and I'm already thinking about the next one.  Sometimes I get an idea for a piece right away.  Other times it takes me a while or nothing really strikes me.  This is one idea that I came up with pretty quickly.

I've been browsing pictures for further inspiration.

I also took this picture recently since it seemed fitting.
I have really tried to like strawberries, but they just aren't my favorite.  I'll eat them in season with ice cream, though.

I have a decent selection of red and green beads already.  I also ordered a few from Shannon (beadsandbabble).
I have ordered the two sets on the bottom before and can't get enough of those color palettes.  I'm sure that most of you already know how much I love green so that probably isn't too much of a surprise.  I used a lot of sand color beads from the bottom right set in my July EBW Challenge piece, which were awesome as well.

The beads will be here soon, and I'll get cracking on this newest challenge.  Stay tuned.


  1. sounds yummy! can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. Oooo...this sounds like a fun one! And I bet the colors are right up my alley :)

  3. oh I'm very excited to see your berry piece!

  4. Thanks everyone! Edi, I think that they are. I finished the piece so I'll list it pretty soon.
