Bead blog recap weeks 29-31

Soft Flex Company presents the Flex Your Creativity Beading Contest

Ah, yes, I've got a few reasons not to write much lately, but I've sort of decided to begin blogging regularly (at Manekis Pärlblogg) again, starting this Monday. I sure hope I've got the energy for it back! While we're waiting, here's a recap of the last three -- rather unproductive -- blogging weeks.

Bead quizzes and tests
A few quizzes and tests related to beads for those of you who like to test your knowledge or just have some fun with personality tests. (American or Canadian? One like is to the Artbeads Bead IQ Trivia where you can win bead money.)

Swedish contest: Skärgårdsdröm
Bead shop Stareyes is hosting a jewellery design contest on the theme skärgårdsdröm, "archipelago dream" (should I explain the theme for non-swedes perhaps? Many urban Swedes spend the summer on boats or summer cabins in the archipelagos on the West coast or outside Stockholm.)

New blog design
Yes, I've re-design Manekis Pärlblogg as I'm getting ready to start blogging regularly again after my summer break. Feedback on the new design is welcomed.

Color Report for Bead & Jewelry Artists, Fall/Winter 2010

Margie Deeb has released her latest Color Report for beaders and jewellery makers. For those of you that want to stay updated with colour trends as well as those of you just looking for colour inspiration.

Vintaj Design Challenge, July
Vintaj is now accepting entries for the July challenge, titled Butterfly Orchid. As usual you'll find inspiration posts on the theme in their blog. Last day to enter is next Friday, August 13.

Bead Unique steampunk contest
More contests and more steampunk. Enter the Get Steampunked design contest for you chance to win a subscription to Bead Unique magazine and be featured in the mag. PS!
