Wacky Wednesday

“Wacky Wednesday” has to do about wacky things I do for art.  These posts will be randomly placed on Wednesdays.

Okay, so I went to the store.  I went to the store for canvas and brushes.  The store didn’t have the size of canvas I need for a project.  I decided to go to the clearance isle for some brushes I’d seen there last week.  When I get to the clearance, all I see are beads.  I was upset because I bought these same beads for work and they weren’t on clearance!  Then, I got to thinking I could make birthday and Mother’s Day gifts with these wonderful beads that are on clearance.  I picked some out and then found the brushes I needed.  Oh, and then I remembered that the beading wire was on sale.  So, back to the regular beading isle for the wire.  But while there, the other bright and colorful beads were calling, “Valerie, Valerie, please come and look at me.”  So, I looked and looked for an HOUR AND A HALF!  I was only going to be in the store for 30 minutes.  Did I mention that these beads were half price?  Yes, indeed.  They were cheaper than the beads on clearance.  So, I finally decided on the beads I could use.  This was after my husband called to see where I was.  I had to embarrassingly admit that I’d been there for an hour already.  I took the beads that were on clearance back to their place and purchased the pretty new beads that were half price.   I should have never stumbled upon those beads.  Now I have a new addiction besides fine art.  I blame this new addiction to beading on my job and a friend who showed me how to bead.  It’s not self-inflicted, honest.
