Suziequzie, I can completely understand the mentality. I posted this many, many, years ago on a similar thread, but there's a lot more "new" faces here.

Back in the '90's, I used to do Native American Beadwork. I learned while I was in the Boy Scouts, and continued until my mid-20's. I should still have some pictures, somewhere; I'll have to find and post a few.

It's meticulous, mind-numbingly boring work. But, I was completely addicted. I would finish one project, and immediately start another. Most projects were a "study", first of how to make the object, then afterwards, in patterns and color combinations. Sometimes I would make something just to try out some different beads.

Ok, I found one. I think I've posted this before.

Thank you Barbara, and everyone who commented on my cake. It is a true labour of love.

Allen, A friend of my grandmother taught me this art when I was about 9. I made tons of stuff and even helped adorn costumes for our grade 12 production of Annie Get Your Gun. But I too have let it go. You do absolutely beautiful and intricate work!

Here is my "famed" cupcake cake. It was all supposed to be one tower but there was too much weight and... it would have been too tall for the bride to cut the top later! LOL!! So we did a lot of creative changes on the fly. There are 15 dozen cupcakes in vanilla, carrot, cappuccino, banana and chocolate. I have learned a lot and my next cupcake wedding cake will be a lot better. But they were happy with it.

I did a cat once but have decided to stay away from animals and stick things like my suitcase cake.
