Okay. Here is my creative cue homework from last Sunday when the word was "ROLLING".
I immediately thought of Tina Turner singing Rolling on the River. It reminded me of a day trip my husband and I took on the Mississippi Delta Queen riding the paddle wheeler down the Mississippi river. It also reminded me of a restored 1904 paddle wheeler we rode down the Rhine in Germany from Meintz to Cologne a few years back. That was an amazing experience.
Then I thought of the very first Marlboro Man "rolling" his cigarette out on the praire. Or Cheech and Chong rolling their choice of smoke. Well, neither of those interested me to craft!
So I decided to relate the word "rolling" to the beads I like to make. Way back in the sixties I made hundreds of beads from long triangles cut out of magazine pages. I would carefully wrap them around a knitting needle and glue the very tip so my beads would stay rolled very tightly and I could slide them off the knitting needle. I made so many I strung them on fishing line and made a full length curtain out of them for my doorway. Very hippy in those days.
Now I use either a cocktail straw or a drinking straw to roll the paper or fabric around. The straw actually stays in the bead but you don't see it. I have even used my paper towels from painting with all of the mix of colors and made beads that are quite interesting.
I have always enjoyed "ROLLING" my own beads.
