Beadbloggers and a photo by jean of a Blythe middie
Brave in a photo titled "I saw the butterfly but the butterfly did not see me". Brave is a custom middie by the wonderful Amy Artemenko, also known as Zaloa 27. She is wearing a hand made dress, little blue and yellow earrings by me, and an embroidered hairband with a nest of eggs by Aimee Ray, aka Little Deer on Etsy.
Snap out of it, Jean! There's beading to be done!
