Here is what triz has to say about it when I asked her if she'd come up with something yet:
I actually finally came up with something last night: Tropical Holiday
After all the snow what could be better than escaping to a tropical paradise! :-)
I know how she feels. Even though winter hasn't really set in here yet, I'm dreaming of a warm holiday. What about you? Yes? Then take those dreams and turn them into something wonderfully beadwoven for our January/February Challenge!
Yes, this is a busy time of year and that is why we are giving you from November 30, 2008 until February 5th, 2009 to get it done! It's the first challenge of the new year so it's your exciting opportunity to get going by participating early in the year.
Any style, any technique with a majority of beadweaving is welcome.
ONE only entry allowed per person.
The piece must be created between November 30th, 2008 and February 5th, 2009.
See our FAQ here for all of the details on the rules of our challenges.
