September Component of the Month – Zombee with Laney Mead

This month it was Laney’s turn to provide the Component of the Month, and she made these cute little Zombees!  I did not take a photo of mine before I made something, if I did you would probably drop dead at this point!

Here’s my little zombee creation all done up with a cool effect from PicMonkey.  Are you aware that you now have to pay for PicMonkey – a yearly subscription.  I paid my dues because I use this program a lot and don’t have time to learn another free one. 

 So here’s my creation – a bookmark.  Yep.  Lame.  I did not have a good enough idea until it was too late to do anything about it, and I wanted to make something, anything.  So I made this bookmark.  The zombee is trying to get the fall flowers. 

My real idea at this point is to make a glass cabochon that looks like a pumpkin, bead bezel it, and make it into a cute necklace, with the zombee being part of the strap – I was going to a strap in some sort of beading pattern, maybe chenille stitch.  And add some halloweeney beads along the chain.  The main program is I don’t even have any other halloweeney beads so, this might take a while!

Please check out what everyone else made!

  1. My first idea was to do a bookmark so no yours is not lame 😉 I love it, but then I LOVE books and beads so for me this is a winning combination 😀

  2. He looks adorable at the bookmark! And I don't know if you really should change it. Often the everyday objects, that are really used in daily life, are the ones that are the most precious ones. 🙂

  3. Such a nice showcase for your zombee! I love that you incorporated the cathedral cut flowers…I had some pulled out for mine too but could NOT make them work for me. Lovely!
