Learning About Cybertronian Bumblebees


For those of you who know my advanced age, you quickly understand that Transformer toys are not normally part of my vernacular. My kids are grown and no grandkids are on the horizon.

So when Beads of Courage requested a "transformer bumblebee", my imagination went to a totally different place. I was thinking about a cute little bee whose wings and head swivel in different directions. Wrong!!

Pictured above is my new Cybertronian Bumblebee. He does lots of different stuff, but I'm not sure what. Heck, I have a hard time working the tv remote.

But he will be the model for beads which I promised two little sick guys. Met both of them at the party at the hospital and will not let them down.

I figure if they can be courageous fighting their cancer, I sure can be gutsy enough to attempt these beads.

Because the kids are young, I can't make them as sculptures. They would be too fragile.
So I'll be building them on a background bead for support.

I want to make the kids happy with easily recognizable interpretations. Please wish me luck. I really NEED it.

See you tomorrow!
