Jodi, creator of Jodi Horgan Beaded Art to Wear, created this truly magnificent piece titled, Purple Circles Pendant.
Salvaged Expression created this super awesome piece titled, Ugly Hat #4 or Purple Eccentricity.
"When this weeks theme came out I knew I had a job to do, an ugly hat that demanded to be sifted through my fingers and into being," said Salvaged. "So I dove into my yarn stash which is an activity not unlike being asked to eat 3 gallons of your favorite iced cream; fun but in an ammount which could be dangerous. The result is this quirky hat which I call simply Ugly Hat #4 or Purple Eccentricity. "
Maureen, a talented artist, created this beautiful piece.
"I was so sure that my Purple Passion would be swirls and all sorts of rounded edges," said Maureen. "But I think the end product tells me: let ALL of my life--even the more mundane squares and other right angles, be ripe and overflowing with exuberance."
Lorrie, creator of Lennymud, created this fabulous piece which was inspired by Royal Purple.
Felicia Kramer, creator of Another Bright Idea, created these two gorgeous pieces titled, Purple Bleeding Hearts and Purple Mums.
"I love flowers," said Felicia. "Here’s two of my passions, digitally altered. I don’t know if purple bleeding hearts or purple mums really exist, but they do in MY world!"

"What better signifies passion than a heart? Full of love, full of passion…
This unique deep purple glass pendant was created by layering a piece of transparent red glass over a patterned blue dichroic - fused together in a kiln and then shaped into the heart shown here. I just love the color and shape!" said Marja.

Spring Spirit Worry Stone & Cozy
"The stone is from the ever-wonderful Lisianblue (Lisianblue at Artfire), from her latest mutual experimenting/care package," said Phoenix Ravenswing. "It was so wonderful, and so kyool to me that it just happened to be in the Treat colors that I was determined to find some way to add it in to this week's Treat. It's a sample, so wrapping it, my first instinct, was out. But what better thing than a carry-cozy, so you can have it w/you always? :-)"
"What do you do w/an old, nondescript, & partially-missing candle ring and the florals you're seeking to close out? You combine them and in the process come up w/this very kyool piece! :-D The star was an 'accident' of creation, but such a kyool one, this piece is going in my personal collection! :-D"
"Spirit's Rebirth Basket was created in stages. The Fantasy Floral was done first, and I experimented w/having it in vases of a couple of different heights, then was thinking of having it as a wreath when I found this battered basket at the local Reuse Center. Most people would have just seen a damaged chicken-basket, but I saw the perfect place to house my floral spray. So the rebirth of a basket, in purple. "
"PurpleSeas QuartzQosy came about as the failed beginning of a bag. I realized very quickly it was going to be off-center, so was getting ready to frog it, when I thought 'Pendant!' instead, and went in search of a quartz crystals."
"Purple Calla Lilly Bag is another experiment in bagmaking, this one more successful. The shape comes from the addition of stitches in the back. When it was finished, I was thinking that the shape of it reminded me of my sis-in-spirit's fave flower - the calla lily, and wondering if they ever came in purple. Do they? :-)"
"Purple Hazy Daisy Vasey was at first another bag, this time doing my best to not get the raised back of the Purple Calla Lily. Having accomplished this, more of less, my nest question was what to do w/the results, as the pattern I'd established had made it rather tall & thin to be a talisman bag. So, a vase cozy came to me, and the appropriate glass just happened to be sitting there on the TV table, which made it seem like kismet. :-)"
"These two pics were also happy 'accidents'. Feeling kind of punchy yesterday evening, after packing boxes all day and tackling both my past and the mess in the garage, I decided in a moment of something to snap a pic of the 'Spirit's Rebirth' basket as I was carrying it inside. Here are the happy results. :-)"
"I've been going through some spiritual challenges of late - if I hadn't already known this, the way I've pounced on this week's theme should have told me. :-D Desperately seek the peace of purple's passion, me. :-) Here's some of it in my local flower pots, I think at this point the only by-me-planted flowers that survive. :-)"
